Nice 4K walk up the beach from the Riu hotels. Take water if you walk it in the daytime. Not a lot to see up the beach but just nice to walk the distance if able.

Bucerias is the hidden treasure of the PV area. The restaurants are fantastic and authentic. The area is safe and bustling with activity. Cab service is instantaneous. The church and bizarre area in the heart of the city is full of friendly, helpful locals. You should absolutely add Bucerias to your PV, NV itinerary. Come hungry and you will not... More

Great place to find seafood on the beach or overlooking the beach! Enjoyed shopping in the "flea market" area, with prices a bit less than in Puerto Vallarta. We ate at Miguel Angel's....great food

I love here, so of course I love it. Small town. Nice, friendly, down- to-earth residents. Some great restaurants and beaches. Fun sports bars. Interesting bike rides, hikes and horseback trails. Wonderful church: La Fuente Riviera

Taxi drive from our hotel near the airport to Bucerias took about 30 minutes. We immediately went to a crepery for breakfast. Well worth it. Casa Triskell run by a French man and he was very friendly and polite. The crepes were delicious as were the Latte, Cappuccino and Frappuccino. After that my wife and daughter took off to the...

Just a short bus or cab ride from Vallarta, the shopping, eating & beach is amazing. No hustle and bustle here, smaller town but lots to see and do.

Bucerias is a nice town. We happened to be there on a day when there was a carnival going on. There was the flea markets,Mexican food, rides for the kids and lots of boats on the water with balloons. It was a fun filled day.

loved the food! lots of Canadian memorabelia. Kelowna Rockets jersey! We were invited in personally and made to feel very welcome. Loved that they kept the vendors out so we could have a family lunch uninterrupted. Will look forward to going again and bringing a Vernon Vipers jersey
