Airports in Puerto Vallarta

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.
