SURFING AND OTHER ACTIVITIES IN SAYULITA
Sayulita is one of the best places in the world to surf. Staying at Casa Buena Onda means you can just walk down to the beach in 4 minutes. You don't need a car, there are plenty of waves and surfers in the water respect each other and prefer a tranquilo, "surfing is fun" vibe.
The waves are great for all skill levels including beginners, intermediate, and advanced surfers. Several Mexican surf champions have come from Sayulita.
You can rent boards on the beach for a day or week and there are lessons from friendly instructors available. The main break is a right peeling wave right in front of town. Picture yourself catching long rides from outside all the way to beach. One area further over from this main break has mellower waves and sandy bottom - this is where the beginners can get started. Perfect for kids too.
The second break is a "left". It is on the north side of Sayulita near the campgrounds. This is a faster breaking wave, with strong rip currents and rocks. This area is best for experienced surfers.
The best months of the year are December to early April but waves break all year long, even in summer. There are many other excellent breaks only a 10-15 minute car ride away that sometimes offer better waves and/or less crowds. Boat trips for the ultimate surfari are also easy for us to arrange.
We go surfing all the time so we are happy to see you get some waves!
Sayulita also has excellent fishing. Some of the more common fish include dorado (mahi-mahi), sailfish, marlin, tuna, red snapper, rooster fish, and bonita. Panga boats are available for rent for day or half day and besides a great view of the coastline you may also see whales, dolphins and turtles.
There are many great walking and hiking trails around the Sayulita area. At Casa Buena Onda we are close to several of the best secluded beaches. Both are fun easy walks through lush cool jungle. Plan a picnic or do some snorkeling at Playa Los Muertos. Playa Carracitos is only a 45 minute hike and offers a pristine uncrowded beach with majestic rocks on either side.
Horseback riding, bike tours, ATV tours, snorkeling, bird watching, or even shopping. And after all that activity we at Casa Buena Onda recommend a massage! When staying with us we would be happy to help you see the best Sayulita has to offer.
