With all the manners of a quiet, modest town, don’t let Bucerias fool you. Its outward appearance belies an adventurous and festive spirit. A fantastic kite-surfing destination when the winds pick up in the summer and no shortage of beach clubs to enjoy any day of the year.
If mountain biking is more your speed, Bici Bucerias offers endurance challenges and guided group rides for residents and visitors alike. Paddleboarding, surfing, horse-back riding, hiking, taco sampling or simply relaxing beachside with an umbrella and a cool drink are all attractive options.
While pop-up parades and celebrations are par for the course in Bucerias, every January Bucerias celebrates Our Lady of Peace (La Virgen de la Paz), the patron of the local Catholic church with a large, vibrant street fair featuring traditional regional art, delicious foods, vendors, and rides and games for the children. The festival culminates in the not-to-be-missed Blessing Of The Fleet.
Bucerias’ burgeoning art scene is attracting artists and artisans from all over the Riviera, drawn in by the very affordable opportunities opening retail stores and studios. Join the weekly Thursday night Art Walk (high season), and spend your evening ogling gorgeous artworks, sipping tequila, sampling delicious eats and mingling with your neighbors.
