went to casa violeta for a late lunch pizza on a tip off from a guy – he was right , what a really good pizza , great rich tomato garlic sauce on delicious base . perfect pizza . the food here is so much better than om next door . it was about $110 peso . well worth it dont think we will get better than this pizza in tulum .

had to return car to tulum car rental aka america car rental . our 2 day booking we decided to extend for rest of holiday [another 12 days] . had a small atos booked from cancun but they didnt have any so they gave us a fiat panda [same mini economy group] . in tulum he closed old contract to open new one . but then for new car he wouldnt give us a small car again despite having the fiat i just gave back , and 2 chevy cars there ??? instead he wanted to give us some bigger piece of crap. i told him i wanted a small car . after 1 hour of being messed about and lied to saying both the chevvys where broken [they wherent] and the fiat wasnt available unless we gave him a backhander , he just refused to give us a small car when he had 3 . this guy was a total liar and absolutely untrustworthy . he said we could have a small car if we paid more than booking . i just wanted the deal we booked and a small car . i explained we had hired from tcr before 2 times and we are repeat customers who be looked after . made no difference to his scam . left without a car when i had a confirmed 12 day booking worth hundreds of $$$ . all quite bizzarre as nobody else was renting today it was 6.30 pm and dark and the end of the day . tomorrow i bet they will have all the cars outside still , unrented . do not trust these guys at all with their scams . id rather walk than be scammed . he was trying to play us , but he ended up losing big time . i took his pic anmd told him id make him famous online which didnt go down well . hey FU buddy if you read this !

left at the end which i think was 2am blitzed , got lucky with cabs and hitching a few times today – karma for all the hitchers weve helped over the past few days !

heres some videos of us driving and visiting the biosphere which i took yesterday . you can see you can have deserted beaches , and the biosphere road while bumpy is also very quiet , hardly any cars and no people or commercial outlets apart from the cesiak eco resort place really , totally pristine with just the odd hidden rich persons house . ***you might initially think theres seaweed on the beach , but its there for a reason its all natural and part of the eco system in the biosphere so it is left *** . its not man made rubbish tho you get the odd flip flop like anywhere lol :
