Is the road repaired or does it still resemble a bombing range covered the full distance inside the park with huge craters, too big to be called potholes?
If so, is there someplace safe to leave a car where it won't get ripped off and be picked up by boat for the trip to the lodge?
I am never driving over that road again unless it gets properly graded.
Some people belive this is the worst road, it is usually graded once every one or two years, so with rain it gets really bad. That is why we do now boat transfer from 3 miles after Tulum, avoiding the other 30 miles full of holes.
We do 45 minutes by boat in flat water (most of the time the lagoon side is flat). Please call us for more info
The last time we were there the road was pretty bad, but not the worst I've seen. It appears that they plow the road flat and fill holes at least once a year, but the rain and tropical weather just destroy it again and again. Honestly, I'm not sure that anywhere along that road would be safe to leave your car for any period of time. On the last trip we went on, my father and I went fishing on our own at the Boca Paila pass which is about half way to the lodge. In the less than two hours we were gone, someone somehow unlocked the car with a wire hanger, stole a fishing reel and our spare tire, and then re-locked the car. We had no idea it even happend until we returned the car and they told us it had been stolen. If you're willing to risk that happening, there are numerous places where a boat could get you, but I don't think that's advisable.
