Top Tips For Renting a Car in Puerto Vallarta

  • Perhaps the top reason travelers should rent a vehicle during their time in Puerto Vallarta is that there is no better way to see the beautiful coastline. There are many gorgeous beach spots that dot the coastline near Puerto Vallarta and many of them are a quick drive from town. Some of the options include Playa de los Muertos (7 km or 3.4 miles away) and Playa las Gemelas (16 km or 10 miles away).
  • Excited to begin your trip in Puerto Vallarta? You can pick up your rental car as soon as you arrive. For travelers with flights to Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport, the rental car counters can be found in both the National and International Arrivals Halls.
  • Francisco Medina Ascencio is the main road in Puerto Vallarta and is often a key part of any itinerary. It is a very large road with four lanes of traffic on each side and can be a bit confusing for first time drivers. For instance, to take a left turn off the road you must exit onto one of the parallel running access roads and from there you can exit onto other streets.
  • Rush hour in Puerto Vallarta, like in many cities in Mexico, is no joke. In general, the morning rush hour goes from 7:00 a.m. and lasts until 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. As for the afternoon and evening peak, it starts at around 5:00 p.m. and finishes up at around 7:00 p.m. Highway 200, one of the main thoroughfares in Puerto Vallarta, experiences the bulk of the city’s congestion and should be avoided during peak hours.
