My husband,daughter and myself are planning to be in Cozumel in Febuary. I thought that we would rent a car for a day and go to the different beaches, especially Playa Plancar(spelling). I thought that this would save us money and be a great way to see the island,however, I've been reading that the Police will sometimes stop people and try to extract money from them. This scares me especially since our daughter has Down Syndrome and her safety is paramount to us.(any childs safety is the first concern.)
So here's my question, would it be worth it to just rent a cab to sort of drive us around all day? This is our first cruise and our first time out of the country and we really want to get as true a flavor of the island as we can.
Thanks for letting me ramble.
