Hacienda Patrizia’s luxury villa rental is situated 20 minutes away from the Puerto Vallarta airport. Our villa is located in the friendly Lázaro Cárdenas neighbourhood in Bucerias and is easily accessible by car, bus, and taxi. There are a number of reasons to visit Puerto Vallarta, in Mexico.
Only 20 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, Bucerias (Boo-suh-rias) is nestled towards the north shore of Banderas Bay (Bahía de Banderas). Once considered a fishing village, it has become a home and favorite vacation spot to many that like the slighter, quieter side of life. Our Bucerias vacation rental is known for its slower pace yet has all the amenities that one needs to get away, get spoiled or simply be part of the local culture. Bucerias’ 5-mile stretch of soft sandy beaches, cobblestone streets and heartwarming charm give you the feel of simpler times.
Some say (with a bit of nostalgia) that Puerto Vallarta was like this some 40 years ago.
Founded in the 1930′s, Bucerias is now home to some 17,000 residents made up mostly of Spanish speaking Mexicans. Many from Canada and the US have also chosen to settle here.
Our roads, many hand built – stone by stone! It’s amazing to see, it carries the old world feel. You walk on it and realize “this was built by hand”. You know you are experiencing Mexico when you see the town and how it was built.
Bucerias is now on Central Standard Time (CST). This adjustment happened as of April 4, 2010 and is now the same time as Puerto Vallarta and the local airport! According to some resources, the change was made for economic reasons, due to problems related to missed flights and also with how the time change affects Mexican banks. This works out better for most as it eliminates a lot of confusion!
