Today we travelled by bus and stopped for the night in Escarcega in the state of Campeche. We are heading for the Gulf coast. The bus from Chetumal did not leave until noon so it was impossible to get an early start. If we could have left early in the morning, we could have made it to the coast all in one day.
Nothing of interest to see in Escarcega but we did find a really nice hotel just a few blocks from the bus station. Hotel Tutul Ha is the nicest hotel we have stayed at in all our travels around the Yucatan and Belize and is also one of the cheapest at 370 pesos (about $28). See the photos. After a refreshing swim in the pool, we had supper delivered to a poolside table. Grilled Chicken with mashed potatoes for 60 pesos (about $4.60 each plus the cost of drinks).
