I need to know how to get a bus in Merida that Goes to Uxmal. I will be traveling from Cancun, in July 09. I feel safe taking the bus from Cancun, however my girlfriend thinks that this trip is going to be complicated. I'm bilingual and this might be some help. The more that we talk about this trip the less safe we both feel.. Please replay with detail info on how to get around once we get off from the bus terminal in Merida..
I'm planning on driving from Palenque to Santa Elena, the map seems fairly straight forward in terms of taking route 186 to 261, its all the small unmarked roads that have me concerned. Same with all the small unmarked roads from Uxmal to route 180 D. My question is are these roads hard to navigate? Even though they are unmarked, according to the map there aren't very many roads so I figure it would be just a matter of turning on the road on my left or right if I'm following the map. If anyone has driven these roads from 261 to Uxmal, or the roads from Uxmal heading East to 180D, not via Merida, any suggestions or feedback would be appreciated. Thanks
Traveling from Cancun in our rental car to see Uxmal will make a too long day and Sayil, Labdna...wouldn't be possible in the same day. The plan is to find a hotel for an overnight stay before returning to the already paid for all inclusive hotel we have in Cancun. This mom will be traveling with two daughters. My youngest daughter will have just finished a four month regimen of chemotherapy and will be taking a break before surgery and radiation treatment begins. She will be immunologically suppressed from the chemo. We need a place to stay overnight that maintains a very safe kitchen. We have traveled the area before and ate in cantinas.....but this time is different. She CANNOT get sick.
How far is it from Cancun (Airport) to Uxmal? We are thinking about renting a car and staying in Valladolid for 3 days then driving to Uxmal from there and staying our last 3 nights then driving back to catch a flight out of Cancun on our last day. Not sure how far of a drive it is though? Would appreciate anyone's thoughts...Thanks!
How easy/difficult is it to go from Uxmal to Campeche after visiting ruin? Is it better to go back to Merida?
Thank you for your answers.
