Bus service to San Cristobal and beyond from Oaxaca

We would like to travel from Oaxaca City to San Cristobal de las Casas, and from there on to Merida. Has anyone done this? We would appreciate your insights.

409,

It's a nice route but very hard if you are not used to sleep in a bus. From Oaxaca to San Cristobal the bus (ADO GL) departs at 8:00pm and takes 11 hrs. From San Cristobal to Merida the bus (there's no first class service) departs at 6:20pm and takes 12 and a half hrs.

Thanks so much for the info. Is it possible to break up the trip from Oaxaca to San Cristobal and stay along the route? Can this be done on a first class bus? I mean breaking up the trip on a first class bus. Thanks again!

409,

You can go from Oaxaca to Tuxtla Guitierrez which is one ore or so before San Cristobal. From TG you can visit different places like El Sumidero, Chiapa de Corzo, etc. Also from TG there are two first class buses scheduled to Merida.

Also from TG you can go to Palenque (6 hrs) one of the most beautiful archaelogical sites, and from here to Merida (between 6.5 or 7hrs.)

Visit www.ticketbus.com.mx so you can have an idea of the costs and schedule.
