From Puerto Vallarta to Ixtapa / Zihuatanejo, Mexico)

« on: May 11 2012 11:05:00 »

I am flying into to Puerto Vallarta for a surf trip and would also like to go to Ixtapa / Zihuatanejo, Mexico.

How long is the drive or is it better to fly , if there is direct flights?

Thanks

The direct bus route from Vallarta to Ixtapa is along the Mexican 200 hwy.  Expect lots of twists and turns as the route is along the coast for most of the trip.  The travel was at night so as to save day time hours...didn't expect to see what I had.  Bus was stopped and searched half way by Mexican military and many locals on the side of the hwy burning fire in steel barrels.  By the time I arrived in Saladita, the long left was worth the travel but I'm grateful to have made the trek safely.  Locals in town advised against the bus ride due to safety. Not sure about flights.

..oh and the bus trek was about 14 hours.  Avoid night travel for safety if possible.
