Sayulita, Mexico is about one-hour north of the resort town of Puerto Vallarta. Once a quiet fishing village, today Sayuiita is packed to the gils with west coasters looking for a non-resort beach vacation in Mexico. Matt and I spent three nights in Sayulita around New Year’s Eve, and it was incredibly crowded.

One of the biggest draws of Sayulita – aside from it’s excellent dining – is it’s beginner surf waves.  The break crashes slowly and gently so it’s easy for a newbie to stand up without losing her balance. The actual beach in Sayulita is pretty dirty. With the quick increase of tourists, Sayulita hasn’t been able to take care of it’s ocean. I really hope they are able to make infrastructure changes to preserve this beautiful spot.

Happy New Year! Long time no post, I know. I was away for the holidays. Matt and I spent a week and a half in Mexico starting in Mexico City, and moving to Puebla, Oaxaca, Puerto Vallerta and Sayulita.

We had heard mixed things about some of the places on our itinerary before we set off, but we ended up truly loving everywhere we went, especially Mexico City. We had a wonderful trip and if you’re considering a visit to any of those places, let me know and I’d love to talk your ear off.

I’m going to combine the last two weeks into one post. Here it goes.
