Sayulita Mexico Surf Camp
Sayulita, home to our Mexico surf camp, is built along a white-sand bay. The bay front is dotted with colorful fishing boats & palm trees, this lovely village is sufficiently untouched by the modern world and retains its wonderful Mexican flavor while still offering a good array of services. Sayulita is the safe, charming, eye-catching Mexican coastal village we’ve always sought to bring our guests. Sayulita is home to first-rate beginner & beginner/intermediate warm water surf breaks, making it the ideal place to polish your surfing proficiency. In addition to surfing, you’ll have the chance to enjoy snorkeling, sea kayaking, whale watching, art tours, fishing, mountain biking, and more.

Singles / Solo Travelers - If you're traveling on your own and want to share the experience with other solo travelers, we've set aside departures for many of our trips. Itineraries are identical to our those of our open trips but, because these departures are composed entirely of independent travelers, there's a unique, fun dimension to the group dynamic. Of course, solo travelers are more than welcome on all of our open departures as well, where often more than half of our guests are traveling alone.
Day 1 - On arrival day your All Star Trips hosts will greet you at the airport and whisk you away to our private house and set you up with your room. Today we will relax around the house and village, hang out on the beach, and enjoy some treats whipped up by our cook. In the evening opening dinner greetings enable everyone to meet and get to know one another.
Day 2 - Our group will head out for morning surf lessons and sessions. The best waves are in the morning so we'll be sure to paddle out early. Private instruction will be provided to each camper that needs lessons. Our session will last until noon when we break for a lunch in town. The rest of the day will consist of lounging and trips around town led by one of your hosts. These trips in town are designed to familiarize the group with their location in this 1 mile long by 1 mile wide Mexican town.
Day 3 - More great surfing. Today an afternoon trip is planned to Puerto Vallarta for art tours and dinner.
Days 4 - We will take a short 15 minute drive to the next town over named Punta Munta home to a beach with world famous long rolling mellow waves. Endless amounts of fun will fill the day as we surf, snorkel and kayak.
Day 5 - Enjoy surf lessons in the morning, and an afternoon of your choice. Try a jungle hike or mountain bike ride.
Day 6 - Waves in the morning. An optional afternoon fishing trip with a fish taco fiesta for our last night.
Days 7 - Departure Day. Today we have the sad task of saying goodbye. Morning surf session if time allows before drop off at the PV airport.
