Bus service is very good between Acapulco and Zihuatanejo. The "Estrella de Oro" and the "Estrella Blanca" buslines both have deluxe express service in air conditioned buses with toilet facilities. They even show a movie!
The police have been very vigilant on our coastal road. I made the trip 6 times in the past 2 months without incident except for having to watch the same movie for 3 of those trips!! :~(
There were several army and state police checkpoints, highway patrols visibly present, and even our "Angeles Verdes" (Green Angels) who offer free assistance to stranded motorists.
The road itself leaves a bit to be desired, but that's another story...
I recommend taking the earliest bus possible in the morning (5 to 7 a.m.) from Acapulco to Zihuatanejo or vice versa. The ride is nice and you get to enjoy the scenery. You also arrive with plenty of daytime left to enjoy. It's about a 4 hour trip.
