KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Cuernavaca

  • Car rentals in Cuernavaca offer several advantages over relying on public buses or trains. A rental car provides convenience and will allow you to explore the city and its surrounding attractions at your own pace. Additionally, renting a vehicle from Cuernavaca car rentals will enable you to travel to remote sites that may not be easily accessible by public transportation. Furthermore, car rentals in Cuernavaca will grant you the freedom to create a personalized itinerary, accommodating spontaneous detours and last-minute changes to your plans. Some of Cuernavaca's attractions accessible via a rental car include the Urban State Park Barranca de Chapultepec, Borda Garden, and the Robert Brady Museum.
  • Mexico City International Airport (MEX), Toluca International Airport (TLC), and Puebla International Airport (PBC) are the three main airports that serve the Cuernavaca metropolis. Upon arrival at MEX, go directly to the shuttle bus pick-up station located outside baggage claim, from which you'll be shuttled to the car rental facility, which is about a quarter mile from the terminal. At TLC, you'll find car rental counters in the terminal, in close proximity to the baggage claim. PBC features rental counters in the Arrivals Hall of the airport's terminal. Additionally, you'll need to be at least 21 years old with a valid US driver's license and an International Driver's Permit to rent a car in Mexico. Moreover, some of the major car rentals in Cuernavaca charge extra fees for drivers below the age of 25.
  • Driving in Cuernavaca is shaped by a blend of local customs and traffic regulations. While official traffic rules exist, they are often interpreted flexibly. Cuernavaca's roads are generally well-maintained and paved. Traffic can be chaotic, with a seemingly laissez-faire attitude towards lane discipline and occasional disregard for stop signs. However, drivers communicate through a combination of hand signals, honks, and nods, fostering a sense of cooperation. Speed limits are often exceeded, and one must be prepared for sudden lane changes and the occasional speed bumps. Pedestrians often dart across streets, requiring alertness and quick reflexes. Despite the apparent chaos, Cuernavaca drivers generally display remarkable patience and courtesy, making the driving experience enjoyable.
  • Cuernavaca encounters peak rush hour traffic, typically during weekday mornings and evenings. In the mornings, from around 7 am to 9 am, and in the evenings, from around 5 pm to 7 pm, the major roads such as Avenida Emiliano Zapata, Avenida Morelos, and Avenida Vicente Guerrero become congested with vehicles. To navigate through the traffic, you should consider alternative routes like Avenida Plan de Ayala, which provides some traffic relief. Additionally, driving in Cuernavaca can be quite challenging during the rainy season, which usually occurs from around June to September. Heavy rainfall leads to flooded streets and reduced visibility, making road conditions hazardous and traffic even more congested. Therefore, it's advisable for drivers to drive carefully on the slippery roads, ensuring safety.
  • Book your rental car in Cuernavaca at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Cuernavaca are around 5% cheaper than other car types, on average

The car had not been cleaned when we received it- there was sand and the seats had food stains. One of the tires must of had a nail because we had to fill with air every day we had it. It just wasn’t quite what we were expecting from a car rental place located in a decently nice plaza. The experience was okay.
