On Mexico’s gorgeous Pacific coast, the tiny town of Sayulita is no longer the secret surfing spot it was in the 1960s. It’s now a fully-fledged international favorite for a beachside vacation, which means that every day your acommodation options improve. Here is a list of hotels currently on our radars as some of the best in Sayulita.
A family of French surf enthusiasts run this hotel, and Petit Hafa Hotel is known as one of the chicest places to lay your head in Sayulita. The décor is colorful and warm, and there are lots of common spaces for enjoying the sun and the company of other hotel guests. Best described as bohemian chic, the hotel has a jewelry boutique whose wares are created by one of its owners, an onsite bar with great signature cocktails, and is just a few blocks from Sayulita’s main beach.
Rock and roll-themed rooms just steps from the beach, free breakfast and an atomosphere that’s lively but not annoying—welcome to the Hotel Sayulita Central. Quite possibly the most centrally-located hotel on this list, Central puts you in the middle of everything. This hotel is funky and fun, and great for a group of friends traveling together who really want to get into the vibe of the city.
The Aurinko Bungalows are one of Sayulita’s primier boutique hotels, offering one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and penthouse bungalows, each with a full equiped kitchen, living and dining areas, and wifi throughout. The bungalows are located in downtown Sayulita right off the main square, so you are minutes from the town’s main beach and the shopping and restaurants downtown. Aurinko is also home to the Heart Shala, a beautiful wood and palapa yoga studio that offers classes throughout the week for guests and the public.
