Has anyone rented a car in Chetumal?

We are flying into Cancun late January for a five week trip. I would like to bus to Chetumal, rent a car and tour the local area. My plan is to stay flexible, only rent the car for trips when it is needed or we are staying 'out-of-the-way'. The search results for Chetumal car rentals, all seem to rent out of Cancun. Has anyone rented a car in Chetumal and if so, where?

ATM Currencies in Mexico

Hi folks
Can anyone tell me if ATMs anywhere in Mexico City dispense currencies other than Mexican Pesos?
There are many countries where ATMs at airports, in particular, dispense as many as six different currencies.
If I can get Euros out of a machine in Mexico City it'll save me bringing some to exchange later in Cuba.

Thanks

New Years in Tulum suggestion

Looks like I'll be in the Tulum area over the 1st. I am not a party animal, prefer watching a sunset, stars
come out, campfires to be around, rather than bars. Any such thing? I keep looking for alternatives to Tulum for New Years Eve, I'll be coming from Chetumal (Xpujil). The hotel scene in Tulum doesn't sound like it'll be
mellow on New Years. I know, that's when people party. I prefer not to. Suggestions on places to stay.
I want to see Sian Ka'an, and the beaches and ruins.

thanks

Gas station scams in Cozumel, Mexico

There have been wide spread gas station scams at all three PEMEX gas stations reported by tourists over the years. I went to one of them (on 95 Av Sur & Av Lic. Benito Juarez --the road from San Gervasio Mayan Ruins to downtown). a few days ago to fill up tank before returning the rental car. At the gas station, I only drove ~80 kilometers on a full tank. The 2 attendants asked me to show them how much gas I have left (2/3 full). Then they filled up my tank for more than US$51. I told…

Non stop flight Oslo-Mexico- Need a ESTA for flying through US Airpace?

I was booking a direct flight from Norway to Cancun, and a warning came up that I have to confirm my info on the airlines website 10 days in advance (name, passport number, etc), or I can be denied check-in and boarding since the flight is traveling through US air territory.
I assume its the APIS.

So far, so good. But the last sentence states that the US Goverment can deny me to even enter the plane, and that made me a bit insecure.

I got my ESTA revoked two years ago, applied for a visa at…
