Booking a taxi

Just got home about 16 hours ago from Puerto Vallarta. We have used this website for transportation for several years and will continue to do so. Nice people, quality vehicles and cold bottles of water when you arrive. We will see you in Nov.

Book your taxi here

Tom and I reserved our taxi through this website and were very happy with their services. They had our reservation waiting for us and were very professional. It was so nice not to have to hassle with finding someone once we arrived in PVR. We would highly recommend them!

My niece and nephew (especially our nephew) is a very picky eater and he always found something to eat there. They have al...

We tried to get Andres to be our "surfer dude " but no luck. I have to say of the meals we ate off property, my favorite was Teatro Limon. The ...

Tom and I used this service last Nov. and again March 14th and highly recommend it. We had an almost brand new Malibu LT that was very nice and clean with a very nice driver. Much roomier than the regular taxis.

I can only comment on the beach by the GCP but it is very nice and they do have an area roped off for swimming. They have a person that rakes the sand in front of the resort every day. We spent a lot of family time on the beach in Nov. when we went with the entire family. We go for at least 2 walks ...

They have all menu dining, 24 hour room service, top shelf liquor as well as the ability to go next door to the family all inclusive and use their facil...
