New Hwy Jala to PV

Postby igualla » Tue Aug 02, 2016 9:11 am

Any updates on the super highway running from Jala along all the Nayarit beaches and down to PV? I thought the first phase with an exit at Las Varas would have been open by now. This will make the inland cities a quick trip to the beaches north as well as a fast link to the airport.
