Default Cozumel - Rental car question

Do we need to make arrangements in advance in order to rent a vehicle in Cozumel? I am thinking that will be difficult since we don't know where we will be docking/tendering. Anyone walked off and rented onsite without reservations?

Thanks!

I agree I would do the Taxi thing too. Cozumel is a very small island.

We decided to rent a jeep to get us to the beach we wanted to go to. We got a pretty good deal and on top of that they gave us coupons to get into Playa Mia for $3 each instead of the $12 it regularly cost. Only thing they weren't up front about is charging an additional $10 for gas when we brought it back. We probably used less than a gallon, so ask up front if what they quote you is ALL they charge.

Okay, I'm a wet blanket on this one. Any mechanical vehicle, for land or sea use, will not be maintained as well as it would here in US. Mexicans are often great mechanics, but parts are very expensive. I know personally of several people injured bacause of that, including my hubby. Please consider a taxi. The drivers want to keep themselves safe, and so are more responsible about maintenance.
