A HUGE thank you goes out to each and every one of you who helped to make the final steps of the Lifeguard Tower Project a success! This truly was a village project. Some of you maybe helped financially by donating to the cause, some of you did physical work on the towers themselves, and others were supporters on an emotional level (particularly for me)! This was a labor of love for our community and by our community, and now we can say that our Sayulita beaches are safer knowing that we have these structures in place.

Have you ever tried baking when the humidity is very high? Many recipes come out just fine, but many other recipes just won’t work! Today I had one of those “just won’t work” attempts. I really wanted to make Cheese Gougeres (French cheese puffs), but the humidity of 95% got the best of me, or shall I say, got the worst of me! The cheese puffs simply would NOT puff up. Thus, I was scrolling through some of the recipes I had saved that I knew would work…humidity or not. Lime Mousse is such a wonderful and refreshingly light dessert, I knew I had to make it! I chose lime rather than lemon, because limes are a basic staple in every Sayulita tienda. The result was so yummy, I knew that I just had to share the recipe with you. I am hoping that you love it as much as I do; this could be the perfect treat to enjoy with your loved ones on this Valentine’s Day!

Las Mujeres de Sayulita is a growing and powerful group of women in the Sayulita community working together to bring environmental awareness and action to our Pueblo Magico. Many stores in the community as well as our neighboring areas such as Punta de Mita are already implementing the “no more plastic bag” idea, but more work is needed in order to spread awareness, and help reduce plastic waste. The Mujeres’ first and recent project as a team was to reduce the use of plastic bags in our community, and it has proven to be a large success. Working in coordination with the 9th grade students at Colegio Costa Verde school, they have helped to reduce the amount of plastic bags used in Sayulita by providing a program for reusable canvas bags, and a plan for how the local stores and tiendas can use them.

Ruben’s Annual Ranchero Fundraiser Party was a huge success again this year! The Ranchero Party at Ruben’s ranch is an absolute blast, and each year is greatly looked forward to. The party supports the amazing organization Grupo Pro Sayulita, which helps our community in many wonderful ways. The party was on Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019, and was very well attended. All proceeds from the ticket sales go directly back into our community by aiding the various projects of Grupo Pro Sayulita that help make our Pueblo Magico a better place

Mar Plata Restaurant in San Pancho, which first opened its doors in 2005, is known for its interesting fusion of Mexican, Argentinian, and Belgian cuisine served in a unique and rustic setting. With a variety of menu items, from steak and seafood to pasta, and specialty house-made craft cocktails, Mar Plata Restaurant is not what most would expect to find in San Pancho, just minutes away from Sayulita. I ask the head chef, Ramses Manneck, and lead mixologist, Tony Galea, to tell me more about the restaurant & their experiences in the industry.
