for those that have made the trip, could use some advise.
We are headed to SP this Sat.(2nd time), leaving SP on Tues. 13th on Maya at 7am to Corozal.
I've had some basic advise but if anyone can advise any errors in my plans, it would be greatly appreciated.
I plan to get a taxi at Corozal, hopefully right at airport?(fare?)
taxi to Mx boarder, walk across. Find another taxi, right there on other side? Taxi to Chetumal bus station(fare?) and buy ticket for $25Us per person to Puerto Morelos?
The unknowns are:
taxi at Corozal airport, will one be right at airport and rate?
Cross the border, will taxi be right there?
Bus station, from what I've found, I want ADO bus line? But can not gleen any time or routes from web site. Web site shows 00:00 and 5:00?
can anyone advise when 1st class or straight though bus leave Chetumal? Would like to arrive before dark in Peurto Morelos, we have to find a hotel when we get there, no reservation. (we have res. next night)
1st time in MX, and my knowledge of Spanish is limited to Pacifico, Model Negro, and a few favorite types of food.
We like adventures, any good place's to check out along the way?
If they tell you it won't work over satellite, they didn't try hard enough!

Taxis will be at Corozal airport....Henry Menzies' taxi service is very good...for $32.50US he'll get you from Corozal Airport all the way to the bus station in Chetumal including making sure you get through the border formalities with little or no fuss.

If you stop at the border and decide to walk across to get a Mexican taxi on the other side prepare for a long, hot and sweaty hike of about 1/2 mile. Much better to stick with your Belizean taxi!

The bus to Morelos is only about $17.00US from Chetumal, including a change at Playa. ADO buses run from Chetumal to Cancun almost hourly stopping at Tulum and Playa Del Carmen on the way...only a couple stop at Morelos. Get off at Playa Del Carmen and catch one of the many frequent buses from there that stop at Morelos.

From Corazol to Chetumal, and vice versa, George Morales will take you across the border - these drivers know all the border people and are a great help. His e-mail is getransfers@btl.net
His tel. number is 501-4222485, or was the last time I spoke to him last year

We made this trip a couple years ago. We were the only passengers on the flight from San Pedro to Corazol. I felt we were lucky that there was a taxi at the airport. If I ever do it again, I'll have a cab arranged. Our driver was Alvin Leslie, and he was great. Watched our bags when we were going through immigration, so we didn't have to drag them around. Even went into the bus station at Chetumal and showed us which line to get into to buy a ticket. Phone number I have is 501-422-2377. We were only going as far as Tulum, the bus ride was easy, even had a Jack Nicholson movie on...

The other option is just to flag down a bus going north (the Coro airstrip is near the highway). Any Novelos/Northern Transport bus, except an express, will stop for you. The bus will take you across the border, stopping for Belize/Mexican immigration/customs to the main bus station where you can catch the ADO bus. From the airstrip to Chetumal is probably about US$2.
