My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights in March 2012. We'd been looking forward to it our whole trip to be staying in a jungle hideaway, and it was certainly worth the wait. I appreciate attention to detail, and Mari and Lou bowled...More

This place was very nice, quiet and off the beaten path which we wanted. The hubby and I like to go for walks in the evening, and this wasn't the best neighborhood to go for a scenic evening stroll. The owners made a nice breakfast...More

It has been almost a year since your visit to LSM last July. Are you sure you are thinking of the right B&B? 1. Summer is the rainy season, so some mosquitoes are to be expected. There are less in the jungle than the beach...More

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.
