Surfing in Sayulita, Mexico


For surfer-lovers looking for a vacation away from the hustle and bustle of city life, the hip beach town of Sayulita, Mexico, in the Riviera Nayarit is the perfect spot. Sayulita beaches are known for their terrific waves ideal for all surf skill levels, whether one is just starting out, is an intermediate surfer, or is highly skilled and experienced.

Wave breaks occur in the bay year round, although December through April are the best months for surfing since this is when the north swells hit. In the summer, which is low season, the waves of Nayarit are smaller (about 3 feet high) but still yield a long surf and twenty second rides.
