A friend and I are going to Mexico for 17 days. The first 5 are in Puerto Vallarta, and we would like to go inland a bit, maybe Guadalajara - and on to Guanajuato. Is this a good idea? How long will the road back to Puerto Vallarta from Guanajuato be? How much will it cost? What town / sights are worth seeing on the way?
Completely clueless, any advice will help. Thanks

Love to help you but only know that the first class bus to GDL is quite nice and fast. Can leave around 10pm from PV and cost is not more than 40 USD. Cannot help you with the rest, sorry.

Hello there,
there is not a big difference in price for buses, but there is a big difference in service and time.
Try Guanajuato, there are hostels, there is a cool place (they say... I havent been there but the price is good and they have a website:, for 225 a day. The Cervantino Festival is about to start in Guanajuato, so prices go really up.

Try Morelia, it is beautiful simply beautiful.

Wonderful food in all these 3 places. from Jalisco to guanajuato, (maybe 2 to 3 hrs.) from Guanajuato to San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato (you just cant miss it), 2hr. from San Miguel de Allende to Morelia (2.30 hr, to 3)

Good luck.
