To Mayan Beach Garden From Cancun:

Take the main highway (307) south out of Cancun. The concrete highway follows the coast and continues to Tulum. After Tulum the road veers away from the coast and goes around the Sian Ka'an nature reserve. You'll note the landscape change as you drive closer to the jungle. Continue on to Felipe Carrillo Puerto. You can get gas in this town and take advantage of the wonderful snacks that the locals sell at the gas station. If you have time, stop at the market there, its a good example of a traditional Mexican market. Continue on 307 through the small town of Limones. Four kilometers past Limones, turn left to Mahahual at the Cafetal junction. It is well marked. Drive about 54 kilometers. Approximately 200 meters past the PEMEX gas station take the first road left which is poorly marked. (NOTE: If you get all the way to the lighthouse, you've missed the turn off.) Follow the road about 9.2 kilometers. Turn right at the first Road you see after km 9 marker. Turn left when the road makes a "T"and go another 10 km. Mayan Beach Garden will be on your right. All Placer properties are within 1/2 km of Mayan Beach Garden Inn. The Coordinates for MBG are:

Road Conditions: (updated 18-Jan-2014)

  • The highway south of Tulum is a beautiful stretch of road. There isn't too much activity along this stretch. If driving in the dark, please slow down and watch for pedestrians along this stretch who may be wearing dark clothing.
  • The road from junction at 307 to the turnoff to Mahahual is great and is fairly well marked! There is, however one or two potholes - please watch for them.
  • The paved road to Uvero/Rio Indio/Placer/Tampalam has a few potholes that you should watch for and signage is poor. Please watch for this area and slow down around curves. We have painted red triangles on the road in areas that you should take particular care around.
  • The beach road has not been graded since April of 2010- and rainy season of 2014 has been brutal, so watch for that especially after rain. In the dark, it is easliest to see potholes along the beachroad because your headlights show them to their best (or worst) advantage.
  • The road to and From Chetumal is a concrete highway. Please watch the Topes when you go through towns.
  • As always - please slow down at night - there are no lights along the highway and it can be very dark. Watch for pedestrians, bicycles, large birds and animals.
