What is the most comfortable way to get to Tikal from Yuacatan peninsula (I suppose Campeche and/or Tulum will be the southernmost point I'd reach in Yucatan without this detour) Apart from the mentioned I'd be staying in Merida and Cancun the most time of my journey.... Is there any chance for a short trip to Tikal? How long would you estimate, that this trip takes?
btw: I suppose it is forbidden to cross the borders with hired cars, isn't it?
it would take you about 2 days from merida each way so a short trip is somewhat out of the question.
but there are flights direct from cancun to flores (tikal) so you could do a 1-2 day trip there easily if you fly. TACA is the airlines
