From Morelia just take the toll road virtually all the way and do the drive in daylight - then you should be fine. The main "trouble" is in towns and villages away from the main highways. And ask your mum and dad - they should have good local knowledge.

My wife and I just returned 3/20/14 from 2 weeks touring Morelia, Patzquaro and the Michoacan coast. We came upon armed local militia check points numerous times. We were greeted with smiles and waved through without even questioning us. We never felt in danger at anytime. Take normal precautions and you should be as safe as you are anywhere.
