Travel from Chetumal to Tikal (Flores or Santa Elena)


I am trying to find out what Bus would be the best to take from Chetumal to Flores or Santa Elena. I have hear people recommend San Juan, Linea Dorada, and Fuente del Norte. Does anyone have any experience with this trip on any of these, and can recommend one over the other? Also, I could not find the website for San Juan, and for the other two, I could not find this route on listed on their site.

If you can recommend a better way (short of flying) to get from Cancun to Tikal please let me know! The plan right now is to bus from Cancun to Playa del Carmen to Chetumal, through Belize, and arrive in Flores.

Whatever you do, don't take San Juan! They are notoriously bad.
