Although it was very tempting to stay for another day, and they were a great bunch staying at the Hotel Jalisco, I was conscious that I needed to get some miles under my belt. As far as the days cycling goes, it was brilliant. The road was predominantly flat, the surface smooth, traffic light, and in addition, a tailwind to help push me along. The Goddess of Cycling was certainly smiling on me today! The road took me through the town of Cihuatlan, where I detoured to take a picture of this church.
Making excellent time, I decided to take the bypass around my original destination of Manzinillo, and carried on cycling to Cuyutlan. Cuyutlan is a small, sleepy coastal town, where I found a hotel with a good room for 100 pesos. Feeling energised and tranquil at the same time from the ride, I patched a few old tubes in a Zen like state, and planned the road ahead.
