Bus from Flores to Chetumal

Hi everybody,

Can anyone who has made this route write answers to my questions?

How much do the Flores bus go and how much does it come to Chetumal? Can you get ADO bus from Chetumal at 18.30 to Tulum?

1. If I travel by San Juan Travel Service / departure / arrival /

2. When traveling by Marlinespadas / departure / arrival /

3. Is there any other option? /departure Arrival/

Thank you for the information

Pavel

You should have enough time.

The bus from Flores should arrive in BC between 9 and 10am. It arrives at the water taxi terminal.

The ADO bus leaves from the bus terminal (still called the Novelo's terminal) about 1 km from the water taxi terminal. You can walk to the bus terminal (it's through the downtown area), but with luggage, it would be better to get a taxi for BZ$5 or $6.

@MisterB266 - If you can’t pre-purchase an ADO ticket between Belize City and Mexico, how do you provide proof of an onward journey when crossing the border from Guatemala? Will hotel bookings and flights out of Mexico suffice?

I doubt that you will be asked for an onward ticket, but the ticket out of Mexico should be good enough.

If you really want an onward ticket, try Marlin Espadas -- that's the bus which runs from Flores to Chetumal, so while in Flores, maybe you could buy a ticket from BC to Chetumal.

Or if you're going to the cayes, maybe you buy a ticket on-line for the water taxi from CC or AC to Chetumal.

Thanks for your advice. We are going straight from Flores to Tulum. The quickest way seems to be Fuente del Norte to BC and then ADO to Tulum, so going to give that a try. The reviews of Marlin Espadas do not inspire confidence so going to give that a miss.

Have there been a lot of negative comments about Espadas? I've read only one.

There's also the San Juan bus that runs from Flores to Chetumal.

Hemos viajado por Marlin Espadas sin inconvenientes. Tarda unas 9 o 10 hs de Chetumal a Flores, parando en Belice por 40 minutos y cambiando de bus. En Mexico se paga 30 dólares para salir, en Belice no nos cobraron nada por estar de tránsito. No hace falta cambiar dinero en la ruta, en Flores hay casas de cambio
