After spending two months in San Miguel de Allende, it’s time for us to stop talking about cycling and start doing it! We have planned our route south to the Pacific coast to find some beach bliss for Jenbell. We will be rolling around the lakes of Michoacán and passing through Paracho, a town of world famous guitar makers (aka ‘luthiers’). It is there that we hope to find a cycle-friendly travel guitar in order to put the tune in our tour! I may even start playing the harmonica.[iframe src=”https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=217638862659055681596.0004d6f29dcdd8ffc3d73&msa=0&ie=UTF8&t=h&ll=19.134789,-100.437012&spn=5.188107,5.482178&z=7&output=embed” height=”500″ width=”500″]
We will be camping and couch surfing our way towards Troncones, a fairly undeveloped beach town about 20 miles north of Zihuatanejo. From there we will glide on down the coast all the way to Acapulco where we will stopping off for one week at the Mayan Palace Resort. Although not what we were expecting, It so happened out that Lars’ mum has a timeshare trade with a week to use up! She kindly offered it to us as little cycling away present. Thanks, mom!
Spring Break tourists have flocked to Acapulco for many years, but our visit will be a little different. We will use it as a chance to do some writing, plan the next leg of our journey and catch up on laundry. We’re also excited to witness the amazing cliff divers!
