A lot less hectic than the malecon but still an enjoyable outing. Nice to get away from the hotel zone. Wanted to try street food but couldn't find tamales.

I enjoyed the ambiance of this small friendly town.I did not realize so many of the small businesses,restaurants and homes were Canadian owned.I enjoyed the clean sandy beaches and the small own ambiance of Bucerias compared to the busy but lively city

A great place to visit. A lot like the good old days of P.V. Great inexpensive oceanfront restaurants and relatively inexpensive accommodations. Nice safe swimming beaches. Fun place to visit. You will need a car to get there from Downtown Puerto Vallarta
