Up Sparks Mexico » Autlan
Autlán de Navarro
or just Autlan, Jalisco - Mexico
 

Another town that has some feel of the Colonial Era but has not been preserved as such so new is mixed with the old.  It's a good sized town with lots of downtown activity - market, plaza and a number of chruches.  The bull ring (Plaza del Toros) is close to downtown and one of the fanciest ones I've seen.  I really should have tried to get a few fotos of it - even if only the outside.

After coming out of Ayutla onto highway 80 there is a large drop in elevation into the valley where Autlan is (those famous hair-pin turns).  I cruzed downtown and then stayed at Hotel Autlan near the bus station - nice place for about $40us.  The next morning I walked around town, had breakfast and headed downhill again towards Purificacion and La Huerta (more hair-pin turns).
