Cons: The toilet was an atrocity. I have never smelled anything that badly. The odor was absorbed into my clothing and I washed my pants and took a long hot shower, when I came home from San Antonio. It was gross. Tips: Make sure you pack a small meal, because you may visit a bus station that does not have vendors or a restaurant. More

He knew that I couldn't speak Spanish, so he came to me and repeat what he said in English. Thanks to him I didn't miss anything. Cons: We were one hour late, and I was catching an airplane. Luckily it only took me 20 min to go through the security check, but it still freaked me out. I was wondering if we could add a stop at the airport. Tips: Most of the travelers and the driver spoke Spanish. Even the movies were also in Spanish. I felt a little bit lost in the beginning, but the driver talked to me in English after broadcasting. As long as you let the driver know ahead of time you should be good.More
