San Cristobal –
We get up more or less early for our ziplining tour today. On the main square, opposite the many coffee shops is our meeting point – Andre and Diana are on time to pick us up in a minivan. We are on out way to the nearby canyon.
The ziplining tour is fun – we ride 3x across the canyon at different points, and get told a local legend about this place in between. Andre sure is talkative, and the hiking to the next ziplining spot doesn’t get boring. Around noon we are back in San Cristobal and run a decide to walk the pedestrian street up to the highest church. You get a very cool view there on the city. It starts to drizzle, so we take a break in a cafe and I get some traditional Dia de los Muertos pastry. A few hours later we are browsing an indigenous market. We decide to visit the Dia de los Muertos celebrations in Merida instead. Stupid mistake – The moment we return to the hostel to pick up our stuff for the onward journey to Merida, we see some guys also staying in the hostel come back from the cemetery. The festivities are well today in San Cristobal at afternoon times . Nevertheless, we have to go to the ADO station .
The overnight bus to Merida is well booked. But compared to the minibus earlier you can hardly feel the bumpy road. You can sleep here quite easily.
