Getting there & away

Oriente has ticket offices near the east and west sides of Pisté, and 2nd-class buses passing through town stop almost anywhere along the way. Many 1st-class buses only hit the ruins and the west side of town, close to the toll highway.

When they’re running on schedule, Oriente’s 2nd-class buses pass through Pisté bound for Mérida (M$52, 2½ hours) hourly between 8:15am and 4:15pm. Hourly Oriente buses to Valladolid (M$36, 50 minutes) and Cancún (M$80, 4½ hours) pass between 7am and 5:30pm. There is a service to Cobá (M$52, 1½ hours) as well.

First-class buses serve Mérida (M$80, 1¾ hours) at 2:25pm and 5pm, Cancún (M$140, 2½ hours) at 4:30pm, Tulum (M$101, 2½ hours) at 8am and 4:30pm, and Playa del Carmen (M$180, four hours).
