I don't know where "Bandmom" stayed, but as far as location goes it sure doesn't sound like Hacienda de la Costa. It is as incredible as you describe it however it is definitely NOT high over the town of Sayulita, it is 2 miles south of town and, according to my GPS, 80 feet above sea level with a beautiful jungle and panoramic ocean view. I have been traveling all over Mexico for the last four months and stayed at Hacienda de la Costa a few months ago. It is number one on my list of places to visit again. It feels like a second home. Steve and Terri are incredible hosts. The breakfasts are to die for.
I really enjoyed the walk to town especially taking in the awesome scenery ..... I am 60 years old and made the trek almost every day, there weren’t any hills that I found too taxing for my tired bones. It's a great nature walk but if you are in a hurry the cabs are really inexpensive.
I meant to write a review ages ago. Now after reading "Bandmoms" glowing review I had to set the record straight as far as the location for this gem in the jungle. The town of Sayulita has lots to offer in the way of restaurants and wonderful shops with all sorts of Native Art and curios. If you’re seeking lots of party action head to P.V. If you are looking for secluded beaches, great jungle scenery, flocks of parrots to awaken to, lots of sun and a gentle sea breeze, and in general a great laid back vacation, Hacienda de la Costa is it.
