The surfing mecca of Sayulita, Nayarit, has grown exponentially in the last decade. It used to be a sleepy fishing village that became an international hotspot for surfers and hippies who never left. It lies along the picturesque coastline about an hour north of Puerto Vallarta’s airport.

The town has a distinctly bohemian vibe that caters to surfers and people looking for a laidback lifestyle, at times with a bit of eccentricity.

This isn’t a resort community with malls and a golf course. For that, head to Nuevo Vallarta. However, it’s that small-town boho-chic vibe that keeps fans coming back yearly. Or buying real estate in Sayulita to call their own.

It is definitely a trendy place becoming more popular each year. There are toes in the sand, beachfront palapa restaurants, next to gourmet white tablecloth ones—many with a healthy edge. Sunrise yoga classes, organic shops, and hippie markets are the norm.

Many shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants radiate around the town’s main plaza. A small stream splits the town into two sections—the northern end is more residential and a bit quieter. Its homes are hidden in the hills with glittering views of Sayulita Bay.

The shores are peppered with coves and beaches, some for experienced surfers, others ideal for swimming.

There is a focus on the beach, but there are plenty of land-based opportunities for activities and exercise. The small town is enclosed in jungle interwoven by hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding trails. 

Sayulita is a natural beauty. Its wild landscape means there is a limited amount of land for development, which also means real estate prices are likely to keep rising.
