Sayulita vacation rentals

Sun, sand, and surf in Sayulita

Situated on Mexico’s glittering Pacific coast, just a short drive north of cosmopolitan Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita boasts an altogether more laid-back vibe than its bustling neighbor. This blissful beach town was discovered by surfers in the 1960s, and has slowly evolved into an irresistible destination, replete with trinket-filled boutiques, family-run restaurants, and chic bars serving tangy, ice-cold margaritas. Once you’ve settled into your stylish Sayulita vacation rental, you can enjoy the town and its spectacular surroundings at your own pace. Embark on an invigorating hike through verdant jungles, head out in search of the perfect street taco, or simply take a stroll along the golden shore.

Journey through the jungle in Sayulita

Sayulita’s crashing waves serve as a beacon to surfers of all skill levels. If you’re a total beginner, you can take lessons from a friendly instructor, or simply grab a boogie board and splash around in the shallows to your heart’s content. If that doesn’t satiate your appetite for seafaring, you could head out on a boat trip in search of majestic humpback whales, or join a sports fishing expedition. Back on dry land, the lush local jungle teems with exotic flora and fauna, and simply begs to be explored, whether by foot, mountain bike, or on horseback.

Arresting art and seductive spas

Sayulita’s star attraction is without doubt the beach, with its powder-soft sand and enticingly warm waters. Grab a perfectly-mixed pina colada from a seafront bar, and idle away the day. If that doesn’t sound self-indulgent enough, head to one of numerous heavenly spas, and treat yourself to an invigorating massage or long soak in a hot tub. Be sure to set aside time to explore Sayulita’s thriving arts and crafts scene – the town is packed with galleries showcasing colorful paintings, exquisite textiles. and pristine pottery, all hand-crafted by local artisans.

Gaze upon graceful butterflies, fragrant flowers, and multi-colored parrots, or trek past trickling freshwater streams in search of ancient rock carvings.
