Re: [txp] Safety in DF and Southern Mexico

Be sure to book your vehicle in the DF a long time in advance and CONFIRM the day before you need it. DF friends booked a van of the kind you want with an airport car rental company and failed to confirm. The day they went to pick it up, no van-type vehicle was available. The company offered them an economy-size car instead--no dice! They had to race around the airport car rental places with their fingers crossed, looking for a rental to accommodate 4 adults and 4 children.

They finally found one, but it turned out to be a lemon and a half. Between the DF and Villahermosa: two flat tires and a serious suspension problem. The tires were mostly bald and the suspension a total mess. Fortunately no one was injured, but the resulting road delays were impressive and frustrating: 15 hours from the DF to Villahermosa.

Rent early and confirm!
