Due to the fact that the town of Puerto Vallarta lies on the coast, with the Sierra Madre Mountains cascading to the sea, there is a variety of transportation possibilities. Adding to the geographic combination, is the fact that nearby Nuevo Vallarta, a large development to the north of the city that hosts many of the larger resorts, lies across the state line of Jalisco into the neighboring state of Nayarit. Therefore, cabs must be certified for the journey into all areas to the north across state border.
Cabs from the airport are abundant and the fair is usually pre determined by an association which calculates the destination and regulates the fee accordingly. Cabs around town are plentiful as well, and there is hardly ever more that a minute wait anywhere. Again, fees are fairly regulated because competition is stiff, but make sure to confirm the fare prior to departing to your destination.
Buses travel every route, to every part of town, and connect to the outlying areas of town as well. Trips to Sayulita to the north, Boca de Tomatlan to the south, and Guadalajara three hours to the west, are all possible by bus . The ticket costs virtually nothing and provides and opportunity to observe and enjoy the local way of life on a daily basis….great people watching!
Car Rentals of every make and model are available at many reputable firms. Jeeps and Hummers for the jungle and beach, high end “rides” for the night out with that special person, and economical transportation for the budget conscious, allow for the “chariot of choice” for all occasions.
Ocean fairing vessels of every classification are available at recreational outlets and can be found, booked, and secured at many street and concierge locations. Make sure to check around, as there are deals to be found if you take the time to search them out.
Whatever your “gig” is there is the right mode of transportation to achieve your goal!
