Carricitos Beach

Carricitos is a free access beach with very few visitors
located 2km east of Sayulita which has a unique view
and atmosphere where the waves break on the huge
rocks found around the beach.

A special feature of Carricitos is its sand, due to the
volcanic rock that exists there, the presence of black
sand is observed. It mixes with the golden sand,
leaving beautiful landscapes which look spectacular
especially during sunset.

This beach is ideal for adventurous tourists who love walks and nature,

middle of the jungle where you can see different types of regional
flora and fauna.

The beach is surrounded by huge rocks where the waves break.

to avoid injuries. Its waves are not the best for surfing, but you
