Puerto Vallarta Car Rentals

Puerto Vallarta has plenty of different methods of transportation for locals and tourists to get to their destinations. The best way to get around with public transportation is by bus.

Buses are cheap and easy to get from one place to another. Usually, bus fare is $0.50 one way. It is important to keep hold of the bus ticket, as inspectors often check for valid riders.

If you are going to stay within the hotel zones, make sure you look for a bus that is labeled “Hoteles".

Bus tip: The first two seats behind the driver are reserved for the disabled and women who are pregnant.

If you decide you would rather take a taxi, make sure you are street smart. Taxi fares are charged by zone rather than meter, so it can be tricky to figure out the total cost of your trip. Ask the taxi driver for a list of zone costs.

The minimum fare for a taxi is usually $3.00. Trips from the airport to a hotel is usually a minimum of $10.00.

When choosing a rental car, beware of multi-national rental companies. They often do not quote all of the mandatory insurances on their websites. Once you go to pick up the rental car, they will double or triple your rate.

Remember, although you may have car insurance outside of Mexico, it will not cover you when renting a car in Mexico. Mexican liability insurance is mandatory. Check to make sure you have proper insurance before driving.
