We have friends that have moved from Portland, Oregon USA to Chapala, Jalisco, MX - They've invited us to visit. (They've already put together a country band and invited hubby to come sing some songs.)

Has anyone ever traveled from Zihuatanejo to Chapala?

I've Googled the directions, but am wondering about the road itself is it a good road? Is it a safe area to travel in? (We still don't know enough Spanish to get by in Z, let alone elsewhere in Mexico.

It's almost all toll road. Once you get on the road up the mountain to Patzcuaro, it's literally all toll road until you end up west of the airport in Guadalajara. From there it's (without pulling out the map) no more than 20 miles to Chapala.
