What is the best way to get there?

Tepic, Nayarit has its’ own airport and there are direct flights in from major Mexican national airports.

Puerto Vallarta is closer, but you will find more direct international flights into Guadalajara. Bus service into Tepic is frequent and cost-effective from either city. If you will fly into Guadalajara or Puerto Vallarta, and are interested in carpooling to Tepic with fellow FSF’ers, we will help you to coordinate with each other.
