Public Bus There
are public buses or shuttles that connect all major areas of the Maya
World. Between some points there are comfortable first class
buses and in other areas there are only 2nd or 3rd class options.
This is an inexpensive option but very time consuming as the
buses usually make several stops along the way. Safety of
travel by bus varies by region. Bus tickets are almost
impossible to purchase in advance from the U.S. and generally need to
be purchased once you arrive. Usually this is not a problem
as most buses don't sell out in advance.
Rental Cars Depending
on the region, this can work for local travel but is not necessarily
good for going long distances. If you want to pick up a car
in one region and drop it off in another it can be very expensive. For
example, if you pick up a rental car
in Cancun and drive it to Palenque the one-way drop off charge will be
a minimum of $500. In addition, most rental companies will
not allow you to rent a car in one country and drive it to another.
example, you can't pick up a car in Cancun
and drive it across the border to Belize. Important note
about rental cars: Unlike renting a car in the U.S. no major
credit card companies cover insurance on car rentals in Mexico and most
of Latin America.
You must purchase CDW or LDW coverage (cost of that is in the
"fine print" of the rental agreement). If you decline this
coverage and you get in an accident you could be taken to jail until
all parties resolve the situation. Or, if the car is stolen
you may be responsible for paying the full value of the car.
