GOOD TO KNOW

 

  • Tulum and its Maya site are not worth a stop. It has become too touristy and artificial.
  • We strongly recommend to have your own car through a rental. In Bacalar, our hotel was very remote and we appreciated our freedom.
  • We were amazed by the friendliness of the Mexican population even in the more touristy areas.
  • We met Mexican tourists in their own country. We felt integrated with the local population.
  • The roads are in good conditions.
  • We felt safe during our whole trip.
