You can walk almost everywhere you need to get! Markets, the gym, the beach, restaurants, bars, your friends, etc. are all within walking distance! We do not have a car and we never have a problem getting around. If you need to get across town, the bus and taxi system both work really well and both extremely affordable.
Do you want a quiet, secluded beach? How about a South Beach style beach with a party atmosphere? Just like the food, Puerto Vallarta has it all when it comes to beaches! You can find a constant party going on at Los Muertos or you can enjoy a more laid back vibe at Amapas Conchas Chinas or Punta Negra, among many others!
