How to get from Akumal to Chichen Itza

Can anyone reccomend the best and safest way to get from Akumal to Chichen Itza?

We are considering renting a car, but would prefer a cheaper (and safer) option if there is one. Would you feel comfortable driving from Akumal/Tulum to Chichen Itza? It's a little over 2 hours of driving inland.

I am seeing mixed reviews on renting a car vs. going without a car. We arrive next week, so I would like to make a rental reservation by tomorrow, so if you have any information, please share! Easywayrentacar.com is where I plan to rent from if that is what we decide to do.

We rented a car and just drove. Note, it will probably be closer to 2.5 hours each way, as from Akumal you will have to drive to Tulum and take the free road to Coba, when you get to the roundabout shortly before Coba ruins, take the turnoff for Chemax and Valladolid.
