Located north of Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita welcomes visitors interested in experiencing the many charms of a sleepy beachfront town along Mexico’s Riviera Maya. A few reasons to consider planning a trip to this hidden coastal gem include:
1. Food. With over 100 restaurants, Sayulita offers seemingly unlimited dining choices. Local delicacies include fish tacos and ceviche prepared with fresh catches straight from the ocean. Travelers can also beat the heat with a paleta, a traditional Mexican popsicle, while adults can enjoy a spicy cocktail known as the Michelada.
2. Lodging. Lodging options abound, as tourists can stay in the charming and uniquely designed Petit Hotel Hafa or the luxury beachfront Villa Amor. Alternatively, they can camp along the beach or rent one of the town’s hundreds of villas.
3. Surfing. A surfing hotspot since the 1960s, Sayulita attracts a number of advanced surfers looking to ride the challenging Pacific waves. However, the presence of surfing schools and ample board-renting options also make the town ideal for those new to the sport.
