If you are going to be driving, keep $20 in your wallet and leave the rest of your money in a different pocket. If they say something about taking your license to the police station.... say go ahead and tell them that you will follow them down there. Ask for their name and badge number too. Most of the time that will make them give up all together.
It sucks that it happens, but that's how it is there.

The cabs which we took alot because I was there alone with 3 of my children, were also simple and really didn't cost much since everything is seconds away. We also requested the same cab driver all week, we had his card and he came right away, he was great, not running the clock the entire time, waiting for us in town, ect. I loved cancun and found some of the nicest people I have experienced in all the places I have travelled, I can't wait to go back.
A LOT of folks get around on scooters or mopeds. We witness the craziest stuff you could ever imagine... about 6 months ago, I SWEAR, no lie...witnessed the most insane disregard for safety on the planet.
1 scooter, 5 passengers. (2 adults 3 children) Guess how many had helmets?
2 children standing on floor / sitting in adult driver's lap / feet. Woman on back with (3rd infant breastfeeding! )
I wish I would have snagged a photo....

When we get married out there we are having our TA provide transfers for everyone so they will not have to deal with any of this!
