I posted another topic regarding 2 weeks that my husband and I are going to spend going from Cancun - Merida - Palenque - San Cristobal and then back up to Cancun (flight home To Australia leaves from Cancun). It will be during mid to late December.
He is experienced with overseas driving (me not) and wants to hire a car to give us freedom should we want to go see other places, move on from a town and move around etc.
Can someone please tell me if it is safe to drive this route, safe to leave the car overnight in towns, are the roads good or any other general advice when it comes to hiring a car and driving this route?
The bus was definitely the cheaper option but he would prefer the car hire.
Thanks everyone :-)
