I agree with Peter that this is not a day trip. I did a day trip to Taxco from Cuernavaca a few weeks ago (1 1/2 hour trip). Estrella de Oro goes to Acapulco via Taxco for about a 6 hour trip.
If you have more time (time enough to stay over in Taxco) then I would recommend it. I assume the main reason would be for silver ... but you need time to look and find quality products. If it's just any silver .. you can find it in any artisan market in MX. The city itself is amazing. Built on a very steep mountain ... and the single road that passes through does not come close to "El Centro". I was lucky and the Saturday I was there was the last day of a 2 week festival. Lots of kids intertainment, street theater and a large professional dancing group. The streets of the town were built for burros.
