Malecon in Puerto Vallarta

Recommended Posts

What is the easiest way to get to and from the Malecon from the ship? Walking distance? Have heard lots to do there.

Easiest would be a taxi from the cruise port.  Slightly more complex would be to walk a short distance out of the port and catch a regular taxi there.  Do set the fare in advance, will be less than cabs in port.  Cheaper yet would be a bus into town.  It is not walkable

Also get the total price.  Last April, we were given a price that was what we were used to (we've been to PV at least once a years for over 25 years on both cruise and land vacations) and as we were getting out of the cab, we were told the price was per person.  A new scam that we hadn't encountered before.

 

Cheers.  We are going in Jan on same cruise.  You will love it.

The white taxis inside the port area charge per person.

If you walk outside the port to near the gas station on the corner and get a yellow taxi there the price will be for the whole group.

Always discuss price before getting into the car.

We were just there...we took the taxi van from the port and were charged $4pp.  When we were ready to return to the ship, plenty of taxis lined up at all the cross streets that meet the Malecon.  We paid $10 total for the ride, being let off inside the port and right near the terminal building.

msmayor's charges sound right to me.  I should have been more clear in my previous post.

 

1.  We have been traveling to PV at least once a year since the early 80's on both land and sea vacations.   

2.  We always ask prices before we get into a cab in Mexico.

3.  We did ask and were given an expected price based on our experience.

4.  As we were getting out of the cab, we were told the agreed upon price was per person.  That was a new twist for us and rather than make an issue, I paid him the extra $5 or 6 and filed it away for the future .

 

Cheers
