Getting there & around
The little bus station (cnr Sinaloa & Canalizo) is served by Norte de Sonora and Estrella Blanca 2nd-class buses. For many destinations to the south and east it may be quicker to go to Tepic first. For Mazatlán, transfer in Tepic. Daily departures include the following:
Guadalajara (M$180, 5hr, 1 at 7am)
Puerto Vallarta (M$106, 3½hr, 4 at 7:30am, 10am, 1:30pm & 4:30pm)
Santiago Ixcuintla (M$35, 1hr, 2 at noon and 5pm)
Tepic (M$42, 1hr, hourly 6am-8pm)
Second-class buses also depart from the corner of Sinaloa and Paredes several times a day, serving all the villages and beaches on Bahía de Matanchén.
Taxis will take you around town and to nearby beaches – a good option with two or more people. Rent bicycles from Wala Wala for M$15/70 per hour/day or Stoner’s Surf Camp for M$70 per day.
