History of Sayulita
Sayulita, Nayarit is located about 25 miles northwest of Puerto Vallarta. The first settlers came to this beautiful village sometime in the 19th century to work for a large and important Hacienda (ranch). Its owner, Santiago Camarena, was originally from Sayula, a town in the Mexican state of Jalisco. Santiago felt homesick for his birthplace so he decided to change the name of the village from Santa Crucesita to Sayulita (“little Sayula”).
From Fishing Village to Super Surf Spot
Once known primarily as a fishing village, Sayulita is now known for its consistent surf break. Sayulita offers perfect waves for beginners (first timers), intermediate, and advanced surfers. No matter what time of the year you visit, the ocean waters will be warm.
Sayulita is one of few surfing spots where the waves break all year round. The best time to catch the waves is when the north swells hit from December through early April. Though the waves are smaller in the summer months, they can still provide short, thrilling rides.
There are various surfing lesson providers, surf trip providers and equipment rental stores in all over Sayulita, but we recommend WildMex as it is one of the Top 10 Surfing Schools in the world and the topmost of its kind in Sayulita.
Sayulita is also very popular for Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP). If you don’t like surfing or want something in addition to your regular surfing, Stand Up Paddle Boarding is for you.
If surfing is not your thing, no problem! Sayulita has many other aquatic activities for you to enjoy. The Playa de los Muertos is a small sheltered bay by the cemetery between Sayulita beach and Punta Sayulita. Protected by huge rocks from both sides, it’s perfect for swimming and is the most popular beach with the locals. Or, you can charter a fishing boat, go on a sailing expedition, enjoy whale watching or try your hand at scuba diving.
Sayulita is surrounded by lush jungle crisscrossed by many trails which are perfect for horseback riding, hiking, or mountain biking. Enjoy any of these activities while watching exotic birds and animals on the trail itself. More adventurous souls can zip through the canopy, enjoying panoramic ocean and mountain views at one of the nearby zip-line canopy tours.
Sayulita has become a shopper’s paradise. As you wander through the cobblestone streets, you’ll find trendy and traditional Mexican boutiques featuring handmade jewelry, Huichol yarn paintings and beadwork, custom designed t-shirts, artwork and one-of-a-kind Mexican crafts. World-class restaurants abound as do must-visit handicraft stores, coffee shops, taco stands, boutiques and spas.
Sayulita has everything you need to live comfortably: great bakeries, modern gyms, bars, restaurants, etc. And Puerto Vallarta – a very popular resort town known for its wide range of bars, restaurants and luxury hotels – is just 40km away.
