Driving To El Golfo Mexico | Mexican Road Sign Transtlations
El Golfo Tour Guide
Traveling to a new destination for the first time is always an adventure. But... it's always nice when some kind person warns you of a few things that you should be looking for on the road.
Like a dangerous curve. The road to El Golfo, Mexico is pretty straight forward. First you drive through farm land and then a few towns and pretty soon you hit desert. Straight, flat roads with very few variations.
But... you know you are close to the end of your journey when you see this sign:
Peligrosa means Dangerous in Spanish and Curva... means Curve.
And then you barrel down and curve to the right and then left, just as if you are on a roller coaster. It isn't really all that bad, if you know it's their. You can see the many crosses on both sides of the road that are a sign that many didn't pay attention to the sign.
The many times I have traveled this road, it has never been at night. This curve and drop is not lit, nor do any of the signs have reflector tape. Please be careful and drive this road with caution.
