Best way to get from Zihua to San Miguel de Allende

We'd like to take a little trip to SMA and we're wondering about the best way to go. Doesn't look like there's a direct bus from here to there. And what about flying?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks

We took the bus to San MIquel last year. There was no direct bus and we had to change buses in Morelia but only
had a layover of a couple hours. We actually enjoyed that, had a chance to get off the bus, stretch our legs and have lunch at one of the restaurants in the bus station in Morelia. The scenery along the way was fabulous and if you have never been on the buses in Mexico they are very comfortable and a great way to see some of the country while someone else is doing the driving. We stayed at a beautiful B and B in San Miquel and had a great time there!

It takes about 7 hours driving by car. We live in SMA and just visited your beautiful town and beaches Loved it.
By the way Bajiogo has a shuttle service. Every Sunday they take people from San Miguel and drive to Zihua and pick them up the next week or 2 whatever it's a weekly service. You should be able to take advantage it's about $109 each way.www.bajiogo.com Dlee
Sorry to hear about Las gatas

It was about 10 hours going to SMA and 9 coming back to ZIhua, less of a layover on
the return trip.

What bus line?

Thanks for this info. What bus lines did you use - Zihua to Morelia and then Morelia to SMA? It does sound like the best plan as we really don't want to go through Mexico City plus the plane is really expensive and we would still need a shuttle from the airport into SMA.

We used Parakuni on the route between Zihua and Morelia, Primera between Morelia and SMA and back to Morelia and then Autovias from Morelia back to Zihua. We have found little difference between any of the bus lines as far a either cost or comfort and have used the one that had the best departure times. We do like the double decker buses and will reserve the most forward seats on
the upper deck, great panoramic views from up there, lot's of leg room but those seats could be an issue if you suffer from any motion sickness, it does have a bit of a sway to the ride up top!

Try the travel agent on Ejido.
Jeni gave me great advice. - in English - and made all the bookings.
No going to the bus station, or guessing online.
However, they cannot book Parikhuni.
