Bucerias  Airstream / Parked RV Rentals

Bucerias Rentals can vary on the Riviera Nayarit in Mexico.

At Los Arroyos Verdes, we have all kinds of Bucerias rentals, one being a  airstream (Bucerias RV rentals) for staying.  If you want to stay in our space, in something different, try the airstream. We also have full amenities at our RV park. If you want to bring your own house on wheels, you can do that too and stay here with us.

I love the Airstreams, their dynamic design, their ability to travel and they last a lifetime due to the fact that they are made of aluminum. When I began to build Los Arroyos Verdes, I always wanted to have an airstream in the gardens on site, for the visitors. And it turns out it is my most sold room, at $80USD a night; something different for your stay at Los Arroyos Verdes for  Bucerias rentals

One day, as I was driving around Bucerias on the main road, I saw the airstream parked next to a taco stand. I stopped to look at it, in its perfect condition from 1967. I asked the owner of the taco stand who it belonged to and he said “it is mine”. I said “yours??” and I asked him if he was interested in selling it. He responded “why not!”

I walked up to check it out and entered it. It wasn’t in the best conditions inside, but as the good architect that I am, a thousand ideas started coming to my mind about how to fix it up to make a nice Bucerias rentals addition.
“It’s Christmas” said the owner, “My daughter lives in it, can it wait until after Christmas?” I told him “Of course not, I want to take it home today!” In the end, we made a deal and I helped the daughter pack all of her stuff in boxes and I left with my shiny airstream on the way to Los Arroyos Verdes, which at the time was still completely under construction. We polished it, cleaned it, straightened it up, connected the bathrooms, water, gas, electricity, television and now we have another room at Los Arroyos Verdes, creating another fun  Bucerias rentals.

The airstream is surrounded by gardens and has access to all of the amenities if you stay in it.  Our amazing pool, gym, Bamboo Restaurante, Temezcal (sweat lodge) and spa. We also have a area specifically for pets! with their own dunking pool… So, come and stay with us, come and get to know our space, come and visit! Check out all of our Bucerias rentals, one and two bedroom casitas,  and our One Bedroom Villas  and Two Bedroom Villas, lofts and of course, the airstream!

Los Arroyos Verdes has also recently added their Two  Bedroom Villas for SaleLocated 5 minutes from the Bucerias Beach and Bucerias Centro makes a perfect location for short or long term stays.

Living on the Riviera Nayarit and owning websites allows me to help non-profit organizations get their word out and about. They must be truly non-profit to get my attention. There are so many ways to help the Riviera Nayarit communities.

During the winter season, many expats come down for the 5 or 6 months to enjoy the warm weather. These people help out immensely with all kinds of non-profit events in many ways. However, its summertime now, and non-profit organizations like the BBCC need our help.  The BBCC summer program for the children has just begun. Its really fun for the kids, and all of the teachers and volunteers are absolutely NOT paid in any way. I will be teaching the kids how to swim! and help out with the birdwatching classes .with Luis Morales from the San Pancho Birding Observatory, another wonderful non-profit organization.

The Bucerias Community has a community center, called the BBCC, or Bucerias (Bilingual) Community Center.  The BBCC was founded in 2007, and offers a central hub for all residents and visitors to the area who wish to make new friends, learn different cultures and know more about their neighbors and their way of life. This Bucerias Community Center is an activity center dedicated to cultural appreciation for peoples of all ages and nationalities. The BBCC offers a summer program for disadvantaged kids so they can come and learn new hobbies and skills. The Children have fun learning and experiencing bird watching with Luis Morales who heads up the San Pancho Birding Observatory, clay sculpture, guitar lessons, swimming lessons, art and yoga and dance, as well as learning English. There will be story telling and fun and games. The children’s summer program fun started this week, so it’s not too late to get your children involved for the Bucerias community classes.  Call the BBCC at 322-102-0382, or stop by to Calle 16 De Septembre #40 Col La Unidad. You may also email them at: BuceriasBilingualCenter@yahoo.com

In general, the Bucerias Community Center serves some 60% Expats and 40% locals.  Seasonally this changes but during October to April when the Bucerias Community Center classes and workshops and main fundraising events take place, we are supported by Canadians, North Americans, Mexicans and some European or other South American culture-seekers! Contact the BBCC today for class information, or find out the many different ways you can help to support the Bucerias Community. Thank YOU!

A Mexican Folklore Dancing Fiesta History

Mexican Folklore Dancing is an authentic Mexican dance expression that displays the colorful heritage of the beautiful country of Mexico. It is influenced by the complex history of Mexico, from the Spanish Colonial Period, the Mexican War if Independence and the 1910 Mexican Revolution.  It also has a unique mix of the Mexican Indian indigenous cultures in Mexico.
When you put it all together, it is now developed into an amazing beautiful dance with beautiful colorful costumes. The dancing itself portrays stories of the struggles and joys of Mexican life, their religious and cultural beliefs and the other festivals that they hold every year.The orgin of the Mexican Folklore dancing came from the Mesoamerican days, when the dancing was performed to appease the gods of the Mayas and the Aztecs. When the Spanish came to Mexico in the 16th Century, they brought the European style of dance like ballet, polka, waltzing and schottische, which heavily influenced the indigenous dancing.
Other conquests allowed the German, French, Italian and Spanish dances to mingle with the original Mexican folk dancing and out of that came three forms of Mexican folk dance.The first one is ‘Danza’, which is an indigenous ritual dance usually performed in religious and community settings.
The second is ‘Mestizo’, where the western influence came into play in the steps and the theme.
Then the ‘Bales Regionales’ or the regional dances are a dance form by each community. This dance is usually done in community and theatrical performances. Each state and region in Mexico  presents the Mexican dance form in a style that reflects its own unique customs and traditions.
Every Mexican community loves to celebrate life with dancing and parties. They love life, and expressing life with dance.
Come on down to the Bucerias restaurant Sonora a la Parrilla on your Bucerias vacation on the Riviera Nayarit  for a delicious steak cut just the way you choose,  a traditional Mexican Folklore Dance on January 20, and enjoy the show while you dine. After all, you are in Mexico!

Here is a story in the words of the lovely Floydilou, (and yes, that is her real name!) telling their story of their journey to Bucerias Mexico.

Living on the Riviera Nayarit in Mexico
We are thrilled to announce the opening of The Bucerias Drop In Art Studio & Galeria on the beautiful Riviera Nayarit. Michael and I have been looking forward to the time we could come live in Mexico.  Have you ever considered living or moving abroad? Perhaps you have that Riviera Nayarit artist inside of you and are ready to come out to play?

When  I first arrived on a one way ticket to Bucerias in August,  Michael was back in Toronto on a contract job at the Royal Ontario Museum.  He has always supported me in my dreams.  I was on a mission to find a way for both my husband, Michael Carlyle,  and I to live and work in Bucerias, Nayarit.  We are not of retirement age.  Michael is an incredible artist and teacher.  I am a small business marketing muse whose mission is to help small business owners thrive in their communities.  With the advent of internet, Skype, social media. I believe there is a whole generation of people who understand  we are a border-less, global community with ample opportunities allowing us to explore and discover a new way of life.

Bucerias Mexico won our hearts. Michael’s love of the kind people here, the ocean encompassed by mountains, year long sun and the Bucerias art community made it a perfect fit. Michael grew up in Victoria and lived near the Royal British Columbia Museum. As a young boy he always frequented the museums. He loved to draw.  In his adult life he would take on a 20 year career at the Royal Ontario Museum   It is evident that Michael has always surrounded himself with art and he  has also collected 100′s of hard covered art books.  If he doesn’t have an easel or paintbrush in his hand, you will often see him reading biographies of famous artists from Maynard Dixon to Alfred Sisley. He is an avid student of art and evolving his art.
He attributes his success to his mentors and now friends (Tanyss & Harvey) of The Art Academy of Canada.
We are two people simply taking a step. A motto I live by is not to a life with woulda, coulda, shoulda. As Canadians we are blessed to have the freedom to go after our wildest dreams.

Opening the Bucerias Art Studio & Galeria
Michael, an artist of 20 + years and I, an entrepreneur and traveling opportunist decided this year to make a go of it and be here full time. With Michael’s talent and teaching background and with my creative entrepreneurial ways we opened The Bucerias Drop In Art Studio & Galeria on Lazaro Cardenas next to The Jan Marie Boutique. The Bucerias Art Studio on the second level, provides a venue for local and vacationing artists to gather, learn and create their work without the high cost and long term commitment of renting a commercial location.  Tuesday and Thursdays mornings Michael is onsite to provide artists constructive guidance and instruction. The rest of the week is open studio time to meet the demand of the growing Bucerias art community. Artists pay a 200 pesos daily fee to use the studio and work alongside like-minded artists. For better value you can take advantage of our monthly or seasonal rates.  We have people from all over the world for this Bucerias art experience and utilizing our open studio space. You may be painting next to someone from Paris or Oregon!  Taking beginner up to advanced Bucerias art classes at the studio is enjoyable as the space is open air, light and bright. He advocates painting from life thus teaches with real objects and people. You will catch the ocean breeze and have a view of the many tourists curiously looking up at the studio while walking down the main street Lazaro Cardenas .  While not in studio, Michael is most passionate about painting landscapes and offers plein air art workshops in Bucerias for both vacationers and locals.
Michael usually seen wearing a polo shirt, rolled up jeans with converse sneakers (or sandals when living in Bucerias) is casual by nature and intense with art. Michael has been commissioned internationally for his portrait work and has sold still life and landscapes at D&E Lake Galleries in Toronto, Mudpuppy in Windsor, Artcite in Windsor and most recently in Bucerias at The Bucerias Drop In Art Studio & Galeria. You can commission work by him, take a Bucerias art class, or purchase one of his paintings now on exhibit at The Art Bucerias Gallery. You can find him on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/michaelcarlyleartwork

The Bucerias Art Galeria on the lower level has open art exhibits on a rotational 3 week period for local artists to show their work. Every week their art is seen by 100′s of tourists who enjoy The Bucerias Art Walk on Thursday evenings at 7pm. The hours for the Bucerias galleria is Monday through Saturday from 10am to 4:30pm.  Currently on exhibit are over 20 original pieces of art under 400 pesos ($30), perfect for a meaningful and thoughtful souvenir gift, holiday gift or host gift. Michael and I would love to meet you. Come by and say ‘hola!’.
