When you are exiting the PV airport, use the pedestrian overpass to get across the street. At street level hail a taxi to take you to the bus station which is a few km distant. It will be pointing in the correct direction. The taxis across the street are much cheaper than 'airport taxis' which will charge about 200 pesos for that zone. Ask the price before getting in, so you know what the price will be.
Depending on how close you arrive vs departure of bus, you may want to take a taxi downtown (don't cross overpass) and catch it there. Have used the second class busses numerous times and found them to be fine. You sometimes get loud spanish movies and a few extra short stops along the way, but more choices of departure times and the opportunity to get off at the crucero for La Manzanilla (tell the driver!). However, if you are unable to catch a ride (hitchhike) into town, you may enjoy the 2 km walk into town! A taxi back from Melaque works well, but you will be backtracking about 20 minutes. So many choices!!
