From the moment that you walk into OZean Grill & Bar in Sayulita, you feel that open, relaxed, and friendly vibe that you would expect from a surf town like Sayulita— a perfect mix between ambiance, architecture and service that reflect as a preamble to the dishes that you are going to experience at this beautiful location. Starting from the second that you are walking towards your table, you find yourself facing the crystal wine cellar full of top-quality wines from around the world. When you sit at your table you can feel the gentle breeze coming from the fans surgically positioned around the restaurant, so you forget about the heat outside. You then take a deep breath and look upwards to find the beautiful, over-sized wooden chandeliers hanging from the glass ceiling 10 meters above you; based on these impressions, you know that the food that you will experience at OZean Grill & Bar in Sayulita is going to be anything but average.

It is a sleepy, sunny, Saturday afternoon. The sky is blue without a single cloud. The heat is pulsing, glaring, and bouncing off the cobblestone streets in blurry waves. I arrive at Don Pedro’s around 1:00 p.m. It is busy, but not overwhelmingly so. I am immediately struck by a feeling of tranquility and refreshment. The restaurant has a beautiful thatched palapa-style design, which offers seating indoors but with an open-air concept, meaning you are still able to see the main beach no matter where you sit, and a wonderful breeze flows through the restaurant.

Origenes Interior, nestled next to Naty’s Kitchen on Marlin Street, is Sayulita’s newest store from designer and owner David Luna and his business partner Pepe Kabande. Origenes Interior is David and Pepe’s third store they have opened here in Sayulita over the last four years; their first two stores proved to be very successful, but David and Pepe wanted to open Origenes Interior because it has its own unique concept which makes it stand apart from their previous stores.

I have a goofy, sometimes anxious, easily-excited young dog named Kona. When it came time for me to choose where to take my pup for her first vet appointment here in Sayulita, I was a bit apprehensive. My girl tends to be a giant baby when it comes to going to the vet. As many pet owners can relate, my dog does all of the classic, nervous, “I know I’m at the vet” behaviors: the overly loud fake yawns, the whining, whimpering, and non-stop wiggling butt. Although sometimes comical, this situation is often just as stressful and uncomfortable for the pet owner as it is for the pet. However, when I got to Veterinarian of Sayulita, all of my fears (and Kona’s, too,) melted away. I chose Veterinarian of Sayulita due to the glowing recommendations I received about Noelia and Jose from numerous community members, and they all turned out to be true. It couldn’t have been more of a pleasant experience! My dog was happy and calm, and Noelia was gentle and caring while taking care of her. Veterinarian of Sayulita is now my go-to spot for all things for my pet.

For a long time, tattoos have been negatively stigmatized in our society (and sometimes still are). “Only criminals get tattoos!” “Tattoos are for gang bangers!” You’ll never be able to get a professional job with all of those! I’ve heard these sentiments expressed often. However, in today’s modern culture, more so than ever, this negative stigma on tattoos is quickly dissolving. Chops, the owner and lead tattoo artist at Papillion Family Studios here in Sayulita is profoundly talented, professional, and deeply passionate for his craft. Chops is unmistakably and wonderfully, Chops—even his name is intriguing. What does “Chops” really mean? Is it a guise, or some kind of pen name? Is he a “one name only” artist, like Prince or Cher? Chops’s intrigue and signature style are not only in his name, but in his entire persona. Whether it be the black, short sleeve button-up he wears daily (only the top button buttoned, of course, revealing his fully tattooed stomach), his long, red, ZZ Top inspired beard, or his kind heart and tell-it-like-it-is personality, Sayulita knows Chops when we see him. I talk with Chops about his career in tattooing, his signature style, and about his tattoo shop, Papillion Family Studios.
