What better way to explore the Yucatan than to map your own route? If you’re a fan of flexibility than driving is a perfect option for your trip, it will allow you the freedom to stumble upon a natural phenomenon or villages you may not have found using just public transportation. We know that the thought of driving in a different country can seem a little stressful but if you keep these tips in mind you will be ready to go!


Mexico has a wonderful roadside assistance service called  the Green Angels. These are auto mechanics in green utility trucks who patrol the major roads. They can provide gas, oil, tire repair and other minor maintenance, as well as arrange towing. They only charge for parts. Their labor is free and they don’t accept tips. They have been operating on Mexican roads since 1960.


Driving in the Yucatan is a recommended choice as long as you keep your normal driving guidelines in mind. By choosing to drive you will be able to customize your own trip and really see what the Yucatan has to offer!
