Faces of Mexico

San Carlos

by Dorothy and Bill Bell




San Carlos or Nuevo Guaymas is a seaside haven with a population about 3,000 swelling to 7,000 residents in high season. 70% are American and Canadian. This graceful resort and residential area is known for its beautiful beaches and vistas of the San Carlos Bay. It has a decidedly American influence and differs sharply from its twin city of Guayamas only a 10 minute drive south down the highway. San Carlos is only a  four hour - 250 mile drive from the border towns on Highway 15- a four lane divided highway. There are four toll stations along the way. You will immediately notice Tetakawi hill with its brilliant gold color - the informal symbol of the city.

"For years, our clients have asked us for updated road logs of Mexico. The On The Road Logs are updated, simple to read, easy to use, and offer the perfect solution that our clients have been asking for. As we insure over 100,000 vehicles crossing into Mexico each year, we believe that the On The Road logs provide our customers with additional peace of mind, and will allow them to have a more enjoyable Mexico travel experience. They may even prevent U-turns and collisions! By using the On The Road Logs, our clients will experience less stress and have a more relaxed driving experience, which should also help MexPro with reduced claims that in the past have resulted from customers getting lost or losing their composure" ....Jim Labelle President of Mexpro Insurance, the leading provider of Auto Insurance for USA and Canadian vehicles entering Mexico


"Best road log since Mexico Mike hit the pavement. Valuable, up-to-date information that saves headaches on the road and makes sense to drivers and their navigators. Great work."
Ken Stokes, Mexican Road Veteran

"We've been driving Highway 15 for 20 years and found the Highway 15 Road Log extremely helpful. We didn't have to guess when we should fill-up the rig or slow down for unmarked topes."
Carole Thacker, La Penita RV Park

"It was our first time driving in Mexico and we purchased Highway 15 Road Log. I don't know how we could have driven to Mazatlán without it. Really well presented."
Marilyn and Keith MacDonald.
