|There is one central bus station that houses the major long range bus companies that service Puerto Vallarta.
The North bus station is near the airport behind the new Corona Cerveza complex. You can easily get there via taxi, or you can take an Ixtapa or Las Juntas bus. If you take the bus, make sure the driver knows you are going to the bus station, otherwise he will not turn. Tell the driver "Central de Camiones, por favor".
Six major bus companies service Puerto Vallarta. These are Futura, Primera Plus, Pacifico, ETN, Elite, and TNS. Some of the cities you may bus to from Puerto Vallarta are; Guadalajara, Mexico D.F., Acapulco, Manzanillo, Melaque, Tijuana, Mazatlan and Leon.
You can purchase tickets directly at the bus station. Some bus companies sell tickets via the internet.
