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.

Another great stay in Bucerias at La Vida
Back to Sylvia’s for the 4th time in a year...do I need to say more?!
I am so thrilled to have you back to celebrate your anniversary! You guys are perfect guests.
Casa Syliva at La Vida
My husband and I had a wonderful time at Casa Sylvia. The apartment was clean, bright and spacious with everything needed for a relaxing and comfortable stay. The pool and grounds at La Vida are well kept and inviting. Jorge was there to greet us and was available anytime we had any questions. We will defiantly stay again.
Thank you for the comments. Much appreciated! I am glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you do come again. I know how you love the area.
Elegant and Comfortable
We stayed two weeks at Casa Tucan and enjoyed our stay at the condo and at the LaVida Complex. Thank you Sylvia
Thank you Jeannie! I know how much you and Nick loved it!
Never fails to impress...
Perfectly situated on the Bucerias beach, this was the third time we've been to Sylvia's Casa. Each time has been better than the last. A short stroll into the village and you'll enjoy myriad beach restaurants, shopping opportunities or chances to sit on the beach and partake in a bucket of ice-cold Coronas under any number of palapas at the local beach bar! The evenings serve up a picturesque sunset that can be enjoyed from Sylvia's infinity pool on her deck while sipping on a margarita (in a plastic glass of course!). Stroll up to the main highway and hop a local bus either south to Puerto Vallarta and walk the Malecon, or head north and jump off at the surfing village of Sayulita - lunch at Don Perdro's is not to be missed! I highly recommend Sylvia's for anyone looking to enjoy this beautiful part of the world!
Beautiful, friendly, clean and safe
We are leaving today and I am so sad. La Vida has come to feel like home, only my home in a lovely paradise like garden.
Thank you for loving La Vida as I do and returning for your 2nd stay! Your patience with the BBQ and adjusting the hot water tank was much appreciated. You can never predict when something is going to need a 'fix'. Your comfort and well being is my #1 priority.
Looking forward to having you back!
As returning guests we had another wonderful stay!
It was a pleasure to return to Casa Tucan. The property is serene, luxurious and situated in a wonderful location. Everything went seamlessly during our stay. Communication with Sylvia was super easy. We are hoping to rebook for next year!
Thank you for your kind words. It was a treat to have you return - the best compliment! I enjoyed having you again, as you love the place as much as I do. You are easy guests to have!
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.
