A surfer's haven, Sayulita is a village on Mexico's Pacific coast at the feet of the Sierra Madre Occidental Mountains and about 40km north of downtown Puerto Vallarta in the state of Nayarit, Mexico. There are only about 5,000 souls meandering around its quaint streets, so you won't have any problems making new friends or asking for directions to a coworking venue, if you have no sense of direction and get lost. Known for its beaches pounded by strong surf at the central beach of Sayulita, to the west of the town at Los Muertos Beach you will find a protected beach of gentle swells hidden between the rocks. The town has a laid-back beachy vibe with galleries selling indigenous art, quirky cafes and enough restaurants to give you a choice when the hunger pangs strike. You can indulge in a bit of fishing, horse riding, hiking, exploring the jungle canopy or chatting to the fish when you are snorkeling. Affectionately referred to as a "Magical Town", Sayulita has a mish mash of cultures from Mexican to international.
Startup ecosystems are thriving in Mexico and its transition to an innovation economy may just turn it into one of the world's biggest economies in the next decade, if the government maintains its support for entrepreneurship by continuing to develop new initiatives to boost its growth. Mexico is at the heart of Latin America's tech revolution and has been the entry point for many global tech companies such as Uber, Google and Facebook in Latin America. Mexico has a growing economy with widespread mobile coverage, low banking penetration and an underdeveloped lending system that is pushing Mexican fintech to success. About 40% of fintech startups in Mexico are involved in the niche markets of lending or remittances.
In recent years Sayulita has become a digital nomads slice of heaven, as it's an affordable base with an international airport closeby. The fact that connecting to the Internet is virtually free around the town and coworking venues have now opened up, makes it an attractive proposition to linger awhile.
