We are thinking about renting at car at Progreso and driving to Uxmal. I know that it will cost about $120, but still a savings over the cruise excursion for 2 adults and 2 children.
We will be 2 women (sisters) traveling with two kids (ages 11 and 13). We are wondering if we will be safe (we will only be driving in the daytime). We are also wondering if it is easy enough to find Uxmal, or are we likely to get lost? We have a good sense of direction, we have a limited knowledge of spanish, but we do have a sense of adventure.
As an alternative, does anyone know if you can hire a taxi driver for a day tour? Any recommendations would be helpful. Thanks.
$120 a day is VERY expensive! We have rented vehicles for an average of maybe $65 per day and with insurance add another $10 per day. Renting a car is fun but you must keep in mind the time, (SHIPS TIME BTW) and allow yourself more than enough time to get back to the ship as it will sail without you if you don't make it and then you have to fly to the next port or home at your expense.
