Talpa from above

After picking up my new passport in Vallarta last year I drove up highway 70 thru Mascota intending to overnight in Autlan. I came to the Talpa turn off to the south and had to take a look but after a mile or two was presented with this site. Overlooks or viewpoints on Mexican highways are rare but here was a good one.

Anyway it looked too far to just visit and just turn around so I headed back to highway 70 to continue. What I would like to know is if there is only one entrance to Talpa ... or is there another from highway 80.

i'm looking at my old guia and there seems to be a secondary highway from san clemente on hwy. 80 to talpa.san clemente is 50-51 kilometers north of autlan. it might work for you. glen

I'll take a look at the map but don't trust Guia Roji for secondary roads. If it's the only route between two places they seem to indicate it's an OK road.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
