Nuevo Vallarta Half Marathon & Cycling Tour



Itinerary 

November 12th 

Arrival to Puerto Vallarta (PVR) Saturday Afternoon

Let your Bici Bucerias Tour Begin! 

It all starts off with a Bici Bucerias representative picking you up at the Puerto Vallarta Airport. From there you will be driven to your accommodations at maraVilla or Casa Victoria Villas.  Prior to your arrival we will get your grocery list together and have your breakfast goodies waiting for you in your villa. This way, you can eat breakfast at your convenience prior to our daily rides. We will assist with bike set up if required. If time permits we will go on a short introductory ride

Saturday Evening Welcome Dinner with Bici Bucerias

We will start our first evening with dinner at Chin-Gon (7:00 pm), which is an amazing local restaurant that specializes in Asian Flavours. We chose Chin-Gon for the first night because some guests are arriving late and not everyone is arriving at time where we can dine together. It is a perfect choice for a casual meal and and the same time we can get some delicious take out for you to enjoy at your villa if you are on a late flight! This is also a great chance for you to ask us questions as well as get the lay of the land.

Road Bike Tour - Easy

Bucerias to San Juan de Abajo 40 km

Our first ride will depart at 8:00 AM SHARP and we will head out on the cobble streets to the highway which will take us to Valle de Banderas and then San Juan de Abajo. From San Juan we will return to Bucerias, and for those who are interested, we will add another 20 km with an easy cooldown loop through Nuevo Vallarta. This is a fairly easy ride with every little traffic and flat lands. CLICK FOR MAP  

Optional 5 km light jog immediately after ride

Sunday afternoon (Seasonal. Ask for Details) we recommend spending some time at the La Cruz market after your ride. This is a weekly farmers market that takes place at the Marina. There are lots of local artisans, yummy food and entertainment. La Cruz is a short bus or cab ride away.  This side trip is highly recommended and you can check out some of the reviews at TRIP ADVISOR
