Back Roads to Cuzalapa
Drive from Jaluco to Cuzalapa and beyond
 

It had been about 2 years since I drove up the back road out of Jaluco thru El Almolon to Tequesquitlan - the Tamarindo capital of Jalisco.  Not much new and further than I remembered but we did drive thru El Almolon (very small).   Also found a new packing plant for Casa Cortes candy company on the outskirts of Tequesquitlan.

We thought we were headed directly to Cuautitlan but ended up taking the longer route thru Lagunillas (only a few minutes longer).   Reaching Cuzalapa we found that the Women's Cooperative moved to a new building a few blocks away past the soccer field.   For some reason the coffee roaster was not working so they were short of coffee - but we bought a lot of other stuff and continued up the road toward Durazno thinking we might reach the waterfall.

With no roads signs we turned off and drove past the small town of Viejita (20-30 homes) and up the river. Finally back up the main road we made it to Durazno and beyond but found the waterfall also includes a good hike beyond where you leave your car.   Beautiful country if you get a chance to drive it.
