Sayulita Shopping: A savvy shopper's paradise

Over the past 10 years Sayulita’s shopping scene has changed drastically.  Sayulita Sol Jewelry, the first jewelry store, opened its doors ten years ago when Calle Delfin was still an unpaved dirt street. Today it is a palm-lined promenade hosting a plethora of shopping boutiques!  Sayulita has become a beautiful, bustling downtown with an incredible selection of shopping opportunities.  Where else can you find 45 locally-owned shops offering a diverse array of hand-selected merchandise within a four block radius?  Often people ask us what is there to do in Sayulita? Shop!


What is the best part of Sayulita's shopping scene? We would have to say the diversity.  There is a distinct style found in each Sayulita shop that can't be found anywhere else.  Another great part of Sayulita shopping is the central location of all the boutiques.  The majority of the stores are located within 4 blocks of each other, making Sayulita a great day-trip shopping destination.   Vistors certainly do not need a car to shop in Sayulita, and most of the sidewalks are handicap accessible.  One can visit almost all the best stores in a 2 hour shop-a-thon, with time for lunch and a margarita to spare.

Sayulita hosts “El Mercado del Pueblo”, a local farmer's market each Friday of the high season, November through April. If you happen to be in town on a Friday it is a great way to buy fresh local produce, flowers, locally prepared specialty foods, coffee, honey, hand-made body care products, chocolates, fresh baked bread, desserts etc.  Also showcased are a group of select artisans who live in Sayulita and make their own handicrafts. There is often live music or entertainers at the market and it is a great place to have lunch.

Sayulita has matured a lot over the last few years.  The new downtown Sayulita renovation created a shady, palm-lined, outdoor shopping experience. The level of design, fashion, and artistry found in Sayulita rivals what you could find in a hip city center.  If you are new to the area or haven't been back to Sayulita in awhile we highly recommend coming back to visit.  Whether you visit for a few hours or weeks it's worth the trip!
