getting to sayulita
I have some concerns of getting to Sayulita from the Puerto Vallarta airport.
This is my first trip to Sayulita and I understand the only way to get there
from the airport in PV is by taxi. My flight arrives around 8:30 pm. Someone
said you should not take a taxi from the immediate airport area, but need to
cross a road to another (cheaper?) taxi stand. How safe is this and how much
will it cost me? Have there been any problems recently with these cabs?
Thanks for your help.
Re: getting to sayulita
It's probably too late now, but there are public busses from the PV bus station to Sayulita for about 20 pesos! They stop in Bucerias as well (so people coming in by bus from Guadalajara can be let off in Bucerias to transfer to the city bus).

For those moving to Sayulita, advise on moving to Mexico-
Moving to Mexico
I wanted to move to Mexico, but was afraid of how slow, difficult and expensive this could be after i spoke with many international movers. Most could not answer my moving to Mexico questions. Found out that i had to take my furniture all the way across the U.S. to Laredo Texas, and that this moving process would take up to 8 weeks.
Read in several Mazatlan forums about movingtomexicoguy or movingtomexicoguy.com
Spoke with Robert Hudson, he answer all my questions, flew to California, pick up all my things, got all my required moving documents in less than a day, and a few days later, everything was delivered to my new Mexican home with out any damage. Robert made my move very easy, he was very help full, acomodating and updated with all the moving requirements, and much more economical than any of the large international movers. He did everything for me.
I highly recomend him. Found on several forums many other testimonials from people that he also helped moved over the years, and i will try to post some as well.

Head to San Francisco
If you need a change of venue for a day you can head to the next town up the coast officially called San Francisco - however it's still called San Pancho by most of the locals. It's a sleepy little town with a huge quiet beach, a few cool little art studios and the pre-requisite beach side restaurant/bars. Be careful if you decide to go in the water in San Pancho - there's a pretty strong rip tide which accounts for the usually quiet beach.
Theoretically you can take a long walk up the beach to get to San Pancho from Sayulita, however property disputes have made this an unlikely and potentially dangerous trip. Better to have one of the local taxis drive you up there.
A Health Inspector's Nightmare
I saw the chef sneeze into his hands three times without washing them, then directly return to handling food. He used the same cloth to wipe his hands after handling raw chicken then wipe his sweaty forehead, then wipe his hands again. He went back to work (again) without washing his hands. This place is digusting.
Catch a Wave
Sayulita is a funky little beach town located about 35 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta. Compared to some of the other coastal towns nearby, Sayulita can get pretty congested with tourists overflowing on the beaches.
Sayulita caters to both veteran and beginner surfers, and on a good day you can find some pretty good surfbreaks. They have abundant surf rentals right on the beach. You can also take lessons and arrange daytrips by boat with some of the Surf Schools to the nearby breaks.
If you ask any veteran surfer, who surfs the Mexico coast regularly, where a good place to surf in Mexico is.....they will purposely send you to Sayulita (they'll do this to keep away the 'riff raff' from their sacred secret surf spots!!!)
We met up with some Aussie surfer dudes in Punta de Mita, and gave them an intro to the Mexico surf at Sayulita. The waves were fairly decent that day.
Go to Sayulita just for the experience----but nearby La Lancha is much better for the seclusion (but don't tell the surfers I told you !)
Fishing... Surfing... Dining... Everything!
I visited Sayulita for five days in May, 2008 and then returned in late June, 2008. I took the opportunity to chill out on the beach, take a few surfing lessons, eat some good food and just re-energize. Sayulita is a great little town for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle of Mexican life.
