"Left....right"....useless kind of reference....try using compass point re: directions (nsew)....L/R depends on direction of travel....:light:

So true Ged!
In the guide, unless there is no possible mistake, it is all compass directions or both "Turn north (left)"... It was one of the things my editors would remind me if I started using left/ right... The compass directions work better if you use the same road to go the other direction! Of course, you have to know some basics like which way is north, south, east, west! That is why I will often have left or right included on side roads more than Hwy. 1.

Mangroves, Nature Photography, Grey Whales, it's a huge inland water body with numerous passages and sheltered bays (one of the finest natural harbors on the Pacific Ocean it was once said).

As you can see from the map, paved highways go to ports there. A few Nomads live or have homes in Lopez Mateos. To the south of San Carlos, a graded dirt road goes to Puerto Cancun and further south a paved road goes to Puerto Chale (from Santa Rita)... technically that is on Bahia Almejas but connected to Bahia Magdalena.
