Stations, the maps offered by Guia Roji, a book
of 42 maps will help you plan a long bus ride.

morning so that you have daylight to explore the

It is 800 miles to Mazatlan from Tucson which computes to a 16-hour trip. Therefore you will
want to leave Tucson around noon or early
afternoon so that you arrive in Mazatlan at 6-7 am
and have time to explore the beaches.
Mountain travel will be much slower than 50 mph.
A trip from Oaxaca City to the Pacific Coast
beaches of Puerto Escondido or Zipolite for
example will cover only 125 miles but take 7-8
hours. You can ask the ticket sellers at the station
the trip duration but they are not always informed.
If you do head inland to Durango from Mazatlan,
pick up some motion sickness medication. The
mountain road to Durango is as steep and
twisting as any you will ever see and bound to
make you queasy.
Bus travel is not about saving Money; the trip
might actually cost more when you consider the
expense for hotels, food, and sightseeing. Bus
travel in Mexico can be about comfort, adventure,
flexibility, and a boots on the ground tour through
the city, ruin site, or village.
On a bus trip you are free to detour, stop, speed
through, or lounge for a few days. The bus
provides comfort and lack of anxiety, flexibility
and a look at the culture.
