Bus from airport to Old Puerto Vallarta?

I've taken the public bus a time or two from the bus terminal to downtown PV (the old section).

But I can't remember the bus number(s). Can anyone help me out?

If I remember correctly, the same buses make a stop along the airport (though I've never done that.)

Can you confirm that?
Thanks for any help

How to get to Cave of Swallows & Half Moon Lagoon - San Luis Potosi

Hello,

We're travelling in Mexico at the moment and have been told about some amazing places in San Luis Potosi state - however we're backpacking so reliant on public transport. Can anyone give us any tips on how to get to these places, or where we can find more information?

  • Cave of Swallows (El sotano de las golondrinas)

  • Half Moon lagoon (laguna media luna)

Time isn't an issue really, but we'll be arriving end January 2015. We'll most likely be coming from San Luis Potosi town and will be…

I want to drive to San Jose del Cabo/Cabo San Lucas from the US and stay there for 6 months to a year. Bad idea?

Hi folks. I think the subject says it all. I want to drive from my current place of residence in Florida, 3,300 miles to Los Cabos, find an apartment to rent there and stay as long as I feel like. Financially, this shouldn't be a problem since my job is done remotely, and as long as I have an internet connection and a decent computer (I'll have to bring my desktop...which as I'm reading about customs could be a headache) I should be fine.

Why do this?

  • I've wanted to live abroad for a while,…

Mexico city to Yucatan (1 month+) trip. Need some help

Hi there,
I'm planning a trip to Mexico in March or May and I would need some help. So far I'm planing on traveling alone for at least parts of the way. I'm mostly interested in ancient aspect of Mexico, such as visiting ancient sites of Mayas, Aztecs, Toltecs, and hopefully Olecs. But I'm also interested to experience Mexico as a whole, to feel how's it like there, how local people live in some cities and villages.

My plan is to fly in to Mexico city and spend around 5 days there, during which…

Adult Topless Resort Recommendations (for Couple in their 20s)

Alright so my girlfriend and I are looking for some well-deserved R&R so we’re looking for an adults only topless (or possibly clothing optional) resort. We’ve done a little searching and realize we could use some advice from people who have been to some of these places. We have a few requirements:

  1. A good party vibe. We both like to go out for drinks and dance and stuff so having a good atmosphere for going out in the evenings is a must. We would need a good club somewhere on the resort…

Cuevas de Santa Rita – Beautiful Caves on the Road Less Travelled

I'm writing on behalf of12 students from the College of the Atlantic who are in the Yucatan for a 12 week cultural immersion. Through our explorations of the Yucatan we have been all over the state and seen many gorgeous sites, but last week we went subterranean in the caves at Santa Rita, and it was far and away the most staggeringly beautiful and rich experience of the trip. Why? Because to enter the caves is to descend into the "inframundo" a realm extremely important in the Mayan cosmovision…

One way airline tickets landing at a Mexican international airport-

"Article 86. A foreigner whose admission is denied by the Institute as a result of
not complying with the requirements established in Article 37 of this Law must
leave Mexico to the expense of the company that transported him or her,
notwithstanding the corresponding sanctions under this Law."

The new Mexican Immigration Law is clear on this subject and a few posters thought is was not true.
