Hi - I would like to know about day buses from San Cristobal to Palenque - I will be arriving in San Cristobal in the late afternoon (I have already seen it thoroughly) and would like to leave the next day for Palenque, but not too early, so I can rest from the trip (I am not so young!) - When I was in San Cristobal two years ago I remember having to reserve a bus, so the tight timing troubles me - Then, from Palenque, I would like to go to Catemaco in one day, in a hurry unfortunately because of an event there - Has anyone done this? Thank you for any advice - Jean
You can check out timetables on this website:
It seems that the buses from San Cristobal to Palenque leave at 3.45pm, and the trip takes 4:40 hours.
I do not know about the other trip. Probably you will have to go to Veracruz and there switch to a local bus - if it is the Catemaco near Veracruz...
try this website:
that is for ADO which has the buses in the South of Mexico. you should probably reserve the trip at a bus station somewhere else in mexico at least a few days ahead of time. you can do it from any bus station in the country.
Thank you for your replies - I have been struggling with thatA DO site for days - it is even bookmarked on my computer! - and now I realise that the ADO lines are very limited, and which is why I keep getting the "no corridas" answer. The suggestion of advance reservation is prudent but I wont be in Mexico to make the reservations - However I will settle for a less comfortable bus for a day journey of five hours - There must be other buses to Palenque that leave earlier in the day - so if anyone knows anything about that, I would appreciate it - The ADO bus is a late arrival and a long wait after checking out of the hotel - Veracruz is way north of Catemaco so it is not necessary to go there first - so if anyone has done that journey, I hope to hear from you! Best wishes, Jean
