Getting around Puerto Vallarta and the surround Bahia de Banderas region is very simple. There is a multitude of ways to get around, including UBER, taxi, bus, boat.
Certain towns and beaches like Yelapa can only be accessed by taking a water taxi. Around town, UBER is the quickest way to get from point A to point B. Taking a city bus is the most inexpensive way to travel around the bay. Buses can take you as far south as Boca de Tomatlan, and as far north as Sayulita.
When you want to take a trip outside of the Bahia de Banderas region, take a touring bus to someplace interesting. Guadalajara, Mexico’s second largest city is only a 5-hour bus ride away.
