Believe it or not we gave Bucerias another shot. The town has grown over the year and there were a couple of restaurants that we wanted to try. Payo's still serve some of the best Mexican seafood around. Not fancy but just good food. We...More

Plenty of shops, restaurrants, bars, art gallaries and an old church. Walked up a down the main strip enjoying the taste of Mexico. Shop keepers will haggle on pricing but better deals here that at El Malecon. Was able to walk there from Hotel. Took...More

We walked the beach from our resort to Bucerias. It's a cute little village with a flea market, lots of great places to eat (try Fat Boys... great margaritas and tacos!!) And small village feel with all the same amenities as down town Puerta Vallarta...More

I walked the market and town by myself, I felt safe and everyone was super helpful. I was looking for an unusual item and everyone tried their best to find it.

Went to visit because the reviews talked about how this town reminds people of the PV of old. I did not feel the magic. I found it quite dirty, noisy and unorganized. I would have rather spent my morning elsewhere. Now, maybe all the people...More

Going to Bucerias tomorrow to grab lunch, are there any beach activities for kids? Such as jet ski rentals, the banana boat, snorkeling?

I have seen jet ski rentals, but didn't use them. I wouldn't say that Bucerias is good for snorkeling because the water is too murky. There's lots of boating/sailing options though. We don't have kids, so I don't know what... More

It is on the street that butts up to the ocean....way down the street to the north end. Another great Italian restaurant is Toscana Mia. Just does not have the beautiful ocean view
