can you walk/hike from Sayulita to San Pancho?

I have read that it it is a nice 4 mile hike, but that there is:

1) fence at a villa at San Pancho, making it almost impossible to pass. Is that still true?

2) recent danger (robbery) on this trail.

Does anyone actually know the current status of this??

Thanks!

To me it is not worth trying to walk all the way there, because you will likely find yourself blocked off by the large multi house villa on the rock point.

Hike in that direction over to Malpasos beach - its a great walk to a secluded beach, and then turn around and walk back to Sayulita. That's a looong walk.

Taxi over to San Pancho on another day and explore that beach. Lunch there on the beach is a great time.

That's how I do it.

A cab from Sayulita to San Pancho will cost between $150-$200pesos. Although it's a pretty short distance as the crow flies, it's a surprisingly long way by car. Worth the pesos, for sure.

Hello! Will be in Sayulita soon and wanted to ask if the gate is still locked right before San Pancho? Last year we didnt get lucky...but we just love hiking to SP and then take a cab on the way back. The hike is gorgeous and its a tradition for us for years..thanks for any info. P.S. dont feel like climbing !)

100 pesos. Always ask - some drivers will tell you as high as 250 pesos.

Seeing this string of messages - what is the appeal of San Pancho? Asking in total ignorance having never been there, but will be in Sayulita in a couple weeks.

Other nice walks from Sayulita, or short trips?

San Pancho is a cute little town where you can surf as well but the the ocean there is not really good for swimming. Beautiful beach, quite compaired to Sayulita, especially now days, we always come here from Sayulita to spend a few hours. The hike tw SP is in the jungle and on the beach, close to an hour, or longer if you stop for pics and to enjoy the view. Make sure bring water with you.

Another great hike is tw Carricitos Beach past Playa Los Muertos. Beach is picture perfect, not many people there, actually most of the time we are by ourselves there...and you can take some clothes off!:)

Explore..Sayulita is a great place, hopefully it will not turn into a party town though....its getting lowder for sure :(
