Puerto Vallarta Cycling Tours with Bici Bucerias

Is Cycling Safe in Puerto Vallarta Mexico?

I have been riding over 7 years now in Mexico. I have done all of the regular rides that we take our clients on hundreds of times. In addition, I have explored the big mountains in Mexico's rugged interior and I have always felt safe. Here is one of  many reviews from a client regarding his experience including safety.

Cycling in Puerto Vallarta Review

“Amazing biking experience down south !”

Reviewed 13 April 2016


I visited Puerto Vallarta for the 6th time this year and for the first time I intended to bring my bicycle with me in order to explore the town a bit and the surroundings. I was so pleased to find out about Bici Bucerias shortly before my trip as I ended up saving all the hassle of packing / transporting my bike and instead got a very good Specialized road bike from them, which fitted me perfectly. I just brought my shoes and pedals with me. 

But the most interesting thing about the whole bike rental and guided tour experience with Bici Bucerias is that through their amazing service and guidance, I actually explored A LOT MORE than what I would ever had done on my own ! 

From Sayulita, Punta de Mita, San Juan de Abajo, El Colomo, Las Palmas, La Estancia, Mismayola, Boca de Tomatlan and El Tuito, I was able to cover all sorts of terrain from the flats to the rolling hills, along the ocean, in the countryside, to the bigger climbs like La Estancia in the Sierra Madre, there's really something to please all level of cycling enthusiasts ! 
I was on vacation for two and a half weeks so I was able to spread the numerous tours over the course of my stay in order to balance with other vacation activities. But even for someone that's just there for a week, it's well worth it to go and do a couple of nice tours as you will be amazed at the quality of the service being offered by the amazing staff at hand and you will also be amazed at the beautiful roads available in Puerto Vallarta and the neighborhood ! And yes it's very safe ! I felt safer biking there than in downtown Ottawa, Canada ! Drivers are very courteous and will not pass you until its safe to do so, again, very amazing !!
As well, the bike guides are all super awesome and will adapt to your level of fitness accordingly.

In conclusion, would I go again ? well my flight tickets are already bought for my 2.5 weeks stay in 2017... ! Looking forward to more climbing and great riding down south as I not only enjoyed it immensely this year but also made friends at the same time !
