I am a female independent traveller. I plan to travel through Mexico in December and would be keen to here people’s tips and experiences, as I have never been to Mexico before. Unfortunately I am time poor. I arrive in LA on the 6th of December at have to be in Merida by the 15th of December where I will spend two weeks volunteering. I have a rough itinerary but am happy to here some constructive feedback about how realistic it is. I am thinking of flying to Mexico City on the 7th or 8th and spending a night or two there. Then getting a bus to Oaxaca. I will spend a night or two there before getting an overnight bus to San Cristóbal De Las Casas. I will have the next 4 days to get to Merida. Probably via Palenque
So does this sound realistic? Does anyone have any other suggestions?
