This guy was actually travelling with the Federal Police, he had an armed escort (think 50 cal, truck mounted) as he was setting up a course for a mountain bike race. He seemed to know what we were up to and where we had been verifying the thought that the Fed's had us on the map. He took off in a hurry as he said he had a flight to catch.... No airport in Batopilas that I know about, maybe they had a helicopter?????

Get to Batopilas before the tour buses ruin it. Prices are sure to go up and it will loose its unique appeal.
