    Puente Baluarte, bridging the states of Sinaloa and Durango. Soon to be opened.

    SR took this photo on Saturday. We had lunch on the bridge.

    For some perspective here's a shot of the rode leading to the above pic. Was taken last January from the Puente Baluarte.

    Hi Y'all! :D

    What are some towns close to the pyramids of the Sun and Moon with a selection of hotels? I stayed in Pachuga last time, but I think there are some towns closer. I am in Acapulco at the moment, but will be headed in that direction via Morelia later today. Thanks!

    Clearly the 24 hours I spent there was not enough. My stay was very pleasant but there is clearly a lot more to experience given a local ADV'er. I look forward to a return visit.

    Anyone ordered their TVIP online? It is asking me for my entry date into Mexico. I am unsure of my exact date. If I am a day or three late (or early), will this be an issue? Does the date have to be exact?

    All the time.

    Just enter México anytime on/after the TVIP effective date, not before.

    Make sure Going South takes you to the rooftop bar at the Freeman.

    A sublime afternoon watching surfers, ships, and a 360 view of Mazatlán.

    Jim is a great ADV host and it was a perfect afternoon up there, followed by grilled lobster at Costa Marinera.
