Route from Etzatlan to Ahualulco. This can also be done in a 4x4 vehicle.

How to get there
From the Guadalajara periférico, take highway 15 (Nogales and Tepic) 25 kilometers to highway 70 which heads southwest towards Ameca. Go about 17 kilometers to the Tala turnoff, but instead of turning, go over the bridge and continue straight towards Ameca for about 1.5 kilometers. Now turn right onto the road heading for Teuchitlán and Ahualulco. From this turnoff, it’s about 40 kilometers to Etzatlán. As you approach the town, you’ll see a Pemex gas station on your left. Turn left here and after 130 meters, turn right. This will take you to the old train station housing the mining museum. By the way, the railroad came way out here just to carry off ingots from the mine. Here you can turn left onto Allende Street and follow it south through the town and up to the Mirador and then on to Amparo.
