    Hello!

    We are planning on having a dinner and night out in PV the night before the wedding. Our resort is located in Nuevo Vallarta and we are planning on hiring a bus to transport 20-25 people from NV to PV (one way only).

    Have anyone dealt with someone or is planning on doing something similar?

    Any recommendations or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

      We are planning on doing the same thing for our wedding weekend...20-25, nuevo to puerto but going to a nightclub or something one night.

      I have some links to a couple transportation places in PV (saved of course on my computer at home, and i am at work now). but I will post those links here later tonight. Also I am going to PV this weekend and was going to set up some transportion for this weekend to sort of "check out the company" and see if I want to use them again in April. When I get back next week I can fill you on how it all went

        Ohh! Thanks so much Andi. I'll wait for that info and your feedback from your trip.

        Do you already know what nightclub you guys may go to?

        So how's the rest of your planning coming along. That's great that you have the opportunity to go to area prior to the wedding!!!

        Thanks again!

            There are a few threads re: night life in PV, but just my suggestion, try Mandala Mandala. We went twice the week prior to our July wedding and had a great time. Its located in the Malecon and has open walls.

                For hiring a bus check with your wedding coordinator. Kristin from dazzling details was able to provide me with cost and different kinds of transportation....

                Also check out if it is just cheaper to hire a driver and rent 2 vans. We found that to be the best way to go when I was there. It was a total of $180 for the night vs. $600 for a bus with a/c

                  Kathy: Thanks for the info. I'll be sure to research that option. I got the following quote from Creating Weddings, but I'm not sure what to think about the prices quoted....

                  One way bus service from Dreams Villamagna (Nuevo Vallarta) to PV (Downtown area) $385usd

                  One way van service (up to 8 people) from Dreams Villamagna (Nuevo Vallarta) to PV (Downtown area) $90usd each (VIP service - including: softdrinks, water and beer + bilingual driver).

                  The second one is most def out of the question.

                    This sounds close to what we got. $285 one way luxury bus w/ a/c holds 47 people, one way.
                    I think that is a little high for Mexico....

                      Something to keep in mind also is that the streets in the Malecon are quite small and buses do not fit. We rented a bus for the wedding party (one way back from the ceremony to the reception) and it had to pick us up a few blocks away from the the Cathedral. We couldn't remember the name of the street and got lost- and it began POURING! Luckily a jeweler let us in his shop while my new hubby and GM got drenched looking for the bus.

                      Anyhow, my point is that there are a ton of van cabs in PV and that is a great cheap option.
