This small town, approximately 15 miles north of Puerto Vallarta, stretches along the Bay of Banderas, just a bit north of Nuevo Vallarta. Bucerias is very laid back with a great beach, several hotels and a few great eateries. Bucerias is becoming a favorite among retirees. Quite a few homes have been built here by those wishing a bit slower pace than Puerto Vallarta has to offer. You may find the laid back pace to your liking. Limited water sports are available from the beach and several golf courses are located near by.
