Sombra at Cinética in Sayulita, is an exclusive guesthouse tucked into a pristine section of jungle between two secluded beaches, Playa Patzcuaro and Patzuarito. Cinetica is on the path less beaten. Many visit Sayulita for the vibrant village experiences. Some come for the surfing. Others come for serenity. Cinetica is that rare place that offers all of it. Cinetica can be your place to land and unwind… or your stepping off point for adventure.

Beautifully integrated amid towering native palms within an ecological preserve overlooking the ocean, Cinética is an instant refuge. Stay in one of the 4 independent guest suites for a few nights or the entire winter. Each spacious suite has a private entrance, a fully equipped kitchen and enjoys the use of the Saline Pool heated by solar panels, the oversized pool terrace and BBQ. At Cinética you can spend carefree days by the pool or wander down to one of the area’s secluded beaches.

Sustainability: We live our commitment to sustainability by relentlessly orienting towards less. Less conventional energy. Less plastic. Less stuff. At Cinética, we have integrated: 

  • Solar + Storage Solution allows Cinetica to be grid and CFE independent.
  • 4 phase water purification system that treats every drop on the property: showers, faucets and even the pool!
  • Saline Pool Heated by Solar Panels

La Casita del Jardin is 1 of 4 spacious suites on the Cinética property, each containing 1 bedroom and 1 bath. While each of our rooms are spacious, and feature western-style full kitchens plus laundry facilities, we only book for single or double occupancy. Why? Because, with a maximum of 10-12 adult guests at any time, regardless of how dynamic you make your visit, you’ll always have an oasis to which you can retreat, recover and prepare to re-launch.

A getaway. A retreat. A springboard. Cinetica is a base for doing anything… or absolutely nothing. It is the perfect setting in which to enjoy your Sayulita vacation, whether you choose to venture into Sayulita or prefer to receive in-home deliveries of delicious restaurant take-out and groceries, you'll be happy to know that Sayulita is within easy reach.

I'm So Happy We Ended Up Here
I'm So Happy We Ended Up Here reads a sign above the bar & it perfectly describes how we felt about Hacienda de la Costa. From the moment we arrived inside the gates, we knew that we had found a very special place. Our hosts made us feel so welcome, hosts engaging stories of his life before HDLC. It is small (only 5 adult only rooms) however each room is spacious & airy and the property is spectacular - beautiful tropical foliage, stunning sunset views, a perfect pool and no noise except for the sounds of the jungle & the distant surf. The Hacienda is somewhat remote (we would rent a car next time) however you can walk into Sayulita and there are 2 nearby beaches that are practically deserted & absolutely breathtaking. The owners have opened their home to a number of rescue animals so there is often a dog or cat nearby for a pat or a cuddle which makes it feel even more like home. It truly was the perfect place to relax, unwind & escape. If we could, we'd go back tomorrow ..

A Secluded Paradise
My girlfriend and I were eager to arrive at Hacienda De La Costa. Having spent the first part of our vacation in Puerto Villarta, we were excited to spend the remainder of our time relaxing in a more secluded location. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the owners and operators. They were helpful and kind to us from beginning to end.

Some of the highlights were relaxing by the wonderful pool, making friends with the other guests.

We enjoyed walking the 2 mile beaten path to town each day through the jungle. Most times we would take a taxi one way as it was most convenient at times. Other nights we would take the short walk down to the secluded beach where we would enjoy the sunsets without the hustle and bustle of crowds on the beaches in Sayulita.

We made great four legged friends on our trip as the hosts had 4-5 adorable dogs that were eager to come say hello when down by the pool. Not going to lie, we had thought about taking one home at one point ;)

Overall the trip was pleasant and a great escape from our priorities back home. We are excited to return again and build upon the relationships and experiences we had made. In my final thoughts I will say that the hosts help to make this stay truly unforgettable. Always helpful and onsite, they work hard to make sure your experience is one that you will take with you for a very long time.

Hidden Gem
What a nice and lovely place, the perfect location as you can go easy to Sayulita town (a car is needed or a taxi) but you're staying in a very quiet, peaceful place. Here you'll feel the jungle, the ocean... and a family! All make a great job. It's a perfect place to relax and forget about the job-stress. During my stay, I went to Sayulita the first 2 days: that's enough because the town is beautiful and you can eat great, but there was a lot of people so after that I just wanted my peace back (it was Semana Santa). Here at HDLC you can forgot about holydays full of people, we drive to the beach (3 min) well equipped and there was 2 more "umbrellas" with families there, after a couple of hours nobody. The road to HDLC is so beautiful we stopped to take some pictures. So I can't recommend this place enough, and I hope it continues like this.

Best placeever
We enjoyed our fourth stay at Hacienda de la Costa (HDLC) in early March. We keep returning because this is a little piece of paradise. We adore the premises, have been privileged to get to know the hosts over several years, and have a treasure trove of good memories from our visits to HDLC. The peace and quiet, bird watching, glimpses of whales and dolphins off-shore, and serenity of HDLC make for a soothing vacation. The pool is actually heated, unlike most you'll find, with solar panels discreetly tucked away nearby, ensuring that it is always comfortable yet refreshing. Hosts will help with advice, arrangements and directions, but will also leave you to your own devices if you know what's up. We will be back.

Amazing Stay
We had an amazing stay at Hacienda de la Costa. It was even better than we expected. The hosts were great and provided helpful information, with a perfect balance of communication and privacy. We booked the Arboles room, which was very comfortable and had a full kitchen and living room. The grounds are gorgeous. We were VERY happy with our booking and our decision to stay just far enough away from town to avoid the mayhem and noise. OH, and don't even get me started about the access to basically private beaches....

Secluded Paradise
Off the beaten track, yet easily accessible. Probably best to have a car for the most freedom, but if you just want to relax and stay at the Hacienda, it is perfection. The views, hosts, pool, and accommodations are the BEST!
Having friendly dogs was a plus for us as we missed ours. Steve and Terri are always available, extremely helpful, and exceptionally amazing hosts. We can't say enough about the charm of this place

Favorite place..ever!
Dreamy oasis away from the noise and crowds. Steve and Terri are incredible hosts who make you feel safe and comfortable and will help with any arrangements you need to make. Terri is an amazing cook, and after you've eaten one of her delicious hearty Mexican-influenced breakfasts you will be ready to conquer the day. Walk through the jungle road to town or to the private beach. If you need a taxi to get out, Steve will call one for you, or you can rent a car. (We recommend a Rav 4 or Hyundai Creta.) There are many things to see and do in the area. Oh...and did I tell you this was our 4th visit to Hacienda de la Costa and it won't be our last if we have anything to say about it!!

Bio Please mention SayulitaLife
We have traveled, lived and worked, in many places around the world. France. Australia. Spain. Nepal. England. Holland. And all over the US: Idaho, Colorado, New York, California, Washington and New England. Having long dreamed of raising our family in a small beach community in a different country, Sayulita spoke to us in ways that few places have. Our desire to live here was immediate. Less clear was how to make that happen! When we met Steve and Terri, retired expats whose vision and commitment built Hacienda de La Costa into the jewel that it is, the connection was clear. Respecting what they had created, yet wanting the small hotel to reflect our personality and imagination, we have re-christened it Cinetica (Spanish for “Kinetic”); energy through motion. We hope you love visiting us as much as we will love hosting you, inviting you into our small slice of paradise, and sharing with you why we chose Sayulita for our family.
