San Pancho – Things To Do
THE PERFECT DAY IN SAN PANCHO
- Go for an early beach walk to connect with yourself and the sound of the waves. Breathe fresh air!
- Come back to Sundaram, shower listening to the jungle and birds. Go downstairs for a delicious breakfast in-house.
- Relax by the pool. Listen to your own calm music and just feel, read and enjoy the sun
- Get a massage or a facial to relax your mind and body – all in-house.
- Start thinking about lunch. You can have lunch made especially for you by arranging it ahead of time, or visit the local restaurants, easily accessible with our golf cart.
- Or just take a walk to town and enjoy the scenery.
- Take a long and deserved nap.
- Enjoy a great afternoon at the beach with the sun and surf. However, our ocean is not protected by the bay, so it is open sea, which means that the surf is a bit rough, please be careful.
- You must not miss the sunsets. San Pancho’s are stunning and world famous.
- Dinner time! Pick one of the local restaurants, or be adventurous and drive to Sayulita or the nearby towns to visit other restaurants.
