Discover the new
Mazatlan-Durango super highway , that runs through the
biggest mountain chain in all of Mexico.
Completed in 2013 at a cost of over $2.2
billion, Highway 40D has reduced the travel time
between the seaside retreat of Mazatlan and the
capital city of Durango state from 8 hours to
only 3 hours, allowing visitors to Mazatlan to
experience the stunning scenery and historic
splendor of Durango, a UNESCO World Heritage
Site, on day trips for the first time.
The highway consists of 115
bridges and 61 tunnels, including 9 "smart
tunnels", with the highlight being 3,600 foot
long Baluarte Bridge, a marvel of engineering
and the world's highest suspension bridge at
over 1,300 feet above the Baluarte River, the
natural border between the states of Sinaloa and
Durango. All around you are the
spectacular landscapes of the Sierra Madre
Occidental, complete with its stunning
volcanoes, cliffs and rivers.
Founded in 1563 by Spanish
conquistador Francisco de Ibarra, the historic
capital of Durango features nearly 1000
historical buildings in the city center alone.
Here we will take a guided tour of Plaza Las
Armas and the historical center and discover a
stunning array of colonial and post-colonial
buildings, churches, local shops, the famous
Pancho Villa Museum and the city scene of modern
Sierra Madre Mountains
