Most travellers that frequent Mexico know Puerto Vallarta – it’s loved for its seaside golf greens and for being a hub for expat retirees and LGBT travellers alike.
Make your way a few miles up the coast and you’ll find Sayulita, a once sleepy fishing village, which over the last few decades has reinvented itself as a home to international artists, designers and renowned surfers. This off-the-grid location turned hippie paradise is now going through a third renaissance as an internationally inclusive creative hub.
GETTING AROUND It’s a walking town – you can get anywhere in Sayulita on foot. Buses to neighbouring towns also run multiple times a day.
To get to Sayulita, fly into Puerto Vallarta and catch a bus from the airport. Buses cost around $1 and take just over an hour. Taxis are quicker taking just 40 minutes but will set you back around $40.
