Hola Mexico! Four Active Vacation Ideas

Where do I go for a winter vacation? 

Challenge your expectations with an active Mexican Vacation

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Mexico? Montezuma’s revenge? Pushy timeshare salesmen? An all-inclusive bonanza of burritos, Tequila cocktails and sunburn?

Maybe it’s time to discover a whole different side of Mexico – the side that’s perfect for the active adventure-seeker.

After three years of pursuing our vacation rental and cycling tour business in Bucerias and Puerto Vallarta Mexico, we’ve seen a big shift in who’s vacationing here. More and more, it’s “active” vacationers who’ve discovered there’s far more to Mexico than meets the eye. Opportunities for adventure – and some of the best cycling you’ll ever experience – abound here!

If you find yourself in Puerto Vallarta, Bucerias, Punta Mita or Sayulita, join us for a road ride complete with bike and guide. If you’re looking something more all-encompassing, here are four vacation ideas to immerse you in a side of Mexico you never expected!  For more details, visit www.BiciBucerias.com

Gran Fondo Riviera Nayarit Mexico 2016 #GFRN2016

Road Cycling in Mexico - A Gran Fondo in Paradise 

Our second annual Gran Fondo is approaching and will take place on December 4th. As a special surprise, we will soon be releasing details of a new Individual Time Trial and Team Time Trial to take place the day before on December 3rd. 

The Velo Bike Time Trial course will have incredible views and challenging roads. There will be an Individual Time Trial (ITT) and a Team Time Trial (TTT) category to choose from. The course is a 15.2 km loop that starts and finishes in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. This challenging loop has a total elevation gain of 189 meters. It will be especially challenging for those who opt to do the 4 up TTT as it will require teams to stay together over several up and down sections along the coast as well as a final climb and descent back to La Cruz.
