Just a ten-minute walk or golf cart drive away from Haramara Retreat is downtown Sayulita! Known for its beautiful beaches, great surf, and laid-back lifestyle, this charming coastal town is absolutely worth a visit. Wander the bohemian streets where you will find various art galleries and Mexican handicraft shops. Find a souvenir for your return home or walk along the shoreline and admire the intrepid surfers awaiting their next big wave. Below are our top five reasons to spend some time downtown on your next Mexico Yoga Retreat!
The beaches in Sayulita offer an exceptional experience. Whether you're unwinding on the exclusive shores of Haramara, taking a leisurely stroll along the charming two-mile downtown stretch, or exploring some of the lesser-known "hidden" beaches, you're bound to be pleasantly surprised. You might even have the chance to catch a glimpse of a dolphin or a whale!
Art & Culture
Sayulita's intimate, tight-knit community and its small-town ambiance have preserved Mexico's rich cultural heritage. Within the town, you'll discover numerous art galleries showcasing a diverse array of treasures sourced from all corners of Mexico, including hand-woven textiles, ceramics, paintings, and indigenous Huichol art.
Surf & SUP
Sayulita is undeniably a haven for surfers, providing a range of lessons and board rentals to suit all levels. The bay boasts a gentle break that's ideal for novices while still presenting plenty of excitement and challenges for experienced surfers. Additionally, Sayulita is an excellent locale for picking up Stand Up Paddleboarding skills.
Sayulita is renowned for its vibrant displays of "Ojos de Dios" and "Papel Picado" (colorful flags) adorning its main streets. In 2019, Sayulita made history by showcasing the largest number of "Ojos de Dios" ever, and we're committed to carrying on this tradition annually. The array of colors is an instant mood lifter!
Although the cuisine at Haramara is delightful, Sayulita offers a plethora of options to tantalize your taste buds. From delectable street tacos to fresh, locally sourced seafood, and a plethora of smoothie bars, there's something for everyone. For those seeking a break from Mexican fare, a variety of Italian, Mediterranean, and fusion restaurants provide an opportunity to try something new and different.
