Thanks very much-is the overnight safe-heard it's best to travel by day in that area.
Most long-distance buses travel overnight. The journey is almost entirely on 4-lane toll road and I wouldn't worry unduly - wandering remote mountain roads would be a different story. However if you prefer to travel by day then you could get a bus to Guadalajara and change there for a bus to Manzanillo - I am sure both legs have many departures to choose from.
You've been a great help, thanks. I have been traveling in Mexico for over 20 years-not this area yet-guess I shouldn't pay heed to the media hype.
