FUN THINGS TO DO IN
PUNTA MITA, SAYULITA
Once upon a time, Sayulita was a remote surfie hangout on a hidden beach with just a handful of fishermen’s huts. Today, Sayulita is home to a throng of ex-pats and left-of-field Mexican hipsters from Guadalajara or Mexico City who have protected the village from high-rise resorts and developed its town square into a foodie haven.
Sayulita is home to beautiful beaches.
There are no Starbucks or McDonalds here, but just old-fashioned butcher shops, hole-in-the-wall cafes and courtyard restaurants.
The street stalls are safe, and mouth-watering too. Here smaller is better, slower is better–but that doesn’t make this village tranquil. Quite the opposite, Sayulita also has a pumping nightlife. But if you aren't up for all that tequila and singing with mariachis on rooftop terraces, the jungle offers a great barrier with several eco resorts, each offering their own personal version of Mexico.
Sayulita is often called the jewel of Riviera Nayarit , Mexico’s smallest state that begins on the outskirts of Puerto Vallarta. From the Puerto Vallarta airport it’s about a 45 minute taxi ride, or the villa chauffeur will pick you up in their suburban. Ask us for more of what to eat and where to stay.
The famous Original Fish Tacos Restaurant.
Central Sayulita is formed by a compact loop around its town square and a couple of main streets, but the stroll might have you salivating at the wafting smell of fresh, handmade tacos, hot chilies, sweet tropical fruits, and seafood. Organic fanatics and young chefs from across Mexico and around the world seem to have set up niches in Sayulita.
One of the first and most famous eateries to visit is the original Fish Tacos, a fairly smart but still rustic restaurant in the main square. The second best fish tacos in Sayulita probably come from one of the local ladies flipping from a street stall.
In the mornings you'll want an organic smoothie from one of the hole-in-the-wall juice bars like Orangy, run by a Mexican/British couple who are always concocting new blends of unusual fruits. Espresso coffee machines are all over Sayulita, too. For a good Australian flat white and huge breakfast that will remind you of Bondi, try Chocobanana in the town square.
