Sayulita has something for everyone - we guarantee that you will enjoy yourselves while you are vacationing here.

SURF: Surfing is what distinguishes this beach from others on the Riviera Nayarit. Known as a beginner's surfing beach, the consistent and moderate waves make this a sought-after destination for surfers from as far away as Australia and Hawaii. There are several surfing schools and many qualified instructors to teach you this fun sport.


BEACHES: The main beach is 2.5 km. long with an abundance of palm trees, large rocks, and hilly jungle at its perimeter. There are restaurants at the south end of the beach, as well as "pangas", small boats that will take you out fishing or sailing to explore the Marietta Islands in Banderas Bay. Some of the beach restaurants will even cook your fresh catch for you! There is a lovely, smaller beach at the extreme southern end behind Punta Sayulita, called Playa de los Muertos (Dead Man's beach). It is accessible by foot or vehicle, and is so named because the path to the beach winds through the cemetery. The beaches and water are clean in Sayulita, thanks to a new water treatment system.

GOLF: Within 20 minutes of Sayulita you'll find a variety of world class golf courses - the Four Seasons Golf Club en Punta Mita, designed by Jack Nicklaus, El Tigre Golf Club in Paradise Village, Flamingos Golf Club, and Mayan Palace Golf Club. The closest and newest clubs are Litibú Golf Course designed by Greg Norman and the Golf Club in the neighbouring town of San Pancho, just a few minutes north of Sayulita.

WHALE WATCHING: From November to March you can see whales on their annual migration north. The whales are visible in their natural habitat from certain vantage points on the beach, or you can hire a tour boat to take you out to sea for a closer look.

THE OCEAN: From sailing on luxurious yachts to fishing excursions in sailboats, to snorkeling, scuba diving, and bird watching on the Marieta islands, there are many entertaining options to choose from on the Mexican Pacific coast.

GYMNASTICS, YOGA, SPAS, SALSA CLASSES: Sayulita offers a variety of first class exercise options available at different times throughout the day.

WALKING, MOUNTAIN BIKING OR HORSEBACK RIDING: Tours available for groups or singles with specialized local guides familiar with the area. Let them guide you on the safest and most interesting tours through the jungle and along the coast.

HANDICRAFTS, BOUTIQUES, JEWELLERY STORES, GALLERIES, SURF SHOPS. Sayulita has a great variety of shopping options with reasonable prices. The local Mexican street market is in the centre of town on Sunday mornings, just down from the plaza.

GROCERY SHOPPING. You'll find everything you need in the town to prepare your own meals in your private kitchen condo. There is a supermarkets, Mega and Wallmart, in Bucerías, but once you get here, you won't want to leave. In Sayulita there are smaller shops like those of years ago, but they're modern and contain a little of everything. As the centre of town draws you in, buying groceries turns into a fun activity. Look for the green cart in the apartment to take with you to the grocery store, rather than using plastic bags.

The fish market at the south end of the bridge is a must. Ask for the catch of the day which you will find displayed on ice, delivered fresh that morning. You'll find dorado, the most abundant fish in the bay, as well as corvillo, red snapper, sawfish, and shrimp, etc. You won't find fresher fish at a better price, you'll notice the difference! There is also a gourmet food and wine store, El Pico de Gallo, on calle Revolucion at the entrance to town, that has a wide selection of imported gourmet food items such as oils, vinegars, pastas, etc. There is an Oxxo in the centre of town.

PHARMACIES There are several well-stocked pharmacies throughout the town; if they don't have what you need, they can order it. There are two medical clinics in town, Dr. Moy's a half block south of the plaza, and Sayulita Medical Services across from the bookstore on calle Miramar on the north side.

RENTAL VEHICLES. A vehicle isn't required, as Pajaro de Fuego is only a ten minute walk from the centre of town, however, there are cars, golf carts and quads available to rent.

IMPORTANT: Many of the businesses don't accept credit cards, and there are no banks in town. There are several outdoor ATM machines around Sayulita, one in Oxxo, and one in Alas Blancas by the beach, however for maximum security, it's preferable to use the ATM machines attached to the banks in Bucerias.
