We went to Sayulita and found it to be very busy, very dusty and thank goodness we made it to the beach and found Captain Pablo's. It was great to sit on the sand, enjoy a great margarita and some very good nachos.

Right on the beach, lots of shady palapas, cold cervesa and huge drinks. Food is okay, shrimp salad was so big others helped me finish it.
