Greetings to our 7,566 subscribers,

RainbowDuring the last week, Sayulita has been experiencing some cloudy weather and rainy days. The overcast skies have cooled down the temperature and the rain has made the hillsides green though it has not been the best weather for beach goers in Sayulita. Some locals and residents say that it's not unlikely at all to have rain showers in February, while others are surprised by the precipitation this time of year. Despite the grey skies, the sun has poked through some days and Sayulita saw a beautiful and one of the biggest rainbows across our skies. This photo taken by photographer R. Sean Galloway captures the recent rainbow beautifully.

The current construction in the downtown area of Sayulita is still underway and many roads have been temporarily blocked while traffic is re-routed around town. Keep in mind the construction if you plan on driving into or around Sayulita during the next few weeks. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of March.

Thank you for reading El Sayulero.

Saludos a nuestros 7,566 suscriptores,


Durante la última semana, el clima ha estado nublado con días de lluvia. Las temperaturas han bajado y la lluvia ha ayudado que las colinas estén mas verdes aunque este tipo de clima no es ideal para los que quieren ir a la playa en Sayulita. Algunos locales y residentes dice que no es tan raro ver lluvia durante esta época del año, mientras otros se sorprenden ver lluvia en febrero. A pesar del cielo gris, el sol ha tratado de salir en estos días y Sayulita vio un arco iris hermoso y grande en el cielo. Esta foto tomada por R. Sean Galloway captura bien el arco iris en Sayulita.


La construcción en el centro sigue en marcha y muchas calles están bloqueadas temporalmente mientras desvían el trafico por otras partes del pueblo. Toma en cuenta esto si estas planeando manejar a Sayulita durante las próximas semanas. Se espera que la construcción se acabe para finales de marzo.

The Legacy of Our Elders in Sayulita     

By Fausto Robles

Many years ago, in my time as a fisherman in Sayulita, I had to leave one day for an emergency to Guadalajara. At the time of my departure the ocean was absolutely calm and I thought to leave my boat anchored in the bay. I did not know at the time that October was the month of much instability because of the hurricane season.  More


Hace ya bastantes años, en mi época de pescador aquí en Sayulita estando en plena actividad tuve que salir de emergencia a Guadalajara. Como al momento de mi partida el mar estaba en absoluta quietud opté por dejar fondeada mi lancha en la bahía. Desconocía en ese entonces que octubre era un mes de mucha inestabilidad por ser época de huracanes.   Mas

Sayulita Investment Realty
GPS:  A Most Positive Challenge      
By Eric Rudd

It all started when a Grupo Pro Sayulita volunteer offered us $5,000 USD and challenged us to raise at least $20,000 more. The $25,0000 could stimulate raising an additional $25,000 by Fiesta (our major fundraiser) participants. We put out the call and we are well on our way to getting to the $20,000 mark; we need a few more sizable checks. (If you need it to be U.S. tax-deductable, please talk to our treasurer, Cheryl Vaughan.)  More


Todo comenzó cuando un voluntario GPS nos ofreció $5.000 y nos desafió a levantar por lo menos $20.000 más, para que el $25.0000 puedan estimular levantando un adicional $25.000 por participantes de Fiesta. Apagamos la llamada y nosotros somos bien en nuestra manera a llegar a la $20.000 marca; necesitamos unos pocos cheques más grandes. (Si usted lo necesita para ser EEUU impuesto-deducible, habla por favor con nuestro tesorero, Cheryl Vaughan).  Mas
