the toll road on the hwy 15 going south of mazatlan still has a very small strech to be finished but its perfect, it really cuts the travel time. do watch your speed since highway patrol is very active in the zone between tecuala/novillero exit and tepic. if you are traveling to GDL and your passing the toll booth at santa maria del oro before 2pm, do take the time to go have lunch at santa maria del oro.... its a 5 minute drive to the town and another 10 minutes down the mountain to the lake........ most of the places are really busy but if you look for the lagoescondido boutique hotel sign and la selva restaurant on the left side on a dirt road.. la selva is on a point and they serve the classic chicharon de pescado/ breaded shrimp... at the same time you can go next door to the lagoescondido boutique hotel and get info to stay there on a future weekend getaway.
