|What is the benefit of Bamba Experience Hop-on Hop-off Bus Pass vs. traveling on my own?
We are here to help you make the most out of your travel Experience in Mexico and Central America. One of the advantages of traveling on a Bamba Experience pass rather than going on your own is the EXPERIENCE you will have during your trip with us. We have carefully selected the best operators in each destination so you will travel on the most optimal forms of transportation for each route; sleep in the most popular hostels; and do great activities you may not have planned but are exactly what you were looking for on your travel Experience. We will help you plan the perfect itinerary for the time you have available and pre-arrange all of your bookings so you can forget about about the details of organizing transportation and activities.
How does the Bamba Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Pass work?
Once you buy a Bamba Experience pass you can forget about the hassles of organizing transportation on your own. Say goodbye to searching for complicated bus schedules or waiting hours for the next bus to depart. With Bamba you will receive an e-mail 24 hours prior to your departure time complete with all of your departure information including bus station address, departure time, e-ticket number and recommendations on hostels and things to do in your next destination.
What is included with your Bamba Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Pass?
Your pass includes all your transportation either in First Class Public Buses or Hostel to Hostel vans plus Included activities along the route. We offer you our personalized English speaking call center with 01-800-GO-BAMBA toll free number that you can call from any public phone in Mexico to ask questions, make changes to your itinerary and receive recommendations on things to do, places to visit and other great adventure activities to do in each destination.
What kind of transportation do we use?
Hostel to Hostel Vans: 13 & 15 passenger vans.
What is a First Class Bus transfer?
Travel on a very comfortable first class public bus with A/C, TV’s and WC during the day or overnight. Nightbuses give you the benefit of sleeping along the way and saving money on a night's accommodation. (Tip: Most drivers love to blast the A/C so bring a sweat shirt or blanket to keep warm)
How do I pick-up my First Class Bus Ticket?
Everything is done via electronic ticketing and is very easy! After you make your booking and send us your STA voucher number we will automatically send you a confirmation email with a Bamba Experience recommended itinerary.

Bamba will send you an e-mail 24 hours prior to your departure time complete with all of your departure information.
Can I travel in both directions or backtrack?

Does my ticket with Bamba Experience include travelers insurance?
Our vans are insured through GNP with comprehensive Medical Insurance for all travelers aboard. Insurance does not cover our travelers outside the vans so we highly recommend purchasing international travelers insurance before you begin your trip to Mexico.
Can you provide me emergency contact information while I am traveling with Bamba Experience?
We are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week at the following phone numbers:
Within Mexico (toll free) 01 800 GO BAMBA (462 2622)
Outside of Mexico 011 52 555 584 4401 or 011 52 555 584 4402
What type of luggage should I bring?
The smaller the better but don’t worry if you don’t pack light. We have plenty of space to fit large pieces of luggage in the rooftop racks. Keep in mind that you may be carrying your luggage to your hotels/hostels on the beach, down dirt or cobblestone roads and quite possibly up and down hotel staircases.
What type of clothing should I bring?
Similar to our suggestion for luggage, the lighter the better but again, if you are not someone who packs light no worries! Keep in mind that weather conditions can change quickly in Mexico. (Ex: traveling between tropical beach climates and highland/mountainous regions or traveling during the rainy season). The bare basics are always a must: pants, shorts, short and long sleeved t-shirts, sweater, rain jacket, hat, swimsuit, towel, beach sandals, tennis or hiking shoes.
Can I join up with Bamba Experience anywhere along the route?
Of course! You can hop on or hop off the Bamba Experience transportation network anytime you feel like it. You can purchase the Bamba Experience pass that takes you throughout the entire route allowing you to join up whenever you wish. Feel free to stay in one location for a few days and then continue your adventure once you decide to move on.
Do I need a travel Visa?
Most travelers to Mexico will receive a tourist FMT visa upon arrival which should be kept safely with the rest of your travel documents. Loss of visa can be a hassle and costly penalty fees may surprise you at customs upon departure so be sure to file a police report and apply for another visa. As travel visas for each foreign traveler vary greatly, we recommend that you consult you embassy for required travel documents with 6 months anticipation before coming to Mexico.

What vaccinations and medical advice is recommended for Mexico?
A great resource to consult before traveling is US Department of Health, World Health Organization (WHO) or MD Travel Health where you can check out recommended vaccinations for your trip. If you take prescription medication, be sure to bring enough for your entire trip in Mexico as prescriptions may be difficult to attain without a doctors note. Additionally it’s always a good idea to go for a check-up before your trip to take care of unforeseen problems that may occur during your time in Mexico and interfere with your fun factor.
Where can I check Mexico travel reports?
The websites listed below publish online travel reports containing the most recent news as well as background information on every country.
