Default Re: Re: Renting a jeep/car/scooter in Cozumel??

Some friends rented a jeep for the above price and asked for (were not offered like you are in the US) for the insurance. If you rent a vehicle of any kind BUY THE INSURANCE!!!!! In Mexico you are guilty until inocent and you owe whatever the other driver asks before they will let you out of Mexico even on a cruise. You could owe thousands on the spot so please please please ask for and BUY the INSURANCE!!@!

Ok off my soap box.. They have a moped path to the right of the road now (just got back last Sunday) but it only goes almost the way to Chankanaab Park and then you are on the road with no shouldres. the cabbies drive like mainiacs so as we suggested to our friends rent a jeep - it is much safer. If you rent a moped have eyes in back of your head for those mad cabbies taking those blind turns real wide! Unfortuantely people have died on mopeds there so this warning is real. Also when we stayed on land in Cozumel we wandered why the Carnival ship had not left as we knew she should have - she finally did leave way late. It was because 4 teenagers drunk flipped a jeep killing 2 and they were from the ship. Debbie
