Just across Yambak is Barrillito, a small bar popular for people watching. Conveniently right in front of the plaza, this is the best place to start the night. The vibe is usually tranquil, but it can really get busy when they have DJ events. Though it is a small place, we love Barrillito for its interior and structure. It is one of the best bars in Sayulita that we frequent!
