We'll be staying for two nights in Izamal, then on to Merida, in January, and traveling by bus. I'm wondering whether it would make sense to plan on visiting Chichen Itza from Izamal, or leave it as a day trip from Merida? One option would be to go and return to Izamal, in which case I'd be happy taking combos or shared taxis or whatever. The other option would be to go to Chichen Itza early on the morning of our departure, with luggage, and then from Chichen Itza on to Merida.
Any suggestions/recommendations appreciated. Thanks.
