Sayulita Fair

Sayulita Days are officially here and the town is celebrating their annual fair located at Sayulita's baseball field. Although the fair is open during the later parts of the afternoon, it's at night when all of Sayulita comes out with friends and family to play the many games and win a prize, throw a rock and win a can of beer or jump on a ride. This year there are even some adorable pony rides for kids. There is something for everyone at this year's Sayulita fair. Vendors are just beginning to set up their booths for the week where you can buy clothes, shoes, belts, jewelry, toys, candies and so much more. It's fun to just wander the fair grounds and see what's available or try your hand at throwing darts for a fun prize! The fair will continue this weekend until Sunday February 24th when Sayulita Days comes to an end on Flag day. Don't miss Sunday's Flag Day parade through town in the morning.


March 13 | Mark The Date:  Be sure to read this week's Grupo Pro Sayulita article announcing the upcoming GPS Fiesta Fundraiser taking place on March 13th. This year's fundraiser is a folkloric themed evening sure to be the event of the year.  


Thank you for reading El Sayulero. See you at the fair this weekend!

Días de Sayulita oficialmente llegaron y el pueblo celebra con la feria anual ubicada en el campo de béisbol. Aunque la feria abre también durante las tardes, es en la noche cuando todos del pueblo llegan con amigos y sus familias para jugar juegos, subir una maquina de feria o tirar piedras para ganar una cerveza. Hay algo para todos este ano y hasta caballitos para los niños. Los vendedores ya han llegado y hay muchas cosas que comprar como ropa, zapatos, joyería, juguetes y mucho más. Es divertido andar por la feria o tratar de ganar un premio tirando dardos. La feria continuara este fin de semana hasta el día de la bandera el 24 de febrero cuando los días de Sayulita terminan con un desfile en el pueblo en la mañana y festividades en la noche.


Lee el articulo de Grupo Pro Sayulita esta semana anunciando la Fiesta de GPS el 13 de marzo. El tema de la noche sera foklorico y sera el evento del ano. 


Gracias por leer El Sayulero. Nos vemos en la feria este fin de semana.

Along with the beautiful work of current contributor Donna Day (Photo of the Week), our newsletter and website will now be showcasing Georgia's skill at capturing Sayulita moments and local faces with a professional eye.


Georgia moved to Sayulita four years ago from New York City.  She first visited Sayulita in 1996, and Sayulita has always held a special place in her heart.  She desired a better quality of life, so she went back to NYC, packed her bags and two months later, moved to Sayulita.  "I probably work more hours here then I did in NYC, but I am so much healthier and happier and find there is a true balance to my life."  In NYC she worked in the fashion and photography industries.  Here in Sayulita she has Georgia Glennon Photography where she specializes in children and family portraits and Sayulita Childcare Services. She travels to NYC several times a year to work, but is happy to call Sayulita home.  Read Georgia's full bio


We look forward to bringing you Georgia's artistic shots directly to your screens.  Stay tuned to the El Sayulero to see her unique view of Sayulita and its wonderful sights and people.

Sayulita Is for Everybody:
Interview with Arturo Gangoiti   

By Timothy Kelly 

If you happen to be walking down Calle Gaviotas at night, next to El Mezcalito, you will most likely hear a warm welcome from Arturo Bermudez, inviting you in for a "shot" of his traditional mezcal and tequila drinks. Arturo was born in Tepic, and has spent a lot of his childhood there with his family. Family memories for Arturo are both important and pleasant. Tepic was not his only place of residence as a child. Arturo also spent some time in Guadalajara, the capitol of Jalisco, and in Uruapan, in the Western part of Michoacan. It seems that no matter where he was living, he was able to hold onto fond memories of his childhood. One of his favorites are the summer vacations that the family used to take to the beaches of Nayarit.  Read entire interview

Si vas caminando por Calle Gaviotas en la noche, al lado de  El Mezcalito, lo más probable es que escuchas una cálida bienvenida de Arturo Bermúdez, invitandote que tomes un "shot" de su mezcal y tequila tradicionales. Arturo nació en Tepic, y ha pasado una gran parte de su infancia allí con su familia. Recuerdos familiares de Arturo son importantes y agradables. Tepic no era su único lugar de residencia cuando era un niño. Arturo también pasó algún tiempo en Guadalajara, el capital de Jalisco, y en Uruapan, en la parte occidental de Michoacán. Parece que no importa donde vivía, fue capaz de aferrarse a recuerdos de su infancia. Uno de sus favoritos es cuando tomo vacaciones de verano con su familia que solía llevarlo a las playas de Nayarit.  Leer toda la entrevista

Pueblo Magico: Colorful Houses in Sayulita     


We live up in the hill with views of ocean, town and jungle.  I love sitting with a glass of wine and gazing around.  The houses pop up from the jungle settings.  Many are perched out from the steep hillsides in order to achieve those breathtaking ocean views. Houses are so delightfully clustered - there are the white houses that give the Mediterranian-Greek stacked village feeling; then there are houses of every color- from green, orange, mustard, yellow and even blue.  More

Parker is a 2 year old, black lab mix who is a loving and extremely affectionate boy. He was abandoned on the beach, but was very persistent about finding someone to take care of him. He is happy that his foster parents are feeding him and keeping him safe, but would love a real home. He loves people and dogs and would make the perfect loyal companion. Parker is healthy, neutered and ready to be in his "Fur-Ever" home. If interested in adopting Parker let us know!

Parker tiene dos anos y es una mezcla con labrador. Es muy carinoso y amigable. Fue abandonado en la playa, pero persistia encontrar a alguien que lo cuidara. Es muy contento en su casa de acogida donde le dan de comer y le dan seguridad, pero le encantaria encontrar una casa de verdad. Le encanta la gente y los otros perros y seria un leal amigo.

Photo of the Week: 
Girl with a Bird   

Photos by Donna Day Photography


One of the things I love about Sayulita is I never know what I'm going to see on my walks. Everyday I walk the beach on the North side of town and I love when I bump into something/someone like this: Girl with a Bird....sort of sounds like a book title.


Una de las cosas que me encanta de Sayulita es que nunca se que voy a encontrar durante mis caminatas. Todos los dias camino en la playa en el lado norte del pueblo y me encanta ver cosas o alquien como esta chica: Chica con un Pajaro... suena como titulo de un libro.
