Driving to San Luis Petosi from San Jose Del Cabo

We are thinking about flying into Dan Jose Del Cabo and renting a car and driving to San Luis Petosi. Is this a good option or is there a bus, shuttle service or other options

Um, have you looked at a map? Why would you want to do this?

One way, or round trip?

Bus travel in Mexico is generally excellent, and if I was making that trip, I wouldn't even consider a car. Too expensive and a hassle. However, by bus (and ferry) you'd need to piece together a few segments. Might take a while.

Consider flying via Mexico City.

Well the Baja Ferries are really fun, perhaps take the one from La Paz to Mazatlan, rent your car there and do the drive via Durango and Zacatecas to SLP - I´d do multiple days as there are fantastic places to visit along the way. I actually did this by ferry and bus some years ago before they built the new road up the Sierra Madre and it was great. But not worth doing IMO unless you have time in each place - say San Jose del Cabo for your vacation, La Paz is worth a day, the ferry is overnite, Mazatlan is always nice depending on your dates - v busy Xmas and Semana Santa, then Durango worth a day or more, maybe the Sierra de Örganos national park, Zacatecas City has 3 days of sites, then on to SLP. Totally depends on your time, your money, your interests, level of Spanish and comfort level foreign travel. No kidding lots of motorcyclists do this route and I even know road bicycle people from Mazatlan who have done the Maz-SLP ride - wow that is not easy on the quads.
