help with complicated itinerary

Can't Post |
Need to meet family in Merida for trip to Celestun, then Chiapas, Belize border area, up to San Miguel and then back to states (DC). Trying to figure what will be most efficient, economical way to arrange travel from states to Mexico and back. RT to Mex City fares are probably most reasonable. Could buy RT to Mex City and one-way from Mex City to Merida.
Or could figure in new Tampa to Merida ferry somehow. Or could look for cheap DC to Cancun fare. Has anyone arranged this kind of trip?

The most practical solution is RT to mexico City, one way flight to Merida, and then buses from there. You might find a carrier that would give you a reasonable price on an "open jaw" ininerary, where you fly into Merida, and out from Mexico City. If you could get a cheap roundtrip to Cancun, that would work also, just buy a one-way from Mexico city to Cancun, which you could buy in advance or just buy from a travel agent in Mexico.<p>Mexico is a large country, you will need to allow many hours for bus rides, such as 15 hours from Merida to Tuxtla Gutierrez Chiapas.<p>I suggest that you avoid night travel on that trip for security reasons. You will be going through states, such as Chiapas and Campeche, where bus robberies do happen from time to time. Besides, with day trips you can see the scenery.<p>Richard<p><p>: Need to meet family in Merida for trip to Celestun, then Chiapas, Belize border area, up to San Miguel and then back to states (DC).
