Bus from Cancun to Mérida

In order to save money, some of the registrants for the ISCHE retreat have indicated they will fly to Cancun and take a bus to Mérida. Although the bus from Cancun to Mérida is about four hours, there are more options for international flights directly to Cancun, and you may be able to book a flight from the U.S. and other countries at more convenient times with fewer/shorter connections. Additionally, this would be a great way to take advantage of the location of the retreat in the Yucatán Peninsula and spend a few days at the beach. If you are interested in extending your stay in Mérida/Yucatán, there are many affordable options for lodging, including Airbnb.

ADO bus has frequent trips between the Cancun airport and Mérida and costs 740 pesos (~$39 USD) each way. The premium buses are very nice. You can see recent reviews of ADO bus on this Trip Advisor page and read more about different bus types and how to purchase a ticket from this blog post. Once you arrived to the ADO bus stop, (the nearest ADO terminal to Hacienda Misné is Merida Fiesta Americana, Yuc.) please take a taxi that are in the same bus terminal to arrive Hacienda Misné. The approximately cost is 7.5 usd. (150.00 mexican pesos). If you have any additional questions regarding transportation options, please contact the ISCHE coordinator at chyland@berkeley.edu or the coordinators from the National Institute of Public Health at logistics.ische@insp.mx.
