September in Sayulita tends to be one long hot steamy month, and what could be better than a light, healthy breakfast to start the day? Let me introduce you to Turkish eggs. I know what you’re thinking… yogurt and eggs? But let me assure you this is one of the best combinations I’ve ever had and it is now officially my favorite breakfast/brunch/midday snack. Picture this, a creamy dollop of labneh/yogurt, two perfectly poached eggs, drizzled (heavily) with chili garlic butter, topped with herby za’atar, optional goats cheese, salt, and pepper accompanied by some warm toasted bread. Voila! This dish…

Sayulita Life’s $5000 donation will go to the Jaibitos Jr, the local junior baseball team. The donation will help buy 5 dozen new baseballs for their pitching machine which was donated a few years ago. This is very beneficial for training as it is used with a lot of repetition for the children to bat. With this donation, the baseball team will be able to continue training and competing in local events. We had the opportunity to hear from the head coach of the Jaibitos, Fernando Lopez, who told us a little about the young baseball team. Can you tell…

Burrata, Tomatoes And Basil Oh My! Here’s a super easy, throw-together salad recipe, perfect for hot Sayulita days or nights! I love sourcing unusual fresh ingredients when possible, so I jumped at the opportunity to get my hands on some home-grown yellow, orange and marbled tomatoes. These tomato varieties are quite easy to grow at home, you can get seeds packet at places like Home Depot, or even online. If you manage to get your hands on a more exotic tomato I encourage you to save a few seeds and replant, soon enough you’ll have enough tomatoes to create this…

Sueños Restaurant, one of the newer fine dining experiences in Sayulita, is at the top of my personal favorites list. Located in the heart of town, the space is beautifully designed, oozes ambiance and surprisingly more spacious than you would imagine. A narrow walkway lined with booths leads onto a dimly lit room with a pool table, a classy bar and an open concept kitchen. The dishes are not only creative but delicious and served with a beautiful attention to detail. Imagine deep fried burrata pizza and melt in your mouth chocolate salamis. We had the opportunity to hear from…

We were lucky enough to speak with Dr Aaron about his story and how his business started. Can you tell me a bit about yourself?  I am a practitioner from NZ who came to Mexico to attend a workshop on Neurobehavioural change. I got my moneys worth, because my life changed plenty after that. How did you land in Sayulita?  I initially planned to visit Sayulita for 3 days, but after  being in Mexico City after the…
