Going with my family on a vacation, this is my daughters second time there. We usually stay in can cun. Can you tell me if there are places that I can get to via bus. Previously we caught the #1 bus and got to one side of can cun to the other. Could I get to Playa del Carmen, or xel ha or isxcaret by bus?
