Getting to Holbox from Isla Mujeres

We will be leaving Isla Mujeres on Feb 17th headed to Holbox. Does anyone know the best way for us to go about the journey? Any help is greatly appreciated.

If you are taking a bus then head to the Cancun bus station and take a bus to Chiquila. Do a google search for Holbox and you will find the bus times.

Also look at this link but always verify bus times.

Now I know why that ticket bus site does not show Chiquila. It does not list the Mayab bus schedule.

This link shows reported times yet when I went the 215 PM bus may not have existed so don't plan on it.

The ticketbus site does not show Mayab or any line not owned by ADO since ticketbus is ADO owned. But they also do not show their own second class bus line, Oriente, which serves many points in the area.

Dont rely too much on any information from the weblinks--it changes frequently.

The bus leaves Cancun at 12:40 in the afternoon. The ferry will be waiting for the bus about 3.5 hours later. That's how it went for us last week.
