  1. Great pictures! Do you know if there is anywhere in Playa, or nearby, where you can rent old VW cars, vans or buggies for the day?

    • Hello Jakie

      On Cozumel you can rent buggies and older VW Bugs. In Playa there was a place on 10th Avenue between 8th and 10th that rented buddies or modified cars. Just remember that usually any coverage with your credit card does not cover modified cars and in Mexico you need to purchase liability insurance.

  2. I’m looking for transportation for my wedding guests from the hotel to the chapel, a limo for the wedding party and a vintage car for myself and my fiancĂ©

    • Hello Christina

      We do not know of any company that does vintage car rental here. Vintage cars take a pounding with salt and sun. You might find a VW bug with a sunroof and that would be very Mexican and sort of vintage. You will have to search around but we don’t have any suggestions for you, sorry.

    • We don’t have any clue either. We only have seen scooters for rent or cars. You can always rent a golf cart on Isla Mujeres or Isla Holbox.
