Travel Tips

  1. Change money before you leave the country.

    You may also change money in the airport

    or a bank in Playa del Carmen or Tulum.   

    There are also ATM machines.

  1. Buy the bulk of your groceries in Playa del

    Carmen or Tulum  (San Francisco

    supermarket). Bring a bag that keeps food

    cold or buy a cooler & ice. There are small

    grocery stores in Mahahual but no


  1. Your speedometer is in kilometers per hour.

    A kilometer is 6/10s of a mile.

  1. Gas stations are all PEMEX with the same

    gas prices. Watch that they start filling

    your tank on zeros. Gas stations only take

    pesos. There is a gas station right before

    the turn off to Uvero to fill up or you might

    want to do so in Carrillo Puerto.

  1. Road speed bumps, called “topes”, are

    designed to slow you down. Drive extremely

    slow so you don’t damage your car.
