BUSING FROM PUERTO VALLARTA  (To the Costalegre)  BUS SPANISH PDF

P.V. BUS STATION (Central Camionera)    Bus Station Layout

PUERTO VALLATA'S MAIN BUS TERMINALPuerto Vallarta's main bus station 'Estación de autobuses' is located north of the city on Calle Bahía de Sin Nombre No.363,  just off MX-200 highway (Carretaria Pto.Vta - Tepic) at km-9.  If you arrive in Puerto Vallarta by air, you can get to the bus station (about 3 km away) by taxi or by taking a northbound "IXTAPA" city bus.  Most first class buses leave before noon, but there are hourly second class buses heading to the Costalegre.  If you arrive by airplane in the late afternoon, you will have to stay overnight before busing south, because a 1st. class bus trip takes 3-4 hours and 2nd class 4-5 hrs. You would arrive in the Costalegre in the late evening, a poor time to start looking for a hotel.

BUS CLASSES

PREMERA BUS LINEMany budget travelers choose to travel from Puerto Vallarta to the Costalegre by regional (long haul) buses, as flights to P.V. are cheaper than to Manzanillo.  First class buses are recommended, as the cost is not much more than second class and have the following available features not always found on second class buses.  Toilets, air conditioning, movies and comfortable seats.  They are also, newer, cleaner and more punctual than other classes, as they are on a tighter schedule.  You may also reserve a seat location.  Regional buses have two employees on each bus, the driver and an attendant (swamper), who helps people on and off the bus, stores the luggage and serves drinks and snacks on long trips.

BUS FROM OLD TOWN PV

PREMERA BUS LINEFor those who stay in "The Romantic Zone" south of Rio Cuale, South going buses pickup passengers at the corner of V.Carranza and Aguacate in Colonia Emiliano Zapata.  Tickets may be purchased from Chiuatlán ticket venders in front of "Abarrotes Don Chalio" #402 V.Carranza or at the Primera Plus station down the street.  Primera 1st. class bus arrives at 8:20 and the fare is $269p to Barra/Melaque (3.5hrs+).  There are hourly 2nd. class buses, with the first one leaving at 7:45.  All 2nd. class buses take a side trip to Tomatlán, making the trip an hour longer.  Take a coat or sweater, as the air conditioning can be cool.
