Public Transportation to Ruta Puuc Ruins
Day 16 - Sunday, February 18, 2018. Up and out the door by 6:50 am to catch The Oriente Ruta Puuc bus from the TAME bus station by 8 am. Sadly, the Airbnb breakfast was canceled - but there always is tomorrow. We flagged down a bus with Centro (city center) on its windshield to get downtown and walked one-kilometer to the TAME bus station. We could have found a southbound bus to get to the station, but I haven't figured out how to catch southbound busses yet.
On our way to the TAME bus station, we noticed the Plaza Grande streets were already being blocked off and the vendors were setting up for "Merida en Domingo,"the Merida-on-Sunday weekly street celebration at Plaza Grande. It looks like the celebration is an all-day affair and may still be going full tilt when we return from the Ruta Puuc ruins. This was shaping up to be another perfect day.
