15 February: Sunrise

Posted on

We got up very early, before sunrise, 6.30 AM. The place was deserted, except 3 other die hards and us, Natacha, I and Raskal. The sun rise was great. A pity that our phone/camera died on us, no battery. Due to that we have only some pictures of the beginning and not of the actual […]

Our goal for the day was Oaxaca (pronounced: wah-hah-kah). An ancient city in the heart of Mexico. A drive of seven to eight hours, when lucky. We drove early over the mex 180 south. We had got the advice to take the most south, the mex 190, of the three possible routes from Puerto Escondido […]

We wanted to leave early to avoid driving in the midday heat, but overnight some of the turtle eggs had hatched. We could witness they being freed into the waves. Our next stop Puerto Escondido. One of the top ten destinations for surfers with waves up to 20 feet all year around. However touristic developed […]

We left the campground in Pie de la Cuestra in the north of Acapulco to change to the campground Diamante in the south part of Acapulco. Arriving there we discovered it to be an open plain with no shade at all. After an extended visit to two supermarkets/malls we decided to leave Acapulco and drive […]

Acapulco! Again one of these magical words/places of my childhood. Even for the girls, who are hardly on this world, it has significants. While visiting Graceland in Memphis, they watched the movie Fun in Acapulco with Elvis Presley. We wanted to take a collectivo, sort of taxi, to the cliffs of La Quebrada. We stopped […]

We left HuaHua early, so we reached Zihuatanejo early. Once a small fishers village, now a busy tourist town, but still with a small town atmosphere. It took us a while to reach our campground, because our GPS thought it necessary to direct us through the middle of town, with small streets, a lot of […]

Today we overestimated miserably our ability to travel around 430 kilometers on one day. We had planned a trip from Melaque to Zihuatanejo over the Mex 200 more or less along the Pacific coast south.We would stay in a campground in Zihuatanejo and the next day drive on to Acapulco with a stop at the […]

We left Vallarta early, but not before gassing up. We do that every day, even when not necessary. At the moment there is a shortage of gas. This as a result of the battle of the government against the organised theft of gas by the cartels.Mexico has a network of pipelines from there refineries at […]
