early morning flight

Hi all,
We will be renting a car for a week, and unfortunately our return flight leaves at 7:45 a.m.  Our options are 1) stay in Puerto Morelos our last night - would mean leaving ~4am to drop off the car, right?  Or 2) return the car our last evening and stay at one of the hotels near the airport, taking the shuttle in the morning. Or 3) Take bus/taxi to and from Puerto Morelos and rent our care there.
Suggestions please?

    Where are you staying?  That would be important to know in giving you some options.

    I'd drop the car the night before and stay in a hotel near the airport.  You may not even  be able to drop your car off that early.

    What I did a couple of years ago was I dropped the rental car off a day early and then an employee of the rental company gave me a ride back to Puerto Morelos where I had earlier dropped off my wife. I think I gave him 100 pesos. Next morning we took a taxi to the airport, 350 pesos, which is less than $20 US. For a flight as early as yours I would go to the taxi stand on the square and make arrangements the day before to be picked up early the next morning. The taxistas love the fare to the airport, as it is one of the better ones they will get.

    Wag more....bark less.

    Planning to stay our first and last nights at least, in PM - not sure where / not sure about other nights yet.
    We have narrowed our choice down to either renting from the airport, and returning it the night before our flight, or renting and returning from PM.  
    Opinions?

    If you rent from Isis they will pick up the car.  I would get rid of it on the last day and just take a taxi or private transfer from PM.  Canada Transfers picked us up at 4am in PM in November and the driver got there 15 minutes early.

    When making your rental arrangements you will be asked the time to drop off. They will work with you and your schedule. All agencies want you to report back to others how great they were.
