Hunting for tourists in Merida or "Hello, Money!" Part 2

In order to get from Campeche to Merida, you can use the second class of AST bus. They depart from the 1st class ADO terminal (Terminal ADO de Primera Clase). We chose just such a bus departed at 8:10. For tickets gave 145 pesos, on the way 3:00. Discount coupons on the second class are not accepted only if you are driving ADO or OCC buses.

We need to ask about buses of second class at the checkout, because there is no information about the information about them, not all flights may be displayed on the scoreboard.

To move Campmec Merida, you can also use the ADO bus (first class). The ticket is worth 200 pesos, on the way 2:30.

Do not forget about coupons for a discount of 10% For the next trip, if you use ADO and OCC buses. Coupons are printed right on the landing pass, so do not throw them away after the trip.

At the end of the article about Campeche the map shows the location of the bus station with which buses go to Merida. The bus on which we drove and buses ADO arrive at the central bus station Merida (Central del Autobuses or Terminal De Autobuses Merida – First Class Bus Station).

Bus schedule of first class and prices for them can be found here.

How to get from Merida to other places, you can read on this site.

And finally, a reminder to capture warm things into the bus, especially if the night crossing is foreseen. Air conditioning is increhensive, so it is very cold (+ 16-18 degrees, plus ice air). Local, which are informed, go with blankets.

Where we lived in Merida (Airbnb)

In Merida, we rented a room that was found and removed using AirBNB. The place is called Casa Tolok Twin Bedroom.

Only 200 Peso On a day we got a cozy room with everything you need: work desk, excellent Internet, huge bed, a large wardrobe, two fans. The bathroom is common, however, she was very close to our room, which was very convenient. In addition to the room that we took off, only one is surrendered, that is, there are no guests.

You can freely use the shared kitchen and refrigerator. Free tea, coffee around the clock in any quantities. There is a dining room and living room in which no one also prohibits.

Rooms hand over two guys – Manuel and Vilmantas. Everyone will tell about the city, help and supply a card. They live in the same house.

The location of the house is relatively proximity to the center is not the most profitable, since it is from him 2.5 km. But close enough from the central bus station. A ten minute walk there is a Chedraui supermarket. Who does not know, this is a huge shop where you can buy all-all-all (food, cosmetics and other little things). To the center on foot to go minutes twenty-twenty-five, if you wish, you can ride on the city bus or take advantage of a taxi.

Address: Calle 82, Merida, Yucatan, Mexico

Interesting story.Yes.Problem.And maybe not talk. In Spanish do not understand . In English too. And retarded

The fact of the matter is that everyone who speaks on the street is completely different on some obsessive sellers. It often happens that the same people are just interested in who, from where, what are you doing and t.D., Just out of curiosity. Marketers in Merida Well done, definitely!

Here’s jokes! It is a pity that the Mayan festival you did not see! haha! 🙂

I sympathize that you have to go there again. You are flying away from there?

Sheboldasik thirty.06.2014

Yes, fly away from there, but we are no longer on the market))

And everything so good began, ha ha!

We lived in Mexico in Playa del Carmen and hired a car with a driver specifically for a trip to Ushmal. In Ushmale, it’s great, just I want to advise those who decided to wander around the forest paths carefully to look at the feet, the husband almost broke the leg, having fallen into some kind of overgrown with the pit (can the remains of some hut). In Merida, the wife lived with children (he divorced), asked for permission to call, invited to visit.

Sheboldasik 23.01.2015

Elena, thanks for the warning, I am sure someone will surely help avoid surprises. In the forest part of the Ushmal really can adventrate anything.

With the driver you are lucky))

I did not happen in Merid to face anything like that. True and was there for long, less than a day. Hats saw $ 20, not bought, t.To. They do not wear them. Probably vain. Sometimes in the heat saves and look better baseball caps.

Liked pictures in the City Hall Merida. By the way, there collided with a group of Russian tourists. 🙂

Sheboldasik thirty.12.2015

So it is in Merida so "Lucky" ))

For the year of Russians at all practically did not meet, except that one group in Chichen Ice and in Oaxaca met one of the readers of our blog, which were surprised and very happy))

I advise you to buy a hat – the thing you need and useful!

Boris eleven.01.2016

Imagine our surprise when in the early morning right from the plane we were on Teotihuakan, the first and only we met there was a couple of Russian tourists. 🙂

Sheboldasik eleven.01.2016

Yes, unexpectedly)) Probably at that moment you thought that the Russians in Mexico would be apparently invisible))

Alyona 09.06.2017
