About these ratings

A great place to experience the joys of a resort town without the tourist-palooza that is Puerto Vallarta, the small fishing village of Bucerías is steadily becoming a popular day trip for PV vacationers. If you have the time to spare, take a bus to this beach hideaway up the coastline for an afternoon of fishing, swimming, art gallery-gazing or beachside dining (recent guests recommend you try some tacos while in town). If you're looking for a place off the tourist track, Bucerias is your secluded oasis — some travelers even said there were times when they were the only ones on the entire beach. 

To visit from Puerto Vallarta, you'll need to take a bus from the downtown area. Buses generally leave on the hour and cost 20 pesos (approximately $1.50 USD) one-way.
