What can any of you tell me about hiking (not biking) the Ciclopista, the part from Instituto Technologica to Ixtapa and/or the part from Ixtapa to Playa Linda? Which part do you recommend, what time of day (early morning, early evening perhaps?), do we need our hiking boots, etc.
I have Googled and searched on this Board and looked at maps including Rob's reference, but the maps are at least to me ambiguous, so i still have this question re the Ixtapa to Playa Linda part: for the NWern part if we cut out the Marina/golfcourse section and take the bus toward Playa Linda, where does the path cross the road and head away from the coast (would like to save the time and effort hiking along roads)?
Ditto, for the part from Zihua, where do we pick it up to minimize hiking along the road? And will we need a (hopefully non-UTAAZ) taxi to get to that "cheat point"?
Thanks a lot.
