We have never been to Bucerias, but I think we would like the small town feel of the place, from what I have read. We have always gone AI, until last winter when we spent 2 weeks on Isla Mujeres, and loved the small downtown there with lots of restaurants within walking distance. Bucerias sounds similar to me. I have read the good reviews of RDC, and it sounds pretty popular.. in a nutshell what is so appealing about it. Do people go there and still go out for dinner/lunch a few times, or do they tend to stick to the resort. Would also love to hear from folks who have rented condos, or done both to get their comparison. We are also looking at Suites Costa Dorado. We are thinking about November trip. Thanks for your advice!
