It's only a 30 minute plane ride from Guadalahara to PV so we decided to look for low cost airfare and go spend the week on the Pacific Ocean. A lot of people will drive or take the bus to PV, but if you are flexible and peruse the discount airlines, you can find the deals.
We flew AeroMar round trip for $70 US per person. What a deal! There are other discount airlines in Mexico (Volaris, Interjet, VivaAerobus) to choose from or you can take a 5-6 hour bus ride from Guadalajara . The price is only slightly cheaper on the bus. You can read our blog on transportation in Mexico to find out more about how we travel in Mexico.
We did spend time at the beach enjoying the view and sipping our drinks. There are plenty of happy hour specials along the beach usually starting at around 4 pm. If you are a beer drinker, you can get an icy bucket of 6 beers for $100 pesos ($5.40 US). The price varies on the 2 for 1 mixers between $70 and $90 pesos. If you get a margarita, make sure you ask for it "fuerte" (strong).
