|Car Rentals in Cancun:
You DO NOT need a 4WD vehicle for travel to Playa Sonrisa
The beach road is rough, but passable, even in stormy conditions.
However the extra clearance provided by an SUV may make the
trip to & from town more comfortable.
Most of the major rental companies like Avis, National & Budget have
agencies in Cancun, but there are also a number of small companies that
may or may not be more economical on a given day, and may or may not
provide service "just as good" or "just as bad" as the big ones.
(How's that for a disclaimer? We've heard very good & very bad stories
about the majors & independents alike, but that applies to
car rentals everywhere - not just in Mexico).
Warning> Do NOT rent from Hertz
They have a contract clause prohibiting travel "off pavement" and
used that excuse to Royally Screw a guest who's car broke down
for mechanical reasons unrelated to our beach road.
