Does anyone know whether the road from El Tuito to Mayto has been improved lately? The bus used to run out there years ago, but lost too many driveshafts. Has it started up again? Gracias!

I don't about improved but it fine to drive. Just be careful and watch for speed bumps. Salud.

Good to know - thanks! If I can take a bus rather than rent a car, that would be my preference, but will check the bus service when I get to town..

Last time we were on that road (two years ago), we saw a huge tarantula 🕷 right in the middle of it. We all screamed! Then we cranked our heads to look back at it as we drove on by. Haha.

There is no bus service. You can take an Uber taxi (El Tuito style) lol, it is a motorcycle with a big box that holds 4 people. There are a couple of regular taxis in El Tuito. The road is open but every-time it rains they have to go in and fix it.

Deana saw a tarantula, we saw a coral snake.

Thanks, yes I have taken a taxi before and will do it again! Anything to see Fernando and Maricela at Hotel Rinconcito, but really don't want to encourage anyone to go - figure most here are not up for it anyway. Good for you for making the trip!

It is a fun trip and Mayto is well worth it. Enjoy it before it develops and the serenity, charm and beauty are lost.

We were on it last spring. They were just finishing repairs from the previous November storm. Would not be surprised it was damaged again.

There was some nasty potholes.

Love Mayto, just drive carefully!
