Puerto Vallarta’s Transportation Just One Of The Advantages Of Building In Mexico

Many people who visit Puerto Vallarta to evaluate it as a potential retirement destination ask about the transportation available in Puerto Vallarta. Puerto Vallarta has a viable mass transit system, and the buses run through the jungle up and down Highway 15. If that’s not what you had in mind, you can get taxi service or shuttle service to and from major destinations like the airport. The ease with which you can get to and from Puerto Vallarta is just one of the advantages of building in Mexico.

Major car rental firms operate in Puerto Vallarta, and renting a car for the day is an easy option. There are plenty of bike paths, if you enjoy bicycling. Many people in the Puerto Vallarta area still travel on horseback! For horse lovers, this is just another advantage of building in Mexico.

Jalisco and Nayarit are in negotiations right now to develop and operate a local water-taxi service around Banderas Bay. The taxi service would permit easy-in and easy-out transportation to and from Puerto Vallarta, as well as destinations up and down the coastal waterway.

Puerto Vallarta is home to the Puerto Vallarta International Airport. Major worldwide carriers fly in and out of Puerto Vallarta every day. You can usually find a direct flight to and from most major US cities daily. In addition, Puerto Vallarta welcomes a host of domestic carriers that fly all around Mexico. The domestic carriers offer very economical flights to destinations around the country. That’s a great option if you’re looking to travel within Mexico, and another advantage of building in Mexico.

Those same discount domestic carriers have applied for permission to run flights between Puerto Vallarta and some major cities in the southwestern US. Those heavily discounted flights will begin as soon as the carriers receive regulatory approval.

You can also bring your own private vehicle in to Mexico. You’d register it at the border as part of your visa. Once the vehicle is registered, you can use it in Mexico for as long as your visa is valid. This is a great option for people who only plan to stay in the country part-time.

With low gas prices, you’ll find that transportation in Puerto Vallarta is easy and inexpensive. If you’d like more information about transportation options, please contact a Select Mexico Properties sales representative today.
