📬 Reader Mail: Trisha, your blog is helping me a lot to plan my travels to Sayulita so thank you so much! I just booked on Vrbo and I was wondering if this is a platform that you guys use in Sayulita? I heard it is not pretty common and every country uses a different platform.
I just need your advice regarding the location of the Vrbo I rented and I also want to ask if you can recommend Sayulita hotels over apartments? We need a hotel that is near the center without renting a golf cart or taking a taxi.
What are the best Sayulita hotels you recommend? Can you please give me a description of the location and prices? Thank you for all your service!

What to expect from Sayulita hotels
Sayulita is a small town so before booking, you have to know that most Sayulita hotels in the center are boutique hotels and mainly for 2 people.
Buildings in Sayulita are not that big and there is always an impression that we are a resort area. Although there are big hotels in Sayulita, we are not the all-inclusive type of town.
The most common accommodation type in Sayulita is serviced apartments or boutique hotels. The Airbnbs are also popular because they are located in the jungles where you have a great view of Sayulita.
To date, there are no more properties to buy in Sayulita because they were all converted to vacation houses! If you are only going as a couple, staying in Sayulita hotels is the best and cheapest option. In fact, you’ll save a lot more in hotels!
For big groups, I have a few vacation rentals with pools that I can recommend. I don’t have them on this list because the owners are pretty private but they are super great for families and big groups of friends!
Just get in touch with me and I will show you some other options. For now, this article only focuses on Sayulita hotels.
