"south of rio cuale" Puerto Vallarta Favorite Tip by rkearns

Puerto Vallarta General: 79 reviews and 91 photos

Favorite thing: yeah you can exchange them at the exchange booths on the street in PV.. i think it's more expensive at the airport, but why not just use your atm card? you may get a better rate just using that than exchanging money. imo, the best place to stay is south of the rio cuale. (zona romantica) you will find everything you need there, including internet cafe's and exchange counters, supermarkets, restaurants, the beach (which is quite dirty and overloaded with mexican tourists) ... well, and tourists from everywhere, depending on the time of year. you will be bugged on the minute to buy souvenirs. so expect that. anyway, i would avoid the airport. it's crazy when you step out of baggage claim. pteople attack you with "taxi, cheaper". just walk on through. there is a bus line just to the left of the entrance that you can get on that costs something like 70 cents. the blue one going to "centro" i believe. maybe someone can correct me on that..
