I've done a couple of searches and frankly my spanish just isn't up to the task of wading through the sites I found(though I'm working hard to remedy the lack of hable espanol). Links to anything in english would be great! Thanks!
Start in Harlingen , take that bus to the bus terminal in Matamoros. 11 dollars.
then you can go quickly or not by taking a bus to veracruz then chetumal. via hermosa is also along the way and even better, palenque. If you take only the main route matamoros-veracruz-chetumal , that spells out about 24 bus hours with ac and video http://www.ado.com.mx/
Looks like 11 plus 67 plus 60= 138.00 dollars one way
