Question Mexican itinerary

Here is a tentative itinerary for our trip through Mexico bound for Argentina. It is the first leg out of the US and Canada, and I want to ease into the "Latin" part of the trip slowly.

We are in no Rush, I have avoided both the Sea of Cortez and the Gulf/Caribbean coast. We have been on several occasions to the Beaches, and there will be plenty of time as we make our south for sand and sea. On the other hand we have never been to central Mexico.

The map shows a rough itinerary, but it is by no means definite. I do want to see some of the colonial cities, 3-4 days in Mexico city and enter through Copper Canyon. I am yet to receive the Lonely Planet, so have done little research, and do not want to over plan the route, but I would hate to miss the hidden-to-me treasures.

Point of references are as follow:

A Douglas AZ to cross
B Hermosillo
C Creel to enter the Copper Canyon area
D Batopilas
E Guachochi to exit Copper Canyon
F Torreon
G Saltillo
H Zacatecas
I San Luis Potosi
J Santiago de Querétaro
K Mexico City
L Oaxaca
M Pochutla
N Mapastepec
O Tapachula



From Tapachula, we have options to cross into Guatemala that can be explored as we get closer.

Some of the cities/villages along the way are just reference points I used to draw the line. So this is just a general South bound route in Central Mex.

What am I missing/will I miss with this general itinerary? Any suggestions re. routes and places to visits would be welcome.

I am not fearful of travelling in Mexico, we speak Spanish and are seasoned travellers. A smile and common sense are our weapons of choice.

Looking forward to comments and suggestions.

Thanks in advance
