Transportation and Travel Items


Flying to San Francisco / San Pancho Nayarit Mexico

The easiest way to get to San Pancho aka San Francisco is to fly into Puerto Vallarta, a major Mexican International Airport located less than an hour to the south of town. Most major airlines service this busy tourist destination and Mexican fishing port.

Transportation from Puerto Vallarta Airport

Each town along the Riviera Nayarit has their own “taxi service”, often a white van that parks in the far pickup lane at the airport. This is by far the cheapest, and depending on timing, the fastest way to get to town. These vans run between town and the airport 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

You can also rent a car at the Puerto Vallarta airport.  If you chose to take the local taxi, or hire a single taxi to town, you can also rent cars in town.

Driving to San Pancho / San Francisco

If you have a car and are driving to San Pancho, then you will be on the MEX200 coastal highway, which starts near the top of the Riviera Nayarit around San Blas, and follows the coast all the way down to Guatemala.

Since the 2010 rainy season washed out the bridge to town, several improvements have been made. Not only is there a new bridge int otown, but the main street rough cobblestones have been replaced with a smooth concrete surface designed to last for many years. Since the street is relatively new, no topes have been installed, yet!

Getting Around San Pancho / San Francisco

The town is small enough to walk everywhere. Most of the side streets to the north are cobble stone, with those to the south more often still gravel or dirt. Where there is cobblestone, there are sidewalks. Nothing seems to be more then 20-30 minutes away, and that is if you want to go clear from one side to the other of town.

Bicycling is another great way to get around, and shortens your commute times to less than 5 minutes to anywhere. You can actually move faster in town on a bike then in a car.

Side Trips from Town

Drive your car, your airport rental, a local rental car, a local taxi or a tour services to get where you need to go. Or walk out and catch the bus. They get you anywhere you need to go for literally pesos.
