I’ve been forgetting to post this for a few weeks and finally remembered today.


About 3 weeks ago they installed 2 sets of topes on the waterfront stretch of road in the Tinajas neighborhood, going both directions.  So heads up, the new topes are not painted and there are no signs.  They are the same asphalt as the road surface, so not easy to spot.


Last week another tope was installed further east, right before the little Policía outpost building on the south side of the street.  So there are 3 to look out for now in the space of maybe a quarter mile (?).


Be safe out there...

They are hard to see but very easy to find.

Instead of filling holes with asphalt to smooth the roads, they make topes to create more bumps in an an area where the traffic already moves pretty slow to just take in the nice scenery.

Thanks.

On one regional tourist map it is called Bulevar Bacochibampo, some Mexicans call it the Delfinario Road, some gringos call it the Miramar Road, and I have seen other names for it on other maps, Bulevar Escenica something.
Las Tinajas is the first residential neighborhood you pass by (after you turn left at the flashing light), as you drive along the Bacochibampo Bay waterfront, across from Miramar.  The portion of road where if you look across you can see the Pearl Farm.


The road probably takes another name when you reach Las Tinajas, but if so, I don’t know what it is.  I’ll have to look at the street signs in that area today when I go through there.

Thanks, Marigot and Rich. I know exactly where it is. For some reason, I thought it’d be on 15..

I totally agree with Righton. As you turn right in front of the first Extra, there is a palm tree blocking the view and cars coming into SC at 50-6o MPH. Very dangerous.

Well, surprise, surprise!  Yesterday the topes on the east end near the little Policía building were painted white.  Still no signs for any of the three sets of topes.


And the street signs along that waterfront section of road do proclaim it to be Bulevar Bacochibampo.

#8 and #10 - several years ago (late 90's?) a tope was installed at the intersection with the "Loma del Mar road".
It only lasted a few days. The then goberador(sp?) of Guaymas insisted it be removed!! His driver must have hit it going too fast and threw him into the roof.:(:D
