Interesting places Yucatana or what to do in Valladolid part 2

In order to get from Merida to Valladolid, you can use The second class bus Oriente. They depart from the central bus station Merida (Central del Autobuses or Terminal De Autobuses Merida – First Class Bus Station). As far as I understood, buses and first class depart from here, and the second, perhaps just from different platforms. We have written in the ticket that we go with Terminal Unica.

We chose just such a bus departing at 8:00. For tickets gave 103 pesos, on the way 3:30. Discount coupons on the second class are not accepted only if you are driving ADO or OCC buses.

About buses of second class I need to ask at the box office, since there is no information about the information about them, not all flights can be displayed on the scoreboard (or not to display at all).

To move Merida Valladolid, you can also use First Class Bus ADO (first class). The ticket costs 176 peso, on the way 2:15. As you can see, these buses overcome the same way much faster.

At the end of the article about Merida the map shows the location of the bus station with which buses go to Valladolid departs. The bus on which we rode and buses ADO arrive at Valladolid to ADO TERMINAL AUTOBUSES – First class bus station (see the map below).

How to get to Valladolid from Cancun

We did not do this path. I know for sure that from Cancun to Valladolid can be reached by bus ADO (first class) for 176 pesos and two hours or on the ORIENTE bus (second class) for 102 pesos and 3 hours 15 minutes.

Discounts! 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.

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

Attention! 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.

On the bus Oriente Merida Valladolid was really cold. This is a bus of the second class, so the holes from which the cold air blows is sometimes broken, and sometimes torn off at all. Although, even if everything is planted, the air conditioners still do not go anywhere. Coldly!

Where we lived in Valladolid

Accommodation in Valladolid Ikali in place. Arriving to the city, things left on the bus station in the storage chamber (Guarda Equipaje). For three backpacks (two large and din small) paid 20 pesos.

Strangely, but hotels in Valladolid, in the hour of searching, found not so much, perhaps they were not looking for. Those budget options that found were mostly not very cute or comfortable. If you need a number for a day or two – Choose something closer to the bus station, a couple-triple offers.

In search spent about an hour, as a result, stopped in Hostel Del Fraile, On Central Street Simony. The first room we showed did not like: a very close, without a bathroom, with a basement smell. It costs 290 pesos per day.

The second showed the room on the second floor of a certain compact structure. She attracted us much more, so they stopped on her.

It was originally announced the price of 330 pesos per day. Asked if a discount is possible if we stop for a week, they agreed on 310 pesos.

What we got: A fairly spacious bright room with a large double bed and one-bedroom (relevant, if you travel with children or threesome, we put things on it). Own bathroom with hot water, TV, fan, poorly running Internet and spacious wardrobe. The Internet works well below, in the living room, where there is a large dining table, but there are constantly toss other guests.

In general, this wanted very crowd, constantly someone walks, chatting, drinking beer, smokes, reads in a common room and yard (mostly youth from a wide variety of cities and weights).

Great advantage – There is a shared kitchen with a fridge that can be actively used. Breakfast included in the price of the room: Flakes with milk, tea-coffee, toasts-buns, oil-jam.

Oh, yes, there is still a small swimming pool and next to him a mini-area of ​​recreation with three hammocks. For a week, we never took advantage of the pool, but they dangled in the hammocks with pleasure (though, the mosquitoes were very docked).

As Alternative option Search for housing in Mexican cities I recommend paying attention to the site airbnb. This is a resource on which the owners offer to rent their housing (rooms, apartments, houses). We have already found excellent accommodation there in terms of price and quality ratio and always remained satisfied. Below the most appropriate sections of the site:

Going on the last link, you will be taken to the section where all the accommodations offered at Airbnb will be collected in Mexico. There you can enter the title of the city in the upper left corner, which is interested, and get a sample of housing based on it, plus there is an opportunity "Play" With other parameters to choose the options as suitable for personal requests (the picture is increasing):
