Where I stayed
Hotel San Antonio
While here I stayed at Hotel San Antonio, Calle 25a, No 202. This new Hotel overlooks the main Plaza and cost $220 for a single occupancy. Tel: (997) 9721893 , Web: www.hotelsan-antonio.com , Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The best budget option is Hotel Sierra Sosa, No. 199 Calle 26, between Calle 21 + 23, Tel:(997) 9720565 . The en-suite rooms were simple with fan, cable TV and cost $170 for a single and $190 Peso for a double occupancy.
Hotel Plaza was the best place in town with large, air con rooms costing between $300 - $500 Peso, with free Internet and bottled water www.hotelplazayucatan.com
The other place in town which looked pretty good was Hotel & Restaurant Villa Real, Calle 23, between Calle 26 + 28, Tel: (997) 9722828 . All rooms had air con and cable TV and cost $250 for a single and $300 for a double occupancy.
It’s impossible to get lost in Ticul as all the streets are numbered with even numbers going north to south and odd numbered streets going east to west.
Ticul´s bus station is situated on Calle 24 between Calle 25 and 25a. Buses and colectivo´s run every 30 minutes for the 90 minute journey to Merida and every 15 minutes for the 20 minute journey to Oxkutzcab. There are plenty of colectivo´s leaving for the 15 minute journey to Santa Elena from beside the market.
It’s just as easy to hitch lifts in this neck of the woods. If you enjoy doing this and want to get to Santa Elena or the nearby ruins of Uxmal or Kabah, then walk down Calle 34 which leads out of town towards Santa Elena and wait just after Calle 31 where there is a speed hump. Here you will have no problems in getting a ride.
