Puerto Vallarta’s Gustavo diaz Ordaz International Airport (pvr) on highway 200 about 10km north of the city, is served by several national and international airlines. Inside are many duty- free shops, exchange houses including amex good rates, and car rental stalls, again better rates than in town.
Getting around to and from the airport:
The cheapest way to get to and from the airport is on a local bus for about .40 USD, Aeropuerto juntas and Ixtapa buses from town all stop right at the airport entrance, Centro and Olas Altas buses go into town from beside the airport entrance.
A taxi from the city center costs around $12 usd from the airport to town, fixed taxi stands inside the airport ask different prices depending on where you want to go.
The charge approximately: $10 usd $14 usd $18 usd to Marina Vallarta/ Centro/ Zona Romantica/ also Old Town or Olas Altas.
But go outside the airport and you may need to cross the blue and orange pedestrian bridge and passing taxis charge around $8 usd $12 usd $16 usd for the same destinations.
Vallarta’s long distance bus station is just off hwy 200 about 10km north of the city center and 2km north of the airport.
Most intercity bus lines have offices south of the Rio Cuale, where you can buy tickets without having to make a trip to the station.
They include Elite, Tns and Estrella Blanca on the corner of Badillo and Insurgentes. daily departures from the main terminal include the following: Barra de Navidad, Guadalajara, Manzanillo, Mazatlan, Mexico city, Rincon De Guayabitos, San blas, San Patricio Melaque, Sayulita, Tepic.
I have travelled many times throughout Mexico and always take first class buses for travelling. Luxury seating with movies in English and Spanish, washrooms on the bus, with coffee station, and drink station, best way to travel in Mexico.
YOU ARE INVITED TO EXPERIENCE A PLACE YOU CAN ESCAPE AND FEEL AT HOME.
