Fun times. Good food, great drinks and it’s fun to watch the surfers. There are way too many vendors and you have to say no 5-8 times before they will leave. They will interrupt your conversation and put goods right in your face. I get...More

I kept expecting to see Charlie Manson pop out from a storefront. The town is worn out, tired and very dirty. Looks like those who sold it all in California set up residence. Not hung about this place will make you come back...

We took a ride up to Sayulita while visiting the Nuevo Vallarta area. The ride through the mountains was really nice. The town is small and very tourist friendly. There are lots of little shops and restaurants. The beach was very busy when we were...More

Sayulita is a hidden gem, we will definitely be going back! My only recommendation is not to go during the month of July. It was extremely hot and somewhat miserable to walk around in. Although it is considered their rainy season, it didn’t rain once...More

I went twice, Friday and Sunday (today). Today it was fine. Friday I did get a whiff of sewage smell, not in the main town or beach, but a few hundred yards away. So, I don't know how severe it was when you went, but overall... More
