      there are usually a huge number of taxis that are all ready to take you away. Many of them are van size so I am so certain you will not have any problem getting 3  vans to transport you all. From my memory, it seemed that there were more taxis than regular cars.

        its just such a pain though to use a bunch of taxis and I would want to pay for everyone to make it easier.  I would prefer a chaffeur van to just pick everyone up.

          Chicago.....If you find something fabulous let me know.  I'm also looking for a van to pick up 13 ppl + luggage and I'll need them for the day of the wedding too.  I've heard it can get kind of pricey..........

            We had a group of 22. Along with all of the taxi's there are larger vans waiting there to pick people up. We told them we had 22 people and needed 3 vans. They were ready for us in less than 5 minutes. It was so simple and costs about $20 each taxi (Our hotel was in the Marina so the ride was short).

             

            Same thing for transport around town. Our hotel helped out out a lot. We all went in to town multiple times and just called 3 van taxi's to pick us up.

              Well I found a couple different companies..one with a charter bus.  www.puertovallarttours.net/bus-airport-transfers-groups-htm

              This only works for us now that we are having over 30 people come in around the same time on all different flights.  The price is $190 but it breaks down to between 7-9 dollars a person depending how many use it. 

               

              Nessa- I think they have vans too.

                I have contacted:

                info@superiortoursvallarta.com

                 

                I'm not sure what the quote is yet, but once they get back with me, I'll be sure to let you know. 

                 

                I looked into the cost of getting everyone from the hotel to the Marina the day of the wedding and picking up everyone and taking back to airport (round-trip) rates.  I'll keep you posted.

                  Nessa- we already got the transport from las caletas.  It is 10 dollars a person.  I didnt think it was that bad so we went with that.  Let me know about the airport though!!

                    Chicago....Here is what I was told.

                     

                    I had a tour today. Anyway, yes, it would be a pleasure to arrange this all for you. As for the prices; We can pick you up at the Marriott and bring you to the Villas, and have a 30/45 minutes max.  groceriestop at walmart or Mega, whichever you prefer (bucerias). If we pick you up at noon, you will arrive by that more or less at 1pm at the villa. The cost of this transfer will  be 95 US. The transfer will be in a comfortable, 10 passenger Van, which you will  need because of the luggage. As for the transfer for the way back to the airport, you will either need 2 Vans or one big bus (not sure if a bus can reach the property, I do not know the place, but will check it out) , as 13 people plus luggage do not fit in the Van.  The cost is the same: 190US.

                      Please let me know if you want to make a reservation, I only need a 50US deposit by paypal to hold you the Vans or the bus and the Van, and the balance can be paid cash at the first transfer.

                      Chicago.....

                       

                      Who are you using for your trip to Las Caletas?  The quote I got seems a little high.  It averages out to about $14-15/pp. 

                       

                      We are staying at a private villa in Bucerias, but it's only 10 miles from the airport......I'm wondering if mine is more expensive b/c of the distance?
