The town is named primarily because most of the activities were related to ‘diving’ (buceo). From (buceo) derives the name Bucerias since the majority of the inhabitants were traditional oyster fishermen of the region, who dove for their catches to the depths of the ocean with only their instruments in hand. Only 20 minutes North of Puerto Vallarta, Bucerias (Boo-suh-rias) is nestled towards the North shore of Banderas Bay (Bahía de Banderas). Once considered a fishing village, it has become a home & favorite vacation spot to many that like the slighter, quieter side of life.

It is known for it’s slower pace yet has all the amenities that one needs to get away, get spoiled or simply be part of the local culture. Bucerias’ 5-mile stretch of soft sandy beaches, cobblestone streets and heartwarming charm give you the feel of simpler times.

Founded in the 1930’s, Bucerias is now home to some 17,000 residents made up mostly of Spanish speaking Mexicans. Many from Canada & the US have also chosen to settle here.

Along or near the wide stretched sandy beaches is a great selection of restaurants ranging from upscale to simple & quaint. Lots to do here! Some say that Puerto Vallarta was like this some 40 years ago.
Our roads, many hand built – stone by stone! Its amazing to see, it carries the old world feel. You walk on it and realize “this was built by hand”. You know you are experiencing Mexico when you see the town and how it was built. Careful what shoes you wear and always watch your step. Some means of living come from construction, tourism, fishing, corn/bean farming, hunting and cattle raising, right down to taco stand operating. The locals work so hard, most of them 6 long days a week, yet they always seem happy! You can always count on them to share what they have or know. One can easily get the sense they are glad you are here. Once you understand and appreciate their way of life – you can’t help but wonder why we focus on the things we do back home. It all seems so trivial. Their take on life is simple: family life, hard work and play. Some of the nicest accommodations are here in Bucerias, Boutique Hotels, Condos, or houses to rent, you will find a peice of paradise no matter where you go. We have been to so many locations throughout Bucerias, there is no shortage of views, ambiance and presentation.
