Video | Road Trip into the Mountains
Last week we rented a car for four days to take a trip into the Sierra Marde Mountains. I love road trips! Especially since Mike usually does the driving.
The first thing we noticed was the amazing temperature difference. While Puerto Vallarta has been unbearably hot and humid, it was very comfortable as soon as we gained some elevation. So much for cool ocean breezes.
The road to mile-high Guadalajara was five hours of mostly pot-holed country road. Being Mexico's second largest city, there are somewhere between 4 to 7 million people who live in Guadalajara's metro area! That generates a lot of traffic, both walking and driving.
Along the way we visited a Tequila Distillery and a few small mountain towns only accessible via bumpy dirt roads. Enjoy the video and accompanying map of our adventure into the mountains. And for even more photos of the journey click here.
