We are new visitors to la manzanilla from Alberta Can arriving Feb to PVR, we are inquiring if there is a close and reasonable hotel close to bus depot that people recommend and what bus is recommended when travelling to La Manzanillo. Thanks!!
We flew into PVR from Saskatoon last Sunday. Stayed at the Flamingo Vallarta Marina Sunday night. Around $100cdn. Room was just ok. Best part was the location. Right on the Marina. Lots of great bars and restaurants. The next day we took the 1:00 Primera Plus bus to Melaque. 5hrs. Then taxi to La Manz. Iíd recommend Gravol for the bud trip if you get motion sickness. We booked our PP tickets through BookaWay. Our bus was full. You should reserve. Or taxi to the bus depot when you arrive in PVR and get a bus ticket for the next day. Good luck!
I favour taking a taxi (walk across the pedestrian walkway over the hiway at the airport cost approx 200 pesos) to Posada de Roger on Basilio Badillo (street) in the 'old town" of PV (sports bar and many great restaurants in area).
There is a secondary (parada de autocamiones) bus depot on the next street (Venustiano Carranza (street) (3 blocks from Posada de Roger)). The Primera buses stop there on their way south on Hiway 200. If you check out Google Maps - streetview currently, you will see a Primera Plus bus parked outside the depot.
Posada de Roger is a favourite overnight stay and is often booked. Last trip (November) I stayed at the Porto Allegro Hotel at 117 Hidalgo (street) and, while it is a bit further from the "parada de autocamiones" it is now on my preferred overnighter locations in PV.
there are many reasonable hotels in PV, dont have to pay 100, check out booking.com... will show distance to airport or bus station... many for 40 to 50 a nite which are very good. I stayed at Hotel Rosita last time , but usually stay in zona romantica... Everywhere has been good really, except for the one for 300 pesos, a little sketchy
I used to stay at the Hotel Posada de Roger until the southbound stop was eliminated. Now, wherever you stay, you have to taxi north to the main bus terminal. I buy my ticket online with the INAPAM discount. The 3:00 trip is an hour shorter than the 1:00 trip.
