Patzcuaro to Zihua - Transportation?

My friend and I have just booked our annual trip to Zihua next April. We decided to fly into Morelia and spend a week exploring there and Patzcurao before heading to Zihua.I know there has been previous discussion about taking the bus to Zihuatanejo from Patzcurao on the board but I haven't been able to locate the information in the archives. Is there more than one bus line and if so, which in your opinion, would be the better? Thank you in advance for your information!:brilliant:

You can go back to Morelia and use Estrella de Oro. Or you can go down to Uruapan and use Parhikuni. Both offer direct busses to Zihuatanejo but there isn’t one from Patzcuaro.

We have gone from Patzcuaro to Uruapan for an overnight so we can visit the national park. Gorgeous place. And an interesting study in ecology and flood control. I recommend it.

If you message me I can tell you specifics about a brief stay in Uruapan and Parhikuni . We enjoyed a day in Uruapan very much.

Mexico doesn't have a huge number of national parks, but the ones they have are wonderful! The one in Uruapan is gorgeous, and a great place for lunch. All in all, it too is a beautiful city with a lot to see.

We have spent a lot of time in the state of Michoacan, and have been impressed with what we have seen. The shopping is great, too.

Have to add, we have yet to find a state that doesn't have lots to offer!

Thank you both for your replies, I appreciate it. Funny story from a trip to PV a few years ago...every vendor always seems to ask "Hey, where you from, to pull you in to look at their wares. Well I started asking them where they were from and the answers were always from somewhere out of town but this one particular young man laughed and blushed when he told me he was from Friday Harbour WA. He told me he was born in Urapan and I asked about the beautiful national park there; he blushed again because he had never been but as we talked and I said I would like to go there one day he said they had a home there That we could stay in and gave me his email address. I doubt I still have his address but still fondly remember our rather lengthy conversation about Friday Harbour and areas close by we all enjoyed visiting.
