Sayulita, is a charming fishing village located farther north, just off the main highway to Tepic. This idyllic spot is what many feel Puerto Vallarta was like 30 years ago. Located on the southern end of a beautiful bay, the beach is nearly always devoid of tourists. A few retirement homes have been built along the southern end of the beach and in the hills surrounding Sayulita. There is a great bed and breakfast, a trailer park, a few guest houses and a few of the locals offer rooms for rent. There are beachfront restaurants that serve delicious fresh seafood which is caught locally. You can rent kayaks and surfboards on the beach. There is a surf break directly in front of the village and several more along the beach.
