MexiTreks has been around in Sayulita since 2013, and offers clients fun jungle hikes, sea kayaking, snorkeling tours, and more, both in Sayulita and its surrounding areas. However, more than just a tour company, MexiTreks prides themselves on taking the opportunity to educate others about our local ecosystems and environmental preservation; they are dedicated to helping the local community, and to sharing their passion for nature. One way MexiTreks will show its commitment to their mission is by hosting a special fundraiser hike to Monkey Mountain on Monday, May 27th, 2019 for the local non-profit organization, SayulitAnimals.

Alex and I, (Judy), live in a small village in Central Northern British Columbia, called Vanderhoof. Some years ago, I was looking for a yoga retreat and stumbled across the town of Sayulita. When I googled more about Sayulita, it seemed like a great place to go and visit. I decided instead of going on a retreat, I would invite my husband along and just take a few yoga classes, as Sayulita offered so many options with affordable drop-in rates. The more affordable prices meant we could afford to have my husband and brother come along. For our first visit, we stayed at Los Corales suites. It was a great space with amazing hosts. We enjoyed fishing, surfing, yoga, and of course the many restaurants, including the Mama Mia Pizza (which is no longer around). Because of how much we loved Sayulita after that first trip, the following year we loaded up our family and rented a house (Casa Suenos). With our 5 daughters, spouses and our first grand-child, we all enjoyed 10 wonderful days together experiencing Sayulita’s magic of beach massages, beaches, and making fun memories with our family.

Sayulita’s Junior Surf and Sup Teams are heading to Colima, Manzanillo, on May 25th, 2019, through May 31st, to compete for the first time in the Mexican National Olympic games. After two weeks of training, the youth are ready to compete against the best, although many of them have been surfing or paddle boarding for their whole lives in preparation. This is the first time in history that the Nayarit state team has been represented at the Mexican National Olympic games, due to the requirement that the team members must also be enrolled in school, and also because this is the first time that surfing has been acknowledged as a federal sport by the government of Nayarit. I talk with the team coach, Geovani Perez, about the team and the excitement over this competition.

Vallarta Lifestyles Restaurant Week is a two week food festival in Puerto Vallarta, as well as the greater Nayarit area. The festival takes place each year from May 15th to June 10th. During these two weeks, participating restaurants offer their guests special innovative three-course menus to delight anyone seeking to explore our destination’s outstanding cuisine at a reduced price. Typically, most restaurants that participate in this festival are located in Puerto Vallarta, however this year, local restaurant Bistro Organico in San Pancho will also be participating. I speak with Gisela Marin from Bistro Organico about their involvement in this year’s festival.
