Nearby Bucerias Sunday Market

The Sunday maket in Bucerias is the place to be for fresh fruit, fresh shrimp, small household items and many other things. Shop where the nationals shop and save! The Bucerias Sunday Market is located up the "River" which is the sandy road that crosses the middle of town. During the rainy season, it really is a river. Its a 5-8 minute cab ride and a great experience. Walk over to the other side of Bucerias Centro and find another market near the ocean. Stay long enough to have lunch or dinner right on the beach watching the waves crash into the shore and a margarita or cervesa in your hands!
