Why Sayulita

Hip, cool and colorful - Sayulita is a beautiful beach town just 40 minutes north from Puerto Vallarta. With its lush jungle, fabulous scenery and amazing restaurants, cafés and shops - it is the dream destination for anyone. Sayulita is also known as a surf mecca because of its perfect conditions for surfers of all levels. Whether you're a complete beginner or a pro, Sayulita's beach has great waves for you. Even though Sayulita is mostly known for its surf, there are also a variety of additional activities such as yoga, hiking, horseback riding, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, jungle canopy tours and boat trips.  

One of the greatest qualities of this charming fishing village is that it has kept its authentic Mexican small town “vibe”. The magical atmosphere attracts an interesting mixture of people from traveling gypsies to upscale tourists. You will also find many interesting boutique shops with bohemian jewelry, clothing and art.

The Beaches

Whether it's swimming, paddle boarding or surfing - Sayulita playa (beach) has you covered. The main beach has several beach restaurants and bars to choose from as well as sun chairs and umbrellas for you to enjoy a lazy day at the beach. If you want more privacy you can walk to the nearby beaches, Playa los Muertos, being one of them. If you want to find a hidden gem, visit Playa Carricitos, here you will enjoy stunning sunsets and most likely you'll be the only one enjoying the view (perfect for romantic getaways). For even more remote beaches, visit Playa Patzcuaro or Playa Malpasos. These beaches do require a hike through the jungle to get to, but oh, is it worth it!
