Sun, sand, and surf are just a few of the reasons to vacation at Sayulita, Mexico, a quaint, uncrowded, and picturesque fishing village on Mexico’s Pacific coast. One of the gems of the Nayarit Riviera, Sayulita offers outstanding accommodations in a casual, family-friendly atmosphere that effortlessly combines the best of relaxation and adventure. Visitors can enjoy world-class surfing, whale watching, and activities for the whole family, then unwind on secluded beaches, stroll through the town shopping for handcrafted folk art, or dine at alfresco restaurants featuring everything from quick snacks to authentic Mexican cuisine. Sayulita is decidedly laid-back and bohemian, but exciting night life is just 30 minutes away at Puerta Vallarta.
Though Sayulita is becoming a popular vacation destination, it’s still very much a small town with a year-round population of less than 5,000. Nestled in a lush jungle setting with just one road in and one road out, Sayulita is a calm and uncrowded tropical retreat where the surroundings are beautiful, golf carts are standard transportation, and traffic jams are unheard of. Sayulita is proudly LGBT friendly and has a welcoming, inclusive vibe that makes everyone feel right at home.
