For the adventurous traveler around Catemaco, maps are fairly useless. There are only few roads aside from the main
highway, and other roads are mostly unmarked.

Best thing to do is ask local advise from another driver. If you ask a pedestrian he will tell you that the next horse trail is
the right road.

Maps & Distances
Mileage from Catemaco to most places in the US, Mexico, or Central America are relatively small, if you
own a small plane.

The driving times listed below are suggested by the Mexican Transportation Department and should be
increased 25% if there is another car on the highway, or 50% to allow for comfortable driving or military
checkpoints and police officers wanting to extend their personal welcome. Sorry, but toll booths do not
accept mortgages on your car as payment.
