Rent a Car. it is an easy drive up highway 200 to Punta Perula and shouldn't take more than an hour and a half, two hours max. It isn't really the sort of trip that is ideal for the bus unless you plan to stay a couple of days at Perula.

While you can get a bus to Punta Perula it is a long bus trip and service is not that frequent as you'll need the Puerto Vallarta bus to get to Perula. From where the bus will let you off on the highway it is a mile or so to get to the beach though you may be able to flag a taxi.

The other option is to take a second class bus to Melaque - they run roughly every hour - and try for a PV connection there. There are more buses to PV from Melaque than from Manzanillo because some come down highway 80 from Guadalajara and Autlan and head to north to PV. That said, they too are not that frequent.

If you do get up to Punta Perula. Be sure to stop at Chamela beach, it is really the best beach in that area and you can get some good vistas if you climb the small headland between Chamela beach and Negrita beach. Also see if you can hire a fishing panga to take you out to the Islas Cocinas just off shore. They are really the jewel of that entire area.
