I'm considering not hiring a car to get from Merida-chichen iza-riviera Maya but instead do it by bus.
The trip isn't until November so I just looked at ADOs website and for a sunday it appears their only bus from Merida to Chichen Iza is at 6.30am. does anyone know any other reliable first class busses that leave in the afternoon?
er are stayin at hotel Dolores Alba near chichen iza so would need to take a taxi there from the entrance of Tulum. then the plan was to visit some cenotes nearby for the afternoon and visit chichen in the morning for opening. their location is between the ruins and Balankanche caves,
1) can you visit sites easily with colletivos /taxis and not spend a fortune?
2) what would you recommend doing for the afternoon?
again ADO says that leaving on a monday there is a early morning bus (not suitable as we will be at the ruins) and a 16.30 bus. was hoping to leave around midday after seeing the ruins to get to the hotel in Tulum/Puerto Morelos/Akumal/playa del Carmen (haven't booked yet)- does anyone know of any other busses doing these routes?
hiring a car might be easier but will cost us around $300 for 4 days as dropping off at Cancun before leaving so trying to work out other options that won't be too much hassle.
thanks for your advice
