Instead, you pay by zones, Puerto Vallarta airport taxi fares are slightly above average due to the fees the federal government charges them to get licensed and work outside the airport. You can buy a taxi coupon near the terminal exit for a regular sedan or private minivan. Tips are not required unless you feel you want to.
