    .You may want to consider renting a car for a few days or even for the whold time as I did. Having a car gives you great freedom, you can go where and when you want. You can spend a few nights a different locations around the Yucatan. You also have the freedom of changing your plans as you travel as long as you are back in time for your flight back...

  • Get a GPS map from EBAY

    .If you are planning on renting a car and own a Garmin GPS with card slot, you can a GPS map for Mexico for about ½ price on E-Bay. The 2008 map worked very well during my trip to the Yucatan. The Points of Interest database is not as good as the one for the US and some of the one way roads in Valladolid were not marked as one way roads. However in...

  • Renting a car or taking a bus to Holbox

    Not that Chiquila isn't safe, but why pay for a car you're not using and will worry about? I'd take the bus from Cancun, enjoy Holbox, return to Cancun, and then start your road trip.Yucatan Today has some excellent travel itineraries you might enjoy:The Puuc Route http://yucatantoday.com/en/topics/puuc-routeand The Convent Route...

  • Can I visit Edzna in one day?

    Someone asked me a question about visiting Edzna in one day from Merida, and I had to write down the answer. This is what your day would be like: 0.5 hr - get from your hotel to the ADO depot 2.5 hr - Merida to Campeche on ADO bus 0.5 hr - taxi to downtown Campeche (Campeche ADO depot is a long way from downtown) 0.5 hr - walk to the Mercado where...

  • Yucatan car rental

    I usually do not recommend car rental by tourists to Mexico (see Mexico transportation prior tip), but I have made exceptions for places in the Yucatan where the roads and traffic are reasonable and having a car can allow you to see so much more. This is especially true for visiting Uxmal from Merida. In the same area there are lots of smaller...

  • Driving

    We encoutnered no problems driving about but the rules we were given by both guide book & local Mexicans :1) Always full up "lleno" (full tank) with petrol EVERY time you see a petrol station - sometimes you can drive for miles and miles and not see another car, let alone petrol station.2) Try to avoid driving at night when it is dark. (a) Some...

  • Toll Roads

    Toll roads (autopistas) are referred to as cuota roads (you have to pay on that). If you're in a hurry, getting from Mérida to Cancún, you should take the toll road. It's worth its prize. The second road, the libre, will get you there for free, and it is a lot more scenic as it gets you through a lot of Mayan villages. But it takes you a lot longer...

  • Gas & Gas Stations

    If you are going on an excursion from Progreso along the coast, fill up before leaving the town. The Chicxulub gas station is closed. If you go into the interior of the state, fill up when you see a station and try to not have less than half a tank. It is important to check that the gas station attendants puts the pump back to zero before he starts...

  • Driving In Mexico (Dare I Say?)

    YYYAAAHHHHH!!!!! You think people here are bad, HOLY COW!!! Man, I felt like I was in an extreme sports show driving in Progreso and Merida! Anyway, if you do drive in this area, be sure you get full coverage with Mexican insurance. When you rent a car, rent from Executive Auto rental, they are reputable, and you can rent a car for a day and...
