This route through Durango is a very fast, very scenic drive, at least from Durango to Mazatlan. You drive over world-famous Baluarte Bridge (one of the official wonders of the world).
Hotels, RV parks and parking spots detailed as well as road directions. All in all, a great ride for motorcylces too. There is birding and Alpine lodging just off the toll road in the Sierras. That part is safe & interesting to visit.
