Host City Information
Puerto Vallarta is an exciting international port city, and travelers from outside Mexico should carry a valid passport at all times. Be sure that your passport will be valid for at least six months after the conference before flying.

When exiting the Puerto Vallarta airport after baggage claim and Customs, you will enter a corridor in which timeshare vendors will attempt to offer you a ride and a drink. Feel free to accept the drink, but walk past them to the Ground Transportation area and check in with the taxi stand.
