Long-Distance Buses in Puerto Vallarta

Welcoming thousands upon thousands of visitors each year, Puerto Vallarta is undeniably a major transportation hub linked up with cities and towns throughout Mexico and beyond. Thanks to the many bus companies that operate out of Puerto Vallarta's main bus station, travelers can further discover the vibrant culture and natural beauty of other Mexican destinations.

Puerto Vallarta's bus station, or "Estación de Autobuses", is located roughly 10 kilometers north of the city on Highway 200. Luckily, most of the inter-city bus lines operating out of Puerto Vallarta have additional offices in the city where you can get information and purchased tickets without having to trek out to the bus station.

To get to and from the bus station, a taxi ride will probably set you back between five and eight dollars and a bus ride only takes a few coins. From the city center, local buses with signs that read "Ixtapa" and "Juntas" will bring you to the main bus terminal. If you're at the bus station and are city-bound, look for buses marked as "Centro" and "Olas Altas". These buses depart from just beside the bus station parking lot and will bring you right into town.
