What is the distance in milage between Taxco and Acapulco,
I thought this was going to be an easy one.....but it isn't!
1) The official government website lists the mileage as 172.5 if you head south to Iguala and then east to the highway at Paso Morelos. I have never done it that way and it doesn't look very sensible!
2) You could head all the way south through Iguala to Chilpancingo on the free road but that can be very slow if you get stuck behind a truck. It is several miles shorter though.
3) The quickest most reliable way (albeit longest) is simply to head east from Taxco along a small toll road and pick up the freeway at Puente de Ixtla. Then zip the rest of the way south on the freeway (where the roadworks are mostly finished now).
From Taxco to Acapulco the approximate distance is 224kms (about 140 miles). This is via Iguala - Zumpango del Rio until you merge to the Autopista del Sol before reaching Chilpancingo. The portion Taxco - Chilpancingo is not a high speed road [it has only two lanes, some straight segments that allow you passing, and some curves from Zumpango to Chilpancingo] but is the shortest route (if you are not in a hurry)
