Hi everyone. My fiance and I will be in Ixtapa mid January, and I would like to take a day trip to Acapulco to finalize our wedding plans. I know that there is a bus that goes from Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo to/from Acapulco (Estrella de Oro), but when I can get their website to work, all I can find is the departure times, not the arrival times. Ideally I would like to leave around 6 am and return on a late afternoon bus. I know it will make a long day, but I've already got the meetings in Aca lined up for early afternoon, and should only need 2-3 hours in town. I do not want to spend the night in Aca since this is a quick getaway for us. Does anyone know how I can find out the arrival times for the various buses? We're staying at the Melia, should I look for a bus leaving from Ixtapa or Zihuatanejo?
Also, when my mom and dad took a day trip from Aca to Ixtapa over 20 years ago, they hired a driver for the day for $100 u.s. Could anybody recommend a driver, and do you have any idea how much it would be for a same day trip?
