Hwy. 200, as it meanders between Puerto Vallarta to the north and Manzanillo to the south, is a beautiful winding road with breathtaking ocean, mountain, and jungle vistas trading places along the way. A handful of Mexican villages dot the route, while most of the beaches are tucked into coves accessible by dirt roads that can extend for a few kilometers. If you drive along this coast, Hwy. 200 is safe and well paved, but it's not lit and parts of it curve through the mountains, making daytime driving preferable. A few buses travel this route, but they stop only at the towns that line the highway; many of them are several kilometers inland from the resorts along the coast.
