Just about an hour up the coast from Puerto Vallarta, you’ll find the bohemian beach town of Sayulita. This chilled-out town in Nayarit attracts surfers, yogis, and artists looking for a more laid back vibe.
If you’ve never been on a surfboard before, this is a great place to learn. The waves are pretty calm and there are plenty of instructors available for hire.
If you want to get off the beach for a bit, you have a lot of different options. Sayulita is surrounded by jungle, where you can enjoy some hiking, horseback riding, or cruising on an ATV.
Visiting between November and January gives you the chance to head out on a boat trip to do a bit of whale watching.
