Trip from VIM to 5th Ave.

I just google mapped how long it would take to get from VIM to the 5th Ave area. Is it right in saying its a 20 minute drive from the resort?

20 minutes would be pretty accurate. They do have a shuttle and recent information seems to suggest it would cost you $23 for taxi ride.

It's really pretty at night in Playa, and the pedestrian only streets are a lot of fun.

OT3 is correct about $23. Just so ya know, it's $23 one way, but that can be for up to 4 people. The hotel shuttle is $17/pp rt, but you're on their schedule.

Thanks for the response OldTraveller =) Do these shuttles run on a regular basis from the resorts? Like on a hourly basis?

Nope, not from the VIM they don't. I believe the VIM runs twice a day.

Each individual resort may have or not have a shuttle into Playa. The VIM does have a shuttle. It would be a nice idea to have a shuttle run between the resorts and then into Playa and then back again. Taxis give you the most flexibity, and they are available in Playa for your return trip 24/7 and are all over the place.
