We are flying into Cancun in December and arriving late Sunday evening. We are staying in Akumal for the week. I would like to save us some trouble and rent a car at the airport and drive down to Akumal late. Does that seem safe? We are a family of four with two kids. Otherwise we would stay that night near the airport and drive down the next day.
Our hotel offered a transfer ($160 round trip) but then we would need to rent a car in Akumal and it seems like the cost of the rental car for the week would be cheaper than paying for a transfer as well as rental car once we get to Akumal.
We have been to this region before and rented a car for one day from our Cancun hotel - and drove to Tulum and back. We haven't been driving at night in this area. Any suggestions?
