Sayulita - Royal Club Realty - Real Estate in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit

Sayulita is a village about 25 miles north of Puerto Vallarta. The first settlers came to Sayulita to work for an important hacienda that produced coconuts for export. Its owner, originally from the Jalisco town of Sayula, decided to name the town “Sayulita”, which means “little Sayula”.

One of Sayulita’s main attractions is its consistent surf break. Waves can break in the bay all year round, but the best time to catch the waves are when the north swells hit, from December through early April. The waves are smaller in the summer months, but can still provide short, but thrilling, rides. The waves at Sayulita’s sand bar are gentle enough for first-time surfers, the right point break is great for beginners and longboard riders, and advanced surfers will enjoy the speedy left break.

If surfing isn’t your thing, there are numerous other aquatic activities to enjoy. The Playa de los Muertos, a tiny cove by the cemetery, is protected from the waves, making it a great place to swim and snorkel. You can also charter a fishing boat, go on a sailing expedition, or try your hand at scuba diving.

Sayulita is surrounded by lush jungle criss-crossed by many trails which are perfect for horseback riding, hiking, or mountain biking. More adventurous souls can zip through the canopy, enjoying panoramic ocean and mountain views at  Rancho Mi Chapparrita’s zip-line tour. Or book at surf lesson, surf trip or equipment rental with WildMex.

Many creative and artistic stores make Sayulita a shopper’s paradise. As you wander the cobblestone streets, you’ll find trendy boutiques featuring handmade jewelry, Huichol yarn paintings and beadwork, custom designed t-shirts, artwork and one-of-a-kind Mexican crafts.

The town is dotted with many little eateries and restaurants, ranging from inexpensive taco stands and burger joints to more formal establishments serving five-star, gourmet cuisine.
