Saltillo Stories and Tips

Carretera Federal 57

The highway is in good condition in general although there are some parts that are a little behind in maintenance. I opt for toll roads in the later years because they are faster and free roads are not mantained either. I usually do it in one drive 12 to 13 hours long from San Antonio to Querétaro, but if I have to stay, I generally stop at Saltillo or at Matehuala (unless of course weariness MAKES me stop at different spots).

It is very safe all through but don´t be scared by the multiple stops (military, police or drug prevention) looking for either drugs or guns.

Been to this destination?
