How often does the bus travel to Pilar beach ? Going end of May. Have been before but on a catamaran. Do you get picked up directly from each resort ? Staying at SOL Cayo Coco

The buses are more or less hourly going to Pilar only in the morning and hourly returning in the afternoon - they tell you the timetable on the day.

Good news is first departure is from the Melia at 8.o'clock and second pick up is at the Sol next door, so you'll get to choose your seat!

Cheers💝

It really depends on what is important to you. If you like to get out in the water for a swim and don't mind having little to no beach at high tide the MCC will be your best bet. If you like a beach that is flat and busier with lots to see including 3 piers and lots of kite surfers the MCG is your best option. We have been to both resorts. We spend all day from 9 am to 5 pm on the beach. Loved being able to get out and splash around the waves at MCC but did'nt like the fact that the beach was really non-existant at high tide. Love the scenery at the MCG beach. Both are great for walking as well. Price being equal we would pick MCC every time.

Wider,even at high tide. No worries of waves coming up right through your sitting area. More privacy. The chairs seem to be more spread out..Even Pilar's chairs are tighter together than the Sol's.

good access to bars and food services.

where ever you stay on Guillermo, take a walk past the Sol, you'll see what I mean.
