I'll be arriving at Tuxtla Gutierrez airport next week. It's a week day and my flight is scheduled to arrive at 12:30pm. I've read that there are shuttle buses that go direct to San Cristóbal de Las Casas. Does anyone know how frequent they are and approximate price? Can I just arrive at the airport and then organize this?

Hey!
I'll begin backpacking Central and South America in a couple of months and I need help planning.
I land in Mexico City and I'll spend 3-4 days there before continuing with my trip.
I want to visit Oaxaca, San Cristobal, Palenque, Bacalar, Tulum, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Cancun and Isla Mujeres.

The thing is, I want to enter Guatemala from San Cristobal. In what order should I do the destinations I mentioned? Also, is a month enough for all of the places? or should I drop some?

Thanks!

Long story short 3 of us(mid 20s) have 3 days before we have to pick up the rest of our group from Cancun and help them get to Playa del Carmen where we will spend a week. We will have 2 full days possibly 3 if we decide not to spend a night in Cancun. We don't really want to sit around Cancun for the few days so we are looking for a different town to chill in for those days. I have looked at Tulum and Puerto Morelos a little bit but looking for any advice on what to do. We aren't trying to…

Hello!! I would LOVE some help and advice, I'm trying to plan my first backpacking trip through Southern Mexico/the Yucatan, mostly around the gringo trail (I'm sorry, I know this topic has been discussed but I'm struggling to wrap my head around all the info). I am also hoping to stay for longer, maybe a week or 2, in one city, potentially volunteering at a hostel. Overall I would be in the country 3-4 weeks.

My ideal itinerary would include Mexico City, Oaxaca, San Cristobal, Palenque... and…

Hi there,
I will be travelling for some two weeks across Baja California (mainly Sur, up to Guerrero Negro). Do I need to book accommodation in advance or will I get the chance to extemporise when I'm there and I will know my exact itinerary?
Thanks for your help
Anna
