Default Puerto Vallarta

Can anyone tell me how far it is to walk from the port where the ship docks to the town? Is it walkable? I remember many years ago we were able to walk from the port to the hotel strip but I don't remember how far it is to the actual town.

Thanks.

We were there last January and it is a long walk to the Boardwalk. The ship docks in the hotel district. Cabs are plentyful and only cost $4.00 US funds, each way. You can also catch a bus, but they drive worse than the taxi cabs!!!!!!!!!!!

I am not sure about the custom aspect, you will read a variety of opinions on these boards regarding tipping, but I always gave them a $1.00 tip. It was easier to give them on 5 peso coin than dig out four one peso coins. I found most of the drivers very entertaining and the do work hard, driving in that heat all day. They are not pushy about tipping.
