My partner and I are visiting Mexico in may/June. Our schedule is a little tight and I was looking for advice on bus travel and timings for chichen Itza.
We'll travel by bus late afternoon from Tulum to Chichen Itza and stay overnight somewhere (maybe hacienda) in order to be able to visit the ruins of chichen itza early the next day and miss the crowds.
Do you think it's worthwhile to take our bags and store them that day at the ruins so that we can hop on a bus that evening on to Merida? We do have time to stay another night at the ruins if that is preferable but I've heard that the earliest bus the next day is not until2pm. Is there enough to do locally to warrant an extra night in chichen Itza or should we push on to Merida on the same day?
Any advice would be greatly received please.
