This one? http://www.pvpulse.com/en/info/downtown-bus-route
Am I looking at the map correctly to think that the pier is the #2 stop, and Krystal would be the #4?
On the way back: #42 and #43?
We've got twin 3YOs, so a 1/2 mile walk after a day playing probably wouldn't go well. Or I'd be carrying 60+ pounds a half a mile...
Do they stop at every stop, or is it necessary to signal the driver? It is pesos only, or will they accept greenbacks?
Thanks for the tip!
The map you referenced does show the bus stops that the typical rider would use between the port and all points to its southern terminus. The bus stop "numbers" on the map are for your visual reference only. The actual bus stops do not have numbers on them and you will not find a printed map anywhere that duplicates the information on that web site.
City buses in your home town likely have a major route indicator above or across the top of the windshield. Vallarta buses do too but they indicate the northern route terminus. The "centro" & "tunel" markers are often small signs located at the top or bottom of the windshield. Additionally, you will see significant destinations painted on the windshield such as "hotel zone", "sheraton" "walmart", "sams" and other hotels/shopping centers. I am saying this here for those that may be looking for bus information in the future.
- Yes, they do take USD's. No, they do not stop at every stop. There is a buzzer button located near the rear exit. Either get up and approach the from door or push the buzzer shortly after passing the Soriana grocery store. It is protocol for families with small children to be seated at the front of the bus.
Get on at the bus stop referenced as number 2 (outside the port property entrance) and get off at the stop for the night club Christine (stop #4), Christine is a club located on Krystal's front lawn.
Getting back should depend on where you are on the Krystal property. It is a really big property and the distance to stop #42 is roughly 1,600 feet from the pool (and an additional 1,200 feet from the port bus stop to the round port building) while the distance to the round port building is roughly 2,600 feet from the pool via the beach.
