Captain Pablos on the beach at the end of Gaviotta’s street. Nothing is quite like the experience of fishing in a panga boat. Caught my first Dorado with them. Great fun! Best way to book is to take a walk down and talk with them.

Great reviews and a visitor favorite
Captain Cesar Dumay

Another long time captain that people love
Captain Regis

Fishing can be a very personal experience so nothing wrong with taking a walk down to where
the fishing boats are on the main beach and talking to some of the fisherman directly. Best time
would be early a.m. when they are getting ready to go out.


 Horseback riding
You will find along the river or on the North beach just past Terrazola.  Usually $300.00 pesos per hour.
Painted Ponies Equestrian Center

Painted Ponies Equestrian Center just outside of Sayulita, has great jungle, waterfall and beach rides.

Turtle Release

At sunset from October-Jan/Feb on the north side beach you can be a part of something
magical when our local Campamento Tortuga releases the baby turtles. Look for the big green
flag on the beach across from Parjaro del Fuego condominiums. For more information or if you
want to sponsor a nest you can visit them on their Facebook page.
