Bus travel - Merida/Campeche

by carlos88

Visiting Merida for eight days in September 2007. What is the time of travel for a bus to Campeche? Where is a schedule available? From where do the buses leave? Thank you. Any further information or advice would be appreciated.

I took an Executivo Bus from Merida to Campeche, at the ADO bus station in Merida (was in town.)
Buses leave frequently (every hour i think) and it took about 2 hours, maybe 3 at the most.
The bus station in Campeche is a bit away from centre-town. Take a cab into town. I was just passing through on my way home to Veracruz, but would have liked to visit Campeche better.

As Alza said, you can try ADO or ADO GL, which is the one she used. I did the exact same thing she did.

ADO GL has less trips per day, it takes 2.30 hrs., of travel and it costs $138.00 MX Pesos. The rest of the regular ADO take 2.15 hrs., so there is not really much difference, and the price for it is $116.00 MX Pesos.

You can find an itinerary online by using www.ticketbus.com.mx, it's also available in english by trying: https://www.ticketbus.com.mx/ticketbus/eng/index.jsp

The "corridas", as they are called, are the departures schedules of each bus. You can try your search under: Campeche to Merida Fiesta Americana - they have less corridas, they stop one block away from Paseo Montejo, right in the hotel zone, or to Merida CAME, where they are very regular corridas and they drop you a few blocks south of Gran Plaza in Centro.

One more thing Carlos, I often suggest to travelers to carry a sweater or something warm for the trip, sometimes the drivers have the a/c very high, unless you can communicate with them and tell them to have it lower... but they will likely turn it on high later.

Have a happy trip!!

We did the same thing. As Lou said, the darn ADO bus depot in Campeche is a ways from downtown. We expected it to be downtown, and as we don't speak Spanish, we had no idea how to ask someone where the bus downtown was, so we landed up taking a taxi (which cost 30 pesos).

Re: Bus travel - Merida/Campeche

Same as Redlats, I had no idea the bus station was outside Centro, unluckily I had to hire a taxi cab and I hate hiring taxis no matter where it is, specially when at the airport or at any station, they tend to be more expensive since they know you don't know what they know that you don't.

Tip: Try to figure it out as most as possible how far is the bus terminal from your destination. It might save you some money.

Travel Tips for Campeche

LATTER DAY PILGRIMS - EDZNA

by mtncorg

To reach the top of the Templo de los Cinco Pisos, you mount 65 steps which access the pyramid, providing a grand view over the complex and the local countryside beyond. Remember that many of the surrounding ‘bumps’ in the jungle represent further buildings that have yet to be uncovered from the jungle.

edzna,edificio de los cinco pisos

by cbeaujean

famous place for an ancestral tradition,bringing together thousands of mayas with the object to be in favour of the rain (!),imploring the god "chac".
here,main square and the " five stores building" 31m high,basis 60x58m,a monumental staircase joins the four first stores.
maybe four stores as priests habitations,the upper one the temple...

Climb Edzna's Five-Story Temple

by Redlats

One of my joys is to climb the Mayan pryamids and temples. The view from the top is usually excellant, and it is awe-inspiring imagining the work that went into their building.

Unlike Uxmal, Edzna has a rope is laid out in the middle of the main staircase. I took that as a sign that the climb is steeper than Uxmal (it is hard to remember relative steepness). I am not in the best of shape but I find climbing a lot easier than descending. I used the rope on the way down, but only as a safety device. When you are descending, you realize that you could fall 30 metres if you slip, so holding on to the rope made me feel quite a bit safer.

In this case, the view from the top is great! You can see hills in the distance, and even small hills nearby that most likely are other temples overrun by vegetation.

Edzna Ball Court

by Redlats

All native communities seemed to have ball courts, and Edzna was no exception, although this one is smaller than most -- between two large buildings. The plaque indicates that this would have been a "practice ball court".

It (the plaque) also said that the court was carefully aligned with a north-south orientation of the principal line of the court. I wonder if that is the case in all ball courts?

I also included a picture of part of that plaque as it has an image of one of the players. According to their archeiologist, ball players had padding like an (American) football player.

Carnival

by Redlats

Each year as Shrove Tuesday (or Pancake Tuesday) approaches, there is the madhouse that is Carnival parades. Each town in Mexico has a number of parades -- parades for kids, parades for folk costumes, parades for the beauty queens.

At the parades we viewed, normally participants throw out stuff to the crowds -- most often candy, but also T-shirts and other such stuff. Carnival parades truly are a madhouse. People line the parade route 5 people deep, and it can take hours to get away from the parade once its over due to all the people.

We watched one such parade in Campeche. The honourary parade marshalls were two local soap opera actors. They were so popular that they were constantly mobbed -- I think their names are Alexandra and Sebastian (means nothing to me). See the photos for views of some of the floats.
