Those who plan a luxurious vacation to the tropical paradise of Punta Mita, Mexico, have many wonderful activities awaiting their arrival. However, when you’re not busy with the fabulous snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, world-class golf and luxury yacht charters, you might want to consider taking a day trip over to nearby Bucerias so that you may enjoy its many excellent offerings that are centered on art and culture. These are just a few of the most popular activities that are available in Bucerias.
1. The Bucerias Art Walk
Typically held on Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m., this fabulous art walk is filled with fascinating pieces of artwork in every medium. You’ll see art created by talented locals and from all around the world. Your stroll will take you down Lazaro Cardenas, and you’ll find many open art galleries along with art displayed out on the street. Many of the artists are present to talk about their work, and art classes are often available during this event. There’s a good bar along the walk as well, so you should feel free to stop in to mingle with your fellow art enthusiasts.
2. Bucerias Cultural Tour
Human Connections is a local tour company that offers small-group tours of the non-tourist neighborhoods in Bucerias. With the help of a translator, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and speak with local families and artisans. You may expect to be invited to do a little painting or weaving with the experts, and everyone is treated to an authentic Mexican meal at the end of the tour.
3. A Broken Art
Come enjoy some time in this lovely art studio that is filled with wonderfully whimsical creations from a truly talented local artist. You’ll find hand-painted glass, mosaic works of art, pottery and stained glass. Depending upon when you arrive, you may see the artist working her magic on a new project, and workshops are available that allow participants to create some art of their own. Several unique pieces may be purchased, but no pushy salesperson will bother you.
4. Bucerias Art Gallery and Studio
This is an awesome place that supplies you with everything that you need to create your own art. There’s no official instruction, but you’ll have a local artist walking among you to offer advice and answer questions. You may also choose to participate in a two-day workshop that ensures you’ll have a custom piece of art to take home at the end of the last day. Those who have no wish to create may walk around the gallery to see the art, and there are often special art events taking place at this location.
5. Food Tour
Through Bici Bucerias, you can combine your love of food with a wonderful three-hour bike tour. You’ll have a chance to explore Mexico’s culture through its wonderful foods, and your excellent guide will take you on a lovely ride through the countryside with multiple stops for food sampling. Expect to enjoy spectacular views of the Sierra Madre Mountains, and your food stops will include homemade pastries, coffee from beans that have been locally grown, artisan juices and wonderful fish tacos with cold local beer.
