April 2nd, 2010. Los Michos to Mazatlan, 258 miles
The second leg of our 500 mile drive to Mazatlan. With the exception of more toll booths to stop at (5 in all), the road was easy and we made the town in about 4 hours. This is Good Friday and school is out, so for a lot of Mexicans this is a holiday week. When we arrived in town, Tom and I reminisced about our trip here a couple of years ago. At that time it was September and Mexican Independence Day, it was a mob scene in town and this was no different. The first camp-site we selected "The Mar Rosa", which is very close to the tourist center, was full. So we headed to another "The Punta Cerritos" that we had checked out on our last trip that is located to the north of town. Much quieter and we were glad the Mar Rosa didn't work out. We stayed until Tuesday. The weather was fabulous, in the 80's, with a breeze. Got to the beach and Tom played in some waves. But to be in Puerto Vallarta by the 17th, we need to move on. Next place - Teacapan.
