07-Apr-2004 -- On Easter we went to Caleta de Campos, Michoacan 1400 km down from our hometown.

On the arrival date (4th) we were driving on the new toll-road and we noticed the confluence was pretty close so we decided to take a chance right there (although we new the confluence was closer from the federal road) after a few attempts we new it would require an assault with more preparation and with less stress, my family wanted to be at the beach and with the rest of the family by then (14 hours driving).

On the 7th we drove back to the confluence following the topo maps. The easiest way is to drive from Lazaro Cardenas to Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo using the federal road 200 and right past Coyuquilla you’ll find a cattle ranch, 200m after crossing the fence it can be found.

The GPS-Zeroes dance was short provided the precision was 10m, height a.s.l. is 30m.

Michoacan beaches are excellent for camping and surfing. And the seafood is nothing but great (quality and price).


En semana santa fuímos a Caleta de Campos, Michoacán, a 1400 km de casa. El mismo día que llegamos (4 de Abril) pasamos cerca de la confluencia viniendo por la autopista y decidimos internar lograrla pero no fue fácil y después de 14 horas de manejo ya no teniamos el humor.

El día 7 regresamos siguiendo los mapas topográficos. La mejor manera es tomar la carretera 200 Lázaro Cárdenas a Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo. Poco despues de Coyoquilla se encuentra un rancho ganadero, 200m despues de la cerca se encuentra la confluencia.

La danza de los ceros fue breve pues la precisión es de 10m a una altura snmm de 30m.

Las playas Michoacanas son excelentes para el campamento y el surf. Y la comida es de lo mejor en precio y calidad.
