Sandra Vazquez is a local Mexican artist who uses natural materials and high-quality craftsmanship to create one-of-a-kind, handmade arts and crafts that reflect Mexican folklore and ethnic style. Her pieces are playful, colorful, whimsical, and vibrant. While her primary revenue comes from the sale of her products as wedding favors or keepsakes, she also sells her art as gifts, souvenirs, or for home décor accents. I talk with Sandra about her passion behind her creations and her background which led her to pursue her online business, Mexikan Art Studio.

Have you ever looked at a label of an item at a grocery store and read the list of ingredients? How surprised were you by all of the names that you did not recognize? All too often, we see ingredients in our food that sound like something you’d use in a chemistry lab experiment. These same foods with ingredients we can’t even pronounce sometimes end up on menus in restaurants. However, at Veggie Land, one of Sayulita’s newest restaurants which opened in 2017, you can be assured that all of the ingredients used in their menu are natural, real, and fresh. At Veggie Land, they use simply wholesome, healthy, and raw ingredients combined with local produce to create healthy dining options for our community of Sayuilta.

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.

“It’s not about money.” This is a phrase not often heard in our modern, high-tech, fast- paced world of today, and even in our little town of Sayulita because of its massive growth over the years from a sleepy little fishing village to a bustling tourist destination. However, when talking with Nick and Sebastian, the owners and leaders of El Centro Creativo, the Community Center for Sayulita, I hear this phrase genuinely articulated several times. And I know they mean it.
