This month’s donation recipient from Sayulita Life goes to Pro Sayulita as they continue to work closely with lawyers and environmental specialists to stop the new IMPLAN Development Plan for Sayulita. We are all aware of the difficult times we are facing due to Covid-19, but in order to continue forward with this project, the community of Sayulita needs additional funds; Pro Sayulita’s goal is to raise $25,000 USD. Sayulita Life’s donation will go toward raising funds to help our community stop this development plan, also known as the “Saving Sayulita Project”. The economy will surely be affected negatively by this plan if it is not stopped, opening the doors of IMPLAN for "special favors" to be asked, like the approval of illegal constructions, and taking advantage of height limits on new builds.

Getting around in Sayulita has never been easier! With so much to see in our amazing pueblo, Baikas electric bike rentals in Sayulita makes it possible for you to get to anywhere in Sayulita- whether it be to jungle paths, secluded beaches, dirt roads, or up large hills.

Baikas are fun, easy to use for any age, eco-friendly, and can get you anywhere in Sayulita at a quick pace. I talk to the owner of Baikas more about their electric bikes and what makes them so unique.

Yoga can mean many different things to different people, and often it can feel overwhelming to find the right type of yoga or the right type of studio to meet your yoga needs. At Sayulita Yoga Studio, Iyengar Yoga is the central practice.

Sayulita Yoga Center is the right choice for yogis looking to learn about yoga just as much as to practice and engage in it.
