What kind of rental car should I get for Mérida?
Sure, you can do Mérida without a rental car. But with loads to do here, having one would make your trip more convenient and fun. If you’re planning to get out of town and into the great outdoors, opt for a vehicle with some power. A mid-size or full-size SUV will get you to the area’s rocky coastlines in style and comfort. Spending the majority of your time right in the city? A small, economical car is your best bet. Driving around busy streets and squeezing into tight parking spots will be a cinch with one of these.
Should I get a luxury rental car in Mérida?
For some people, owning a prestige vehicle is little more than a lofty dream. But renting your dream car can easily be a reality! Experience the thrill of rolling into town in a classy sports car, even if it’s only for a day or two. Or perhaps all you’re looking for is a reliable set of wheels to bring you safely from A to B. Extravagant or economical? Whatever you decide, there’s a rental car to suit your style in Mérida.
