Nuevo Laredo to Tapachula Road Log and Travel Guide
Nuevo Laredo to Tapachula Road Log
Go south my friend.
From the Colombia Mexico Border crossing, skirt beside busy Nuevo Laredo and zoom down highway 85 to the Monterrey and then Saltillo bypass.
Cruise down highway 57 on a clear, minimal toll highway. Stop if you like to visit Catorce, Matehuala, San Luis Potosi, San Miguel de Allende or Querétaro; all just off this route.
The road trip then takes the Arco Norte, bypassing one of the world’s largest cities – Mexico DF – or stops in Tula, Teotihuacan or later Cholula and climbs a pyramid with the Toltec and Aztec ghosts.
Perhaps you want colonial. Traditional. We drive by Puebla and Oaxaca – capital of their states and travel downhill and south to coast and Tapachula on the border of Guatemala.
Sublogs connect the west coast to the east; Arriaga to Tuxtla, San Cristobal to Palenque AND Tapachula to Comitan to San Christobal. US to Guatemalan Border. Central plain to West Coast to the Gulf of Mexico. A great lifetime road adventure.
