Today I want to talk to you about Bucerías, one of Banderas Bay’s many coastal towns that has an authentic Mexican flavor, located in the Riviera Nayarit, just 20 minutes away from Puerto Vallarta.
Bucerías means “Place of the divers”, it’s an old fishing village named like that by the North American and Japanese divers who used to exploit pearl banks at the beginning of the 20th century. Bucerías stands out because of the beauty of its emerald colored sea beaches, its traditional beachfront square and its bright colored houses.
Bucerías offers the amenities of a small city as well, it has a wide variety of shops, restaurants, art galleries, excellent health services, beach clubs and bars just to name a few, this has increased the growing real estate offer for both rent and sale. This wasn’t always like this though, let me tell you…
Bucerías was a community with a rustic Mexican appearance, basic services and infrastructure, so interest from real estate developers was almost null until two decades ago. It was the tranquility of this town that attracted thousands of Canadian and American tourists looking for a benign weather and relaxed place to live each winter.
Over the years, the fishing village has transformed into one of the most thriving towns in the region, real estate offer began to grow after the developers noticed the affinity of national and foreign visitors who were no longer happy just renting a property and wanted to settle or live there permanently.
The real estate boom, which included new and luxurious condos for sale in front of the beach or near the sea, with modern amenities and decoration took place at the beginning of 2019. However, traditional architecture residences with a view of the bay, or houses and apartments with private subdivisions in a more accessible price range continued to be sold in the so called golden zone.
There are currently about ten new projects for rent and sale, some are already done, others are close and will be available in the next months. These are ideal for people looking for a second home, for retirement or real estate investment as well.
Best of all is that Bucerías hasn’t lost its Mexican town charm, its relaxed and uncrowded atmosphere makes it perfect for buyers looking to reconnect with nature, enjoying the best sunsets in Banderas bay.
