Sayulita, Mexico, Surf Adventure
Fora’s Take

Sayulita is a small surf town a short bus ride away from Puerto Vallarta. It is a great adventure walking around on the cobblestone streets, getting the best tasting tacos you've ever had for extremely cheap prices and smoothies made with fresh fruit. The beach is beautiful and is the perfect place for beginner to advanced surfers.

Sayulita is a favorite place in the world for many. Here, you can really fall in love with surfing. The locals who surf there are super friendly and were always encouraging me or giving me tips. You can quickly make friends with many of the other surfers, you can surf all day together and then find a favorite hole-in-the-wall taco place to get some food. The beach is the perfect place to surf, the left side has smaller waves and a sand-bottom, perfect for beginners. The right side has bigger waves and a rock bottom, making it really fun for intermediate to advanced surfers. Your heart will long to go back there and ride these waves again.
