KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Nuevo Vallarta

  • With plenty of beaches and parks to explore, Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit, Mexico, is well worth visiting. Consider getting Nuevo Vallarta car rentals to experience the convenience of driving across the city and other nearby destinations to experience the diverse culture, shopping, and dining. While the city boasts great public transportation, buses ply specific routes. Therefore, you can do very little by relying on them. But with car rentals in Nuevo Vallarta, you can conveniently drive to Aquaventuras Park, Riviera Farmers Market, Nuevo Vallarta Beach, Dolphin Discovery Puerto Vallarta, Marine Nuevo Vallarta, and Playa Bucerias.
  • Puerto Vallarta Ordaz Airport (PVR) and Tepic Airport (TPQ) serve flights to Nuevo Vallarta, about 7.6 miles and 96.1 miles from the city center, respectively. Travelers landing at PVR can find car rental desks in the terminal building in the Arrivals area across from the baggage claim. If you opt to land at TPQ, the car rental counters are inside the terminal building near the baggage claim area. Getting car rentals in Nuevo Vallarta at the airport lets you commence exploring the city as soon as you land. You’ll find Mas by Mex, MEXRENTACAR, Dollar, National, Budget, and Avis at these airports.
  • As a small city in Mexico, finding narrow roads and tiny streets in Nuevo Vallarta is unsurprising. Nonetheless, driving in the city is manageable. However, you must pay attention to details. The city has several roundabouts. Drive carefully when approaching intersections and roundabouts. Allow adequate space when negotiating corners for clear vision. You will likely encounter jaywalking. Pay keen attention to pedestrians and motorbikes to keep them safe. Furthermore, remain sober since the city implements a zero-tolerance policy on drinking and driving.
  • Many cities in Mexico experience heavy traffic during rush hours, and Nuevo Vallarta is no exception. The traffic in the city is heavy because most residents access the city center with private vehicles. Besides, motorbikes are permitted to use the same lanes as vehicles, leading to them jockeying for position. Rush hours usually last for shorter durations, but the inconveniences are worth escaping. Typically, the city experiences heavy from around 7 am to 9 am and 6 pm to 8 pm. Also, be aware of traffic snarl-ups from 2 pm to 3 pm, as most parents pick up their kids from school.
  • Book your car hire in Nuevo Vallarta at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate hire cars in Nuevo Vallarta are around 205% more expensive than other car types, on average

As a solo traveler, a smaller car enables you to stick to your budget by consuming less gas and requires a smaller parking spot. However, be sure to consider the vehicle's safety features and suitability. If you plan to visit off-road destinations, look for a well-raised vehicle for navigation.

Pay attention to the posted speed limits. Besides saving you from getting into trouble with the authorities, following the speed limits keeps you and other road users safe.

  • Where are the best places to park in Nuevo Vallarta?

    Finding a parking spot for your car rentals in Nuevo Vallarta can be challenging due to limited parking options. Consider booking a Nuevo Vallarta hotel with a parking lot to enjoy free parking on your vacation. Marival Distinct Luxury Residences & World Spa All Inclusive, Krystal Grand Nuevo Vallarta, Paradise Village, Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta & All Inclusive, Splash Inn Nuevo Vallarta & Parque Acuatico, and Marival Emotions Resort & Suites-All Inclusive all offer free parking.

Pros:

Once we got the vehicle we wanted it served it’s purpose

Cons:

We were completely scammed from the minute that we walked into the Hertz office in Mexico. They took advantage of us and it was very sad. Even though our taxes and fees were including the rental price they forced additional taxes and fees which we knew was incorrect. They forced us to get insurance when we wanted to waive it and we had already confirmed that we had insurance with both our auto company and through our credit card before hand. We were also forced to pay for the full tank of gasoline when we have only usedLess than half. The entire experience was very unfortunate and wrong. They also wouldn’t give us the keys to our vehicle until we sat through a seminar on excursions and “” discounts because we got a car rental. We should not have been forced to do that.

I picked this company because they had an airport location; thinking I would not have to shuttle offsite to get the car. That wasn’t the case; I had to take a shuttle to an offsite location. FYI. Also, the $322 weekly rental turned out to be $714 because of the required insurance. Over double the amount we anticipate spending.

I called them up after booking, they didn't have a (or any) car. I expect this is more to do with your systems, but it killed our plans
