Bucerías is a lovely beach town located on the Pacific coast of Mexico in the Bay of Banderas, only twenty minutes from Puerto Vallarta. Once known as “Santa Julia de las Tablas” for its tropical wood exports, Bucerias now refers to “the place of divers” - a nod to the town’s pearling history. Situated on an uninterrupted coast of more than 18 miles, Bucerías is known for its cobblestone streets teeming with flowers and vines, people from all over the world, and delicious Mexican cuisine. This is the charming and vibrant community that Human Connections calls home.
Safety in Bucerias
With its peaceful and relaxing environment, Bucerias is popular among expats, as well as national and international visitors. The Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta are excluded from the US State Department Travel Warnings, as crime rates are low and the region’s tourism industry is carefully protected by all.
