Transfers in Puerto Vallarta
Taxi System

Here we will discuss the different types of transfers in Puerto Vallarta. It will help you in your travel around this beautiful Mexican city.

Airport Taxi :

These special Federal licensed taxis are only allowed to drive from the airport to your resort, hotel or condo. When you tell the driver where you are going they will have a specific fee for the zone you are going to. If you have more than four passengers the fee doubles. This is the total payment to your destination, make sure you ask what currency.

As your taxi leaves the airport, the driver will pull off to stop at a kiosk. This is where you pay the amount that was agreed upon. You have now paid in full. There is no need to tip the driver. They do not expect to be tipped but if you would like to, they will accept tips.

Puerto Vallarta Taxi:

Yes, they are cheaper than the Federally licensed ones. Most hotels and resorts have bellman who will tell you what the taxi will cost before you get in. Once again if you have more than four people the price doubles. They will tell you the total price for the amount of people. Even at the local market in Bucerias they have a man standing there who will get you a taxi cab.


Try thinking of the price already including a tip. The local custom is not to tip. Many visitors do not know this and tip. Therefore the locals have a hard time getting a taxi when they may need one. This is why you need to understand transfer etiquette in Puerto Vallarta.

You can also book a private company to pick you up at the airport. You will need to book in advance and pay online before you leave. Private companys will also do tours and whole day deals with you but as always find out how much and in what currency before you agree to the rate.
