          Hi Steve I am visiting the Riu Vallarta on 3rd of June, so looking daily at the reviews. I have noticed that you have given them a good review but only 1 Stars I'm guessing this is a mistake. Kind regards Julia

          Nothing close by at all. Rius are located on Nuevo beach, not a town. Bucerias is a good hour walk on beach. FORUM has more info..
