If your trip to La Isla is all organized but your itinerary is looking a little empty, let us give you a few hints and tips.
Leave that rental car at the hotel and start using those legs. Not far from this neighborhood's center, Cancun Interactive Aquarium is worth a look. Marlin Beach and Tequila Museum are two other nearby sights that lure large numbers of travelers like yourself.

Here on a work trip? You'll be happy to know that Cancun Convention Center has some fantastic hotels and restaurants nearby. It's located 2 miles from La Isla.
A good car should be comfortable, reliable, and functional. So, we'd suggest opting for a full-size car or an SUV if you'd like to use La Isla as a starting point to road trip around Cancun. These larger vehicles have more legroom and a powerful engine to take you across the highways in safety and comfort. If your goal is to spend most of your time in the city, a car with good fuel-efficiency, like a compact or an economy, will fit your needs. These nifty cars are terrific when it comes to maneuvering those bustling streets!
You'll be happy to hear that there's an impressive variety of both high-end and economy rental vehicles in La Isla. What you go with will depend on your funds and what you plan to do. Specialty and prestige vehicles offer the best in comfort and class. If you're splashing out, why not pick a high-end SUV, or perhaps a stylish mid-sized vehicle? On the other hand, if you're just after a car to get you around town at the cheapest price possible, you're better off choosing a no-frills compact vehicle (or something else that won't burn a hole in your wallet).
Not knowing the traffic laws is like heading away on a road trip without a map. Settle in behind the wheel in La Isla with these handy driving tips:
You'll be cruising along the right-hand side of the road in La Isla. Even though you may be comfortable with the traffic rules, we recommend driving with extra care in places you've never been.

It's relatively easy to find somewhere to park in La Isla, though it can be a challenge to get a spot in the busier streets. Staying at a hotel that provides guests with on-site parking is always a smart idea.

Generally, your car rental company will charge the amount fined to your credit card. Alternatively, the company may share your contact information with local authorities so they can issue a fine to you directly.
Seat belts are mandatory in Cancun. Having said that, these rules may not apply for some vehicles, like those used by public transportation networks.
It is prohibited to use your cell phone while driving in La Isla, and you may also be hit with a fine for simply holding a phone if you're in control of a vehicle. That said, the use of hands-free or Bluetooth functions is allowed, as long as your focus remains on the road.
In La Isla, it is a criminal offence to operate a vehicle with a BAC (blood alcohol content) above 0.08%. If you're in the mood for a few drinks, it's a good idea to leave the rental car behind.
Turning on a red light isn't permitted in La Isla. Always be watching for traffic signs and lights so you don't breach any road rules.
