Sayulita – Mexico’s Premier Oceanfront Playground
Mexico is renowned for its breathtaking beaches, rich culture, exquisite weather and fantastic cuisine. What most occasional visitors don’t experience, however, is the remarkable sense of home, history and belonging that only its small, hidden communities can boast.
Punta Sayulita offers all those qualities, in one special place. Here, when you own your own Sayulita casa — with its palapa thatched roof, local stones and native hardwoods – you discover what it means to be part of a community, its land, people and traditions.
Whether your Sayulita house faces the village, with its cobblestone streets and stunning bay, or your home is nestled into a slope overlooking the sea, Punta Sayulita living means full immersion in the carefree pace and colorful diversions that are unique to this region.
Life here is a blend of ancient heritage and contemporary comforts, where simplicity reigns. Choose from a long list of outdoor adventures, such as bird and whale watching tours with Punta Sayulita guides, or explore local lore and traditions, all brought to life by our in-house ambassadors.
With its lush rain forest sierras, including two volcanoes and the western end of the Sierra Madre Occidental Mountains, all sloping gently down toward playa Sayulita, Nayarit is one of Mexico’s smallest yet most environmentally varied states.
Its political past is equally dramatic. Sayulita’s nearby Bay of Banderas was named for a 1530 skirmish described by Nuño Beltrán de Guzmán, a conquistador who helped establish “New Spain”, after he encountered the indigenous Cuyutecos. With roots that deep, there is historical meaning in every wave that laps on these shores, for beachcombers, adventurers and fishermen alike.
