About Sayulita

Known as the crown jewel of the Riviera Nayarit, Sayulita should be the next place on your vacation to-do list.

About Sayulita, Mexico

Not many people really knew about Sayulita until the 1960s when surfers found it and claimed it as one of the top surfing spots in Mexico.

This has shaped the area and the local mindset. This laid-back retreat is a unique combination of Mexican culture, Pacific surf, boutique shops and cool bars. So even if you don't surf, there's plenty to do!

Sayulita pokes out at the foot of the Sierra Madre Mountains, and is tucked away just off Highway 200. It may not look very different from other Mexican hideaways, but dig a little deeper and you'll see that it's a kind of bohemian paradise. Perfect for relaxing, exploring and enjoying.

What to do in Sayulita, Mexico

Surfing is the main activity in Sayulita – the waves are fantastic – but there are other things to try if that's not your thing.

Go stand-up paddle boarding around the bays, and see Sayulita from a completely new perspective.

If staying on land is more your thing, why not head to one of the yoga retreats? They'll show you how to relax and really embrace the Sayulita way of life.

Animal fans have plenty of options, too. Go whale watching on one of the tour boats. Chances are you'll see humpbacks, Bryde's whales, dolphins and Orcas jumping out of the water – they put on a great show!

If you can bear getting up early on vacation, try and time your trip to coincide with the turtle release. The Sayulita beaches are a nesting ground for sea turtles, and every year a rush of babies try to make it back to the water.

For the adventurous types, there are canopy tours, jungle biking and horseback riding centers, so there's never a dull moment!
