We avoided the Compostela segment on our return NOB by heading north at Las Varas and driving through San Blas. Then east to the toll hwy, thereby bypassing Tepic. The traffic was very manageable (light) , but the first approx. 10 miles north from Las Varas was "B" grade two lane highway i.e. rough pavement and the usual -- lack of signage through some small towns. Scenic and casual driving otherwise.
It will be our preferred route.
