Puerto Vallarta Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport (PVR)
Travel and Ground Transport
(Puerto Vallarta, Mexico)
Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport is located within the city limits of Puerto Vallarta and public transport is based on a zone system, where prices reflect how many zones you pass through.
Minibuses and taxis are the most common form of transport from the airport to the city and a surcharge for leaving the airport is levied.
Unfortunately, local buses do not serve Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport, although if you are on a budget, buses run along the M200 highway to Puerto Vallarta, with the highway being a five to 10 minute walk from the airport grounds.
The regular Combi buses (Colectivo minivan) run from the airport to the city throughout the day. There is a kiosk situated outside Arrivals where you can prepay for the journey, although this is only open in the daytime.
Hotel Shuttles Buses
Those who are staying in upmarket hotels will usually have the option of taking a courtesy shuttle. If this service is available through your particular hotel establishment, you may be able to pre-book a pick up along with your reservation. Alternatively, you can call from Arrivals for a pick up.
Taxis operate much the same as the airport's minivans, with a ticket kiosk situated outside Arrivals and the amount of zones being crossed affecting the fare. If money is not an issue, this is the quickest way to reach the city, while if you are on a budget, cheaper taxis can be found on the highway.
