The review was "perfect" Thanks for mentioning the restaurant and beer store in Macario Gomez. Glad you were able to get around with public transportation, this is not easy for all guests. You had a great attitude.

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.
