Cancun to San Cristobal de la casas then on to guatemala

by wardski12

Hi,
I'm flying into cancun (because its cheapest) but ideally I want to get away as quickly as possible from anything remotely touristy, particularly in guatemala. Whats the best way to get into guatemala from mexico without going via belize. Is it true you can go from Cancun to San Cristobal de la casas then on to guatemala?

cheers!!!

Rather than fly into Cancun, fly into Villahermosa, and then take in Palenque. Then, take the "backdoor" border crossing by boat into Guatemala, taking a bus to Flores (near Tikal). From Flores, take a local van to Sayaxche, and stay one day for Mayan ruins there, and then take another local van over the mountains to Coban. You can visit the original home of Nobel Peace prize winning Mayan woman Rigaberta Menchu near Uspatan. I describe all this in my intro for Guatemala and pages for these towns and places. This is the best way to avoid the tourist trap of the Mexican Yucatan, Belize and so on. It's cheap and very exciting.

As you will land in Cancún take a bus to Mérida and the night bus from Mérida to Palenque (I think this took me 8 hours, start at midnight) and another bus to San Cristóbal de las Casas. From Palenque or San Cristóbal as in the last great suggestion.

Although you do not like touristy places those Mayan places in Yucatán are not crap or rip-off, they are fantastic and worth a visit on the way to Guatemala.

Museo de Medicina Maya

by darthmilmo

For those interested on local Mayan traditions, head to the "Museo de Medicina Maya." In there, you can learn about the Mayan culture and their traditional medical techniques. The museum is a few kilometers from downtown. I walked over there enjoying the sights en route (such as a delicious fruit market), but you may want to take a taxi to save time :).

San Cristobal de las Casas

by jumanuel

San Cristobal is a beatiful town.
Here we spent three night enjoying of the peaceful town.
In fact the town is small, so there is no need you take a taxi or so, you can walk very easily and enjoy of the town.

Just be careful, beacuse many people used to get near to you and ask you some moeny - I recomend you don't give much money or dont' carry much cash with you. When you arrive at town go to your hotel and leave your bags, there's been many roberies in town, so just take your precautions and eveything will be cool.
