It's around 1100 miles from Nogales to La Manzanilla via the toll roads, not 2300 (was that round trip, Erin?) |
The last time we used the toll route, it took us about 28 driving hours. That's two really long days; I'd recommend 3 days for more safety and comfort. In Mexico you really don't want to drive after dark, or even near dusk.
Breaking the trip into 3 days puts you around Ciudad Obregon or Navajoa the first night and Mazatlan the 2nd. You get to Mazatlan a little early, but there isn't much lodging another hour or two farther south.
We stay in a low-grade motel in Navajoa for 300 pesos, then we tent camp the 2nd night well south of Mazatlan at a friend's beach restaurant (so I can't help you with Mazatlan lodging.) Let me know if you want more info on the Navajoa motel.
Have a safe trip!
