Since it is one of the attraction of Sayulita we decided to walk a little longer for this small beach called Playa de los Muertos, mostly because on the way there you have to pass by Sayulita cemetery. To get there we took the center of the little town road, that looks like this, since less than a month ago they celebrated Los Dias de los Muertos.
Finally at the Beach we have to cross to the other side of a small hill.
That the beach of the dead should be so lovely and lively is a small irony, a Sayulita paradox. Down past the hilly graveyard, there’s a small stretch of sand between rocky points, a bit of Sayulita but a bit removed. Here, where the spirits of those nearby dead perhaps have gathered, the swimming is wonderful, for the sea is calm, and off the rocks to the left, the snorkeling is great, with swarming schools of brightly colored fish to admire. The walk through the graveyard is enchanting, for Mexicans love to spend time with their dead, and so they dress their family graves with flowers and finery; and when you get past the finery, you’ll find perhaps the finest beach in town.
Here is the Cemetery
And here is the super cute beach. Playa de Los Muertos is very popular with Mexican families and a safe swimming beach. Huge rocks protect it on both sides.
