We rented a one bedroom apartment on Marlin Street, a block south of the town square, spending 10 days in Sayulita. The trip was great, I would recommend it, lots of good points but you should be aware of some of the negatives. Our trip...More

We've visited several times over the past 10 years, but this time was probably our last. As far as the beach goes, yes it is a scenic setting with rugged jungle hills in the background. Be aware this is the open Pacific Ocean so waves...More

I've been visiting Sayulita since 2004 and in that time I have watched this 'sleepy fishing village' with only one payphone, to a town that has become more and more a popular tourist destination, with typical growing pains. Reviews from even as recent as 5...More

We hadn’t been to Sayulita for a number of years and were shocked by the number of people there. The beach is great and the break is great for beginners. Unfortunately the facilities can no longer serve the number of visitors creating problems with garbage,...More

We were there during Semana Santa, which is supposed to be their busiest week. Do bring your own blankets and towels, but we didn’t feel it was worth it to pack our own umbrella or tent. There are vendors that rent umbrellas in case you...More

I'm surprised about the comments of sewage. When I was there there were lots of people in the water swimming and I went in to cool off as well. I was only in Suyulita for the day but loved it. The beach was very crowded... More
