Getting Here and Around

Aeropuerto Internacional Playa de Oro is 32 km (20 mi), or 40 minutes, north of town. Taxis from the airport charge about $40; the shared vans that run to the major resorts are less expensive. First-class and executive-class buses connect Manzanillo's Central Nueva station with other Pacific Coast cities, Guadalajara, and Mexico City.

Having a car is a plus, since the city is extremely spread out. Driving from Guadalajara is a snap on the excellent four-lane toll road (54D), though not much faster than the scenic backcountry route on Highway 80 (via Barra). The trip from Puerto Vallarta on Highway 200 is slightly rough in patches but also really scenic.

Cabs are unmetered and are easy to hail on the streets. Agree on a price beforehand. The minimum fare is a little less than $2.
