Can you get 56 miles of decent road down in that area to ride a tri bike on?
I know the roads in Huatalco itself are new, but what about getting enough
miles without going out onto Hwy 200, the main road. As I remember it, it was
one of the worst strecthes of road I ever drove in Mexico. More a series of
large holes held together by asphalt.

there is quite a bit of new road down there, and there's no traffic on it
when they race.  the thing, though, is that they didn't make much attempt
to cut and fill when they built that road.  it's wide, with a center
divider, and four lanes (and no traffic).  but it goes up and down and up
and down.  nothing long, an eighth to a half mile at a time.  but very
challenging.  and it gets africa hot.

other than that, very very pretty place. and close to puerto angel, not
too far from puerto escondido, unbelieveable ocean fishing if you're into
that kind of thing, all in all a good spot to take the whole famdamly.

We were very cautious about defining the course. The main road of the
resort, has been extended with an excellent beautiful road call "La
escenica". This road has incredible sights and the pavement is great.

The course will not get into the Highway 200. You can watch the course
maps in the website www.halfironmanmexico.com

oh, hey, i agree the pavement is excellent.  it's a beautiful road.
perfect for racing.  my only comment is that it is not a flat road.  it is
challenging.  my kind of course.  who wants flat?
