Getting Here

We can help arrange transportation to Playa Las Tortugas.  The closest airport is Puerto Vallarta, which is about a 2 hour drive away.

If you prefer to drive yourself, directions are below from the airport.  We prefer to rent from Gecko in Bucerias.  They will arrange transportation from the airport and have a range of new cars available.  Gecko is right along the route from the airport to PLT, so the directions apply.

Driving Directions from the Puerto Vallarta (PVR) International Airport to Playa Las Tortugas:

Your scenic drive north from the P.V. Airport to Playa Las Tortugas is about two hours, leading you through areas of old-growth jungle, coastal hills, typical Mexican towns, to the sandy road that leads here.

As you leave the airport parking lot, turn left leaving the toll booth, go through the intersection, and afterwards bear right instead of returning to the terminal. Follow the sign for COMPOSTELA, which will take you the opposite direction from Puerto Vallarta. Merge onto Highway 200 in the direction of COMPOSTELA (TEPIC and GUADALAJARA). If you find yourself exiting the airport by the shopping center, turn left at the light in front of the shopping center (only with a green arrow), making a U-turn away from Puerto Vallarta. Follow Highway 200 for 84 km to LAS VARAS.

0.0 km/mi Head north from the airport on Highway 200 towards Tepíc and Compostela (away from downtown Puerto Vallarta)

21 km/13.0 mi – four-lane highway becomes major two-lane highway

36 km/22.0 mi – passing by Sayulita

64 km/39.7 mi – two-lane becomes four-lane; passing by Los Ayala, Rincon de Guayabitos and La Peñita de Jaltemba, where there are several stoplights, then the road becomes two-lane again.

84 km/52.2 mi – at LAS VARAS the road once again is four lanes, move into the far right “access” lane for “Zacualpan”. From the far right lane you will turn left at the SECOND stoplight towards Zacualpan and San Blas. VISITORS SOMETIMES MISS THIS TURN. GPS Coordinates for the second stoplight- N21d10.778m, W105d08.180m . Now you’re on the road to Zacualpan and San Blas.

93 km/57.7 mi – watch for speed bumps entering ZACUALPAN; the main road turns left just before the town plaza/church, and so should you. [If you find yourself passing the plaza turn left after the plaza and left again to return to the main road, where you then turn right.] Coordinates of plaza- N21d15.013m, W105d09.892m . Continue on this road past San Isidro (where there are two large speed bumps).

100 km/62.1 mi – bear right at the “Y” towards ATICAMA and SAN BLAS (you are passing by another little “Ixtapa” and there is a speed bump). important note !! When returning towards puerto vallarta from playa las tortugas you must stop at this “y” and yield right-of-way to the vehicles coming out of or entering the town.)

105 km/65.2 mi – watch for a green “Playa Las Tortugas” road sign on the right side, the gravel road to PLT is another 100 yards on the left side of the road. Turn left on to the sandy gravel road.  Coordinates for the turn are – N21d19.796m, W105d11.511m.

It will take approximately 15-20 minutes to reach the property from the turnoff.  If you arrive after dark you may feel as if you’ve gotten lost, but follow this winding gravel road and the signs to the palm groves (about 5.6km), where the road bears right (don’t go straight over the first bridge). After making the right turn you pass over another small bridge and continue straight. Always stay on the main road. Continue another 4 kilometers to the end. We are located 9.8 km (6 miles) from the highway.  Villa Los Sueños is immediately on the left, once you pass through the gates into Playa Las Tortugas.
