There are over ten different rental car locations around town so that should also not be a problem.

Is it worthwhile renting a car while visiting Puerto Vallarta?

Despite Puerto Vallarta being a very walkable city, it is still worthwhile getting car rentals in Puerto Vallarta because your rental car gives you an element of flexibility and convenience that you just don’t get with public transport. Also, it wouldn’t be feasible to walk around town as you visit the main attractions in the city because some of them are quite far apart. With a car rental, you can also visit some of the attractions in neighboring cities, including the famous Santuario de Crocodiles El Cora and The Bucerias Art Walk, which are just under an hour’s drive from the Puerto Vallarta city center. The best part about car rentals is that it is very easy to get a cheap car rental in Puerto Vallarta as you can get any type of rental car you would want including, passenger van rentals, electric car rentals and even luxury car rentals in Puerto Vallarta.

What different driving laws should I keep in mind while driving in Puerto Vallarta?

Before getting car rentals in Puerto Vallarta, it is your responsibility to find out some of the unique driving laws in the city to avoid getting into any sort of trouble with the local authorities. For starters, it is important to note that speeding is the easiest way to get a ticket. Speed limits around Puerto Vallarta are posted in kilometers per hour rather than miles per hour, so it is important to note that to avoid confusion. Most roads in Puerto Vallarta are fitted with topes which are small speed bumps that are widely employed around town to limit speeding and keep the pedestrians safe. In case of any doubt, you can always check with the Jalisco DMV to avoid getting in trouble.

What kind of driver’s license do you need to rent a car in Puerto Vallarta?

To get rental cars in Puerto Vallarta, you will need to provide a valid driver’s license with a photo ID. The license shouldn’t be expiring any time before the end of the rental agreement; otherwise, you will not be able to get the car. Also, a credit card would be necessary, and it has to be from a major company such as Visa or Mastercard. There are some agencies that will accept American Express. An international driver’s license isn’t necessary for foreigners, but some rental companies will insist on seeing a valid passport.
