http://www.omnibusmexicanos.com.mx/english depending where you're located you may need to use Greyhound to get to an Omnibus stop, actually Toranado out of Dallas operates on the US side of the border.

Take Omnibus to Mexico DF, ADO to the Guatemala border at Tapachula then Tica bus onto Guatemala City.

You have several first class bus lines with comfortable service from GC to Tapachula, Chiapas: Tica Bus, Linea Dorada, Transportes Galgos and Maya de Oro. Then in Tapachula you should be a ble to find transportation to anywhere in Mexico.

The area around the Linea Dorad bus terminal is not a safe area specially after dark. But a few blocks within walking distance, you can find several budget hotels including Hotel Sevilla, the place where I normally stay for about $23 w/private bath and cable TV. In the same area near 6th avenida where you can find internet cafes and fast food restaurants you can try Hotel Spring with good reviews also. You should be able to just walk in and get a clean room. Don't try to make a reservation through a booking site as they sell these two hotels for a whole lot more.

I plan on making the same trip. As you cross into Mexico the ADO bus is an OCC bus. The first bus stop is in Tapacula, Mexico. Your next stop/change would probably be San Cristobal de la casas. There you will be able to get on a real bus. Its quite a long ride in my opinion over 7hrs for such a short distance. You can purchase said ticket at


It took a number of searches to get that. Not sure why there isn't a map of the buses in Southern Mexico, Everyone including the ticket sellers just name places. I like to quickly see it on a map.

Hope that helps since this thread is a year old; doubtful you will here from the first guy because if he can drive me from A to B is 5 hrs and the bus is going to take me like 14hrs. All I can say is SOLD when can get that ride.

Regards, Alan

A word of advice about Maya de Oro buses - don't expect too much. Our 9 hour night trip from Flores to Guatemala City used their best service (VIP, lower deck, 2+1 seats) so as to get at least some sleep. Billed as luxury with: A/C (didn't work and so stiflingly hot), water and snacks (none available), blankets (none and went from hot to cold) and toilet (yes - but no water for flush or sink, no light to see by AND an open door!). Also no curtains on windows and noisy suspension. May de Oro should be ashamed of such transport.
