Your guide to Bucerías
Welcome to Bucerías
Along Mexico’s central Pacific Coast at the southern end of the Riviera Nayarit, Bucerías is a fishing village turned resort town. Visitors come here to chill on the wide sandy beach, sample local seafood, and sip drinks in beachfront cafés. On the north shore of Bahía de Banderas (Banderas Bay), Bucerías is north of Puerto Vallarta, the region’s largest city, and east of the Punta Mita resort area. The waters of Banderas Bay draw scuba divers and snorkelers who revel in its diverse ecology. In town, you can hang out around Plaza Bucerías to get a feel for the local vibe, or browse the Wednesday farmers’ market for snacks, juices, and more of the town’s ambiance. On Thursday evenings from November through April, follow the Bucerías Art Walk to visit art galleries and artist studios. If you’re arriving in the winter, whale watching is a popular activity here. Book a boat tour to spot humpbacks as they migrate along the coast from December through March.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Bucerías?
December through March is winter here, and it’s also high season in Bucerías and along Mexico’s central Pacific Coast. Visitors from the north book vacation rentals here to escape the cold, and the warm, dry days and slightly cooler nights make it a beautiful time to relax at the beach. Spring (April and May) and fall (October and November) offer good alternatives to the busy winter, as they’re usually less crowded, and prices may be lower. The exception to the rule comes during festival periods such as Semana Santa (Holy Week) around the Easter holidays and Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) in autumn. From July through September, the region sees the hottest temperatures, averaging above 30 degrees Celsius, and the most rain — although rain showers, while intense, can be relatively brief.
What are the top things to do in Bucerías?
The beach is what draws most travellers to Bucerías, so take time to relax on the sand, stroll the shore, stop into a beachfront café, and watch the sunset over the Pacific. Looking to get offshore? Local outfitters offer snorkeling and scuba diving trips throughout Banderas Bay.
If you want a little more action than you’ll find in quieter Bucerías, head north to the surfer town of Sayulita, where you can catch some waves, take a surfing lesson, or simply watch the action from shore. Beyond the beach, Sayulita has great cafés, bars, and taquerías.
Spend at least a day wandering through Puerto Vallarta, the largest city on this section of Mexico’s Pacific Coast. Check out the Zona Centro, Puerto Vallarta’s old town, walk along the malecón (beachfront promenade), and eat your way through the food stands and eateries in the Zona Romantica. A popular nature attraction is Jardín Botánico de Vallarta, the botanical gardens south of the city.
