The town of Sayulita is one of the most attractive destinations on Mexico’s Pacific coast not only for its rustic character but also because of the possibility it offers to surf or swim on the “Beach of the Dead,” which one accesses by passing through a cemetery.
The town of some 2,300 residents is located on the border of Nayarit and Jalisco states, some 40 kilometers (25 miles) from Puerto Vallarta.
The beauty of its beaches and its relaxed pace of life for more than a decade have been attracting tourists from Canada, the US and Europe – and more recently Australians – Richard Zarkin, the general manager of public relations for the Nayarit Riviera Visitors and Conventions Office, told EFE.
According to travel agencies, the town was Mexico’s most-visited destination in 2016 and it is continuously recommended on the Internet as one of the country’s must-see spots.
Sayulita was declared a “magic” town in 2015 for its cobblestone streets, cafes, pizzerias, art galleries and small hotels.
Many of its residents are avid surfers, and they regularly show local children and tourists how to “ride a wave.”
The town has produced a number of national and international surfing champions, including Adrian Rodriguez, a third-generation surfer.
