8. Sayulita and San Pancho Day Trip
Make a quick stop to try exotic fruits & local sweets
On the way to San Pancho, your day of exploration and discovery begins with a stop at a colorful roadside stand where we will taste exotic fruits and local sweets.
Your guide will share the history behind some of those traditional sweets and their origin. It will be an excellent opportunity to take a piece or two for the road.
Taste Mexican street food in San Pancho
We continue to San Pancho to meet the staff of Su Pancha Madre, a very cool food truck dedicated to one of the most iconic dishes of Mexican street food, sopes. They welcome us with a mouthwatering sope prepared at the moment, in a gourmet way. Enjoy its great flavor and colorful presentation.
After a short break, walk through the surrounding streets to the main avenue of San Pancho, where we will have half an hour to admire its murals and leisurely stroll through the galleries and shops.
Tuesdays in San Pancho have added value because they are market days, the perfect opportunity to browse through hundreds of products made by hand by local artists.
Approaching the center of San Pancho, we stop at Las Iguanas. At this classic plaza food stall, we'll savor a delicious and fulfilling quesadilla made with a blue corn tortilla.
Try pulque, a pre-Hispanic alcoholic beverage
Continue your exploration of San Pancho, walking through the alleys of the city to El Gallo, a pulqueria with a beach atmosphere. Try two types of pulques, one white and one cured, and find out why this legendary drink is back and more fashionable than ever.
During your tasting, learn about the history of pulque. This pre-Hispanic beverage made from the lightly fermented sap of the agave is closely intertwined with the history of Mexico and a fundamental part of our cultural heritage.
El Gallo is also a liquor and wine store. This would be your opportunity to take home a good bottle of mezcal, raicilla or wines from Valle de Guadalupe, one of the most prolific winery regions of Mexico.
Visit a community center and learn about their philosophy
Before leaving, we will make a quick visit to Entre Amigos, a community center rooted in the mission of giving the children and families of San Pancho the skills necessary to contribute and positively impact their communities.
Enjoy Sayulita's shops, boutiques and galleries
After a morning in San Pancho, we headed to Sayulita. Upon arrival, you will have free time to explore and soak up the atmosphere of the streets and visit boutiques and art shops.
The multi-ethnicity of this charismatic town is present in its handicrafts, bars, restaurants and stalls selling jewelry, handmade garments and swimsuits. Walk down Sayulita's most iconic street as you delight in the beautiful art and galleries.
This tour of Sayulita and San Pancho is a fun and charming day out, perfect to enjoy with friends or make new ones!
