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 20,000 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.

Whale Watching

Whale watching tours are great fun for couples and families. Marine biologists usually guide the aquatic adventure tours and are talented at finding marine mammals such as humpback whales, gray whales, spinner dolphins, spotted dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, and sea lions. This is an ideal excursion for shutter bugs and nature enthusiasts.


Puerto Vallarta & Riviera Nayarita are home to some of the best surfing spots in all of Mexico. Expect warm waters, gentle winds, and variety of surf breaks. Surfing is great fun and provides excellent physical exercise – ideal for both beginners and experts. Most tour companies will offer surfing lessons for beginners so you’ll feel confident and prepared to ride the tropical waves. If you’re an expert surfer craving some space, we recommend taking a boat to a secluded coastal area.

Paddle Surfing

Paddle surfing is an increasingly popular sport and offers a great workout and sight seeing. Participants often see dolphins, sea turtles, exotic tropical fish, and coastal birds. We highly recommend this Mexico activity because it doubles as a nature tour and exhila rating workout.


Continue your relaxing vacation in Mexico by sailing on serene Bahia de Banderas waters. Marine life frequently can be seen from a boat when the motor is turned off– whales, dolphins, manta rays, tropical fish, and coastal birds are commonly spotted during sailing excursions.
