Sayulita is just 50 minutes away from Riviera Nayarit, a very charming town that will captivate you with its relaxed atmosphere. Sayulita has warm beaches that are perfect for surfing, swimming or if you just feel like unplugging for a while.
These are the 5 places you cannot miss if you visit Sayulita.
One of the most iconic places of Sayulita is Delfines Street, where colorful papel picado takes over the whole street. Here you can find plenty of restaurants and bars, or if you are feeling like buying a souvenir (or two) this is the right place to do it. Walking along Delfines Street you will find at the end the main beach: Sayulita Beach.
The name of this beach might be a little spooky for some to handle, but believe us, there's nothing to be afraid of. Actually, the Beach of the Dead is one of the most beautiful in Mexico. It has that name because to access the beach you have to pass through the main cemetery. It's a quick walk, so don't worry, the view is worth it!
Love Beach or Playa del Amor, is located in Islas Marietas National Park, one of the most visited destinations in Nayarit. Only 2 hours by boat from Sayulita, you can visit an island that is famous for its rocky and round formation, located almost at the tip of the island. Here you can swim in its crystal clear waters, snorkel and explore the island.
If you visit Sayulita between December and March you definitely have to take a whale watching tour, every year thousands of humpback whales arrive at the Pacific Ocean, this is one of the most impressive shows of nature and it's an experience you will never forget.
Approximately 30 minutes from Sayulita is Coral Island, one of the few places in the state of Nayarit with turquoise waters. You can't miss this beach, which is isolated from civilization, where only pelicans and blue-footed boobies live.
