We did book our own excursion with Aquaventuras. Loved it. We had the water park practically to our selves. The dolphin swim was awesome. We hired a taxi driver for the day and he took us to see crocodiles, historic landmarks, shopping, to the El Dorado on the beach for drinks and then La Longosta Feliz. (the happy lobster) All of it was very good! Read Less

We were surprised to see a Walmart and Sams Club as we docked. It was funny but came in handy. It just so happened that my mother-in-law got sunburned and she was looking for some Alera Vera, of course, the peddlers waiting for the tourist to get off the boat were trying to upcharge. We just made a little walk across the street to get what we needed at low prices. We were also able to grab a couple souvenirs for cheap. Read Less

Not our first trip to Peurto Vallarta, so jumped on the local bus to "Centro" and stood most of the way - full of locals. Just hang on tight !!! You must pay in pesos, but very cheap ride for 8 kilometers - 9 pesos each, about 50 cents. Walked around old town, bought shoes at local Mexican shoe store (very reasonable price), walked around Malecon, had Pacifico cervesa and marlin tacos at a beachfront restaurant on the sand. Ride back very simple, because there is a Walmart across the road from the ship terminal and you just have to read the sighns on the bus windshield to know where they are going. Read Less

Big touristy destination with lots of beaches. We walked into town and back. Worth the walk although much is just along a busy main street.

With scores of others, passengers and crew, we took a self-guided walking tour to Walmart, which was just as exciting as you'd expect it to be.

We booked a day at private beach but I decided I wanted to stay to see the city and shops near the boat. I got some of the best deals every st a nearby mall.

Always love PV! Stayed away from the touristy parts and took a cab into Old Town. There's a cab service at the port that is $6 per person and they fill up a van before they leave. Very cheap way to travel the city.

I rate it this way simply because I have been here many times. For cruisers, there is a Walmart directly across from the ship so easy to get some new things such as toothpast or whatnot. This part of town is not the best for walking and scenery but the local bus is very cheap and takes just minutes to get to the more historic downtown. I would not recommend a taxi because in the port are they will over charge about 400%; but if a taxi is your style, walk down the street a bit, then you will be able to negotiate a more decent price.

Took cab downtown to the beginning of the Malecon. Walked the Malecon and bought some artwork. Had lunch and took cab back to ship. Dropped off art in cabin and walked across the street to Walmart to pick up a few essentials.

Took a cab to Maelcon (the boardwalk) where we walked along the beach and viewed the sand sculptures, shopped, and enjoyed a great lunch with friends!

Wish I’d taken an organised tour - I walked for 13kms and didn’t see much of interest. People who swam with the sea lions and saw the Rhythm of the Night show loved their tours.

Nice beaches. Had very bad service experience from Princess, but the port itself was very nice.
