Transportation to San Pancho from Puerto Vallarta

Four of us will be staying in San Pancho for 9 days in October/2008. The majority of the time will be spent chilling at the Villa with a couple of site seeing trips thrown in, maybe one day back into PV.

What is the best way to get from the PV airport to San Pancho? Do we need a rental car for the entire 9 days? Does San Pancho have car rentals if we took a bus from PV and only wanted to rent a car for a couple of days?

Thanks in advance.

Hi: The most flexible way to visit San Pancho is with a car. There is no rental agency in San Pancho, but there is one 3 miles south in Sayulita. If you take a taxi out to SP from the airport it's around $75 one way, so a car gets more reasonable. You could take a bus from in front of the airport to the intersection of Hwy 200 and SP but it is about 1 mile walk into town from there (a long way with luggage.) If the villa you have rented is very close to the puebla than you wouldn't need a car except for when you want to go site seeing (and you could rent a taxi for the day), but many of the villas are about 1/2 mile from the puebla on cobblestoned streets without lights in many cases, so it's a tricky walk to go out for dinner. we always recommend a car to our guests, and people seem to be happy to have one.
