To go from La Herta to just north of Chamela...

start with a print of the appropriate part of the map found at

It seems better than others...

Turn left in the middle of La Huerta and head toward the villages of Mazatan, Cofradia, La Agua Zarquita, Nacastio, Juan Gil Preciado and then you'll hit hwy #200 north of Camela, south of La Fortuna.

Birria??...nope! It's pretty tough to buy almost anything along that road, let alone food ready to eat. We traveled on a Sunday and found no food outside the few and far between tiendas...better pack a cooler.

The noteworthy {meaning, we don't see them very often in Barra} birds that day included magpie jays, citreoline trogons, a mot mot, and many hawks and chachalacas.

The road was marginally passable due to washouts, and as we completed the trip we ran into a squall that would have finished off two or three spots...but given a week or two, somebody would have put some dirt in the spots and we're back to being marginal again! Definately want to take your all wheel drive vehicle if you have one

hope this helps
