Local buses from Jalpan to Xilitla

Can anyone give me the particulars on getting a local bus from Jalpan to Xilitla- how frequent they are and where exactly to get them?

We are in Queretaro now and plan to take Primera there Sunday. It will get us to Jalpan at noon and we'd like to get to Xilitla as early as possible. I know we can take Primera directly to Xilitila, but there's only one a day that gets there at 5:30 p.m. and we'd like to get there earlier. Taking a local bus from Jalpan seems to be our only hope.

Thanks for…

Seeking some Tulum Wisdom from the Thorn Tree Crowd

Hi fellow travelers!

My boyfriend and I are interested in planning a five day trip in January to Tulum (never been). It seems as of a few years ago Tulum was an affordable retreat. But recently the prices have escalated.

Rather than claw through the endless info on travel sites, I thought I'd see if anyone here has some recommendations. A few years ago it seemed possible to get a cabana on the beach for less than $150/night. Now it seems much more expensive.

So I just thought I'd check in…

Direct flights from Cancun

Hello,
We ended up getting a last minute flight to Cancun as a third choice (love it but were there last year) due to
circumstances that were out of my control, but we are able to go-Yeh! So where else can I get a direct flight to
from there? Looking for a destination that we can explore, if even for a few days. Are there direct flights to any
Caribe islands like Jamaica or cubah? Appreciate any help..we are leaving in a couple days :) Have a great time weekend!
