Greetings to our 8,176 subscribers,  

Margarita at Leyz'as Welcome Summer! It is officially summer now and personally I'm welcoming the hotter weather and change of pace in town. Though the tourism season has calmed down there are still many long-term foreign residents in Sayulita that will be spending the next few summer months in the local community. Every year it seems more and more people are calling Sayulita their home during the summer season. If it's too hot to handle for you and you have decided to beat the heat and take a little summer vacation away from Sayulita, I wish everyone safe travels this year.
Summer in Sayulita also means many businesses and restaurants will have special summer hours or close at some point during our low season. For a list of restaurants catering to summer residents and the ones closing their doors, please read the below restaurant summer schedule article. It is the time of year to relax, embrace the heat and perhaps sip on a refreshing margarita like the one at Leyza's Restauant pictured above.
The temperatures sure have increased in the past couple of weeks and currently we are sitting at about 30 degrees celcius (even at sunset). The question on everyone's mind is "when is it going to finally rain?". Sayulita has had a few light rain showers the past week and slight rain fall at night, but locals and residents are expecting the first heavy rainfall of the year soon to cool things down! If you will be enjoying the summer solstice here in Sayulita tonight you can expect a beautiful sunset on this longest day of the year!

Saludos a nuestros 8,176 lectores  


Bienvenido verano! Oficialmente es verano ahora y personalmente doy la bienvenida al clima más caloroso y la tranquilidad en el pueblo. Aunque la temporada de turismo ha calmado, aún hay muchos residentes extranjeros que van a pasar el verano con la comunidad local. Parece que cada año hay más gente quedándose para vivir en Sayulita durante el verano. Si hace demasiado calor para ti y quieres escapar de Sayulita y tomar vacaciones este verano, les deseo a todos felices vacaciones y que viajen con cuidado.


El verano en Sayulita significa que mucho negocios y restaurantes cierran por la temporada. Ver una lista de restaurantes abiertos para los residentes de Sayulita este verano y los que van a cerrar en el artículo de horarios de verano de restaurantes. Es la época del año en que es momento de relajarse, aceptar el calor y disfrutar una margarita refrescante como la de Leyza's en la foto arriba.


Las temperaturas han aumentado en las últimas semanas y actualmente estamos a 30 celcius (al atardecer también). La pregunta es "¿cuando va a llover por fin?" Sayulita ha recibido poquita lluvia pero los locales y residentes esperan que llueva fuerte pronto para refrescar todo. Si vas a celebrar el solsticio de verano, el atardecer va a ser muy bonito en este dia más largo del año.


Gracias por leer El Sayulero

Eight in the Plaza: Sayulita's

Plus two in front of the church! This green wastebasket project has been a community venture, led by Grupo Pro Sayulita and Tracie from Choco Banana. A true project highlight has been the outstanding support and donations received from the local community. Everyone has come together, including the "padre" of Sayulita plaza's iconic church, who graciously supported the project! Read more

Dinner Event Keeps People Employed 
and Streets Clean

 By Riley Hunter


The group Gente Trabajando or "people working," is a non-profit volunteer organization that has banded together with people from all over Mexico. Their mission is to help people without jobs support themselves in times of need. As most volunteer organizations, they rely on donations for funding, and with the low season coming, they anticipated a forthcoming lack of jobs in the Sayulita area. To help keep desperate times at bay, Gente Trabajando coordinator Michael Alejandro Castro or "Alex," teamed up with Sayulimpia and merged the two, creating an all-star clean up crew to keep people employed and streets clean!  More


El grupo "Gente Trabajando" es una organizacion sin animo de lucro que ha unido gente de todos lados de Mexico. Su mision es ayudar a gente sin trabajos mantenerse solos en los tiempos duros. Como la mayoria de organizaciones de voluntarios, dependen de donacionnes y con la temporada baja aqui, anticipan una falta de trabajos en el area de Sayulita. Para ayudar a la gente en estos momentos duros, el coordinador de la organizacion Gente Trabajando, Alex se unio con Sayulimpia y las dos organizaciones ha creado un equipo increible de gente ya empleado y las calles de Sayulita ya mas limpias. Mas

Pueblo Magico: A Bird's Tale

  Although I enjoyed a trip to the Serengeti and another trip to an animal park in India, I'm not a real animal person; I'm a city kid. Since spending winters in Mexico, I've observed how close to nature we are on a regular basis.  Birds, especially, fly and land all around us. Our house is situated high on a hill, and once in a while, a bird will mistake our windows as open space and hit the glass hard.  We've lost one or two, but most get stunned hard and then recover after a while.  The other day, a female oriole slammed hard and I discovered it almost dead.  It finally moved its head a bit and rolled over (not a good sign), but ended up standing once again.  I gave it space and time and after an hour or two, I checked on it - actually I checked it quite often. Read More


Aunque me gusto el viaje al Serengeti y otro viaje a un parque de animales en la India, en realidad no soy fanatico de los animales. Soy de la ciudad. Desde que paso los inviernos en Mexico, he observado que tan cerca estamos a la naturaleza. Los aves vuelan muy cerca de nosotros. Nuestra casa esta situada en una colina, y de vez en cuando, un ave se equivoca y choca con nuestras ventanas. Hemos perdido unos aves asi pero por lo general se quedan sorprendidos, dan la vuelta y vuelan. El otro dia, una hembra oriole choco fuerte y casi murio. Finalmente se movio la cabecita y se puso boca arriba (no es buen senal), pero al final se paro otra vez. Le di su espacio y tiempo y despues de una hora o dos fui a revisarlo, fui varias veces a revisarlo.  Leer Mas

Little Critters Come Out Before 
Heavy Rain Begins in Sayulita
Photo by Riley Hunter 


These little critters come out just before it's about to rain. If touched, they can leave an unpleasant odor behind. Although the "Chinches" can be found in Sayulita all year long, they are quite common to see in summer.


Pude ser que ves varios de estas criaturitas en Sayulita durante esta epoca del ano. Las "Chinche" salen antes de las lluvias de la temporada. Pueden dejar un olor feo si les tocas y aunque los puedes ver durante todo ano, son muy comunes en verano.
