Traveling by bus in the Yucatán, Tabasco, and Chiapas?

Jump to last reply

I want to visit several cities, but I hesitate to drive alone in Mexico, as I am a 77 year-old woman. I drive alone in Europe, but I'm intimidated by the idea of driving in a strange (and to me mysterious) country.

I'd like to visit Valladolid, Mérida, Campeche, Villahermosa, Palenque, and San Cristóbal de las Casas. I want to see the colonial architecture, local culture, and Mayan ruins. I'm open to suggestions as to which ruins are most interesting, but I definitely want to see Chichen Itza.

In my guidebook, I have read a little about bus travel between some of these cities, and I'm wondering if doing most of my travel between cities is feasible and comfortable.

I have pretty much unlimited time, so I can certainly relax for a few days between each leg of the trip.

Can anyone help me with information, ideas, suggestions, etc., in regard to this matter?
