The surf

Peak swell
Variable swell

The Sayulita-Punta Mita area is known best for its friendly, super fun waves. This is the perfect place to take your surfing to the next level. If you're just learning, mellow rolling point breaks will help you find your feet and ride the longest waves of your life. And if you're intermediate to advanced, bring a mid-length, fish, or shortboard to dial in your skills on long rippable points and quick, punchy beaches.

The summer season has consistent surf as the southern hemisphere swells march up toward Mexico from April through September. October through March is when the Northern hemisphere fires up and sends the swell from the north. No matter the season, we can always find a fun point or peak to have a blast.

Known for its consistent river-mouth surf break, roving surfers "discovered" Sayulita in the late 1960s with the construction of Mexican Highway 200.

Today, Sayulita is a prosperous, growing village of approximately 7,000 residents. Hailed as a popular off-the-beaten-path travel destination, Sayulita offers a variety of activities such as horseback riding, hiking, jungle canopy tours, snorkeling and fishing. Still, a mecca for surfers at every skill level and every age, this quaint town attracts discriminating tourists with numerous art galleries and restaurants.

Sayulita has a curious, eclectic quality, frequented by native Cora and Huichol peoples, traveling craftsmen as well as international tourists. This town breathes a cosmopolitan air. You'll hear a young woman speaking German, a young man waxing his board while chatting in English or a small child telling her father what she wants for breakfast in French.

When dusk falls on the beaches of Sayulita, you will see floating spirits. Silhouettes skim across the water; bodies dive and emerge awaiting the next wave, facing the sunset, painted in the dazzling tones of the sun's descent into the sea. Surfers participate in the sport they love, which happens to be one of the main attractions of this traditional fishing village.

From all over the world, surfing enthusiasts flock to these beaches like a sacred site, with their boards on their backs, their golden skin glistening and hearts full of a passion for the sea.
