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.

Where to Stay
Book a house through SayulitaLife. I recommend all of these and there are many more to choose from:
- Buton y frijole
Where to Eat and Drink
- Don Pedro's: Lunch or dinner -can also reserve lounge chairs on the beach with service for day time. Beach can be crazy crowded during Easter (Semana Santa).
- Sayulita Cafe: Yum. It's tiny so make ressies.
- Northside Cafe: Breakfast
- Chocobanana: Breakfast and smoothies on town square.
- Burrito Revolucion!
- Mar Plata: Great food in San Pancho- the town just North. If you go on a Saturday you can catch the polo match just before.
What to Do
- Revolucion del Sueno!
- Pachamama -must have black pearl jewelry, caftans, dream catchers, leather bags
- Also these are the original gypset ladies! They are fabulous and their story is even more so!
- Yoga: MexiFit! (Palapa just above town overlooking ocean)
- Zip lining and horseback riding: Mi Chaparrita 329-291-3112
- Turtle Camp: Check the beach at 6:30 PM every evening next to Las Hamacas compound for turtle release.

- Most houses include a gold cart rental but if not, book it in advance! Contact Roy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Babysitter: Sayulita Childcare: 917-748-0977
- 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.
- Summer is rainy and humid and Easter weeks is busy! Best months November through May.
