When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Amado or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Amado. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Amado
