The environmentally driven village of San Pancho, an hour north of the international airport in Puerto Vallarta, is having a moment. And it’s a good one, especially for real estate investments.

It’s around ten minutes from San Pancho to Sayulita, but they are worlds apart. Think of San Pancho as the smaller, laidback, mature older sister, whereas Sayulita is a trendy surfer’s paradise. San Pancho is a town where you can attend a temazcal ceremony after volunteering at a music festival.

The charming town has an international artsy flair with galleries, music and art festivals, and artist collectives on offer—it’s often referred to as the cultural capital of Nayarit. A big title for such a small town.

There is no hustle and bustle, so if you are looking for a little more excitement, you may have to find it in Sayulita.

The San Pancho beach is long and very wide—it rarely feels crowded. It’s suitable for surfers of all levels, but not so fabulous for swimming.

This coastal town’s friendly and down-to-earth vibe is very community driven, with an earnest give-back mission around every corner. Additionally, volunteering opportunities are endless.

It’s easy to find your mod-cons while still feeling like you are in small town Mexico. The closer you get to the beach, the more boutiques, shops, and restaurants you’ll find. With plenty of eateries focused on healthy, organic food, it’s not hard to find something to satisfy your palate.

Other than your feet, golf carts are the preferred mode of transportation—the town is small, and parking is limited.

When it comes to real estate in San Pancho, Mexico, traditionally, it was all single-family homes to the north and in the hills of the town. However, now there are gated communities, condos, and townhomes on offer.
