Top tips for renting a car in Playa del Carmen

  • Playa del Carmen, Mexico is a beautiful vacation destination for many people, but it is also a remote place which is easiest explored and discovered on your own four wheels. Rent a car for your time in Playa del Carmen to benefit from the flexibility and freedom it can give you. Also bear in mind that the nearby Theme Park and Amusement Park are best reached by car in less than a quarter of an hour and cannot be reached by public transport easily.
  • Even though International Airport Cozumel is closer to Playa del Carmen in miles, the best choice is to fly into Cancun International Airport and rent a car from their on-site car hire center, which features the most car agencies in the vicinity including Alamo, Thrifty, and Avis. The drive to Playa del Carmen will take about 45 minutes and goes along the coastal 307 road.
  • Driving in Mexico can be daunting for some travelers at first, with safety concerns and the Mexican police who are known to be especially strict with tourists from abroad. However, as long as you adhere to the speed limits, check the car is properly insured, and have all the right documents in place, driving in Playa del Carmen should be no problem; travelers will get to explore the beautiful Tulum Ruins and more within their own time frame and with peace of mind.
  • During the morning hours, traffic mostly keeps flowing in Playa del Carmen, but there is some increased traffic during lunch time, around 11am-1pm, when the Cancún/Mexico 307 can get especially clogged up. In the afternoon between 3 to 6pm, traffic also increases regularly during the weekdays so, if possible, try to avoid going out during these times, or circumvent the traffic via the many little side alleys.
  • Book your rental car in Playa del Carmen at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Unless otherwise indicated, speed limits dictate 60 km/h (37 mph) on streets which do not indicate a clear limit, up to 90 km/h (56 mph) on rural roads with two lanes, and up to 110 km/h (68 mph) on highways.

How are gas prices in Playa del Carmen?

Getting petrol in Mexico is pretty cheap with an average price of Mex$14 per liter ($0.68 USD, which means $2.72 per gallon). Scams at Mexican petrol stations still happen now and then, so it is important to check the petrol filler beforehand to ensure all numbers are set to zero.

Where are the best places to park in Playa del Carmen?

Finding a parking spot in central Playa del Carmen can be tricky, but street parking is possible, especially on the northern side of the city.

There are also public parking lots, such as the Parking Lot in Calle 8 Nte 2 or in 15 Avenida Nte LB, which are always a good choice.
