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 or swimming.
Recent visitors recommend spending Thursday evenings doing the Bucerías Art Walk, a self-guided tour of more than a dozen galleries and arts boutiques. Beachside dining at places like Mar y Sol also comes highly recommended. If you're looking for a place off the tourist track, Bucerias is your secluded oasis.
To visit from Puerto Vallarta, you'll need to take a bus that departs from the Walmart located across the street from the ferry terminal. The bus journey usually takes around 30 minutes, and a round-trip ticket costs 68 pesos (about $3.60). Taxis or Ubers are also an option.
