About Bucerias, Mexico!

Bucerias (pronounced Boo-sir-e-us, which means "the place of divers") is a quiet, coastal town located 25 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta along the north shore of the Bay of Banderas (the seventh largest bay in the world) on the Pacific Coast of Mexico.

The zocalo (pronounced SO-cah-low, which means town square, large square or plaza) serves as the central point of Bucerias. Here people come to play, gossip, relax, socialize, dine and worship. Sunday is by far the most entertaining day to visit the plaza. Families dressed in their finest attend mass, balloon and cotton candy vendors hawk their wares to screeching children, old men sit on benches gossiping, and food vendors sell all sorts of delectable treats.

Additionally, you will find the church, numerous stores, town services and the open air market. Many of the less expensive motels and eateries are here, and there are many seafood restaurants. The town's main street is Bonfil, it is only two blocks long. It runs from the highway past the church and plaza to the beach.

Bucerias also offers one of Mexico's finest uninterrupted flat, white-sand beaches that stretches for approximately seven miles and connects to Nuevo Vallarta to the south, and Cruz de Huanacaxtle to the north. It is, without any doubt, the longest beach on the bay.

Surrounding Areas & Communities: La Cruz de Huanacaxtle (4.1 mi / 7 km), Puerto Vallarta (11.5 mi / 19 km) l Sayulita (10.6 mi / 17 km)
