Share transportation 7/25 - August 1 Tours and/airport

There are 4 of us. Two adults and two kids that will be arriving on July 25th and going to Villa Del Palmar. We stay till 8/1 and have activites planned with Vallarta Adventures.

I was wondering if anyone will be there the same time that might want to share costs of transportation and I hear a good way to share "picture costs" on tours.

Here is what we are doing and would be willing to maybe look at splitting some costs:

Airport Transportation to Villa Del Palmar and area

vallarta Adventure Tours

Marietas

Outdoor Adventure (this is the one I got an idea of splitting the $125.00 fee for the pictures)

Las Caletas

Jeep Tour

Dolphin Swim Adventure

If you are interested, please respond or send me a PM and we can see if our dates match up.

bgsnmky,

The yellow city taxis are small and will hold your family of four but that's it, there will be no room for other passengers.

And an airport taxi/van won't have much extra room with a party of four and luggage.

There are a few vans around, but the majority of the taxis are small Nissans which hold a maximum of 4 passengers.

And taxis are very reasonable compared to what you'd pay in the US.

If you are looking for an economical way to get to Vallarta Adventures, you can take the ATM bus from in front of WalMart. I think it is around 12 Pesos or so per person, each way and kids are sometimes less.

I would do that instead of trying to coordinate transport with other people online as goodness knows where they are staying/if they are late? etc.

Not worth missing a tour because some people are late to meet you...etc.

The photo thing, you can usually arrange with someone when you are on the actual tour.

And, as mentioned, just grab a taxi from the airport, even if you get a Suburban the price is generally twice the price of the taxi, so you are back where you started from.

Have a great time in Vallarta! Be sure to check out the Mall, Plaza Caracaol across the street from your hotel. Lots of great little shops inside, plus a big grocery store (Soriana) where you can buy food, snacks, booze, pop, you name it, even shoes and clothes and anything you forget to pack, plus they have a food court upstairs, a movie theater, arcade, casino and more.....

Have a great time!

Thanks for the suggestions.....

Sounds like the best idea to just taxi it...

The dividing of the pictures is reawlly what I want to do!
