Guadalajara to Acapulco?

Hey, any suggestions on a best rout to make it from Guadalajara to Acapulco? We are going two up and can do reasonable pace (both riders are ex WERA racers, and long distance riders)

Places to stop, or not to stop?

Mucho grasias ))

I was down there a couple years ago and enjoyed Mex15 that heads south of Lake Chapala and over towards Morelia. I really enjoyed 37 libre the old road that parallels the 37 cuota down to the coast that cuts off from 15 south through Uruapan and Nuevo Italia all the way down to the Pacific. Some great riding. Then coastal 200 down through Zihuatanejo to Acapulco.

Others may have ideas.

Some great roads in that area. Have fun!

Kindest regards,
John Downs

Mex 200

I am a fan of the MEX 200 - Go Straight to Puerto Vallarta and head South from there....5 Star - to camping and all in between, all the way down. Great views and the weather is still not too hot (at least yesterday was not too bad in Troncones, Gro).....my opinion on what I would do.....DO NOT EYEBALL MEXICO CITY...Unless you know what you are in for....and if that is the case, you would not be asking !

Later this afternoon, downtown Acapulco will be filled with 300 riders from the Sol a Sol coast to coast Veracruz to Acapulco run that began 2 and a half hours ago.
You'll see them.
