Sayulita is a village on Mexico’s Pacific coast backed by the Sierra Madre Occidental mountains.
It’s known for beaches with strong surf, as the central Sayulita Beach. To the west, Los Muertos Beach is more sheltered, sandwiched between protective rocks.
Galleries in Sayulita sell artworks by Huichol indigenous people. Southwest, the Marieta Islands have diverse wildlife such as humpback whales and dolphins.
Located roughly 25 miles northwest of the busy city and crowded beaches of Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita is the perfect destination for surfers and anyone in search of peace and quiet.
Catch a massive wave or spend a calm afternoon sunbathing at secluded Playa Carricitos.
Or if you’re a beginner, sign up for a surf lesson at one of Playa Sayulita’s many surf schools.
For slightly safer swimming conditions and excellent people-watching, visit Playa de Los Muertos.
When you need a break from the sand, check out this relaxed town’s colorful shops and cafes.
