A destination of salty sea, candent sands, and sensuous nights opened to the world. A place that can be accessed by air, land or sea; although no matter which way you arrive in here, you will always be welcomed.
You can get to Puerto Vallarta
by the following means:
- By air: The modern Gustavo Días Ordaz International Airport, at 6 kilometres north of Puerto Vallarta, is the main way of access to this tourist paradise. The weekly traffic during high seasons is of 450 flights, both domestic and international, especially coming from cities in the United States such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Fort Worth and Denver.
Transfers from the airport to the centre of the City have reasonable fees. Travellers must approach the taxi booth to pay the fee for the service at the air terminal, where they will be assigned a van type of vehicle that will take them to their destination.
- By land: Puerto Vallarta is connected to the rest of the Mexican territory through the Guadalajara - Compostela - Vallarta Highway (it goes up to Manzanillo) and the road Guadalajara - Autlán - Vallarta; both in good maintenance conditions.
The distance between Puerto Vallarta and Mexico City, the Capital of the Republic, is of 891 kilometres. Several bus lines cover the distance on a daily basis, being the time of the trip estimated in between 10 and 12 hours.
If you do not wish to cover the distance by bus, you can rent a car at the airport or at the hotel you are staying in. Internationally renowned firms such as Budget, Dollar, Hertz and Thrifty operate in Puerto Vallarta.
- By sea: Luxurious cruisers and private yachts arrive to the coasts of Puerto Vallarta coming from all over the world. The City offers both vessels and tourists anchoring at its marina, with a 400-boat capacity, all the necessary facilities.
