Best of Bucerias » Others » About us


It’s about having a vision.

Most of us love to explore, those that have traveled to Bucerias have discovered the clear blue skies, endless beaches and terrific hospitality and all that the surrounding area has to offer. There are also those that have made the leap to come stay here permanently who share a wealth of knowledge of the area.

Our goal is to share these experiences with you so you will have reasons to come back.  It will also provide honest feedback to those who work so hard to make your stay a successful one. The site allows us to forward any reviews from this site directly to Management, this helps our local establishments use this honest feedback to improve or build upon their hard earned reputations.

We thank you for your contributions and encourage you to forward our website to friends that would like to learn more of the area.

How it got started

There are some areas more popular than others. Many of us have landed in Puerto Vallarta (PV) on vacation, not really getting the chance to see the charm of the surrounding towns.  Once we came to Bucerias we could not leave.  Bucerias is special, a quaint little village just 20 minutes away from PV, but with plenty to do.  Please check out our surrounding areas page to see the beauty that surrounds Bucerias and take your time discovering our pages about the bay and Riviera Nayarit.

Living here in Bucerias with our wives and our children has been an amazing experience and our children have become fluent in Spanish, wished we could say the same about ourselves, that's where a lot of sign language comes in handy! As a family, we feel very safe here and often get frustrated at the negative news that surrounds Mexico. The swimming, beaches, tacos (oh the tacos!), the local restaurants and even school great.

  • We liked the area so much we wanted to help promote it. 

How you can help

We recently added a PayPal Donate button.  We are strictly looking for alternate ways to cover costs to help us continue to improve our website and make it more informative for you. The donation program will also take off some of the pressure on the local businesses who would like to advertise on our site but are struggling with the current tourist economy. They work so hard to make our vacations special and memorable that we would like to return the favor. 

If you would like to sponsor one of the business listed or have us add someone not yet on our website, please let us know.

If your heart impels you,
we gratefully accept.

  • The info on the website was very helpful for a first time visitor to the area. I found myself reading more and more of the website as our trip approached. My husband and I went on a 3 hour tour of the area with Troy and it was great. We went with him our first morning in town and it gave us lots of ideas of where to really spend our precious vacation time. The area is gorgeous and fun to see from other perspectives-away from the "gringo" areas. Bucerias has the best beach for walking and just hanging out-much easier to walk during low tide! Troy is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area-seems to know everyone around! So many things to see and do in the area...Bev - Chaska, Minnesota. US
