Marival - Things within walking distance?

Just wondering if there is anything within walking distance from the Marival (all-inclusive resort, not residence)?

A mall? Starbucks? Grocery store?

We plan on doing a few excursions, but just checking on things within walking distance.

Thank you. :)

Bus to PVR... is located down the street,south of Marival (desk will tell you ) on opposite side.. the Bus Runs NORTH... almost up to the Riu Palace..at the circle it goes up onto the freeway and then South to PVR... If you Tell Driver you want off at Bucerias he should stop there, or Carry on to PVR. Mega store is across the freeway there.. You would have to grab another bus going North or just walk right into the Market area...

Comeing Back... from Bucerias.. You would have to take a bus... Past the Paradise exit to Nuevo..and then get the NUEVO Bus (RIUs printed on the windows).so a little difficult.

comeing back from PVR.. you get to the Walmart..and get the Nuevo Bus. with Riu.Nuevo on the windows.

From the walmart going Both way.. You pay more and get the El Centro Bus.

From what you wrote it sounds like we can get a bus just outside of the resort and take it all the way into PV. Is this correct? Also, if it is correct does it go right into El Centro?

Coming back we would need to change buses at the Walmart by the airport and catch nuevo bus. Am I understanding this correctly? Sounds easy enough.

Thanks for the info. I've been reading quite a bit on the forum and you help a lot of travellers feel at ease with their journey.
