Bucerias Community News – World Cup Soccer Begins!

Bucerias Community June 2014 News

Hola Bucerias Community, Banderas Bay and beyond! Well! We certainly have had early rains in the Bucerias Community and Banderas Bay this season!  All of the rivers and estuaries are flowing, including Bucerias. Please do not try to cross the river when it is flowing, as it can be very dangerous, even in your 4×4!
Unfortunately, this also means a lot of trash is flowing to the oceans, so please be sure to pick up the trash around your casa, even if its not yours! On the other side of it, the heavy rains  are wonderful as they wash all of the dirt and dust off of everything, and although it brings in the humidity, it also leaves a fresher feeling all around, watering the jungles green once more. We have also had quite the lightning show over the bay!
Hurricane Season
A Class 5 hurricane has not made landfall on the Riviera Nayarit siince 2002, when Hurricane Kenna hit land with the epicenter about 255 mi southwest miles north of PV in San Blas.  Marshall law was declared, according two long time residents Bob and Trish Shelton, and they made everyone leave the shore areas by gunpoint. Trish stated, “It seemed that they were not going to leave, so they had to force them out!”
Its unlikely that an “eye” of a class 5 hurricane will directly hit Puerto Vallarta, however, the waves were so huge from Kenna  that as they came into the bay, and to the P.V. area, it wiped out the PV Malecon, and two blocks of stores up. Trish told me that she knew some diver friends that went diving afterwards to get a lot of the jewelry Hurricane Kenna 24 oct 2002 1750Z.jpgthat had been washed out to the bay!
To quote Wikipedia “The worst of the hurricane’s effects occurred between San Blas in Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta in Jalisco, where over 100 people were injured and thousands of homes and businesses were damaged or destroyed. 95% of the buildings in San Blas were damaged, and hundreds of buildings were destroyed along coastal areas of Puerto Vallarta..”
Our beautiful Banderas Bay protects us, thank goodness, but we will always get the surf and surge from the hurricanes.
This information is not intended to create fear. We are very good about keeping each other informed in the Bucerias community, PV and along the Riviera Nayarit. It’s always a good idea to pay attention to the weather, like NOAA.gov or another source, It looks like its going to be quite the rainy season, being an El Nino year. So batten down the hatches and get prepared, and stay informed to make the best decisions. To find out more about Hurricane Kenna, just Google it!

Bucerias Community Summer Rain Begins

Bucerias Community ….Raining in May!

Hola Bucerias Community and Banderas Bay people! Our first hurricane, Amanda, has brought a small amount of rain to Bucerias. The storm was centered out to sea so there was not any huge amounts of rainfall, and also an unusually low amount of wind.  It seems to be a slow moving storm as it heads down the Riviera Nayarit headed towards Baja. I love the first rains, as they clean the dust off of everything, and the jungle begins to come alive with green again. As most have already heard, it is predicted to be an El Nino year, with several large hurricanes predicted, so if you have not yet done so, get ready for a rainy, big storm summer season.

The Bucerias Plaza Meeting
Miguel Angel,the owner of “Miguel Angel’s Restaurant at the Plaza in Bucerias Centro is holding a meeting about the plaza and would like to invite  all residents of Bucerias to join him this Friday, May 30th for a meeting at 1:30 pm in the plaza.  (if its raining, go to the Miguel Angel Restaurant on the north side of the plaza)
Representatives of the municipal and city government have been invited to give us an up date on the progress of our “New Plaza Project” and hopefully open the road way around the plaza.  Please come and ask your questions. It will be nice to find out what is going on, and when the plaza project will be finished.

Benefit for Wayland
Wayland is to be coming home hopefully this Friday with part of his nursing staff helping for the next week. He is improving daily, and the lung infection had cleared. You may check on his status at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/waylandcombe-wright . If you would like to donate cash monies, please do so at the Paypal account. You don’t need to have a Paypal account to do this. Simply go to Palpal.com and put in this email address (Waylands Daughter’s) Kaerolik@yahoo.com .
Benefit Wayland
held at Philo’s last week was a huge success! It really does take a village, and the La Cruz community and Bucerias community and beyond came together and made it happen in a very short period of time. From the planning committee, the musical guests, the chefs, silent auction contributors, to all of the good folks that purchased tickets, drinks, and folks who purchased items in the live auction and everyone who contributed cash money, it all came together and still is! So far the tally (and still counting) is $150,000 pesos! We will have specific stats very soon, and keep you updated.
This is our village, our friends, our family, our La Cruz community and Bucerias community coming together. It’s good to know that when we do need assistance that we are all here for each other; truly proven time and time again. I am so very honored to be a part of this energy and know the wonderful folks that make up the La Cruz Bucerias community.

I would like to add, the list is quite long of everyone who contributed, and everyone does like to be validated. We would like to validate everyone who helped, and gave in their own way.
THANK YOU ALL! YOU ARE WONDERFUL!!
Wayland and Aruna salute everyone and thank you from the bottom of their hearts. The medical bills are astounding, as well as bills for continued care as Wayland recovers. Aruna told me that Wayland is humbled indeed by the outpouring of love, support and friends. We love you Wayland!

Bucerias Real Estate Summer Deals

Are you tired of trying to find the right rental? Summer can be one of the very best times to scout out a new Mexico home for sale. There are several reasons for this logic! First, you will want to see if there is any leaks in the roof, or if your street and yard do not have sufficient drainage. Another good reason is that you will have plenty of time with your realtor, as they are not near as busy during the summer months. And, lastly, you may just get a bit of a better deal during this time of year, as sales are much slower, and folks would like to sell! Summertime is a buyers market!

Bucerias Classic & Bucerias Community News

Hola Banderas Bay and Bucerias Community! Well, its that time of the year again, and the winds are a blowin making it the perfect time of the year for the Bucerias Classic! There are prizes and raffles this season, with a chance to win a new Starboard SUP board!!
What a beautiful site to see all of the Kite-boarders out racing! I find it amazing that they don’t run into each other.
This yearly event brings out competitors from all over Mexico, US and abroad. I actually had one of the competitors Facebook me about a month ago asking if it was windy! He was heading down from Mexico City. It’s all happening this weekend, Saturday May 3rd and Sunday May 4th.  It will be a fun filled Bucerias community weekend for SUP’s, Windsurfers and Kiteboarding..let the races begin!! There will be Giant Slalom, Course Racing and Big Air for each category. This season is opening the race course to all disciplines: Raceboard, Foil, and TwinTip with 3 entries classes will be judged and also ranked.
