We recommend everyone to use Uber getting to Sayulita. You may need to walk out of the airport to the pick up area. The price more economic in comparison to the taxi depending on the time of the day. This can take around 45 minutes with little traffic, 90 minutes with heavy traffic.
From Puerto Vallarta Airport by Loca Bus Service:
Bus (Local Bus) is a very low cost option. Leaving the airport arrivals area you can see a foot bridge across the highway. Cross that bridge. When you arrive on the other side of the bridge you should look out for bus stop in front of you. You are looking for a bus that has 'Sayulita' written on the front window. Sit at the front for a more comfortable ride. Sit at the back if you have more luggage. You should be warned. These buses do not have suspension at the back of the bus. The bus is generally busy early morning and between 4pm and 7pm. You should not pay anymore than $40 pesos for the bus direct to Sayulita. Journeys can be very short at around 50 minutes or nearly 2 hours in heavy traffic. It is a fun journey when passing through all the towns and checking out the Jungle.
