Hi There -
I am looking for recommendations on our Spring 2015 honeymoon to Sayulita. Our ideal vacation would be probably two days at the beach and wandering about town; a day deep sea fishing; horseback riding; zip lining; snorkeling; a sunset cruise; atv-ing; etc. From the sounds of it, Sayulita affords all of these activities in a quaint little laid-back town, which sounds utterly perfect. But I'm wondering, my fiancé has never seen the ocean and although I know it's not the Caribbean, does the Pacific provide beautiful blue views? Based on what we're looking to do on our trip, is 6 nights too long in the little village of Sayulita? We are certainly looking to relax and unwind after the wedding, but also don't want to get bored by day 4 either.
What are the options for transportation in Sayulita? Are there any shops that rent out mopeds/scooters or something along those lines, for getting around town?
My next question relates to accommodations. I am torn between the beautiful beachside views of Playa Escondida and the value/hospitality of Hacienda de la Costa. There are a lot of fantastic reviews of PE but also a lot of unfavorable reviews - the biggest for me being the over-priced food, given that nothing is included in the higher cost of the rooms. Whereas every single review of HDLC is excellent, breakfast is included, the rooms are a great price, and the hosts are incredibly helpful when it comes to planning activities. Clearly, it would seem HDLC is more favorable in my book but I'm struggling with the give and take of beachside views of PE. Do you think it'd be worth splitting our time at these two resorts? Maybe the first two nights at PE and the rest of our stay at HDLC?
We would greatly appreciate your input/suggestions! Thanks much.
