Greetings to our 8,194 subscribers,  

Trent from Oregon This past week Sayulita has had some pretty cloudy days, overcast skies and the slight dribble of rain fall during the night, but that hasn't stopped beach goers and surfers from enjoying some of the biggest waves Sayulita has seen in a very long time. The swell came in Thursday and offered up some incredible surfing conditions. Beginners were a little intimidated by the larger-than-normal sets coming in but local surf enthusiasts and pros were having a blast. Locals and visitors on the beach this morning said yesterday's surf was the best they had seen all year. Trent from Oregon (pictured right) said he has come to Sayulita three times to surf and this week has been the best surf he's experienced in Sayulita. "My leash broke out there so I had to come in but these waves are great and yesterday was even better" said Trent. This big swell is expected to last over the weekend so if you are brave enough and experienced enough, you may want to take advantage of Sayulita's surf conditions today and tomorrow.

Saludos a nuestros 8,194 lectores  

Durante esta semana en Sayulita se ha nublado el cielo y ha llovido levemente en las noches pero eso no ha detenido a los surfistas disfrutar de buenas olas, unas de las mejores olas que Sayulita ha visto en mucho tiempo. El swell llego el jueves ofreciendo muy buenas condiciones de surf. Los principiantes se intimidaban un poco pero para los locales y profesionales era un perfecto momento para surfear. Los locales y visitantes en la playa esta mañana dijeron que han sido las mejores olas todo este ano. Trent de Oregon (en la foto a la derecha) dice que ha llegado a Sayulita tres veces para surfear y esta semana ha sido el mejor surf que ha experimentado en Sayulita. "mi leash se rompió y tenia que salir pero estas olas son geniales y ayer fue aun mejor" dice Trent. El swell va a durar este fin de semana y si tienes el valor y la experiencia no vas a querer perder del surf hoy y mañana.

Gracias por leer El Sayulero

Gringo Hill Heads to Highway

 By Riley Hunter

Gringo Hill Heads to Highway


The Bottleneck, Dead Man's Curve, The Alamo; these are the names of some rather treacherous obstacles that line the one road into and out-of Gringo Hill. After many slammed breaks and near collisions, the community of Gringo Hill teamed up and said, "no more!" 


Donn Sanders, Santo Cominos, and Gabriel from Sayulita Costal Properties decided to team up and make this long discussed project a reality. The community had long been tired of the narrow, winding road that bottlenecks just before the beer depository at the entrance to Gingo Hill; and there had long been talks of building a road to the Punta Mita Highway to avoid big SUVs trying to squeeze in between the massive wall of the Alamo and the opposing wall face. However, nothing seemed to make much headway. A good guess as to why would be, everyone was out surfing. But, worries continued to arise about the safe evacuation in event of an emergency, and no one wanted to ding-up their golf carts or collide surfboards either! More

The "Sandboni": 
Sayulita's New Beach Clean Machine
 By Riley Hunter

With sprawling Semana Santa crowds, an almost year-round flow of visitors, and of course Sayulita's dear dog population; our beloved beach is indeed at times in need of a little spring cleaning! In mid-May, the "Sandboni" made its big debut on the beach, and has been out a number of times to clean since. Much like the famed Zamboni ice resurfacers of hockey, the "Sandboni" is a drivable machine that filters and picks up trash on Sayulita Beach and lays down a nice, clean, layer of sand with the pattern of a freshly raked Zen garden.  More

Pueblo Magico: A Change of Pace Below P.V.

Pueblo Magico


From Sayulita, it takes less than an hour to the Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta.  PV is really a nice sized city with everything there.  We've explored most of the barrios and of course their restaurants.  For something a bit more out of the way - but not too far - try to drive 30 minutes south of PV.  A one-day adventure that I've already written about is a trip to the Botantical Gardens, where you can enjoy a sensational lunch.  We've been to Yalapa, which can also be a fun over-night for those who don't want to pack too much into a day. More  


De Sayulita, se tarda menos de una hora en la zona romántica de Puerto Vallarta. PV es realmente una ciudad de buen tamaño con todo lo que hay. Hemos explorado la mayor parte de los barrios y por supuesto sus restaurantes. Para algo un poco más fuera del camino - pero no demasiado - tratar de conducir 30 minutos al sur de Puerto Vallarta. Una aventura de un día que ya he escrito acerca de un viaje a los Jardines Botantical, donde se puede disfrutar de una comida sensacional. Hemos estado en Yalapa, que también puede ser una diversión durante la noche para aquellos que no quieren hacer las maletas demasiado en un día. Mas

Sayulitanimals Expands it's 
Role with Community Education
 By Donna Evans for Sayulitanimals
Cambiando Cultura

Although you may know SayulitAnimals best for our spay/neuter clinics, we actually have a four-part mission, one of which is to provide community education in animal welfare. Up to now, our emphasis on community education has been limited to modeling good treatment of pets and talking to neighbors, friends, and children about showing compassion towards animals. We are moving community education up on the list of priorities and working with Emily L'Hoist, who has designed a program called "Cambiando Clutura" (Changing Culture), targeted towards children.. More

Pet of the Week:  "Pimienta"   



Hola! I am Pimienta, a female, senior dog from Sayulita. My owners can't keep me anymore. I also only walk on 3 legs due to a car that hit me in the past and I was never taken to the vet's to get it fixed. I arrived at Sayulitanimals emaciated and covered in bugs! I am now on the road to recovery and feeling much better! I enjoy the simple things in life like going on short walks, napping in the sun and eating chicken! I would love to find a new home where I can live out my golden years and feel safe. Let me know if you are interested in getting to know me and don't forget "Old dogs can learn new tricks too!".

Hola! Soy Pimienta, una hembra mayor de Sayulita. Mis duenos ya no pueden quedarse conmigo. Camino en 3 patas porque una vez un carro me atropello y no me llevaron al veterinario. Llegue a Sayulitanimals cubierto en bichos. Ahora estoy recuperandome y me siento mejor. Me gustan las cosas sencillas de la vida como ir a caminar, descansar en el sol y comer pollo. Me gustaria encontrar una casa donde puedo vivir mis anos dorados y sentirme seguro. Avisame si te interesa conocerme y no olvides que los perros viejos pueden aprender nuevos trucos tambien!
