How do I get to Mitla?

The Mitla Ruins are located about 3 miles west of Mitla's center, near the intersection of Highway 190 and the major road going to Mitla. Tell the bus driver you wish to see the Mitla Ruins and he will drop you off at the crossroads, only a short walk from the entry gate. The site is open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., except for religious holidays.

Buses run between Cancún and all major cities in the state daily; the trip takes approximately 6 hours. There is one direct bus a day that goes to Mitla from Cancún (called the "Oasis" bus); other than that, you need to change buses in Merida. The fare is $40, but it's cheaper if you take the Oasis bus (only $25).

There are two types of tickets for the buses: regular and tour. The regular ticket allows you to stop along the way anywhere except at designated stops. The tour ticket allows you to get off the bus at any point along the route and continue your journey on another bus which will take you to the next stop where you can repeat this process until you reach your destination. The last tour bus leaves Mitla at 18:00, so if you want to stay longer you'll have to buy an additional ticket.

You can also rent a car at the airport to save time.

How do you get to Isola Bella?

The Best Way to Get to Isla Bella Isola Bella may be accessed from downtown by taking the cable car to Mazzaro and then turning right for about 200 meters, or by walking through Via Pirandello to the observation point "Isola Bella" and then taking a route that goes straight to the island.

There is also a ferry service between Porto Cervo and Isola Bella which runs throughout the day. The cost is 3 EUR per person and the journey takes about 20 minutes.

The Island has two parts: the town of Isola Bella and the park surrounding it. You cannot reach the town center from the ferry port so they provide their own shuttle service at a cost of 10 EUR per person round-trip.

There are no cars on Isola Bella so if you want to go shopping or have any repairs done you will need to hire one of the local drivers at about 70 EUR per hour or take a tour with one of the many operators who offer these trips.

The only way to get around the island is by foot. There are some bikes available for rent but they can't go more than 15 km/hr because the roads are not designed for this speed. There are plenty of places to stop and look around though, so don't worry about going too fast!

Vehicles that do not have current registration tags or are otherwise unlicensed will not be allowed inside the camp grounds.

Camp Mabry was established in 1943 by the United States Army as an infantry training school for young men between the ages of 17 and 25. The camp has since been used for various other purposes including military housing and as a correctional facility.
