The bus to Chiquila (for Holbox) leaves from the ADO terminal in the center of Cancun. If you arrive in Cancun by bus, it is where you will arrive. You will likely be arriving by ADO first class which arrives on the right side of the terminal--as you face the terminal from the front. The second class buses depart on the left at the opposite end of the terminal. You also buy your tickets at the second class windows there for the Mayab, Orienete, Noreste buses, etc.

One hint, when the bus is announced, if you have luggage to go underneath the bus, have one person go ahead and board and get the seats while the other takes care of the luggage. The seats are not reserved so best to do that to assure seats you want. Also remember no bathroom on the bus so best not to consume a lot of liquids. The bus will normally make one stop long enough for the restroom but be sure to tell the driver you are getting off so he doesn´t leave you!
