Updated February 28, 2017

CHAPTER 10:  EL COCODRILARIO DE LA MANZANILLA

February 28, 2017. We are happy to report that the Crocodile Sanctuary now has a 650-meter-long boardwalk that winds through the estuary, allowing you to view not only crocodiles, but birds and iguanas as well. See La Manzanilla Crocodile Sanctuary for info and pictures.


CHAPTER 13: LOS HERVORES

March 2, 2017. Returning to Los Hervores, we discover that the geysers are no more, but there is still plenty of boiling water, a hot river, a great hot pool to soak in and a truly ideal place for camping and star-gazing. See Camping and Hiking at Los Hervores.

CHAPTER 14: LA PAHOLA

January 10, 2015. Camino Arenero is now blocked to vehicular traffic. However, you can still get to the Pahola Mine by car (OK for any sort of vehicle) by turning south from Highway 15 (Guad to Nogales) at Avenida Aviación onto Del Bajio road. Take Del Bajio southwest for two kilometers. Turn right and go 164 meters west. This same road now goes north for 829 meters and makes a sharp turn, now taking you southwest. From this sharp turn drive 1.3 kilometers to the mine.

MUCH EASIER: Follow the latest version of the route on Google Earth. Just go to Guadhikes - Pahola Kaolin Mine on Wikiloc.com.




CHAPTER 16: SAN MARCOS

March 7, 2016. The Agua Blanca River has shrunk! Water levels are no longer high enough for diving or swimming. As a result, few people are going to the site. We found no one in attendence, the toilets locked and the road  leading to the place badly deteriorated. This was during the dry season. Maybe the situation is better during the rains, but be warned!
