I drove 5 in November of 2017 and it was heavily under construction at that time. The old road/detour was not bad and the new sections great. I was towing a 16 foot trailer with 5 bikes and all of our gear and felt it was a better alternative to the congestion of northern 1. When finished will be the best way to travel. There are not many towns so be careful on fuel. Coco's is an experience. San Ignacio was a team favorite, leave the highway and go into old town. The square and church provide some great photo ops. There are several good places to eat in the square. The "Pink" one was able to provide good local knowledge. The Halfway inn right at the boarder crossing at Guerro Negro was our base while the guys were pre-running. Old, cheap, clean, friendly and the maids will do your laundry for a few bucks. The military check points are your friends but they like gifts (hats, shirts, soda) PM me and I will find the list of lodging we used.
