About Sayulita
Sayulita is a peaceful, sunny Mexican beach village, only twenty-six miles from the Puerto Vallarta airport, but located in the adjacent Mexican state of Nayarit (PV is in Jalisco), on a different Pacific coast bay, providing an experience distinct from that of a resort city. Sayulita is home to a few hundred people descended from a handful of families, with cobblestone streets and a beach unspoiled by large scale development. The town square is home to a small Catholic church, hosting colorful celebrations during many religious and national holiday weeks. Over the past few decades, many new vacation homes have arisen, as have many new restaurants and off-beach hotels, quaint by tourist standards. You can rent surfboards and other equipment, schedule jungle expeditions, fish or explore by boat, all arranged at the house with your hostess.

There are several ATM’s and money exchanges just off the main plaza in Sayulita.
