Sayulita is a fishing village of about 2,000 residents located 22 miles North of Puerto Vallarta. It is in the state of Nayarit, on mainland Mexico, about 200 miles west of Guadalajara.

The climate is tropical with a rainy season during the summer months. The ocean waters rarely dip below 74°F even during the winter and the sea life is abundant. Visitors can expect to see whales, sea turtles, colorful tropical fish and live coral.
The high season runs from late October through May, though, as the area grows in popularity, the season is getting longer.


Sayulita offers a tranquil and more truly Mexican experience than Puerto Vallarta but benefits from the city’s closeness. Puerto Vallarta’s airport makes visiting Sayulita a short flight from most cities.

Relaxing is the most popular sport for vacationers visiting Sayulita. For those who have energy to burn there are horses for rides along the beach or through the jungle, snorkeling or diving expeditions to the nearby, famous Marieta Islands, kayak rentals and tours, jungle hikes and mountain bike excursions, surfing, a golf-course 10 minutes away, a go-cart track and, of course, fishing.

There are restaurants in town that offer an array of food. Everything from traditional Mexican to Italian to American and French style food is available in Sayulita. All of the restaurants are very inexpensive,  the average meal costs about $8; for a satisfying dinner you can spend anywhere from $6 to $30.





A 4hr surf trip to a beautiful beach 20 mins away from Sayulita. Crystal clear waters, white sand beaches and world class surf instruction. Round trip transportation to and from Sayulita, with all equipment included. Choose between a surf trip or a surf lessons.


We meet at Lunazul Surf School to pick boards, sign waivers and settle payment. We get in our van and go to wherever the waves are good depending on swell, tides and winds. Usually we have 2-3 different spots to choose from and they all have amazing waves and warm water. Upon arrival to our surf destination your instructor/ guide will point out natural hazards such as rocks, currents, impact zone etc.

After your surf, we walk back to the van and drive back to our headquarters in Sayulita where we bid you farewell.
