I did this as a drive in March. We left Troncones at 06:00 and drove straight through, stopping only for gas. Our checkpoints were as follows:
Manzanillo turnoff 13:10
Barra de Navidad 14:00
Puerto Vallarta 17:00
I haven't investigate the bus schedule lately, but a few years ago there was a several hour wait in Lazaro Cardenas for a change in bus carriers.
I spoke with a couple last month who had tried to fly from Manzanillo to Zihuatanejo. It was prohibitively expensive as there were no direct flights. They would have had to connect through Mexico City.
