It is our first time travelling to Mexico! We're travelling to the Yucatan in December. We will be in the Merida/Progreso area for Christmas, and have a flight from Cancun on Dec 27 at 4pm.. We will have accomodation booked up to Dec 25, so we have one day -Dec 26-to plan and can't decide where to spend it- near Cancun or somewhere enroute from Merida. As we haven't travelled here before, we aren't sure of times/schedules etc.
I am thinking of a visit to Vallodolid, possibly with a quick trip to Ek Balam or may Chichen Itza. We are travelling with an eight year old, who may not be thrilled at spending a lot of time at a ruin, hence a short visit. We will be travelling by bus., and I can't seem to find bus schedules for Vallodolid.
IIs is feasible to:
a) travel from Progreso/Merida to Vallodolid and see a little of Ek Balam or Chichen Itza on that day.
b) leave Vallodolid the morning of December 27 and arrive in Cancun in time for a 4pm flight that day. ie by noon.
Any thoughts on the feasibility and logistics of this plan would be appreciated!
