Bus tours of Merida/Campeche/Uxmal/Progreso/Chichen Itza

by BANSI

Is there a English speaking BUS TOUR of Merida and surrounding tourist places?
Also from Merida I want to go on BUS TOUR to Campeche, Uxmal, Progreso, Chichen Itza etc...
Is there a bus tour I can take from my hotel in Merida to all these places and then back to my hotel @ night? (PS: I don't know what hotel I am staying yet).
I have 1.5 (a day and half) to explore these places and then another 1.5 (day and half) to go explore Playa, Tulum and Chetumal. What is a inexpensive BUS Tour I can take?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry to say but Merida is Far from Playa del Carmen. AND NO in 1.5 days there is no way you can see PDC, Tulum and Chetumal. Chetumal alone is MANY mile away. I would venture to say that even with a rental car your time aloted is MUCH to short.

If you rent a car and drive, you may be able to visit Uxmal, Chichen, Progreso and maybe even Dzibilchultan in 1.5 days. But Campeche is a long way away. We took the ADO bus to Campeche, but can't remember how many hours we were on the bus - at least 4 hrs each way I think. By the way if you go to Campeche, the Edzna ruin is an hour away. Worth visiting (but each ruin visit will easily take you 2 or 3 hours).

Chetamul from Merida was 6 to 8 hours (one-way they have lousy roads). Cancun is 4 hours, and perhaps another 1 1/2 hours to drive from Cancun down to Tulum, but don't you want to stop and see anything? These times are driving only.

Agree with the other 2 posters, those places are far apart and I don't see any way you could cover ALL of those places in only 1.5 day, neither that a single bus tour would take you to each and ALL of them in such a short time span... Campeche alone is quite far away so you'd probably have to decide to ONLY go there from Merida during that day and a half (or probably squeeze in Chichen Itza, but nothing else) and then you'd be better off dedicating the other 1.5 day to Playa and Tulum, NOTHING else since Chetumal is still far away as Julio said. Good luck.

Travel Tips for Mérida

Cultural Life

by AnnaLupilla

Mérida celebrates an intense cultural life 365 days of the year, and the thousands of visitors become spectators in this ongoing fact of daily life.
The city, captivating and enchanting, is committed to constantly improving that image to the world. As such, every night the historical downtown district hosts an unforgettable cultural evening such as the traditional Yucatecan "jarana" (dance) presented in front of the City Hall every Monday evening; on Sunday when music filling the air with the salsa and cumbia rhythems of two orchestras. There are also theater presentations, folk dances and movies in cultural centers for the scenic arts such as the Mérida Theater located just a few steps away from the Main Square.

THE MAKING, SELLING & USE OF HAMMOCKS

by Sandi-2004

Merida & the Yucatan makes & sells hammocks like the one that was on the porch at our Mayaland Resort guesthouse. We had fun getting into it - a little tricky when you haven't been in one for a long time. Once in, it is very comfortable. From Chichen Itza to Merida we took the back roads through several small villages and saw the tiny houses that many families live in. Several people during our visit explained that the people in these villages (and many others) sleep in hammocks rather than beds. The hammock in the photo opens fully to wrap around the body. The website link shows them in use.

Beautiful Tropical Landscaping at Mayaland

by Sandi-2004

This is one of the many beautiful views at Mayaland - looking out from the main dining room to the pond and a statue of a woman in the white hipil dress, the traditional dress of the Yucatan women. All of the women working at Mayaland wear them.

Uxmal

by nepalgoods

When in Merida, then you can visit some of the most beautiful and impressive Mayan Ruins such as Uxmal

Uxmal was the greatest metropolitan and religious center in the Puuc hills in the late classical period. It thrived between the 7th and 10th century A.D. and its numerous architectural styles reflect a number of building phases.

Franciscan Convent in Izamal

by nepalgoods

Called the City of Hills and located right in the middle of the Yucatan Peninsula, Izamal may be the oldest city in the Yucatan. Izamal was conquered by the Spaniards, and the monks in their eagerness to convert the Indians to Catholicism gave the city its religious distinction. To this day, Izamal's people are very devoted to the Immaculate Virgin.
