Furthermore the streets are not well marked with a lot of one-ways you just seem to have to know. Road signs are small and hard read, especially as they fly by when the speed of traffic.

If you were heading out of town, yeah, maybe, but inner city driving is just nuts.
All cities are like that; once you get out of town there is an immense amount of beautiful riding to be done.

The Toyota dealer in PV has aptitude (from having sized the place up & having been one of those wrench pullers) while using their showroom floor computer for free. Lots of big, nice car dealers there, MC's, I don't know... yes we know this started some years back but others have posted since then...
As to traffic-there are more walkers bar hopping than drivers in PV, curious comment about traffic in PV? Hardly a concern.

Is there a rideable road to Yelapa now?

Hello,

I will warm up this thread again

The traffic isn't so bad here. Especially at christmas time there is much more traffic than normal.
But if you leave the city you are on many roads, not on all, pretty alone. That's real awesome.

I offer guided Tours around Puerto Vallarta to beautiful areas and as well Bike Rental.

Just have a look here

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Saludos

Jürgen
