I've been told a number of times there is a partially paved road from Cihuatlán to Tequesquitlán but have always been unable to find the starting point in Cihuatlán. Yesterday was road trip day with Glen and we decided to go looking. Using Google Maps we could see the two exit roads that meet up just beyond the map below. Very possibly why I couldn't find it before is because the one on the right no longer exists and hasn't for a long time. There's a sign of it but it's totally washed out.
So off we go in the other direction, asked at a store and he drew us a map even though we were only a couple blocks from where it started. Now I have to apologize for not having my camera on the right setting so the unpaved first section with lots of water ruts did not turn out. I figured it out when we were well into the paved section. I wasn't that enthused to make the whole trip and I was a bit worried about Glen's Honda that does not have real high clearance. However he didn't bottom out once so that gives you a clue how serious the ruts were. The whole trip was probably 1.5 to 2 hours not counting the searching. We came back down highway 80.

I've been to Tequesquitlan twice before from the backside of Jaluco up through Almolon. Here's a link to one trip including a stop at a Tamarindo packing house - Back Roads to Cuzalapa
