    We have created yet another waterfall to mask the sound of the trucks that pass our pueblo, it seems to be working. Thanks for your feedback.

    Yes, it is safe to drive from Tulum to Valladolid. We will recomend you to drive in the day instead of driving in the night. Make sure to fill the tank, pay in cash and you will be there in less than 2 hours.
