How to Spend 1 Day in Sayulita

How to Spend 1 Day in Sayulita

Compact and relaxed, the surf town of Sayulita is easy to explore in just one day; it also serves as the gateway to the Bahía de Banderas region. Here’s how to see the best of Sayulita and beyond in just 24 hours.

Morning: See the Center

Get an early start and take advantage of the relatively cool mornings to wander around the streets of Sayulita. Stop at one of the town’s cute cafes for breakfast before browsing the boutiques that line its cobbled streets. Once you’ve had your fill of the center, explore the jungle and discover secluded beaches on a sightseeing tour or enjoy a private photography session to take home more than just memories. 

Afternoon: Take a Boat Ride

Take to the water this afternoon on a boat ride. Opt for a whale-watching excursion beside a biologist guide or head to the Marietas Islands, where you can go bird-spotting, snorkeling, or scuba diving. These half-day trips are ideal for time-pressed travelers and some excursions even combine whale-watching with either snorkeling or a trip to the Marietas islands. Alternatively, break a sweat and see another side to Sayulita by mountain biking through the jungle.

Night: Dine and Drink in Style

After a busy day exploring Sayulita and its surrounds, relax with an evening of dinner and drinks in the town center, where you’ll be able to take your pick of restaurants; be sure to sample local delicacies such aspescado zarandeado (grilled fish) and octopus tostadas. After dinner, visit a bar for cocktails overlooking the sea or order a glass ofraicilla (a local agave spirit) before heading to bed.
