Send me a PM with your email address and I'll send you directions - with pictures....
Would love pics and directions as we are heading to Ontario in a week or two.

Coming back, it is a little trickier. You have to exit the toll road following the signs to Zapotlanejo using a very tricky and somewhat dangerous left hand exit. As soon as you exit under the bridge, you are reversing onto the toll road headed back to Lagos de Moreno. You must immediately cross the two lanes of traffic to get to the right hand side where the exit towards Zapotlanejo is. If you survive this, you go past a large shopping center with its own exit and after that, the exit that puts you back on libre Mex 80 headed back towards GDL. Right after you pass the prison and the traffic light you are going to exit back onto the first road, going around a large circle (staying left do not exit) which will point you back towards the airport. I believe if you follow the signs for the airport at this point you will end up going the right way.
Again, be aware that there have been a number of robberies of gringo (and I am told Mexican) motorists on this road particularly during very early hours by people who either are police (one group was identified as driving a Tonala police vehicle) or masquerading as police. They may stop you with a false accusation of a traffic violation or they may claim to be looking for drugs and guns. If you drive this road, make sure you have carefully concealed your trip money and valuables and are carrying only a token amount of money.
The road is a time saver but it does have its hazards.

Huh ? ? ? ?
One slight adendum. Coming back you can take the turn by the shopping center and it will take you directly to the main road. We took this road twice last weekend and had no problems. It probably depends on the time of day as to how much time you will save, morning or afternoon Guad traffic is usually heavy so it's nice to miss that. It's only slightly less distance wise. Though it is also nice to skip a toll booth (43p). We travel to Jalostotitlan at least once a month and this has become my favorite route.

What don't you understand? It's just that you don't have to go past the shopping center to get to 80, just turn right at the sign for the shopping center.
