Transportation Methods

Depending on where you are, you will choose the ideal method of transportation for you. For example, from a City Car Rental service if you are going to visit the main beaches of Cancun and its surroundings, to something as simple as a conventional public transportation service to get to the beach of your choice in Chiapas.

If you choose to travel to places like Puerto Vallarta, getting a Puerto Vallarta Car Rental will be the ideal service for you. In Yucatan, you can hire a private transportation agency or take any bus from the station downtown. It’s as easy as you want it to be.

Tips before you visit hidden gems in Mexico

Before visiting the beautiful beaches of Mexico, don’t forget to pack only what you need. However, the beaches are among the most popular places for locals. And you will also have to walk a couple of kilometres to get to some of them.

We recommend that you always carry a towel and environmentally friendly sunscreen. You don’t want to ruin the pristine ocean. If you want to eat on the beach, you should know that in most of them you will not find restaurants nearby (or at least not inside the beach). So, if you decide to bring your food, you will have to pick up all the waste or garbage from them. Leave it how you found it.

Before your trip, you can make a route of beaches to visit. This will help you manage your time efficiently. And you will be able to see many more places around them. You can also research attractions near the beaches mentioned in this post to learn more about the culture of the city you are visiting in any destination in Mexico.
