Several reasons. Night is when most Mexicans prefer to make long bus trips. The times in Chetumal are a bit different because all buses are "paso" buses. Meaning they all originate in other cities. Most are OCC buses, which is another of ADOs first class bus lines. One is an ADO GL which is a bit more upscale version of a first class bus.
ADO owned buses are your only choice.
If we get into Palenque at 5am, what is our best option? Hang out at the bus station for a while or go to a hotel that accepts guests that early?
(We will be with our 5-year-old daughter, so we can't walk the streets!)
Is there a hotel in Palenque that would accept us that early in the day?
I know of no second class schedules on line. From what I see, Palenque is longer than most second class runs.
As far as hotels that would accept you arriving at 5AM, I dont know any specifics.
May be difficult to know without contacting several directly.
