Follow the signs [Isla Holbox] in El Ideal for the road to to Chiquila.
DRIVING FROM MERIDA / VALLADOLID
Drive East on Hwy 180 past Valladolid until you reach El Ideal. Follow the signs [Isla Holbox] in El Ideal for the road to Chiquila.
TAKING THE BUS FROM CANCUN AIRPORT
There is an Airport ADO Bus that runs approx every hour from 7:00am to 10:00pm. It leaves from the airport Terminals 2 and 3 and goes to the downtown central bus station in Cancun City on Tulum Ave.
There if you arrive early enough you can catch the 7:30am MAYAB line bus to Chiquila. The next bus is at 12:30pm MAYAB line to Chiquila, and the last bus is 1:45pm NORESTE bus line.
Many flights arrive in Cancun too late to make these connections so you might have to spend one night downtown at a hotel close to the Bus Station.
Going back to Cancun from Holbox there is a 5:30am NORESTE bus from Chiquila, a 7:30am MAYAB Bus from Chiquila and finally a 1:30pm MAYAB bus from Chiquila.
DRIVING FROM MAYAN RIVIERA
You can drive through the jungle if you wish taking the route to Coba first then heading north. We only recommend this route to the adventurer. We have gotten lost numerous times taking this route ourselves and found it faster to simply take Hwy 307 up towards Cancun then turn West onto Hwy 180.
You can of course take the jungle route. Just make sure you enter with a full tank of gas and leave in the morning [plan your drive for daylight].
