Baluarte Bridge


Baluarte Bridge

Highway 40 to Durango, Mazatlan

The highest bridge in the Americas, this architectural marvel offers tremendous views — and steep tolls. If you drive in from Mazatlan, you may want to turn around shortly after you cross the bridge, as the biggest toll is shortly thereafter. Kids will love riding across the long suspension bridge, but could get scared.

Be warned that there are no rest stops along the way, so go to the bathroom before hitting the road. Many visitors choose to venture here with a tour group to avoid the hassles of driving, too.

Admission: Toll roads add up to roughly $56 US
Hours: Daylight hours recommended
