Transfer or Taxi from airport to Golden Crown Paradise

I am getting ready to book my vacation package to Golden Crown Paradise and was wondering if anyone knew if the transfers are worth paying for or if a taxi is cheaper since it seems so close to the airport? Transfers that I found cost $26 each way for two of us so roundtrip of $52. I haven't been to Puerto Vallarta in over 20 years and am only used to doing transfers from Cancun to the Mayan Riviera (where the resorts we stay at are over an hour from the airport which is well worth it). Thanks for your help. :)

Hi
take a taxi about 16.00 US to Almost any hotel . Golden Crown included but set price before you leave. Have fun LUVVVVVVVV Golden Crown take it from a 8 time repeater.

Great! Taxi it is. Thanks so much for responding, that really helps. We picked this resort based on all of the wonderful reviews I read. Looking forward to it, just hoping it doesn't rain too much on us. We leave June 27th for 4 nights.

Take the yellow taxi that is just past all the time share sharks ... $16 US to GCP then it is $8 US to get back to the airport. Much cheaper and faster than a transfer.

now another thing to remember too, if you don't have a ton of luggage or have some easy bags you and pull with you... you can take the bridge from the airport over the highway to outside the airport taxes and duties restricted by the taxi companies and get to the GCP for about half what they charge at the airport... there are some people that can live by backpacks and this is what they do, or if they have one piece of luggage between themselves will do this... just some additional food for thought...

enjoy

You guys are awesome! I think we are going to travel light because we heard the snorkeling/scuba diving wasn't that great so we don't think we will bring our gear. So, I think we just might do what you suggested. THANKS!

Sounds great! We will be easy to spot because my husband and his identical twin brother are going. They are both tall Texas boys that drink a ton of beer! :wink:
