Airport pick-up can be arranged with advanced notice. Taxis are readily available at the Puerto Vallarta airport and rates are approximately $700–1,000 MX$ ($50-80 USD). If you want more freedom to explore the surrounding towns, you may want to consider renting a car. Most major car rental companies are located at or near the Puerto Vallarta airport, and it’s best to make reservations in advance.


The Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR) is located 40 km (25 miles) south of San Pancho and Hotel Cielo Rojo. The drive along the coast will take about 30 minutes. After leaving the airport property, you’ll need to make a right turn, BUT you MUST get into the left-hand lane immediately in order to safely do a U-Turn and go north on Hwy. 200 (towards Tepic). After driving approximately 35 km (22 miles), you will see the San Francisco (San Pancho) sign. The town entrance is on the left. To turn left and enter the town, you’ll need to pull off into the right shoulder and wait until both lanes of traffic are clear before turning left. In Mexico, a blinking left turn signal on the highway means “it’s okay to pass.”

Hotel Cielo Rojo is located at Calle Asia #6. Follow the red signs on the street corners.
