Saulita, Mexico

We took a day trip to Sayulita, Mexico to explore and set our eyes on the town’s renowned artistries and beautiful beach. Sayulita is a small beach town located just 45 minutes south of Puerto Vallarta. The town is famous for its art scene, surfing, and delicious food! We spent our day wandering around the colorful streets and enjoying all of the local cultures that the town had to offer. 

Sayulita is a colorful town filled with art and creative people. The minute we arrived in the town, we were immediately taken by all of the beautiful colors everywhere! There are so many creative shops filled with local artists selling their paintings and other handmade goods. The town is also famous for its surfing, so there are always people hanging out on their boards enjoying the beautiful ocean view. There are many restaurants in Sayulita, but we decided to grab some snacks at the hotel at the far end of the beach called Villa Amor.

Villa Amor is a bohemian seaside dream! The eclectic collection of oceanfront hillside villas has fabulous ocean views including stunning views of Sayulita Bay, the coastline, the Sierra Madre jungle, and the fishing village down the road. This was a memorable hotel that I will certainly love to stay at next time I am in the area.
