Default Anyone rented a car in Cozumel or Cayman?

We will be renting a car on both islands with our 2 boys, ages 11 and 8. Any advice on keeping safe and would it be advisable to keep our stuff locked in the car. Has anyone had any bad experiences and what would you do different?

I wouldnt rent a car there... those people drive like bats out of hell... and this is coming from a driver that drives crazy himself. You may want to check the safety on that before you do it. Just a thought =)

We've rented vehicles in Cozumel several times. Its an easy island to find your way around, and you can stop at several beaches, and still have time to go into town.

The driver's are a bit "crazed" but, no match for Kuki <G>

Keep in mind that Grand Cayman is British so they drive on the other side of the road -- not easy to get used to.
Smooth sailing,

We have always rented a jeep in Cozumel and have 3 children ranging in age from 7-17. Our children love the open air feeling of the no roof thing. Bring lots of sunscreen and hats with ties so they don't blow off. We have always carried a backpack with us to carry the personal things and when we get out of the car, we grab all things not attached just incase! But do rent, you'll love it, I promise!
