  • Taking Pictures In Puerto Vallarta

  • Busing in Puerto Vallarta

    We do a lot of walking in Puerto Vallarta and for long distances, we find the taxis quite reasonable. They are everywhere, easy to flag down and not difficult on price negotiations. Lawfully, they should have a price chart in their car, in case you...
