Traffic Information

If arriving at Puerto Vallarta Airport, it will take you around 14 minutes to drive into the center of Puerto Vallarta. If traffic is heavy, you can avoid congestion via the Calle Prisciliano Sánchez or the Calle Politécnico Nacional without adding any time or distance. Our Puerto Vallarta / Velas Hotel branch is around 4 miles and 15 minutes from the center via the Avendia Francisco Medina Ascencio. Our Puerto Vallarta Grand Velas branch, meanwhile, is around 10 miles and 25 minutes from Puerto Vallarta town center via Highway 200 Tepic Puerto Vallarta. On-street parking can be scarce in Puerto Vallarta and the streets can be narrow, so do leave yourself a bit of time to find a space and take care parking. Alternatively, use one of the public parking lots the city has recently built around the main attractions to remedy this problem. When driving further afield Federal Highway 200 will take you to destinations to the north or south while Highway 15 will take you east to places like Guadalajara.

Sixt Tips

Puerto Vallarta features a beautiful bay, fabulous beaches, lush forests and pretty waterfalls. It has lots of upscale hotels, restaurants and boutiques for those who want to enjoy a luxurious visit but it also has much to offer the budget traveler. The Malecon is a newly refurbished boardwalk, which provides a lovely walk along the oceanfront, where you will often find street artists performing. If you want to get away from the international tourist area, walk south across the River Cuale to the Old Town, also called the Zona Romantica. Here you will enjoy a more traditional atmosphere.
