Best way to get from San Cristobal de las Casas to Laredo, TX?

Hi, I am looking to get to Texas from San Cristobal de las Cases, Mexico....quickly and CHEAPLY...anyone got any suggestions? I could hitchhike, but I'm a solo female traveler...and wouldn't choose that as my first option... Can anyone recommend buses or pricing or websites? I need to do this as cheaply as possible.... Thanks! Also, I have heard of ways you can transport cars for a small fee...and drive them to the owners...anyone know if this is a good way to travel cheaply...? Thanks!

Hello,

I don't think transporting cars and driving them to the owners in Mexico will be a good or a safe idea (if you are a solo female traveler and worry about your safety, this is a must to avoid!).
There was a special program at ADO buses for foreign travelers in which you can buy a single bus ticket that will allow you to travel thru all the destinations of the line during a determined period for a reasonable price. You can find the information at
Good luck!
Hello, I wouldn't recomend hitchking as an option,specially if you are traveling solo.
I would suggest you, to purchase a ADO ticket from Sn, Cristobal de las Casas to
Mexico City DF.and, from there to Nuevo Laredo,Tamaulipas, via ETN lines . that's the Mexico-USA border. I think you will probably spend USD 250.00,in total.
Sn.Cristobal de las Casas Chiapas,- Nuevo Laredo Tamaulipas.

I AM AGREED WITH MS. ADRIANA , YOU CAN GET A BUS TICKET TO MEXICO CITY AND THEN FROM MEXICO CITY TO NUEVO LAREDO TAMAULIPAS (AT THE TERMINAL DEL NORTE) AND THEN JUST CROSS THE INTERNATIONAL BORDER BRIDGE TO LAREDO TEXAS.
one of the best, cheapest, and enjoyable ways to travel around mexico, and the world, is by using the : hospitalityclub.org, website, if you are a solo traveler, you can find other young women or men, who can host you, while you are travelling, to rest a little bit and then continue with your trip to Texas.Try it, is for free!!
I think you can buy your ticket in ADO in Chiapas or Veracruz and then travel to Texas, or you can buy a ticket in there a low prices, maybe is more cheap and more quickly.
Hi, to advance more quickly, you could also combine a bus ride to Mexico City with a flight to Monterrey, Reynosa, San Antonio... with a low cost carrier such as VOLARIS, Interjet, they have often interesting promotions... depends on hows your ecological footprint for the moment;-)
Hey, I agree with the other comments. No hitchhiking. Just get to Mexico City by Bus and then take an ADO or Cristobal Colon bus to San cristobal. It is safe and all you have to do is stay in the bus. San C. is really awesome!
You can go from SC to Veracruz by Bus, then buy a flight ticket to Monterrey with Viva Aerobus thats going to be around $100 usd, and then you can take a bus again to Laredo. Safe, Cheap, and Easy. There are a lot of things you can do in Veracruz and Monterrey. If you are into eco-tourism let me know, I can help you with that. I honestly dont recomend to go all the way to Mexico City, very long way. From SC to Veracruz is not that much.
