You can take a number of bus carriers from the Guadalajara main bus station (which is in Tlaquepaque) to Puerto Vallarta. The nicer ones (very clean!, only 24 seats per bus, refreshments, 2 movies in transit, etc) are "ETN" and "Primera Plus" and recently have heard good comments about "Futura" also. It's a 4-5 hour ride and costs about $45 USD. I'm sure the first two companies have websites so you can check departure times, etc.

We went ETN a few years ago,it was a 5 hour trip on the neatest bus.They even made us a lunch,sandwich & a drink.It was 250 pesos each way I believe,but that is about 4 years ago.
