Thanks for reaching out! Sayulita nightlife is incredibly active and there is generally taking place from Monday to Friday. This pueblo is actually tiny so the areas I will mention beneath can be simply reached by walking. Standard beer costs in Sayulita bars expense about 30 Mexican pesos ($1.52 USD). At this price tag, you can get a bottle of Corona, Victoria, and Pacifico – the most prevalent Mexican beer brands not only in Sayulita bars but all more than Mexico. Cocktails can variety from 100 – 150 Mexican pesos (from $five USD approx).
Sayulita nightlife by no means fails so there is no distinction if you arrive on a weekend or not – some thing is generally up! If you ever come right here, please do not hesitate to make contact with me and I’ll invest in the 1st round!
I do not know how to place this into words but nightlife in Sayulita is quite chill, but at the very same time can go out of hand. When my close friends ask, I ordinarily say “it’s like Boracay but a bit chill” since Boracay parties can final up to 11:00 am the subsequent day. Sayulita bars and clubs close at three:00 am as per the town ordinance but several men and women continue to the just after parties in their hostels, nearby residences, or even by the beach.
As for the men and women going to Sayulita and going out to get drunk, hmmm, there’s a lot of these. Sayulita nightlife actually depends on who you are with and if they know exactly where to go. Due to the low cost and direct flights from main Canadian cities like Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal, majority of the guests right here are Canadians, followed by Americans. There are a lot of Europeans, as well. On weekends, count on a flood of Mexicans in all the bars as Guadalajara is only four hours away from Sayulita. This is the closest beach town in their city and they generally come for the weekend.
Police is patroling everywhere so if you feel that Sayulita has a incredibly vulgar drug scene, you are incorrect. These policemen are generally seeking out for gringos who will do the incorrect issues so they can be milked for dollars.
I at present reside in Sayulita so if you are ever in town, right here are the ideal areas to stop by for a wonderful encounter of the Sayulita nightlife. Also keep in mind to get in touch so we can have a round of drinks (or two)!
For thematic parties every single evening: Don Pato
I keep in mind getting at Don Pato every single day throughout my 1st month in Sayulita. This is exactly where everybody ends up at evening since some thing is taking place nightly! If you are out of solutions and seeking for some thing to do just after midnight, Don Pato is your location!
Mondays (Salsa evening): every single Monday, there’s a reside band playing salsa at Don Pato. I actually enjoy this band as it is not incredibly prevalent to discover a salsa bar with a reside salsa band in Mexico. It is additional of a particular events evening factor but in Sayulita, it is every single Monday! This evening is not only for these who dance salsa professionally but it is for everybody! If you do not know how to dance salsa, effectively, really feel no cost to dance with any Mexican you will come across and you will find out!
Tuesdays (Open mic evening): can you sing? Even if you can not, sign up for open mic nights at Don Pato every single Tuesday! Everybody will cheer for you anyway. It is not a karaoke machine as you envision but a reside band will attempt their ideal to play the song you want to sing. As lengthy as you have the notes (which you can simply Google), they will play it for you!
Wednesdays and Fridays (Rock evening): Really like Rock? Greatest hits are played by a incredibly excellent Mexican rock band at Don Pato’s every single Tuesday. You can even request for a song!
Thursdays (Funk evening): Fuck music is becoming larger and larger in Mexico so if you are a fan, Thursday is your day!
Saturdays (cumbia): a different round of dancing for the week exactly where Don Pato either invites a reside cumbia band or plays cumbia all evening. This is incredibly unique with salsa so come more than and find out Shakira’s favourite dance!
Sundays (reggae): Chill tunes on Sundays but you can also get drunk. 😉
For the mezcal addicts: Cava
A tiny mezcaleria in Sayulita, Cava has more than 50+ varieties of Mezcal to decide on from, hailing from unique components of Mexico like Puebla and Oaxaca. My individual favourite right here is the Marta e Ines, a mezcal base drink created by Miguel, the ideal bartender in town who also occurs to be a buddy. The watermelon mezcal is intriguing, as well. Cava is type of a pre-game chill evening type of location so make confident to come just before they close at 12:00 midnight.
For 20 pesos all the things: Cerveceria Chapultepec
With branches in every single main Mexican city, Cerveceria Chapultepec is no stranger to the Mexican culture. Burgers, fries, salads, beers – all the things the serve fees 20 MXN ($1.01 USD) so your travel price range will undoubtedly be maximised. You may possibly feel that the price tag appears super sketchy but do not be concerned, I feel that, as well. Personally, I only go right here for pre-drinks with close friends as other bars serve beers at 30 MXN ($1.52 USD) but the very same beers expense 10 MXN significantly less at Cerveceria Chapultepec. I only had fries right here so I can’t speak for their meals menu. I do, nevertheless, label this location as the ideal beer location in town.
For all-evening no cost drinks every single Saturday (sorry boys, ladies only!): Coco’s
Coco’s Beach Club is open throughout the day for meals, drinks, and lounging by the beach but it is additional well known for its weekend parties. On Fridays, they place Cumbia and they even invite DJs and reside bands to play cumbia tunes. On this day, they have a door charge of 30 Mexican pesos ($1.five USD) but I am actually not confident if this price tag is for all. I can only say that this is a nearby price tag as I’ve heard unique stories from gringo close friends who stated they have been charged additional. Far better practice your Spanish! On Saturdays, it is drink all you can for the ladies! I’ve been in one particular of these ladies’ nights and man, the drinks are actually no cost-flowing for the girls!
For the deep residence and techno fanatics: Yambak’s
If you are a beer fan, then Yambak’s is your location (like everybody else). Their beers are additional costly than other bars since they have their personal brewery inside the bar but I would honestly spend 60-80 MXN ($three – $four USD approx) for a pint of excellent beer. Beer names involve Stoner’s Point and La Ticla, each are creatively depicting the Sayulita nightlife and vibe. My individual favored is the double IPA but drink with caution – the alcohol content material is as well higher, you will pass out just after five glasses!
Yambak’s is also in front of the plaza so it is a excellent location to meet men and women. Their seating arrangement (standing, rather) tends to make men and women collect and mingle the complete evening. This is exactly where you will meet Sayulita locals, as well!
For a chill ambiance with reside band: Atico
It will not be tough to spot Atico since their seats are placed on the street. Aside from that, Atico’s facade is a uniquely-created bar of rustic wood. There’s also a bar chair that is a swing (I attempted it myself, it wasn’t comfy particularly when you are drunk). Atico’s sophistication will make you really feel it is not price range-friendly but attempt sitting down and watching their reside bands – there is a chill vibe Atico emanates that will make you want to keep all evening.
For the ideal michelada in town, pre-drinks and Mexican snacks: Aaleyah’s
Get a large-ass michelada at Aaleyah’s for only 65 MXN ($three.29 USD). Anytime a person asks me exactly where to get michelada in town, I generally propose Aaleyah’s not only since of the generous drink size but also the way they do it. Aaleyah is an institution in Sayulita and you will discover additional locals hanging out right here than vacationers. Aside from low cost drinks, they also serve excellent Mexican meals like enchiladas, avocado and chips, tacos, and several additional! Believe of all the Mexican meals that you want to attempt – they are all served at Aaleyah’s! The ambiance in this restaurant is also super Mexican so count on a standard encounter.
For reside bands: Chillum
A mini version of Cava, Chillum is a location for pre-drinks. They have reside bands till midnight and have the ideal spot in town. It is not that higher to be known as a rooftop bar but it is one particular of the coolest highlights of your Sayulita nightlife encounter. The location is incredibly tiny so it gets complete immediately so come right here suitable just after dinner to reserve your spot!
