One Week in Mexico - Itinerary Suggestion Needed

Hey folks. I have found this bulletin very helpful in the past so I like to get your advice again. I am taking my son, 13, to Mexico with me for one week in April ( he has special needs so I wont be taking him to many museums and cultural places). As usual, I like to visit many more than I could manage in one short week. We are flying Saturday, March 31 to Mexico City, and flying back from Mexico City the following Saturday, so its somewhat shorter than I wanted. Given that, I was thinking of the following itinerary. What do you think?

X Saturday, March 1st V Mexico City
X Sunday V Mexico City and surroundings
X Monday V rent a car and leave for San Miguel in the morning V arrive by early afternoon
X Monday night, San Miguel
X Tuesday, Leave for Guadalajara
X Tuesday night in Guadalajara
X Wednesday in Guadalajara
X Thursday morning leave for Puerto Vallarta
X Thursday, Friday in Puerto Vallarta
X Friday night, fly to Mexico City V late flight
X Saturday morning, fly back to San Francisco

I am tempted to cut back either from Mexico City or Guadalajara and add a day in Puerto Vallarta, especially if we can travel up or down the coast there. What do you think?

Also, based on what I read, I also very much like to see the flowing cities but cant make the time for it. Do you think I should substitute one of these for anything above?

Ï Colima
Ï Ixtapa & Zihuatanejo
Ï Taxco
Ï Oaxaca

Thanks for your help.

I think it's overly ambitious as you'll spend half time in the car.

You will be spending most of your time in cars, busses, airports, airplanes. You are covering a LOT of ground for 7 days only. And you definitely don't need to add any more places imo!

Waaay too much on this itinerary. Personally, I'd chose two places instead of 4. Four different hotels, 5 trips, too much to remember even being there.

I would suggest simply going to Puerto Vallarta for the week. It's a wonderful place. Perhaps flying or taking a bus to Guadalajara for 1-2 days, if you really want to see two places.
