Take a regular bus from outside your hotel to either Avenida Francia by the HSBC or to Sam´s/Wal-Mart. Both places are stops for the Bucerias bus. At Sam´s go to the far bus stop closest to VIP´s. There is always a young man there to make sure you get on the right bus.

I am in PV right now :D it is heaven here. We took the bus out to Brucerias- it was easy and cheap. We caught the ATM bus at Walmart. There was a man there yelling out which bus to take. It was a little confusing figuring out where to get off once we got to Brucerias but we we're able to do it ok. We ate at Michel Angels there and it was fantastic. Did a little shopping and caught the bus back without any problems. In fact we haven't had any problems with taking the busses at all- they are very convenient and very cheap. We only used a taxi once and that was after the Rhthyms of the Night because we got back around 11:15 pm. Ok I'm off for another stroll on the Malecon. We fly back tomorrow :( I'll try to write a trip report when I get back.

180 pesos is an issue ? I think 180 pesos directly into the pocket of a local taxi driver is money well spent...plus you get the comforable ride, conversation and local knowledge along the way...but if 180 pesos is financially prohibitive by all means use the buses...they will get you there just fine and are interesting and unique in thier own way...as I said the cabs were just another "option"...sonofdob

I think it's an issue for some people. The little expenses add up quickly, especially if you are using public transportation alot. Anyway, as you say, both options are available and there is a perfect one for all pocketbooks.

Personally, I love the bus, &, the older the better!!
You get to see so many characters on the bus; last time there was a dude playing a bongo drum!
Having said that, taxis are quick & easy, &, also have great characters driving them!

Try both: that's what makes life interesting!! :D
