A Good Night Sleep For All: 
Noise Control Comes to Sayulita


Just as Puerto Vallarta did decades ago, all growing towns have had to solve the problem of balancing a healthy nightlife with the community's need for peace and a good night's sleep. It is now Sayulita's turn. Earlier in the month a coalition of community stakeholders came together to meet with State and Municipal officials to address this critical issue. While Mexico has clear rules governing live and amplified music coming from bars, restaurants, and nightclubs, the problem for our community has been a lack of enforcement. That is about to change.

Pro Sayulita: People Make a Difference
By Jack Jones

Father Ignacio with Tracie Willis of Sayulimpia

Eric Steinman and Tracie Willis of Pro Sayulita have done volunteer work for Sayulimpia for many years. Tracie dreamed of garbage receptacles all over town and garbage cans around the plaza seating area. Eric dreamed of replacing all the Styrofoam carry out containers with organic biodegradable products. Many years of effort has made both dreams come true. Father Ignacio who has lead and cooperated with many civic projects recently chose biodegradable plates and cups furnished by Eric Steinman. Eric purchased the products and he and Tracie have cooperated in getting village businesses to use them and now Father Ignacio has chosen them for the church annual picnic. Dreams and people make the difference.


Bite This: Los Corazones - Heart to Beat
By Ed Schwartz


At Los Corazones, a cozy, ultra-charming restaurant across the street from the church, there are red hearts all over the place -on the walls, iron work and even on the delicious asparagus soup.  Just to give the place a shot of extra romance, there are lanterns on the table casting a nice glow. And, although the restaurant is small, what's coming out of the kitchen is big news for diners who like delicious food, lovingly made and beautifully presented. Read full review.


CVIS: The Importance of our 
Costa Verde Parent Community

Pets in Sayulita: Mom, Can We Keep It?
By Melisa Schelvan

Photo by Luke Schelvan

Many things will pass through the lives of our children as they grow-leaving impressions, memories and sometimes lessons. My children often talk wistfully about our chocolate lab, Stormy, whom we left behind with family when we moved to Sayulita. Stormy is getting old and intolerant of traveling, but in the minds of our kids she is perfect still. Thinking about Stormy makes me keenly aware of our current pet-less status, so it is with a little nostalgia that I enjoy the animals of Sayulita.  Read more

Sayulitanimals: Successful Spay & Neuter Clinic Held in San Quintin


Sayulitanimals just finished up another successful 2 day spay and neuter clinic in San Quintin. We were requested to go and sterilize in this small village, because the situation there is rather severe. During this short time we witnessed many starving and neglected animals. We were blessed to have Emily L'Hoist with her "Cambiando Cultura" program go into the local school and do a presentation on animal welfare, animal cruelty, proper care of animals and the importance of spay and neuter. Her talk in the class had a huge impact on the local kids and when they were released from school they were eager to get their dogs and cats in line to have them spayed and neutered. Read more.

Pet of the Week: "Charlie"
Hola! I am Charlie, a beautiful long haired female cat who was found abandoned in some bougainvillaeas in Sayulita.  I am young and very healthy. I can be somewhat aloof at times, because I am independent but am very sweet. I love chasing lizards in the yard. I am looking for a "fur-ever" home where I have the freedom to play outside and an owner to love.  Let my friends at Sayulitanimals know if I spark our interest.
