Getting to Sayulita

You’ll first need to fly to Puerto Vallarta International Airport. From the airport, it’s about 40 minutes to Sayulita.  To get to Sayulita from the airport, the best option is Uber, but you can also take a taxi. 

Where to Stay in Sayulita

One of my biggest Sayulita travel tips is to opt for accommodation that isn’t right in the middle of downtown Sayulita. The town picks up at night so if you want a restful stay, it’s a good idea to stay a little further out!  Our favorite stays are Don Bonito Boutique Hotel and Siete Lunas just outside town. La Joya is also amazing. 

Top Things to Do  in Sayulita, Mexico

Go Boutique Shopping

Sayulita is a great place to shop unique, boutique and local and you’ll see all the gorgeous boutiques as you explore. Most of the pieces you see are made locally and many of them are also from local Jalisco designers that combine local culture, history and traditions.

Go Whale watching

The whale watching season in Mexico is pretty short and only lasts from December to March each year but during this time it’s almost guaranteed to see humpback whales in Banderas Bay. To see the whales, you’ll need to go out on a boat as part of a tour or you can also rent a luxury boat for a day trip on the water.

Catch a Sunset at Carricitos Beach

One of the best beaches in Sayulita is Carricitos Beach. It’s located over the other side of the headland towards the west of Sayulita town. Carricitos Beach is the best for watching the sunset directly over the ocean (it faces directly west). Playa Carricitos Sayulita about a 20-minute walk from Sayulita town but the road is a little hilly.

Go for Brunch

With so many amazing cafes in Sayulita, you can’t pass up the opportunity to sleep in late one day and head to brunch. Two of my favorite cafes for brunch are Anchor Cafe and Miscelánea Cafe.
