About Sylvia Bishop

I first fell in love with Bucerias in 2010 on a visit to friends. I love the food, culture, its people, the architecture and friendliness of this pueblo. I visit frequently and always relax to the sound of the ocean waves mixed in with the bustle of town activity. Eat in or dine out, everything is within walking distance. Or take a cab or bus into Sayulita, La Cruz or Puerto Vallarta. Get away from the wet and grey or cold and snow to warm up, sooth your soul and relax.

I consider this my second home and am happy to share it with travellers who also love sun, sand, surf and the quaintness of a Mexican village.

Sylvia Bishop purchased this condo in 2013

Why Sylvia Bishop chose Bucerías

La Vida is the only condo property in Bucerias with a true mexican feel. The architecture, colours and details make it a unique property different from any others nearby. A gated community with 24 hour security, it has only 23 units, all built with superior finishes. The manicured grounds are filled with native flowers. Something is always in bloom.

Located on the ocean, you are steps away from the Beach Club with its infinity pool, hot tub and small but functional gym. Need shade? Sun umbrellas grace each lounger. Or sit under the huge palapa and make yourself comfortable on the sofas. Beach life parades before you. There is always something to see. Look out over the ocean and you're likely to see whales or dolphins.

What makes this condo unique

Enjoy your morning coffee, breakfast, lunch and dinner seated on the patio deck overlooking the ocean. Gentle breezes keep you comfortable. Enjoy sunset cocktails and watch the sun set over the ocean. The evening sky explodes with colour. You'll never want to leave this spot. Feel like cooling off? Slip into your private dipping pool with built in bench and relax.

Enjoy cooking? The gourmet kitchen with top of the line appliances are made for you. A unique feature is the coved brick ceiling, a typical mexican detail. Or used the BBQ to cook up your catch of the day.

We're rebooking - what more can I say!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Tucan! The condo is part of a very beautifully designed small complex that reflects luxury, serenity, privacy, security, convenience and amenities. We mostly enjoyed the open-air living room with very comfortable seating and glorious views of the bay. The dipping pool on the condo patio is a lovely feature. The decor, together with the aesthetic soft lighting at night, provided the most atmospheric evenings. The property manager, Jorge, was terrific--easy to reach, spoke English well, was very kind and helpful and the property staff were also great.

Mother / Daughter immersion

  • 5 of 5

My 7yo daughter and I went on a 30 day Mexican adventure this summer and adventure central was Casa Toucan. We had Spanish lessons, we ate out / ate in, we rested, we swam in the pool and the ocean, we snorkeled and went horseback riding. I found local dance lessons, day camps as well as glass blowing and art classes for my daughter (thanks to my friend and tutors contacts). We walked everywhere and we shopped at the local businesses on the main street as well as the Plaza about a half a mile away...fresh, hot chocolate churros anyone?? YUM!!!! Sylvia has done a great job with the house as it is beautifully decorated peaceful and comfortable to lounge in. She and the house manager helped immediately with some technical difficulties that came up due to the storms. And, I should also add that the most important feature for my husband (who wasn't travelling with us) was that it was safe. Hablo un poco Spanish, but that's about it. The gated property and the SUPER kind 24 hr / day staff stationed BOTH in the front and back of the property was very reassuring. The staff greeted us kindly daily, they helped us get early morning cabs to PV or Punta Mita for our snorkeling trips and we also got a call in the middle of the night to bear witness to a mama turtle laying it's eggs. What an amazing treat that was and all due to thoughtful staff!!!! The dipping pool located on our balcony was a fun ritual just before bed and the ocean breeze was a pleasure given the hot days. We've been back a little over a month and I miss it all. I wish I was there and we can't wait to go back (with my husband next time). Stop looking ... if Bucerias is where you want to go, this was the cleanest, safest and most central place to stay in. You will have an amazing time when you go ... Adiós amigos!!!

Owner's Response: Bucerias is indeed a special place and I am glad you both had such a wonderful time. While it can get hot and muggy in the summer months, the steady ocean breezes and cooling pool provide the perfect antidote. It is truly a wonderful get away without "hustle and bustle". Bucerias awaits your return!

We spent 2 amazing weeks in Novemver 2015 & are headed back in April 2016. La Vida is perfectly situated on the beach in Bucerias & walking distance to all coffee shops, restaurants, town square, bars & shops. The condo, Casa Tucan, has fabulous ocean views & is just steps to the infinity pool & beach. Beautifully furnished & a fabulous kitchen. There is also a barbecue on the huge patio. A glass of wine with dinner on the patio watching the sunset is a sight not to be missed. There's also a spa pool on the patio, perfect for relaxing & cooling down after a day in the sun. Check out the local markets - lots of fun & good food! Can't wait for April!

Christmas to remember

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Toucan over Christmas. We decided to escape the Wisconsin snow for sun and sand. We couldn't have been more happy with our decision. The home is absolutely beautiful. The kitchen has everything you need. The home is decorated with local finds that make you never want to leave! Our two college age children loved the various lounging areas and the daily fun in the waves. We rented boogie boards from the Surf Shop during our stay. ($5/day). Everything you need is within walking distance, except the Mega Grocery store which was our only cab ride during our stay. The restaurants are fantastic. I would highly recommend staying here. You will not be disappointed.

Awonderful family get away

  • 5 of 5

Before the owner listed on VRBO my husband and I and our daughter and her partner spent a wonderful 2 weeks at Casa Toucan. The furnishings and decor is beautiful and the views breath taking! We loved being able to walk to a wide variety of restaurants or cooking a meal at the condo. The houseman was friendly with an excellent command of English and was willing to take us to the grocery store Mega and help us find the items we wanted. He also did an excellent job of houskeeping. It made our holiday so relaxing! The pool beachside was warm and pristine. We can hardly wait to return!

Take in the flea market located in the Bucerias town center. You'll find quality items and the usual souveniers too. Enjoy one of the beach bars after exploring- prices are good and so is the food. For live music check out Fat Boy's on the beach.

While you're in El Centro (downtown) step into the church. It has it's own charm. It is well worth walking up and down the neighborhood streets to check out the local architecture and peek into luscious gardens.

Rent a bike and cycle through the area either on your own or with a small tour. It's fun and not expensive.

The Sunday market in La Cruz offers quality home made items including organic jams, honeys and other food. Find hand crafted jewellery, textiles and more! Also check out Tacos on the Street for the best anywhere Wed-Sun dinner only.

Like tours? Check out San Sebastien del Oeste, an old silver mining town. Stops along the way include tequila tasting and an old hacienda. You can trust any of the tour operators in Bucerias.

Jump on a bus and head to Sayulita, half an hour away. This surfing town has many unique stores and restaurants and great people watching on the beach. Highly recommend stopping for refreshment at one of the beach side venues.
