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.
    Thanks Amy! I completely agree. After getting a few quotes with "gringo" prices, I decided to play by ear and not over think it. Since, we are planning on getting there a few days before all our guest, we'll try to hire/rent a couple of vans or make friends with van cabs drivers (work my charm ) to try to get a good deal...

      Let me know how the bus versus vans things work out, as I am also looking into this option. Sara

        If you're still looking, we are using Superior Tours Vallarta. My guests are traveling a great distance (2 1/2 hr. drive) and we got a pretty good price.

          Hi all, the wedding at Le Kliff was this last weekend, 5-22-2009.
          We used the reference for Superior Tours that was posted on this thread. They were GREAT!!!!! and the price was very reasonable with each 3 vans costing $100 each , for 10 persons, to Le Kliff , which was an hour away and back. The start time was 4 pm for the first group of 10, and they stayed and waited for us to leave at 11 pm.

          We also used them to pick up all the guests arriving at all kinds of times at the airport, they were just a dream to work and coordinate with.

              We are coming down in November and I have 75 people to transport from Nuevo Vallarta (Dreams) to downtown for our welcome dinner. We have hired 2 buses through Puerto Vallarta Tours at $8 USD per person roundtrip (Raul's email: admin@puertovallartatoursguide.com)

              and yes - others are correct that the streets are narrow. We actually have to get off the bus and walk an additional 4 blocks to where we need to be but it is way more fun and cheap to keep everyone together on 2 buses! Good luck!

                This is exactly the type of info I was looking for myself! I'll be looking into all the van/bus rental companies that were recommended.

                What about nightclubs? Someone recommended Mandala - any others? We are planning on continuing our party once the Villa rules force us to quiet down at 11pm!

                  The Westin resort quoted me

                  US 320.00 for a nice bus with air conditioning and for 40 persons round trip Hotel - Church - Hotel.

                  That is for a ride to the big old Cathedral downtown, and then back to the hotel after the wedding ceremony.
                  120 guests CONFIRMED!
