Greetings to our 8,753 subscribers,


As the Holiday Season fast approaches there are many upcoming events and fundraisers for everyone to participate in. Check out some of the upcoming ones below including the 2nd annual Sayulitanimals Sexy Shoe Fundraiser happening next Friday. If you have an event you would like to announce and share with fellow Sayulita residents or visitors, please post to the Sayulita Community Calendar.

Whale The waves have been a little flat in Sayulita, but it's been an excellent week for local fisherman. There are a lot of varieties of fish in our waters right now and it's a great time to perhaps take a fishing trip on any one of Sayulita's Fishing Charters. Once you've caught your fish, many restaurants offer to cook your catch and prepare it for you so don't miss out on the abundant seafood available right now in Sayulita!  If fishing isn't your thing, it's now whale season as the humpbacks migrate south from northern Canada and Alaska to the Bay of Banderas from mid November to April.


Thank you for reading El Sayulero.

Las olas han sido un poco planas en Sayulita, pero ha sido una semana excelente para los pescadores locales. Hay un montón de variedades de peces en el mar en este momento y es una buena epoca del ano para tomar  un viaje de pesca con un Sayulita's Fishing Charters.  Una vez que haya capturado el pescado, muchos restaurantes ofrecen el servicio de cocinar tu pescado y prepararlo para usted así que no te pierdas del abundante marisco disponible en estos momentos en Sayulita! Si la pesca no es lo tuyo, ahora es la temporada de ballenas jorobadas cuando migran al sur desde el norte de Canadá y Alaska hasta la Bahía de Banderas desde mediados de noviembre a abril.
Gracias por leer El Sayulero.

Question of the Week: What Do You Think of
The Sayulita Sunsets?

By Nicki Cooper 


"It's a bittersweet sunset because you don't get to see all of it as it sinks behind the hill. It's nice to see the sunset over the ocean because where we live it sets behind the city."


"Se trata de una puesta de sol agridulce, ya que no se llega a ver todo como que se baja detrás de la colina. Es agradable ver la puesta de sol sobre el océano porque donde vivimos se pone detrás de la ciudad."


-Emily and Ian, San Francisco, CA

GPS: Name Tiles For Sayulita? 


When Barbara and I used our Puerto Vallarta auction package that we won, one of the highlights was a first-time visit to the Botanical Gardens, about a half hour south of PV.  I'm always interested in cultural destinations, especially since I've had a lot of involvement with new art museums.   And having had many years helping not-for-profit groups, I'm always interested in new approaches for earning income to keep these organizations going.  More 


Cuando Barbara y yo utilizamos los boletos que ganamos en la subasta de GPS, uno de los puntos culminantes fue una visita al Jardín Botánico, una media hora al sur de Puerto Vallarta.  Me nteresan mucho los lugares culturales, como he participado en varios nuevos museos de arte. También tengo muchos años de experiencia en ayudar los grupos sin fines lucrativos, y siempre busco nuevos enfoques a recaudar fondos para mantener esas organizaciones vivas.  Mas 
Bite This Column Gets High Honor   

The British give honors like, O.B.E, V.C., and the Order of the Garter. Even writers occasionally get honors like the Pulitzer Price or book awards. But, never in a dozen years did I expect El Sayulero's "Bite This" column to receive an award. Oh, sure, I often get beautiful women who stop me on the street and ask for my autograph, and dogs licking my fingers for scent of food, but yesterday was several cuts above, bordering on fleeting fame.

Pero nunca, en una docena de años esperé El Sayulero de "Bite Esta" columna para recibir un premio. Ah, claro, a menudo me hermosas mujeres que me para en la calle y pedir mi autógrafo, y los perros lamiendo mis dedos para olor de los alimentos, pero ayer fue varios cortes por encima, rozando la fama efímera.  Mas
