Best of Nuevo Vallarta » Local information » Personal Guided Tours of Bucerias

Want to SEE more of Bucerias and surrounding areas?

We sure appreciate our visitors in Riviera Nayarit so we want to help you get the most out of your trip.

The main purpose is to make you feel comfortable and safe during your stay. Many people have just never seen much outside their hotel area or have stayed in areas popular to tourists but where are all the Mexican people and families?


They live in areas typically more affordable and would't you like to visit them there and experience more of their culture in Mexico?

This is a behind the scenes tour that most tourists do not see, we think you should! Come spend time with us and we will convince you what a great place this is. 


3 or 5 hour personal guided tour around Bucerias and local areas


About Us

Hopefully you've already read our story but if you haven't, we leaked our story here to the local Best of Bucerias press, but there is a lot more to tell!

My name is Troy and we are originally from Canada, we moved to Bucerias 13 years ago with our children and have experienced more than we orginally imagined. The culture here is so inviting and once you understand the ways of this area, you will embrace it and approach it with a little sense of humor.


These information sessions and personal tours are for you!

  • Even if you are only here for a short vacation, this tour will help you relax and give you peace of mind. Once you really know the area, you will be more comfortable to explore it and enjoy it.

Our Personally Guided Tour Around Bucerias

We can customize it to what you want to see most.

  Let us know where you are staying, we should be able to pick you up then hit the road to show you how special Bucerias is.

 We will take you to our best recommendations for dining, art galleries, tour excursions, doctors/clinics/dentists and of course - no tour is complete without a taste of one of our favorite taco stands!

 Then, we take you through nearby La Cruz, Mescales & San Vicente to see how other locals live just outside Bucerias (5 hour tour we go further and see even more!). We discuss local customs, safety issues, how to get around town or even the challenges of dialing phone numbers locally etc.

This one tour we went to one of my favorite taco stands and a local musician came by with his guitar to preform for a few pesos. After doing so, the owner Hector asked the musician if he could take a turn with the guitar then brioke out in song and wow did he nail it.

What others are saying about this tour

Thanks so much for a super day! Will use your site for dinner reservations from now on! We toured last week with Troy! We’ve been coming to Nuevo Vallarta for over 10 years, but really wanted to learn more about the area and the people. Troy is extremely knowledgeable and has a very outgoing personality, perfect for this job. We learned and saw so much! Toured Bucerias, Mezcales, La Cruz and San Vicente. Stopped at Gordo’s Tacos. You have to taste these! Best I’ve had! Thanks again Troy for such a memorable day! Susan and Brent, Calgary

"Thank you Troy for an awesome day. You were great company and your compassion for the area and the people was awesome. You brought us to places that we would not have seen as a regular tourist. After your tour we walked along the beach to La Cruz and enjoyed drinks, oysters and shrimp at the Oyster Bar and plan to see Bucerias tomorrow. We feel so much more comfortable exploring the area after your tour. Thank you for extending our vacation beyond the beaten path. Keep up the good work!" Bernie - Alberta, Canada

"The info on the website was very helpful for a first time visitor to the area. I found myself reading more and more of the website as our trip approached. My husband and I went on a 3 hour tour of the area with Troy and it was great. We went with him our first morning in town and it gave us lots of ideas of where to really spend our precious vacation time. The area is gorgeous and fun to see from other perspectives - away from the "gringo" areas. Bucerias has the best beach for walking and just hanging out-much easier to walk during low tide! Troy is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area - seems to know everyone around! So many things to see and do in the area..." Bev - Chaska, Minnesota. US.

Thank you Troy, for an amazing tour of "real" Mexico. We enjoyed visiting the small towns near Puerto Vallarta and getting a feel for the Mexican way of life. They don't appear to have much, but Mexicans are truly happy. And you were right about the roadside tacos. They were absolutely delicious (with no ill effects)! We highly recommend your tour. Brent & Betty S.

Hi Troy. Taking full advantage of what I learned courtesy of your tour, which continues to pay benefits, not the least of which was dinner with the love of my life at their best table. Happy to share some photos with you. Richard R.

We did have a great time on our tour and I will post a note on your site. Thanks again, Sandra L.
