This is the cut off to the new highway which is already bringing in more people to the area. I have a feeling that San Blas will never be the same with this easy route. Instead of driving an hour and a half through the jungle you can now drive less than half an hour straight down from Tepic. It took them six years to make this road.
The photo above is a sidewalk and a bike path along the new road.
Road construction. It is difficult do drive this for now. Pat seems to believe that they are trying to get it done before the Easter crowds come roaring into town.
