Sorry, I have a few crazy questions. How far is RDC from Puerto vallarta? How far is the air port? Would you rather stay in Bucerias or Puerto Vallarta? I am not sure which location to stay at? We are looking for nice beach time, spa, shopping, and good food for picky eaters!!!

1. Re: Crazy!!!

We have stayed in PV twice and the RDC (Bucerias) twice. I love to visit PV but for me I don't think I will stay right in PV again. The beaches in Bucerias are so much more wider and longer and less clogged with people. We usually take the bus into PV once a week to shop and have Dinner. The cit bus takes about 45 minutes from The RDC to PV. And about 20 minutes to the airport. Give or take a few minutes. Like I said, I like the hussle and bussle of PV but "Love" the laid back feeling of Bucerias.

Bucerias and the RDC get my vote. Too conjested in PV. Love to shop and spend some time there, but hard to relax and enjoy yourself. Bubba Gump Shrimp is a neat place for a cool drink off the Malecon.
