No. Just no.

Floridians make a clear distinction between Gulf Coast Florida and Atlantic Coast Florida. And no one in Galveston, NOLA, Mobile or Biloxi will say that they are on the Atlantic. They are on the Gulf of Mexico, plain and simple.

If there are roads, most places in Central America would fit the bill.

Yeah, if people are up in arms about the whole Gulf of Mexico/Atlantic Ocean thing, then I guess Central America with the Caribbean Sea/Atlantic Ocean thing wouldn't work either.

So my answer would be somewhere in southern South America. The thing about that area, there are not that many roads and where there are roads they usually end up not being on the coast, but further inland in fjords and whatnot.

There aren't any roads crossing the Andes as far as I know

There are, when I worked down in Antarctica, we had to go through South America to get to the station where I worked, and after one of my deployments, I had coworkers take a bus from Santiago to Buenos Aries. I ended up flying. It was Route 60 in Chile, which becomes Route 7 in Argentina.

You can see all of the switchbacks on Google Maps on the Chilean side:

https://www.google.com/maps/@-32.850.../data=!3m1!1e3

The other routes in Chile / Argentina that cross the Andes are:

Chile Route 215 / Argentina Route 231
Chile Route 199 / Argentina Route 60
Chile Route S-61 / Argentina Route 13
Chile Route 181 / Argentina Route 242
Chile Route 115 / Argentina Route 145
Chile Route 41 / Argentina Route 150

These are just some of the "major roads", there are also some minor ones that cross the Andes as well.

To answer the OP, you can live in Córdoba, Argentina and be within a day's drive of both the Pacific Ocean and Atlantic Ocean.
