Note that the arrival area is plagued by timeshare hucksters as you come out from customs.  They will offer to arrange a cab for you and try to rope you into a timeshare sales presentation.  After you clear customs, walk quickly through the next room - the one housing the hucksters - continue walking past the rope-line.  Now look for the official taxi kiosk out in the main airport atrium.  You purchase your taxi trip here.  All other offers of cab rides you will receive between customs and the kiosk will be from timeshare hucksters.  Ignore every one of them.  The bad experience of those taken in can ruin one's first hours in PVR, and that would be a shame. Or hire private transportation.

If you've packed lightly you can take the city buses into town. Turn left as you come out of the building and go towards the main road.  The bus stop is to your left, under the pedestrian overpass (1/4 block from the airport door), next to the airport terminal building.  Wait for a bus (5 minutes or so) marked "Centro" or "Zona Romantica" (but NOT marked Pitillal or Bobadilla), wave it down, pay your M$10.00 pesos, and enjoy the ride. The bus stops all throughout the town. It takes about 20 to 30 minutes for the bus to get to its farthest southerly stop. You've just saved US$20 ($250 pesos)! You don't need exact change for the bus. Drivers will make change for bills $50.00 pesos & smaller.  If going to the main bus station (or a bus to Nuevo Vallarta, Bucerias, and anywhere north along Hwy 200) go over the pedestrian bridge to the other side.  The other stop is under the bridge at the opposite side.  Get off at Km 9 or 9.5 which is front of the Corona building and walk up two or three blocks along Las Palmas (one of the roads beside the building) past the building to get there.  Some of the of the buses such as the "Ixtapa" or "Central Autobuses" buses may make a turn at the Coronas building and go by the bus station.  Ask the driver when getting on.
