Mexico by bus.

« on: May 09 2008 12:05:00 »

I am headed to mainland Mexico for a few months in the fall.  We are starting our trip in Sayulita to meet some friends for about a week and intend on traveling south from there, hoping to do it as cheap as possible.  I was wondering how accessible it is to travel by bus and roughly what the cost would be.  I have spent some time around Sayulita / Punta de Mita but have never been south of Puerto Vallarta.  I am also planning on bringing a board (5'6") if it is not too difficult.  Any information, knowledge, or suggestions would be appreciated.

I was in PV and took a bus to Sayulita. I believe it was about 7 bucks, and they did accommodate my board. However, I've heard that the prices have been going up, and the board accomm have been going down. But the buses are abundant, so I think you'll do okay...however, you will probably spend more time than you want waiting, stopping, and standing... Good luck!

You ride a 5'6"? Goodluck getting into powerful mex waves on a 5'6". Anyways, you can get anywhere in mexico by bus. We used to do it all the time leaving from texas. Its cheap and they run fairly frequent. I recomend doing the long travels at night (save on lodging and more time to surf). Bus from PV down to La Ticla was about 8 hours or so if I remember right. PV was I wanna say 4 hours from Guad by bus. Ticla was around 6 hours from Guad by bus with a bus change in Tecoman. Its been awhile so Im not to sure. They'll store your boards, just make sure you have a really padded travel bag cause they just throw them in there. Need info, email me. Goodluck
