Puerto Vallarta is highly popular as a vacation destination and is well served by a variety of airlines operating through most air travel hubs in the United States. Locating discount flights from Puerto Vallarta is fairly easy with Orbitz.com, which presents you with a list of flights departing from Puerto Vallarta Gustavo Diaz Ordaz Airport. This is the only airport operating in the city and is located at AP 44A, Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico, about 2.8 miles from the city. Major airlines flying into the airport include American Airlines, Continental Airlines, Delta Airlines and Aeromexico.
The parking facilities at the airport are available at a starting rate of about $1.90 per hour and rise to a cost of approximately $28.65 for the first day, $18 the second day and $7.20 each day thereafter. Losing the ticket for your parked car will incur an extra fee of $17.
Taxi fares are federally regulated. The rates are applied per vehicle rather than per person, and each taxi is capable of holding up to three passengers. The fares are also set by travel zones. The 5- to 10-minute trip from the downtown area costs about $18. Larger groups need to find available shuttle vans, which may cost about twice as much as taking a taxi. Local bus service is also available and costs about $0.55.
Food is available at the airport to provide travelers with a snack or meal before they board their flights from Vallarta. Snacks are available from the Coffee Cafe and Starbucks, while more hearty meals can be purchased at the Henry J Bean's Bar & Grill or the Carl's Jr. located in the airport food service area.
