Where to day trip from Punta Mita?


You will fall in love with the magical seaside surfer town of Sayulita. The streets are decorated with colorful flags and garlands, and you will find stores filled with one-of-a-kind pieces like handwoven coasters, hand painted skull dolls and hand carved pottery. Sayulita is full of vibrant locals and chic Mexican art shops, markets and boutiques. You could spend hours here marveling at the local artisans making beautiful things on each corner. It is just a 20-minute drive from Punta Mita and worthwhile visiting to indulge in some colorful Mexican culture.

Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta is perfect for touristic activities and city life. It’s much busier and larger than Punta Mita and Sayulita, so it takes a little longer to explore; so why not stay in one of our luxurious Mexican villas in the town? We have many beautiful fully staffed homes in Puerto Vallarta from which to choose.
