      Hello! Is there a preferred day to visit Teotihuacan? Our family will be visiting Mexico City during Holy Week from 8-17 April. We are interested in arranging a sky balloon tour above Teotihuacán and furthermore a tour to the pyramids.

      Cancun Airport to Cozumel transportation?

      Isla Cozumel Feb 8, 2017 at 11:09 PM

      Hi.
      Got a free flight to Cancun, booked it and realized that I really want to be in Cozumel! Now I have a hotel booked in Cozumel (Iberostar) and need to figure out how to get there and back.
      I see a flight with r.t. for only $150, but the times are real bad and I hope to get something that fits my flights in/out of Cancun. Cheaper would be nice if possible.

      Any busses that do the whole thing? What are the ferry routes? I guess I can just taxi to the ferry ports.

      Thanks. And I hope this hits someone before the site closes. Very sad about that too! Anyone know why VT is closing?

      Richard.

      Time to spend at Mayan sights?

      by schmechi Online Now Jul 7, 2015 at 12:26 PM

      I'm starting to plan my Mexico-trip and its difficult for me to estimate the time, which is needed for the mayan sights, particularly Chitzen Itza, Uxmal, Palenque and Tulum... How many hours an average visit will take?

      I know it is a tricky question, because every visitor has its own pace, but usually I tend to make sights quicker than the average backpacker... For instance for me two (full) days were sufficient at Angkor Wat or Petra (just to give you a comparison).

    • day trip from Cancun

      by travelling_princess8 Online Now Oct 8, 2014 at 10:42 AM

      We are staying in Cancun, and would like to visit CI. How long could one spend there (obiviously it will depend on what kind of traveller you are, but what have people found is a reasonable amount of time there?)

      We are wondering if we would be able to fit in a visit to Ria Lagartos Biosphere Reserve, Celestun Wildlife Refuge, Ek Balam, and Cenote Dzitnup, in the same day as going to CI from Cancun, or is this too ambitious? Is this part of the trip a whole day trip, in and of itself?

      We're staying in Cancun and don't have plans to spend overnight in the CI area.

      Thanks in advance!

    • Carnival Cruise excursion

      I'd like to go to Chichen Itza . Is it cheaper to get off the ship and book a tour? Or do I run the risk of it being sold out?

    • Any Public Buses going from Playa De Carma to Chichen-Itza.

      by frythedevil Online Now Nov 5, 2006 at 10:16 PM

      Hi all, I'm not a big fan of hotel tours and after reading a lot of reviews I am hesistant to rent a car.

      My question is I would like to see the Chichen-Itza ruins on a Sunday, and I would like to take a public bus or private bus from Playa De carmen. Does anyone know if the buses run on sunday and how much it would cost? First or 2nd class is okay and I would like to get there around 9 am when the ruins open.

      P.S. I tried to look at the bus schedule located in the Yutacan.com vacation site but it wasn't working.

      Thanks in advance.
