I am planning a driving vacation along the mexican west coast in a few weeks. Starting in Acapulco, going through Zihuatanejo, Manzanillo, Puerto Vallarta, then Guadalajara. There have been safety warnings about the coastal highway areas (highway 200) on the State Department website dated July, 2013.
As I will be driving extensively and will be in tourist and non-tourist areas, I am trying to get as sense if I should avoid any particular areas or even change my itinerary altogether. Any help and information is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
