Ernie and I drove the same stretch of road within about 3 days of each other. I ditto his words and can only add that we are heading back in November to drive around the Manzanillo are some more. We were stopped several times by Military personell and treated very kind. Their main concern was for our safety and checking for drugs and guns. They were a great source of information concerning road conditions and even asked if we wanted them to call ahead and tell the next check point when to expect us if we wanted to travel after dark. We never used that services, but a couple points were expecting us regardless and again were very kind or just waived us threw. Have fun, take your time and stop at every chance you get to buy something for the small towns along the way.
