Don Pedro's Breakfast
Sayulita Preserve

Greetings to our 8,216 subscribers,
A Couple cloudy days sure does not stop the beach goers in Sayulita. After some light rain drizzle Thursday morning, the beach soon filled up with families, surfers and paddle boarders enjoying a break from the hot sun and making the most of the day!
The season is definitely in full swing this week (as you can read in the article below) with loads of tourists, returning "locals" and wedding parties galore!  I really feel confident stating this will be Sayulita's best Season ever.


journal Le Journal de Montréal just published a fantastic review of Sayulita (with a link to SayulitaLife.com) detailing the many fabulous aspects of vacationing here in our village.  Brush up on your French or use an online translator to check out the article.

Thank you for reading El Sayulero

Sayulita Boutiques: Is High Season Here Yet?

 By Riley Hunter


As the weather cools down and the last rain storms pass over Sayulita's skies, the town of Sayulita opens up and becomes a bright, bustling, tourist attraction. El Sayulero was wondering exactly when the town changes from the sweltering, slow summer season to the fresh fall that is filled with tourists and fun. Read more


Ya que el clima se enfria y las ultimas tormentas de lluvia pasan por los cielos de Sayulita, el pueblo de Sayulita se convierte en un destino turistico. El Sayulero preguntaba a los duenos de tiendas cuando cambia el pueblo de verano a otono lleno de turistas y diversion. Leer mas

24-hour-a-day trash service in Sayulita?


No way!  Trash pick-up is only in the early mornings.  Trash placed in the street (or in a trash bin) after pick-up attracts more trash, is very unsightly, and poses a threat to our healthy community.  Here are a few tips to help keep Sayulita beautiful:
  1. Make sure trash is well secured in durable plastic bags. 
  2. Place trash where animals cannot access. 
  3. Only set out trash in the early mornings BEFORE pick-up.  (This applies to corner trash traps as well.) 
  4. Help remind your neighbors to follow these easy guidelines.  
Homeowners:  Trash from your rental house is your responsibility.  Please ensure your staff is following the above recommendations. 

Sayulita tiene servicio de recoleccion de basura 24 horas al dia?


No! La recoleccion de basura es solo temprano en las mananas. La basura que se saca despues de la recoleccion de basura atrae mas basura, es muy desagradable a la vista y perjudica nuestra comunidad saludable.

Aqui hay unas sugerencias para mantener Sayulita Bonito:

  1. Procurra que todas las bolsas de basura estan seguras y durables en bolsas de plastico.
  2. Coloque la basura donde animales no pueden alcanzarlo
  3. Saque la basura solo temprano en las mananas antes que pasen a recojerla. (esto se aplica a los botes de basura en las esquinas de las calles tambien)
  4. Recuerde a sus vecinos que hagan lo mismo.

Propietarios de Casas: Basura de sus casas en renta es su responsabilidad. Procurra que sus empleados sigan estas recomendaciones.

Real Estate Investment: Why Sayulita?

By Rod Rosile of Sayulita Investment Realty


When working with a potential real estate investor, I am often asked a variety of questions. But one question comes up frequently and I think it deserves some discussion. The question is: "Why Sayulita?"

I could mention the great climate, friendly people, beautiful beaches and sunny skies. I could talk about the laid back atmosphere and tropical lifestyle. (Who doesn't love dining in a great restaurant while wearing shorts and flip flops after a fun day on the beach?) Or, the welcoming international culture, indoor/outdoor living, fresh air, healthy food, activities, salsa dancing and romance under the stars. However, there is much more that makes Sayulita a great place to live and invest. But what makes Sayulita such a standout? Why invest here? Why live and/or retire here?  Read more

Cuando se trabaja con un potencial inversionista de bienes raíces, a menudo me preguntan una serie de preguntas. Pero una pregunta surge con frecuencia y creo que merece una discusión. La pregunta es: "¿Por qué Sayulita?"

Podría mencionar el buen clima, gente amable, hermosas playas y cielos soleados. Podría hablar de la atmósfera relajada y estilo de vida tropical. (¿Quién no ama a una cena en un buen restaurante mientras llevaba pantalones cortos y chanclas después de un día de diversión en la playa?) O bien, la cultura de acogida internacional, la vida interior / exterior, el aire puro, la comida sana, actividades, baile de la salsa y el romanticismo bajo las estrellas. Sin embargo, hay mucho más que hace Sayulita es un gran lugar para vivir e invertir. Pero lo que hace Sayulita un destacado ejemplo? ¿Por qué invertir aquí? ¿Por qué vivir y/o retirarse aquí?

Save Orangutans

 By Riley Hunter



Chocobana owner, Tracie Willis, is known to be a passionate eco-warrior who isn't afraid to raise her opinion on pressing issues, all while serving up delicious coffee and food at one of Sayulita's most popular and well-known restaurants. Recently, Tracie went on an epic journey into the jungles of Indonesia and Malaysia to learn about and help protect Orangutans who have holed up high in the canopies of their rainforests to seek refuge, as humans devastate their native lands. Read more

Get ready to celebrate!

Bite This: Season Officially Opens with Pancakes at Rollie's

By Ed Schwartz 



A sure indicator of the opening of Sayulita's season is Rollie's dishing up its pancakes-and--and a lot more.  The El Sayulero eating team was there for Rollie's opening day, Sunday November 10th and the place was packed from the opening bell. The pancakes, three of them to an order, are as big as the plate and will knock out your hunger pangs until at least dinner.


Lots of great egg dishes and the kitchen is always ready to stir up something special. Rollie's for breakfast goes together like ham and eggs, a very appropriate analogy, except you get bacon!  The bacon is nice and crisp and the orange juice is freshly squeezed. You bet!


La senal que ya es temporada alta en Sayulita es cuando Rollie's empieza a servir sus hotcakes y muchos! El Sayulero estaba ahi en la apertura de Rollie's el domingo 10 de noviembre y el lungar estaba lleno desde la primera hora. Los hotcakes, tres en cada orden son grandes y hara que tu hambre se desaparezca hasta la cena.


Hay muchos platillos de huevos tambien y la cocina siempre esta lista para servir algo especial para desayunar. El tocino tambien es crujiente y el jugo de naranja es fresca!
