Hi, Any ideas how to undertake this journey by bus? We will be staying in Zihua. Thanks in advance
Hi. I pulled a guidebook off the shelf. Zihua has 3 major bus terminals side-by-side. I'd take a taxi there, and figure it out on the spot. Reservations rarely needed other than during major holidays.
(Moon Pacific Mexico, way more details than I feel like typing.)
I believe there is no direct bus route between these two places; all buses go via Guadalajara. This makes the trip pretty long.
I tried to find direct bus last February, but could not and changed my itinerary because of that.
I would be glad to know if there is a direct bus route so that I can visit both places on my next trip without paying for local flights or spending more than 12 hours on a bus ride.
Just took the bus trip from Zihuatanejo to Barra de Navidad. You leave at 8:00 pm from Zih on the Futura Busline and it goes directly to Melaque providing the roads aren't blocked, otherwise you have to go up to Guadalalajara and down. Arrived in Melaque at 6:20 am, no depot just dropped off on the street. Thank goodness a taxi drove by at the same time and took us to Barra. The trip was very exhausting as the road is windy and the bus had to slow down for all the speed bumps along the way. Hope this helps everyone....
