Greetings to our 8,392 subscribers


The weather has certainly cooled off and it would appear that "winter" in Sayulita has officially arrived. Although visitors to Sayulita from up north and snow birds escaping harsh winters will tell you that this really is perfect sunny weather, residents who live here all year long may feel a chill in the morning air and evenings compared to the last few months and surfers are jumping into considerably colder water temperatures in our bay. The cooler nights make for a wonderful night's sleep in Sayulita, no air conditioning necessary!

Surf Tournament Last Saturday was the first "Who's Next?" Kids Surf Tournament hosted by the Sayulita Surf Club. There were young participants and spectators enjoying the event on the beach. Congratulations to all Sayulita participants and to the winners of the event in the final open junior, Diego Mignot, final 9-13 category winner, Eno James, and final 4-8 category winner, Luke Akerman.
If you were not in Sayulita last Saturday and didn't catch the event, you can click the video here to see the surf talents and highlights of the day.

Thank you for reading El Sayulero and enjoy the below articles.

Saludos a nuestros 8,392 lectores
La temperatura del clima sin duda ha bajado
esta semana y parace que el "invierno" ha llegado a Sayulita.  Aunque los visitantes a Sayulita llegando del norte escapanco los duros inviernos te dirian que este clima soleado perfecto, los residentes que viven aquí todo el año pueden sentir la diferencia por las mañanas y las tardes en comparación con los meses pasados y surfistas están saltando al agua considerablemente más fría.   Las noches más frescas son buenas para dormir a gusto en Sayulita, sin aire acondicionado. 

El sábado pasado fue el primer torneo de surf infantil "Who's Next?" organizado por el Club de Surf. Había jóvenes participando y espectadores que disfrutaban del evento en la playa. Felicidades a todos los participantes en Sayulita y felicitaciones a los ganadores del evento en la final júnior abierto, Mignot Diego, ganador de la categoría 9-13, Eno James, y en la categoría de 4-8, Lucas Akerman. Si no estabas en Sayulita el sábado pasado y no viste el evento, puedes hacer clic en el video para ver los talentos de surf y lo más destacado del día.

2013 Brings Cooler Temperatures to Sayulita   

 By Nicki Cooper 

After a considerably warmer December, Sayulita has dropped 10 degrees since last Sunday which recorded 84 F to yesterday's high of 74 F. Being perfect weather for those acclimated to northern climates, this change has put a chill over Sayulita locals. Walking the streets it's easy to see who is on vacation versus who spends the year here by noticing swim suits and sandals or jeans and sweaters!  Read more


Después un diciembre con mucho más calor, Sayulita ha bajado 10 grados desde el pasado domingo, que registró 84 F de alta a 74 F de ayer. Ser un clima perfecto para la gente aclimatada a los climas del norte, este cambio ha puesto un escalofrío en los locales de Sayulita. Si caminas al centro es fácil a ver quien está para vacaciones en comparación con los locales que pasan el año aquí de sus trajes de baño y sandalias o jeans y suéteres!  Leer mas

PAEZ Sayulita Warms Our Soles   

By Nicki Cooper



PAEZ Sayulita shoes warm the soles of our feet and keep us walking in comfort and style. Winter has finally come to Sayulita, and the standard sandal is simply not enough with the nighttime chill. So what do you do if you didn't pack those closed toed shoes, or like so many who live here, only have various flip-flops in the closet? Take a quick walk down the right side of Revolution past the plaza, and you will find PAEZ shoe store on the left. When inside, you will be sure to find something you like amongst the widely varied patterns and styles!  More 


Zapatos PAEZ calienta nuestros pies y nos mantienen caminando con comodidad y estilo. El invierno ha llegado finalmente a Sayulita, y la típica sandalia no es suficiente con el frío de la noche. Entonces, ¿qué hacer si no empacar los zapatos con punta cerrada, o como muchos que viven aquí, sólo tenemos varias chanclas en el armario? Tome un paseo rápido por el lado derecho del calle Revolución más allá de la plaza, y se encuentra PAEZ tienda de zapatos a la izquierda. Cuando en el interior, usted estará seguro de encontrar algo que te guste entre los estampados y estilos muy variados! Mas

GPS: Friends of Sayulita and The New Year

Although I thought last week's column would be my last, I'm writing a couple of extra columns as GPS president-- all because the election got moved back two weeks to January 23.  Although I am retiring this month as president of GPS after three years, I'll still have a small but official role for the upcoming year.  Because most of the money that comes to GPS goes to our Paypal and credit card accounts in the U.S., two months ago we formed a U.S. non-profit entity called Friends of Sayulita to be the legal owner of this account.  We have applied for 501c3 status and if we receive approval, donations will be tax deductible for U.S. citizens. More 


Aunque pensé columna de la semana pasada iba a ser mi último, estoy escribiendo un par de columnas adicionales como GPS presidente - todo porque la elección nos cambiaron de nuevo dos semanas para 23 de enero. Aunque me retiro de este mes como presidente de GPS después de tres años, todavía tendrá un papel pequeño pero oficial para el próximo año. Debido a que la mayor parte del dinero que viene con el GPS va a nuestro Paypal y cuentas de tarjetas de crédito en los EE.UU., hace dos meses formamos un EE.UU. entidad sin fines de lucro llamada Amigos de Sayulita a ser el propietario legal de esta cuenta. Hemos solicitado el estatus 501c3 y si recibimos su aprobación, las donaciones serán deducibles de impuestos para los ciudadanos estadounidenses. Mas

Pet of the Week:  "Cody" 


I am Cody, an 8 week-old neutered male, who enjoys a lot to clamber and purr... My yellow eyes are always on alert for whatever the world has to show me, I am naturally curious about my surroundings and I have no prejudices concerning other species, even large dogs. I love to be petted; I guarantee I will greet you everyday when you arrive home with a tall standing tail and a sweet vocalization, begging for caresses. My current foster home is spoiling me with Classical music. I love the works of Alfred Schnittke, specially the Stille Nacht suite since it sets me into a contemplative state. I don't know aggression in any of its forms; even though I have been kindly slapped in the face by another senior (13 year-old) male cat, I only reacted with curiosity: after all, I believe that it really works for me to see no evil, hear no evil, and say no evil.  Let me know if you think we are one for the other!

Soy Cody, un macho esterilizado con 8 semanas de edad y me gusta jugar y ronronear. Mis ojos amarillos siempre buscan lo que el mundo me quiere ensenar, soy naturalmente curioso de las cosas a mi alrededor y no tengo prejuicios sobre otras especias, incluso los perros grandes. Me gusta que me acaricien y te garantizo que te dare la bienvenida todos los dias cuando llegas a casa queriendo que me des amor. Mi casa de acogida me tiene chiquiado con la música clásica. Me encantan los sonidos de Alfred Schnittke, especialmente el Stille Nacht suite ya que me pone de un humor contemplativo. No conozco la agresión, aunque otro gato mayor me ha abofeteado en la cara, solo reacciono con curiosidad: después de todo, creo que es mejor no ver, escuchar ni decir mal. Avisame si crees que somos uno para el otro.
