I have driven that route many times,and never had a problem, a few years ago. Make sure if you are driving that your tank us full. There are check points. Should be a three hour run, four hours max. Very pretty. If going to a specific hotel, have a photo or brochure with you for the check point. I have never taken the bus

It is a very safe, interesting drive to make during daylight hours. We did it last February (2015) and spent the night. The town did not impress me much, but we stayed at the Grand Isla resort which was fabulous. Wander the town a bit and find a good place to eat on the water. We had good food and drinks, but all in all not much to do.

Are there restrooms on the first class busses? Do they make any (restroom) stops?
