Overnight Bus From Zihua To Puerto Vallarta

We took the bus from Zihua to PV a few years back and wouldn't do it again. We left at midnight (the only one available to go along the coastal route) and were stopped and boarded 9 times by Mexicans wearing balaclavas and carrying machetes and/or machine guns. They were looking for someone we think as each time they walked up and down the bus looking at everyone. We were asked for id by one set who looked at our driver's licenses and handed them back. We were the only gringos on the bus so did feel kind of obvious but to be fair, nothing happened to anyone. It was just a bit disconcerting in the middle of the night.... We have also driven from PV to Zihua in a rented car in the daytime and have had no issues.
