Sayulita, Mexico

What I love about Sayulita, besides its authentic Mexican beach town vibe, is that it’s perfect for any type of getaway! I have found myself going back to Sayulita over and over again.

inside scoop

  • No high heels! The streets are mostly cobblestone and even a wedge is a little dressy and difficult to navigate on the bumpy streets of this laid back beach town.
