Panama to Cancun via Chicken Bus?


I'm travelling to Central America for the first time this Summer, the cheapest flights travel to and from Cancun - much, much cheaper than to Mexico City or Panama (around £600 cheaper!!)

So once I've finished my 2 month trip from Cancun to Panama I need to return to Cancun for my outbound flight, is it do-able via Chicken Bus or private bus? I know its a 27h drive. Or should I just take an outbound flight from Panama/San Jose and pay much more for piece of mind and possibly sanity!!!

Thank you!

Where do you get 27 hours ?

Google maps reckons 36 to 43 hours - and that always underestimates the real time.

Intercity travel in Panama is not by "Chicken Bus".
