Sayulita is used to be a surfer’s secret, is now the star of the Riviera Nayarit, a colorful, charming village that positively vibrates with good energy.
A couple of decades ago, Sayulita was a small fishing village. Then it was “discovered” by some adventurous surfers traveling the coast searching for the perfect wave.
Today, it’s a trendy destination, attracting not only surfers but international travelers. And considered as a magical town for the Mexican Government.

Sayulita also is hailed as a popular bohemian, off-the-beaten-path-travel destination. Sayulita offers various recreational activities such as horseback riding, hiking, jungle canopy tours, snorkeling, and fishing.
One thing has put Sayulita on the map, and everything revolves around it: the beach. If spending days by the ocean, chilling out and letting time go by sounds like your cup of tea, the Sayulita could be what you were looking for.
