Location
Puerto Vallarta is situated on the Pacific coast of Mexico in the northwest corner of the state of Jalisco.

Geography
Puerto Vallarta is a quaint, colonial seaside village encircled by rugged, tropical Sierra Madre mountains to the east and fronted by the Bay of Banderas, Mexico's largest natural bay. The center of town is divided by the Cuale River.

Climate
January - April Average High 86 / low 63 May - December Average High 92 / low 70 Rainy Season: Late June through September, mainly afternoon showers.

Arrival
The Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport located four miles north of downtown (centro). There are frequent taxi or van transfers from the airport at reasonable rates. Pay at the taxi booth and they'll assign you to a taxi/van that will take you to your destination.
Proof of citizenship is necessary to cross the border into Mexico. Either a current passport, birth certificate or voter's registration will suffice. Upon arrival, visitors are given a Tourist Card which must be turned in upon departure at the airport. At that time, a departure tax is charged and payable in U.S. dollars or Mexican pesos. Some airlines now include this tax when ticketing, but check ahead to make sure.
Non-US citizens need to check with a Mexican consulate for possible visa requirements.

Currency
Pesos, although U.S. dollars are widely accepted in businesses throughout town. Major credit cards are also accepted in most establishments.

Population
Puerto Vallarta is home to 350,000 residents and attracts more than 2 million visitors annually.

Water
Our water authority, Seapal, has received certification for four consecutive years ensuring that our water is clean for human consumption, but we still recommend drinking only bottled water, which is provided for Villa Suzannah. Bottled water is sold in town. Microdine is sold to purify vegetable and salad greens.

Taxis
Puerto Vallarta has more than 1,000 taxis available around town. The union has preset tariffs for travel rather than meters. Fare within the Centro zone, downtown, is only a few dollars. Hotels often post the rates to popular destinations, but it is always a good idea to ask about the cost before you travel. Also, you are not expected to tip the drivers.

Buses
Buses will take you from one end of town to the other, or anywhere in-between for only $4.5 to $5 pesos. Look at the approaching windshields for the buses' destinations, or ask someone. Push the button marked "timbre" to signal the driver to stop.
