36 hours in Sayulita, Mexico.
Sayulita is a charming beach town located on the Pacific Coast of Jalisco Mexico. If you’re planning on visiting Puerto Vallarta, you have to dedicate a day and night in Sayulita.
HOW TO GET TO SAYULITA
Fly into Puerto Vallarta International Airport and then take an hour Uber drive to Sayulita – costing no more than $40 USD.
Pro Tip: When you arrive to PVR and walk outside- do not wait in the airport line for a taxi. Instead, when you walk out of the airport doors – make a left. Walk for a minute or two and make another left. You’ll see a bridge that goes over the highway and on the other side you can pick up an Uber. It’s easy and fast compared to the long lines at the airport.
WHERE TO STAY
There are so many cute and modern boutique hotels and airbnb’s. I stayed in an Airbnb and it was perfect. Perfect location, clean, modern and equipped with air conditioning/wifi.
Check out the Airbnb I stayed in, here.
WHERE TO EAT
When it comes to food and drinks, there are a handful of places to check out. The town is small enough for anyone to stroll around and find something that fits your mood.
The best meals and drinks came from the streets and that includes a Cantarito.
THINGS TO DO IN SAYULITA
Shop In Sayulita Plaza
The Sayulita Plaza is filled with local shops and art galleries – you can easily spend a couple of hours here browsing all the local colorful goods.
TAKE A PICTURE UNDER THE FLAGS
You’ve seen this photo on the internet so don’t miss taking a photo on this famous selfie street with the iconic Sayulita flags.
Pro Tip: Wake up a little to beat the crowd. I was out and about around 8:30am and the town was so peaceful. Majority of store were closed but it was nice to see the town slowly wake up. The main street is empty and you can take your time getting the photo you want without the crowds.
SUNBATHE ON SAYULITA BEACH
Popular for surfing, Sayulita beach is also a great spot to sit back and relax. There’s some vendors walking around selling fruit, chips and drinks. You can easily turn your beach day into a picnic.
