Sayulita Resorts and Best Hotels in Sayulita Mexico

While Sayulita is the perfect place to solo travel Mexico, there are many things to consider before booking a Sayulita hotel or resort. Some areas of town are incredibly hilly, and others are bustling with noise and music late into the night.

This guide to Sayulita Mexico hotels and resorts covers what you should know before choosing accommodations. I’ve outlined Sayulita’s different areas to help you decide where to stay. I also have recommendations for the best hotels in Sayulita, from budget-friendly picks to luxury Sayulita resorts.

Where to Stay in Sayulita

Yes, Sayulita is small—you can easily walk around regardless of where you stay. However, some Sayulita places aren’t ideal for those with mobility issues or anyone who doesn’t enjoy walking up and down big hills multiple times a day.

Beachfront property is uncommon here, and there aren’t all-inclusive Sayulita Mexico resorts (you will find those in Puerto Vallarta or Nuevo Vallarta). Most oceanside properties consist of private villas, condos, or cute (but expensive) boutique Sayulita hotels. If you prefer to be on or near the beach, consider staying in northern Sayulita.

Downtown Sayulita

Downtown Sayulita is best if you want to be in the city’s heart without carrying your surfboard far to catch some waves. The pro of staying downtown is you’ll be within walking distance of Sayulita’s best restaurants, bars, shopping, and the central beach. On the flip side, this area can be exceptionally noisy, especially on the weekends.

North Side

The North Side area of Sayulita is quieter and a bit further from the action. You’ll be closer to the beach, ideal for surfers and those planning to spend much time by the ocean.

South End

Sandwiched between two beaches, Sayulita’s South End has more of a jungle than a beach town vibe. I have not personally stayed there as I prefer to stick to the North Side or downtown, but it looks like a nice area.

Best Hotels Sayulita Mexico: Luxury

If you have read my other blog posts about Sayulita, you know this hotel is at the top of my list of the best hotels in Sayulita Mexico. It is hard not to fall in love with this spot!

Sayulinda Hotel

While Sayulinda Hotel has traditional amenities like a pool and a bar, the minimalist decor and peacefulness make it unique. I 100% recommend Sayulinda Hotel Sayulita for a romantic getaway with a loved one.

Unfortunately, the internet is terrible at this hotel—it isn’t the best for remote workers or digital nomads. If you plan a vacation away from work and don’t need a strong WiFi connection, you will be okay.

Did You Get Travel Insurance Yet?

The Insurance companies I recommend are Hey Mondo and Safety Wing

Hey Mondo is great if you are looking for a great value flexible policy. They offer single-trip cover, annual multi-trip cover, and long-term travel cover. Safety Wing is great value, with monthly coverage starting at $45.08. It’s super easy to use, and it just renews each month. I currently use them as they offer me free cover for my son as part of my policy.
