driver or car rental

My sister and I will be located in Playa del Carmen, and historically we travel off the beaten track. Isolated beaches for snorkeling, the sites (ruins) at the break of dawn, before the tourist arrive.

Should we rent a car ? best deal, or better off to hire a driver? Who do you recommend?

We always rent a car. However, if you plan on driving, BE SURE to read up on driving in Mexico before you go. There are some odd rules,-- like turning on your left turn signal means for the guy in back of you to pass you, which can result in an accident.
