New by-pass to avoid Culiacán

Can't Post | Private Reply
Dear friends.-

Starting August 22, we opened the Culiacán By-pass, which avoids passing thru Culiacán. This will make your trip about 40 minutes shorter if you don´t need to go to Culiacán.

To take this short-cut, on the Guasave- Culiacán highway, take it at km 19 at the "Mazatlán cuota" green traffic sign, to the right. There, you´re just 2 hours away from Mazatlán! The short-cut is 22 km long and leaves you at the first toll plaza on the Culiacán - Mazatlán highway.

By the way, at km 90, you can reach Playa Ceuta to the right, about 7 km away and may eat very good sea food with a very nice sea view. First restaurant on the left.

See you around!

I didn't understand that Post when it was written over a year ago..... if one stays on the 15 Cuota one doesn't come close to Culiacan in the first place. No?

while on the subject of Sinaloa and the toll road, there are close to 100 un official openings to the toll road..... not to safe for travelers.

I just took the Culiacan bypass last week, it is a secure,high speed toll road that saves at least 45 min. over the old route.......I say the farther away from Culiacan the better.......
