Only 45 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, nestled in the foot hills of the Sierra Madre Occidental (Sierra madre meaning mother range) is the charming village of Sayulita. Surrounded by lush jungle and beautiful beaches, this little town has become the heart and soul of the Riviera Nayarit. In the 1940′s, Sayulita beach was a small fishing village, and by the 60′s, the surfers discovered this fabulous spot and have “put in on the map.”
Sayulita beach has become a mecca for surfers of all levels, but the truth is, it is more than a surfers heaven. It is a paradise that offers something for everyone.

Here, you will find fisherman patiently waiting in the waters just off the beach to provide the local markets and restaurants with the fresh catch of the day. Children can be seen playing in the cobblestoned streets lined with colorful trees, fruit stands, and Mexican art.
