Greetings to our 8,701 subscribers,


It has been a hot November and the question everyone is asking in town is: "when will it cool down?"  The water is the place to keep cool! Happy American Thanksgiving to all our readers and contributors who will be celebrating either here in Sayulita or afar!  



If you are out on the beach and water today, don't miss the Chica Locca trimaran parked out on the bay for a few hours beginning at 1pm this afternoon and you can paddle out, surf out, or take a panga boat out and jump on board.  The Chica Locca party boat has had some recent upgrades including two fun water slides this season. For more information visit: www.sayulitalife.com/magical   



El Sayulero brings you a great feel-good article about a tourist who had her purse stolen, along with the local authorities and other helpful Sayulita people, she was able to catch the perpetrator. Read below for more details in Sarah's own words.   


Thank you for reading.


Lindsay Walter 

Editor, El Sayulero

Best of Sayulita!
SayulitaLife.com launches a constantly updating report of visitor-recommended rentals and businesses 

Sayulita As part of its ongoing effort to continually market Sayulita to the rest of the world, Sayulita Life has just launched a new Recommended section on the website.  The new page automatically updates itself based on user reviews of local businesses and rentals.   The page is divided into two sections:


Top 5 Most Recent

New recommendations are posted to the list immediately after owner approval.  Check out the page anytime to see the newest reviews, live as they are posted.  


Top 5 in the Last 30 Days

The system keeps track of all reviews and lists the top five rentals/businesses that have received the most reviews in the last 30 days.  Again, this is a continually changing list depending upon user input.


Users are also able to quickly and easily write a review for any rental or business from this page.  www.sayulitalife.com/top-reviews  

With over 1,000 live reviews posted to SayulitaLife.com in the year, we expect even more great success for local rentals and business since this new section is accessible from EVERY page on SayulitaLife.com.

Sayulita Police Arrest Thieves
(with the help of a determined tourist)  


Publisher note:  Every once in a while I get wind of a story I feel represents Sayulita's sense of community and also demonstrates the results of individual and group efforts to make our village a better place to live and vacation.  After learning of the following incident, I tracked down Sarah and was able to call her in California to take down some notes for Lindsay to create an article.  At the end of the call, Sarah volunteered to send me a quick summary of the ordeal.  After reading her email we decided to run this story without any edits or formatting in hopes of allowing our 8,700+ readers to hear it in Sarah's own words.  I hope you enjoy the read.

  travis[excerpt] by this time, my guard was certainly down.  The music was great, I was excited to dance, and so was Travis (he isn't much of a dancer)!  Unfortunately, the night didn't go as we thought, and this is where the party ended.  With my guard let down, I set my purse to the side to pay for a cocktail, and it was stolen as I paid.  At that point, my evening was pretty much done, and I was thinking -- so was my vacation.  But little did I know what the next two days would bring! Immediately after I realized my purse was missing, I began to back track my steps.  To the bartender at Camarones, to the pathway into the bar, to the streets we meandered to get there, to Miro Vino.  Miro Vino was closed, but that didn't matter.  Lucca and the entire staff let me in, helped me look for my purse.  Unfortunately, it did not turn up.

Nota de Editorial: De vez en cuando me entero de una historia que siento que representa el sentido de la comunidad y demuestra los resultados de los esfuerzos hechos por grupos y individuos para hacer que Sayulita sea un mejor lugar donde vivir y vacacionar. Después de escuchar de la historia a continuación, encontré a Sarah y le hable en California para tomar notas y pasarlas a Lindsay para crear un artículo. Después de leer lo que me envió Sarah, decidimos dejar su versión tal como esta escrito sin editarlo con la esperanza que nuestros 8,700+ lectores pudieran escuchar lo que paso a través de las palabras de Sarah. Espero que les guste leerlo.

La música era genial, me ha emocionado la danza, y así fue Travis también (¡no es muy bailarín!) Por desgracia, la noche no salió como esperábamos, y allí es donde la fiesta terminó. Puse mi bolso a un lado para pagar un cóctel, y alguien me lo robó mientras pagaba. La noche estaba arruinada, igual que mis vacaciones, pensaba. ¡Nunca me imaginaba lo que sucediera en los próximos dos días!

Comencé a retroceder mis pasos - hablé con el camarero en Camarones, pasamos por las calles que habíamos recorrido y regresamos a Miro Vino. Estaba cerrado, pero Lucca me dejó entrar y me ayudó a buscar mi bolso. Por desgracia, no se me presentó.

GPS: Town Priorities 


Traditionally, each year GPS volunteers state their interests and priorities for the town.  Most of the suggestions have fallen into one of six categories.  In no particular order, they are: a. cleaning the town of trash and dust (with recycling) b. helping the public schools c. full-time lifeguards on the beach  d. helping with long-term town planning for traffic, parking, recreational facilities e. adequate ambulance and emergency/medical response services. More 
Cada año los voluntarios de GPS indican en lo que les interesa y trabajar para el pueblo. La mayor parte de las sugerencias se dividen en seis categorías: limpiar el pueblo de basura y polvo (con el reciclaje), ayudar las escuelas públicas, emplear a salvavidas a pleno tiempo en la playa, planificar a largo plazo para el tránsito, estacionamiento, y las facilidades de recreo, proporcionar ambulancia/emergencia/médicos.  Mas


Bite This: Wines With Thanksgiving Dinner  

Chile Relleno

This is the time of year when a lot of wine writers chip in about what wines to have with Thanksgiving dinner. They set you up with the idea that choosing these wines for the groaning board will be the most frightening, intimidating, scary, painful, mind bending, nerve wracking, difficult, cliff hanging task that ever existed in the world of wine and food pairings. More
Estamos en la época del año cuando muchos escritores de vino comentan qué tipos de vinos son mejores para disfrutar con la cena de Acción de Gracias. Se configura con la idea de que la elección de vinos para esa banquete popular será la más aterradora, intimidora, miedosa, dolorosa, y difícil tarea que jamás haya existido en el mundo del maridaje de vino y comida.  Mas
Serendipitous Sayulita Tales 

I love hearing stories about intertwined lives, how after long separations people come together again effortlessly, mysteriously showing up together on a different stage in another space and time. Decades after their first contact, completely without planning or forethought, destinies float on capricious winds of chance: More

Sayulitanimals: Give Time and Change a Life  

By Nicki Cooper


Sayulitanimals is an organization completely run by volunteers, and currently it is functioning with less than ten! Life is a very busy thing, and they understand that, but if you could assist in small ways, it would make all the difference. Perhaps simply providing rides to and from the airport when animals are traveling out or vets are coming in. This may only be once a month, but the assistance is huge.  More


Sayulitanimals es una organización completamente de voluntarios, y actualmente está funcionando con menos de diez! La vida es una cosa muy ocupada, pero si pudiera ayudar en pequeñas cosas, haría toda la diferencia. Tal vez simplemente proporcionar paseos al aeropuerto, cuando los animales sean transportados fuera del país o veterinarios vienen a ayudar. Esto puede ser sólo una vez al mes, pero la asistencia es enorme.  Mas 

Pet of the Week:  "Blue" 


Blue is one amazing dog! She used to live in front of the taco stands but has now adopted the volunteers at Sayulitanimals and lives her days in front of the building. She is healthy, spayed, strong, and has a very docile temperament. She is great with all people and other dogs. She would be an excellent indoor pet for an individual or a family. She is not a high energy dog and would be happy with minimal exercise. She is extremely loyal and waits for humans to return to her. Blue is waiting patiently for her Fur-ever home. Let us know if you would like to meet this black beauty!


To adopt an animal or donate to Sayulitanimals contact: sayulitanimals@hotmail.com 


Blue es un perro asombroso! Vivia en frente los puestos de tacos pero ahora tiene voluntarios adoptivos en Sayulitanimals y vive durante los dias en frente el edificio. Es saludable, castrada, fuerte y muy tranquila. Se lleva bien con toda la gente y con otros perros. Seria una mascota excelente para tener dentro de la casa para cualquier persona o familia. No es un perro con mucha energia y estaria contenta con poco ejercisio. Es muy leal y espera hasta que regresen los humanos. Blue esta esperando con paciencia para llegar a una casa. Avisanos si quieres conocer esta hermosura.
