|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 daytrip 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). One visitor tells TripAdvisor: "My husband and I went to Bucerias the day after we arrived in Vallarta and it was absolutely DEAD. We sat at a restaurant on the beach in lounge chairs drinking Corona's and the only people we saw were the vendors. … All in all we had a great day and would recommend it for a nice day away from Vallarta for a slower pace."
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.
