Sayulita featuring a sandy beach, surfing and tropical scenes

Stunning beaches, rolling waves, water sports, jungle treks and superb restaurants await visitors at this stylish getaway on the Pacific coast.

Sayulita is a chic, laid-back coastal resort backed by the jungle-clad slopes of the Sierra Madre. Explore the attractive village where brightly painted bars, cafés and hotels line a wave-strewn beach.

Once a sleepy fishing community and an off-the-beaten-track destination, today Sayulita attracts many visitors with its ecotourism, surf and outdoor activities. Water sports are part of almost every vacation here and surfing is particularly popular. Rolling waves crash onto the shore year-round and are suitable for all levels. Take lessons with experienced instructors or join daytrips to more challenging breaks. Bodyboarding, kitesurfing and stand-up paddleboarding, as well as regular swimming, are also commonly practiced here.

Jump on a panga boat, discover secluded snorkeling spots and try deep-sea fishing. From December to March, boat charters embark on whale-spotting excursions too.

Out of the water, relax on the soft sand or a sun lounger. Sip on beers, margaritas and freshly squeezed fruit juices while admiring the views of forested hills. Watch as bohemians, honeymooners, families and surfers mingle harmoniously.

For more active adventures, go trekking in the surrounding jungle. Hike to mountaintop lookouts and waterfalls, ascend to the treetops of a rainforest on a canopy tour and look for birds such as parakeets and pelicans. Guided horseback tours also run in the region and mountain biking tracks can be found here too.

Centered on a pretty square, Sayulita’s village is a lively commercial and entertainment district. Wander down palm-shaded streets lined with galleries, shops and vendors. Browse for artisanal jewelry, one-of-a-kind artwork and surfing apparel. Dining options are plentiful, ranging from ceviche restaurants to pavement cafés to taco stands. Party until the early hours at bars and live music venues.

Sayulita is about a 30-minute drive north from Punta Mita and about an hour’s drive from Puerto Vallarta. Public buses travel between the village and Puerto Vallarta.

"New hotel and elevator was not yet in service is one reason for mediocre review. Other is because there is no dresser and little counter space to store amenities, clothes, etc. Just have to live out of your open suitcase on the floor. Perhaps they just haven't outfitted the room fully yet. Otherwise, ..."
