We have a place to stay for 2 weeks in Manzanillo, and then plan to take a bus trip to Puerto Vallarta and stay there for a week before we fly out of PV. We have been to both cities and are looking for some advice for our last week road trip to PV. Is there an interesting inexpensive place to stay a night or two between the cities? We love to snorkel, have our own gear, like casual safe environment with locals, speak very little Spanish. How is the bus travel? Will they let us off in between? Any info about a clothing optional beach on the way. Our trip is planned for Feb 20 to March 13, 2013.
I've emailed a friend that lives in PV to get his opinion. Last time we talked he indicated that he didn't travel out side of the city much.
In the Baja the bus drivers will let you off most anywhere you like. Tips are appreciated. They will also stop and pick you up on the highway if you flag them.
You're not going to be really close to the water except for Maleque unless you stop at Tomatlan.
