My family of 6 -- 2 adults & 4 kids -- are arriving in Cancun next week. We are then heading to Chicxulub/Progreso by bus. Can anyone tell me about the bus system? Specifically, is it crucial that we reserve bus tickets in advance? If yes, is it realistic to reserve in the early evening (when we land) for a bus the next morning? Also, I know it's a 4-hour trip straight through to Merida/Progreso. Is there any way we can make stops along the way for short periods (to be "touristy"!). Or will we have to stay on the same bus all the way from Cancun to our final destination?
Also, I'm trying to get a handle on distances ... we land in Cancun airport and stay one night at the Radisson Hotel. I think the address is Av.Carlos Nader Lotes. Is that far from the airport and/or bus station?
