SURF | SEE
- Playa La Lancha: Fun 1/2 day trip from Sayulita
- San Pancho: Cool town slightly more mellow than Sayulita with a beautiful beach and delicious food.
- Marietas Islands: Rad cave beach and guaranteed whale watching Jan- March
- If there’s south swell, surf Anclote at Punta Mita and watch the sunset
- Jungle/beach hikes around Sayulita’s beaches
- Peggy Lopez - A hidden gem of a bar right in Colonia Americana. It's tiny, 10 seats or so with awesome cocktails and a fun old-school vibe.
- Matilde Mi Amor - Rooftop bar, amazing cocktails, a great place to watch the sunset.
- Bar la Cava - a favorite old-school cantina! They serve free botanas (snacks) as you enjoy drinks and bands come through and perform.
- Casa Habita - An awesome boutique hotel in a killer location with a pool, super comfy rooms, and food.
- Comala - Amazing food, cool vibe, and killer coffee. Check out NIMIA next door after breakfast; a store full of locally made art, clothing, and jewelry.
- Biolento - Incredible food and coffee with outdoor seating in a beautiful shady garden under a massive tree. This is my post-Sunday skate sesh regular spot.
- DŪM - amazing Mediterranean cuisine with outdoor seating nestling amongst nature.
- Oystera - fresh oyster bar with lush interiors
- Jazamango - farm-to-table experience
- Hotel San Cristobal - A beautiful beachfront hotel. I recommend stopping in for a cocktail or dinner if you don't stay the night.
- The best surfing around Todos Santos is at Playa Los Cerritos and Playa San Pedrito. Playa Los Cerritos is about 20 minutes south of Todos Santos and has a gentle beach break. You can rent a surfboard and wetsuit from a few vendors along the beach, and some even offer lessons. We were here in May and only a few other surfers were at the beach.
