Unhappy Renting Cars/Jeeps in Mexico

But, doing it on your own, you risk having a breakdown or even an accident. I know of several people who have had bad experiences. So, just be aware of the risks. And, I agree with Trip that there really isn't much of a need to do this in those 2 ports.
Remember one thing. if your in an accident your "guilty" before even having a trial and are likely to be jailed in Mexico for an indefinite period.
