This was our 4th time to Sayulita, and it was out best visit yet! We are grandparents who visit Sayulita with our son and his family (ages 10, 7, & 1). The exquisitely decorated house is well designed to provide good privacy and separation for two families. It is well built, equipped, and maintained. We especially appreciated the filtered water, the daily cleaning service, and the full set of stainless steel heavy duty cookware. The property sits at the top of a small hill (yes, one must walk up a fairly steep but short hill), and it is only a couple of blocks from the beach, main square, and grocery shops. You do not need to rent a car! Jose Ramos Transportation is reliable and dependable! The best places to be in Sayulita are located at the south end of the town where Casa Sonadora is located. Our 10 year old grandson took a 2-hour surfing lesson, and that’s all that he needed to become a ‘surfer dude.’ Eric was terrific! He met us when we arrived and was there when we departed and was readily available during the week if we needed him. Couple of tips: Bring pesos or a debit card to access ATM machines (Eric says use only the ones at either of the Oxxo stores or at Don Pedros), as few places take credit cards, and those that do usually impose a surcharge. The wood fired pizza place in the center of town on the main drag is very good, and there are many small family run lunch places for tacos and burritos. Choc Banana is a great place for breakfast. And don’t miss the authentic French bakery operated by a guy who says he came over from France 25 years ago. Fresh croissants and baguettes every morning! Its located on the street that runs along the north side of the town square a block down from and across from the well-known fish taco place. On your way from the airport, ask your driver to take you to the new Mega store on the north side of Puerto Vallarta, not the old one near the airport, although they are both good. Sayulita is a really neat ‘happening’ little Mexican village, not a flashy resort spot. It is safe, and the local residents are friendly.
