Airports in Puerto Vallarta
Puerto Vallarta is a beautiful Mexican city and popular vacation hub, but because it is relatively small, it can be hard to find major airports in or around the area. Orbitz.com is one convenient way to find flights to Vallarta provided by numerous major airlines. Puerto Vallarta Gustavo Diaz Ordaz Airport (PVR) is the primary airport in the area, and it is located just six miles north of Puerto Vallarta, nestled on Mexico's beautiful west coast. Airlines flying into the airport include US Airways, Delta, United, American Airlines, Virgin America, and Aeromexico.
Transportation From Puerto Vallarta Gustavo Diaz Ordaz Airport
The primary means of transportation leaving the airport include a shuttle, which goes to several nearby hotels, and taxi. Car rentals are also popular. Finding the right rental vehicle is easy with Orbitz.com, because you can compare prices.
Weather in Puerto Vallarta
Vallarta has a typical climate for a tropical region, with temperatures ranging from 80 degrees Fahrenheit during January and December and highs of 90 degrees Fahrenheit during summer months. Water temperatures rarely dip below 70 degrees Fahrenheit, so booking a discount flight to Vallarta during the off season makes perfect sense. Bring plenty of sunscreen, and plan to wear swimsuits, shorts, and tanks all year round.
Puerto Vallarta's Major Attractions
Puerto Vallarta is home to some of the most beautiful beaches on the planet, so guests spend their days relaxing or strolling on the white sand. Other things to do include whale watching, sailing, fishing, and scuba diving. The city also has a bustling nightlife. Since temperatures stay tropical in every season, you can find guests catching flights to Vallarta all year round to beat the cold weather up north.
