Tips for renting a car in Cancún

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in Cancún including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on 11 April 2024.
  • Roads in Cancun can vary in quality. While major highways are generally well-maintained, some local roads may have potholes or uneven surfaces. Be cautious, especially during the rainy season, and try to limit your speed when driving over uneven surfaces. In addition, it's common to encounter speed bumps, known as "topes" in Mexico, especially in residential areas and near schools. These speed bumps can be quite pronounced, so be attentive and reduce your speed when approaching them.
  • When driving in Cancun, you will want to make sure that you always have a bit of cash on you. Mexico has an extensive network of toll roads (cuotas) that are generally well-maintained and provide faster travel between cities. Keep some local currency (Mexican pesos) on hand, as toll booths often do not accept credit cards. Gas stations in Cancun and throughout Mexico may not always accept credit cards, so you will also likely need cash for this.
  • As you drive in Cancun, you will likely come across some infrastructure that you are not used to. For example, Road signs in Mexico are usually in Spanish, although you may see some signs for major roads or sights that are translated into English as well. It's helpful to have a basic understanding of common Spanish traffic signs in order to make sure that you are driving as safely as possible. Some international symbols are also used, which makes things easier.

  • What should I be aware of regarding traffic conditions when driving in Cancun?

    Cancun, especially in the downtown area, can experience heavy traffic, particularly during peak hours and tourist seasons. Plan your travel accordingly and be prepared for potential delays. In some areas, you may encounter street vendors, stray animals, or slow-moving vehicles. Stay alert and drive cautiously to avoid any unexpected obstacles. Construction projects and road maintenance are common in Cancun. Be aware of signs indicating construction zones, and slow down as needed. Potholes and uneven surfaces may be present in areas under construction. Cancun has roundabouts, and understanding how to navigate them is important. Yield to traffic already in the roundabout and be aware of the correct lanes for your intended exit.

  • Does Cancun International Airport (CUN) have rental cars relatively accessible to travelers?

When picking up your rental car, you'll need to provide a valid driver's license, a major credit card in the driver's name, and any other documentation required by the rental company. Remember that the legal driving age in Mexico is 18, but car rental companies may have their own age requirements and additional fees for drivers under 25.

If crossing international borders is allowed, you may need special permission from the rental company.

Certain vehicle types, such as luxury or specialty vehicles, may have stricter limitations on cross-border travel.
