Hi. My husband and i are going to cozumel in two weeks. We are debating about adding on the transports that run $90 round trip or just renting a car. We are thinking car becuase then he can do a couple night dives with the company he prefers, which does not do boat pick ups for the night dives, so he has to get into the town for the take off time. otherwise he will be forced to take a taxi for the dive or dive with the hotel instead.
My question is this- we have read some pretty bad cautions about renting a car in cozumel- that the company (even a big name like hertz) will say they don't have any cars left. or they force you to get super expensive insurance which doubles or triples the cost. Is there anyone out there that has personally rented a car and can tell us of their experience? i want to know if these cautions are real or if that is just the 10% of the time situation.
