It was the best 5-day vacation we've taken yet! Everyone we talked to there, wished they had booked for more days. My favorite thing, besides the seclusion and private beach was our outdoor shower and toilet - you could gaze at the ocean while in/on either!!! (The Studio) Although the resort was a bit more pricey - it was truly worth every penny. We saved money by cooking our own breakfasts and sometimes lunches in our kitchenette, but enjoyed every tasty dinner we could at the amazing restaurant! Although our goal was complete relaxation, we did hop a local bus north up to La Penita?? I think, to the fantastic Thursday morning market they do. Definitely worth the 30 minutes bus ride and the experience of standing on the edge of the highway waiting for some bus to stop! Oh, and the best tip for getting to Sayulita - TAKE THE BUS! It cost my husband and I 40 pesos total - is that $4?? It was incredibly easy, walk out the airport doors, cross over the pedestrian overpass, and then wait underneath it on the other side for one of the million busses zipping through. Get on the one with Sayulita written on the front windshield. Done. We then taxied from town to the resort for $7. Both of us loved the feel of the place - very well looked after, remote, but still accessible to town, delicious food, helpful staff! We'd go back in a heartbeat.
