We are thinking of getting some sun around late March, and were looking to travel to Mexico, as we have never been.
My husband and I will be going with our 2 year old, and we are not particular interested in going to an all inclusive resort. Our plan is loosely to spend some days in Playa Del Carmen for some beach stuff, spend a night or 2 in Tulum and a night or 2 at Chichen Itza. I always enjoy ruins and archeology, and would love to see the world heritage site.
I looked at the tours from the big tourist towns, but it looks like it is a 3 hour bus ride each way, and there is no way I will do that with 2 year old. It looks like it is perfectly viable to find a hotel close to Chichen Itza and drive there ourselves at our own pace (which would also make it easier to visit places like Coba and Ek' Balam).
I was wondering if anyone here has any experiences driving in Mexico in the Yucatan? From what I have researched on the internet it seems like it is pretty safe, and it should be straight forward to rent a car in Cancun, especially if we reserve from home.
Any other tips would also be appreciated!
