Bus from Chiquila to Tizimin to Ek' Balam and back

I'll be staying in Isla Holbox for 12 days and would like to do a day trip to the Ek Balam ruins. Is it possible to take a bus from Chiquila to Tiziman and then to Ek Balam and back all in one day?

Taking a taxi is a possibility too from Tizimin. Does the bus from Tizimin to Valladolid stop at Ek Balam? I am travelling on a shoestring.

Thanks

No bus service I know of to Ek Balam. Likely will need a taxi from Tizimin.

You

can get a shared van from Tizimin to to Ek Balam, but it drops you off on the access road, so you will have a walk in to the ruins.

On our way back, we hitched a ride with another traveler.

Yes you can do it by bus but it will take several days including walking the ruins.You must bus from Chaquila to Valladolid then north to Ek Balam. For a day trip book one of the tours when you get to the isla, or you can take a taxi, the driver will wait for you while you walk the ruins. One day trip is a long day. If you want to really enjoy the ruins and the culture take more time.
