Here's the route you need to go by bus:

San Cristobal - Ocosingo - Palenque - Escarcega - then to Xpujil - Chetumal - Felipe Carillo Puerto - Tulum

If you go from Escarcega to Tulum via Campeche - Merida - Valladolid it will be around 5-6 hours longer by bus.

There is an an ADO-GL bus at 1545 that goes all the way. It takes about 16 hours. There are also a couple of others, but they are less comfortable.

Thank you so much. One more question (maybe two!). Does the bus stop at Xpujil so we could take the bus from SC to Xpujil, then overnight and see some of the nearby ruins, and then travel on to Tulum? Thank you!!!

I doubt if ADO buses stop there, and they run through the night anyway. You can check timetables on the Ado website.

e2ndpower.....Some ADO buses traveling between Escarcega and Chetumal do stop in Xpujil, but they are very few. You need to check the Boletotal website for planning your trip as needed: http://boletotal.mx/

Good luck!
