Sayulita Sunset Sailing Cruise

Pulling into the Marina Riviera Nayarit in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, just 15 minutes from Sayulita, we walk up the first dock on the right to a 50-foot schooner – more accurately, a traditional trimaran – that reminds of days of old when pirates would sail the seven seas.  It’s as long as its sails are tall and has a cabin (main salon) lined with rare Rangoon teak wood panels, uncustomary on those modern fiberglass boats.

Two steps lead up to the boat and a hand reaches out to help us aboard.  Looking up, I’m greeted politely by a thin, gray-haired man with a strong handshake, welcoming us to his pride and joy: Sayula 1, the first boat ever to operate out of Sayulita.  He’s a bit rough around the edges, and I imagine him wearing a black patch over one eye with a yellow sash around his waist and a long sword at his side.  Could he be a pirate?  This man of the sea is an original with 25 years’ experience sailing the ocean blue.

Sail Away

Once we’re all aboard, a low rumble breaks the sound of rolling waters, and we begin to glide back from the dock as if floating on air.  Passing more contemporary boats in the marina on our way out to sea, feeling the soft sway of the boat and smelling the fresh ocean air, we sense the history of this sailing trimaran and realize we have stepped aboard a legend.  Before long, the marina is behind us and the wide Pacific Ocean draws us in.

Port side (on the left), we begin to pass colorful buildings of all shapes and sizes in the towns that line Bahia Banderas Bay on the Pacific coast of Riviera Nayarit; behind us, San Pancho, then Sayulita, Bucerias, Nuevo Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta and finally the open sea.  Starboard side (on the right), we ride near the land, passing Punta de Mita in the distance and the rolling hills of tropical rainforests in varying shades of green peppered by rock barriers that extend into the ocean.


Sailing On…

The land begins to fade in the distance as the ocean grows wider and the rolling waves draw us out.  With the wind in our sails, we follow the distant shadow of the land and continue starboard when rounding a bend north of La Cruz, a lovely beach cove opens up to a small gold beach where seagulls and pelicans perch on rock beds welcoming us.  Anchoring the boat a short distance from shore, we swim to the beach and relax awhile having this slice of heaven all to ourselves.

If only we could stay here forever, but alas, we are hailed back to deck and climb aboard to enjoy some snacks, drinks, music, and friendly conversation.  We float for a while and then head back in the direction we came, spotting a dead sea turtle along the way: a tragic loss to nature.  We mutter sadly about her death and are quiet for a time as we journey back to the marina.  The ride is calm and smooth as the sun sets on a lovely Nayarit day. Hues of red, orange, yellow, and purple fade into gray as we say good-bye – for now.

Take a boat tour aboard a traditional trimaran for a Sunset Sailing Trip from Sayulita, Mexico, in the Riviera Nayarit.


Surprising Chacala, Mexico

Charming Chacala

You may not have heard of it yet, but the quaint beach town of Chacala is starting to catch on as an enjoyable vacation spot in the Riviera Nayarit on the Pacific Coast of Mexico.  Just a 45-minute drive north of Sayulita, Chacala is growing in popularity. This is largely due to the construction of a paved road in 1998, which made the town much easier to find.

Before the road was built, Chacala was just a sleepy fishing village, where fishing and selling fish were the locals’ only livelihood.  The town was especially known for the large shrimp caught to the north of town in Chacalilla Bay, although it has been suggested these were actually lobsters which were once abundant here.  In fact, the word ‘Chacala’ derives from the Náhuatl (pronounced “now what”) language, meaning “place of the shrimp” or “large shrimp.”

After the road was built, it attracted the growth of new tourism businesses, increasing work opportunities for its residents.  Now the town includes a few hotels, shops, restaurants and popular beach activities, such as sport fishing, snorkeling in Las Cuevas cove’s underwater volcanic caves, expert surfing on Caleta Bay, turtle watching year round, and Humpback whale watching between December and March.

Cultural Attractions

View of Chacala Beach

With 52 indigenous languages, Mexican culture is equally diverse.  Náhuatl, the language of a dominant ethnic group, the Nahuan, includes the Aztecs, Toltecs, and other indigenous cultures.  The nearby town of Altavista was inhabited by the Tecoxquin (Tequectequi) group, which includes the Cora and Huichol indians who still inhabit Nayarit. Containing 800 petroglyphs (rock engravings) dating back to 2300 BCE, this small archaeological site is still considered sacred by the Huicholes.

An interesting cultural and language twist is on the terms Chac Mool, Chac, and Chacala. The words sound similar but are not even related.  Chac Mool (meaning “thundering paw”) is a statue of Toltec origin, a Mesoamerican civilization who invaded the Maya, and the statue only received its Mayan name from the archaeologist who excavated it.  Chac (also Chaak or Chaahk) is the Mayan god of thunder, lightening, and rain.  Interestingly, the Maya were an empire in southern Mexico and Central America far from Nayarit.

Appropriately, Chacala is a native Náhuatl word of Aztec origin and is befitting of the delightful fishing village that carries its name.

Delight in the Chacala Surprise of Chacala, Mexico in the Riviera Nayarit.


Beachfront Surf Shops & Restaurants in Sayulita

The spice of life is variety, and Sayulita is the ‘spice’ of Mexico life. A vacation in this hip beach town provides plenty of variety, whether you’re looking for a Sayulita rental, restaurant, bar, shop, or activity.  (The most popular activity is surfing.)  There are many charming small Mexican towns in the Riviera Nayarit, but Sayulita has a unique character all its own with plenty of options.

Selecting a Sayulita Rental

The most well-known rental is a hotel, and the town offers various options to suit traveler preferences.   Every tourist is unique and may travel to the same destination for different reasons.  Surfers may accept simple accommodations like a beach cabana, bungalow, or tent whereas a couple may prefer a finer room with modern amenities and excellent service.  This diverse town offers both.

Hotel La Casona in Sayulita

A lesser known Sayulita rental, but also a great option, is a house or condo that offers a choice of rooms – ideal for a group or family vacation. House and condo rentals provide one, two, three, four or more rooms; one, two, or more bathrooms; a kitchenette or full kitchen, including appliances, pots and pans, dishes, and silverware; one or more swimming pools and Jacuzzi; air conditioning; and housekeeping services.

Choosing a Rental Location

Once you decide on the type of Sayulita rental you prefer, you need to choose the rental location.  Although it is a beach town, not every hotel or house is on the beach, but being a small town, most vacation rentals are within easy walking distance of the beach. An ocean view room may be more your style than a beachfront unit or maybe a house surrounded by tropical gardens instead of the sound of Pacific Ocean waves lapping ashore.

Hillside Sayulita Rental

Since residents and travelers range in age from young to retired, different parts of town are better suited for differing lifestyles.  The younger crowd may prefer to stay in town or on the main beach where all the action is: restaurants, bars, and beach parties.  Couples, families, and retirees may rather stay in a more remote area on the hillside, outlying sections of the beach, or the outskirts of town, all of which are viable alternatives.

The choice is yours.

Consider a Sayulita Rental that’s right for you in Sayulita, Mexico, on the Riviera Nayarit.


If you are a surfer, chances are you have heard of Sayulita MexicoSome people claim it is one of the top 10 spots in the Pacific to catch good waves. Clearly, there are plenty of folks who believe this, even if you judge the attitude simply by the number of surf shops and surfing school in Sayulita that cater specifically to newbies wanting to learn how to surf.

Sayulita, on the Riviera Nayarit, is only one hour from the busy beach resort town of Puerto Vallarta.

Known for its surfing, Sayulita is really a hippy town with a feeling of throwback into the sixties.  These days, the older hippies have retired over to San Pancho, so Sayulita is full of the next generation “kid hippies”, those teen and twenty somethings with no money looking for an adventure.

So if you want a surfing Mexico Vacation, Sayulita on the Riviera Nayarit may be the choice for you!



Welcome to the new Rivera Nayarit Fun website. our goal here is to help you find out more about the region just north of Puerto Vallarta, now being referred to by the Mexican Tourism Board as Riviera Nayarit.

Whether you come to Sayulita for the Surfing, Lo De Marcos for the fishing, or San Blas for the birding, there is plenty to do along the Pacific Coast of Mexico’s state called Nayarit.

Come Travel to Mexico for Vacation.
