If you’re on your way to Bucerías and you’re not sure what to do, where to eat, or how to get around—don’t worry! Read on and we’ll tell you everything you need to know to visit Bucerías like a local!
What to do
Bucerías is a traditional and very Mexican micro-destination in the Riviera Nayarit. It’s quite colorful but at the same time calm and relaxing. You’ll find plenty to do, though, including diving, paddling, kite surfing, cultural tours, gallery walks, and the chance to immerse yourself in everything that’s wonderful about Mexican culture.
Where to eat
The food here is the most delicious thing you can imagine: the seafood is always fresh, with quality dishes original to this area. We recommend pulling up a chair at El Brujo, Sukha Beach House or Mariscos Villareal for the best seafood in the region!

Where to stay
You’ll find several options for accommodations in Bucerías; we recommend the following hotels: Refugio del Mar: This is a very pretty and colorful retreat with its own Mexican restaurant. It’s ideal for couples and families. Decameron: This one is made for families, with seven eateries that include Asian, Mexican, and Italian options. Its activities program is varied, and you’ll have a lot of fun at this beautiful hotel. It also boasts a “clean beach” certification. Vista Vallarta: Located in the northern part of Bucerías, this is another excellent vacation option in the Riviera Nayarit. It has a pool you’ll enjoy just as much as its gorgeous stretch of beach.
How to get around
It’s super easy to get around Bucerías: if you want to go to Puerto Vallarta, Punta de Mita, or Sayulita you can simply hop aboard the public transportation (about $20 pesos, depending on where you want to go). Taxis and Uber are also available with variable rates, or you can rent a car. It’s pretty easy to get to where you need to go, just make sure you get the right address for where you’re going before you leave.
Of course, don’t forget to meander around the town’s lovely streets and take plenty of pictures, especially in the callejón del beso, or “kiss alley.” Remember to add the #rivieranayarit hashtag on any social media posts: we’d love to see how much fun you’re having!
