I wish to fly to Puerto Vallarta and take a bus to Cuyutlan, Colima. Is there a bus to Manzanillo (with stops in Cuyutlan) that leaves directly from the PV airport? Does it have frequent or infrequent departures? If the bus only leaves in the AM, is there a hotel right by the PV airport where I could stay for a night, taking a bus to Cuyutlan the next morning? Thanks in advance for the assistance!

We are frequent cruisers and will be making our fourth cruise down the Pacific side of Mexico this winter that will include a day in Manzanillo, which is one of the few major Pacific ports we've not visited. We understand that the city itself is rather unspectacular, but we also hear good things about the beaches and region around Manzanillo.
Has anyone on this forum been to the turtle sanctuary near Cuyutlan? Is it worth the six-hour excursion through the cruise line?
I hope to make a trip with my family of eleven (includes five kids) to Manzanillo and Guadalajara. We intend to rent a van and divide our time between the two places. What do you think of that plan? Any suggestions about hotels in Manzanillo? Any places that are particularly interesting between the two cities? What is the weather like at the end of August? I am an independent traveler and speak decent Spanish. Thanks.

We have booked tickets to Puerta Vallarta for a mini vacation at the end of April. Our first week will be spent with family at a resort in Vallarta. We then have one week to travel on our own.
1. Is camping a good option for some of the nights on the route from Vallarta to Colima to Guadalajara? Is security a major issue when camping? Can you leave your tent up and unattended for the day or do you need to pack it along with you wherever you go?
2. Recommendations for things to see and budget accomodations along the route? Any transportation do's and don'ts for this circuit? What are the busses like and how long does it take to travel these sections of road? Is a week long enough to enjoy this area? or should we just hang out in Vallarta for two weeks?
3. Has anyone climbed the volcanoes near Colima? Do you need a guide? Will there be snow this time of year at the peaks? Transportation to and/from an issue? Camping in the park? Special considerations for gear or time to allow for climb?
Any information on your experiences in the above areas would be greatly appreciated. Also, any tips on what to see and do in Puerto Vallarta would also be great.
Thanks in advance.
I'm going to Manzanillo, Mexico in 2 weeks (February 18-21). Does anyone know what we can expect weather-wise? Thanks!
Hello, My fiance and I are having our honeymoon in Manzanillo and are staying at the Gran Costa Real for 2 weeks in February. We would like some advice/tips/info from anyone who has stayed at this specific hotel. We are actually having another wedding "ceremony" in the fishing village of La Manzanilla, which is 60 minutes from our hotel in Manzanillo.......and are wondering how much it costs to take a 60 minute cab ride? My family wants to rent a car, but I'm not so sure that driving after the cermony at night would be safe. I have travelled to Mexico numerous times, but have never been to Manzanillo, and have never stayed in an all-inclusive resort...so this will be my first time for both. Thanks for your help! Melanie
Does anybody out there know the hotel "Dolphine Cove Inn in Manzanillo? I am looking for some feedback about it. On the internet it looks really nice and clean, but I would rather have comments from someone who has stay there. Thank you for your response!
