Sayulita Riviera Nayarit, Mexico


As a remote fishing village near the Puerto Vallarta section of Mexico, Sayulita Riviera Nayarit is home to tropical jungles and rural Mexican countryside. The unique, narrow streets still exhibit the ancient cobblestone terrain from centuries ago, and the location along the coast of the Pacific ocean guarantees beautiful scenery, beaches and of course, great fishing opportunities. Since this beautiful little area is not as well known as other Mexican resorts, you can still enjoy privacy and a lower cost vacation than you would in more popular tourist destinations.

The Sayulita fishing opportunities are many, and consist of a very popular activity; heading out to the open waters in a panga, which is a type of boat used for fishing in this area. Many of the tourists also enjoy heading out in the pangas for a day of viewing the coastline and jungles along this coast, often times with the help of Sayulita fishing charters. The most sought after fish include Sailfish, Marlin, Tuna Bonito and Rooster fish, and some of these species can top a hundred pounds or more, so be prepared to fight to bring in the big fish when you try fishing Sayulita style.

Most of the better fishing spots will be well known to natives and other tourism companies, so you may have to share the wealth with others who are also enjoying this little slice of tropical paradise. The best time for fishing in this area is from July to January. If you enjoy warmer weather, June till September temps usually average in the eighties. However, the tuna season won't start until August, so if you are seeking these monstrous 400 pound tunas, you need to head out in the fall for your fishing vacation.

Since Sayulita is filled with so many types of fishing opportunities and so many types of fish to seek, you need to make sure you get the correct type of chartering experience to ensure that you have a successful outcome in your fishing excursion. Professional charter companies like Fishing Reservation Central will have the local knowledge in hand to make sure that you can find the right fish at the right time and in the right place. This delightful area is perfect for families, so people of all ages can be accommodated for their fishing needs. Many local touring companies will have competitions and tournaments for locals and visitors alike, so check into your options to catch the “big one”.
