Are you finding yourself bored during quarantine? Get the family together and spend some time trying out a new and fun recipe!. Everyone loves a good batch French fries; this recipe, however, for “Avocado Fries” is a healthier take on the classic and beloved snack, that everyone in the family will surely love! The best part is that it’s always Avocado season in Sayulita! I had not even heard of avocado fries until a couple of weeks ago; my husband and I happened upon them on the menu at one of the beach restaurants here in Sayulita! Being a foodie and because I love avocados, I just had to try them.

This month’s recipient of Sayulita Life’s $5,000 donation goes towards El Centro Creativo and their community theatre event. This year, El Centro wanted to put together a free theatre performance for the community of Sayulita as part of the culmination of the children’s theatre camp they run each year. In order to do so, they tracked down several top actors and actresses from Mexico City, and asked them to bring their skills and talents to the stage here in Sayulita for our enjoyment. Sayulita Life’s donation will go toward purchasing the flights for these actors in order to ensure their ability to come to our little pueblo, help teach and guide our youth, and put on a stellar performance for the whole town to enjoy!

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. Walking around can quickly become tiresome, especially in the heat, and cars or golf carts cannot always make it up big hills or on bumpy roads, and often are costly to rent. 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.

When going on vacation, people seem to always want to return home with a nice tan as their souvenir. In tropical, sunny Sayulita, it is common to see tourists and locals alike walking around with a nice sun-kissed tan; however, more often than not, we also commonly see people with badly burnt skin and harsh tan lines. Tan on the Run in Sayulita provides air-brushed, customized spray tanning in the comfort of your own home or vacation rental, so that you can get that perfect tropical vacation glow, without the fear of a sunburn or bad tan lines. Whether you’re vacationing in Sayulita, living here permanently, or here for a special occasion, Tan on the Run can benefit you. I talked with owner Laura Bird about her company and the reason why her airbrush tanning solution is so popular.

This month’s recipient of Sayulita Life’s $5,000 donation goes towards Sayulita’s Junior SUP, (stand up paddle) team. Since its founding, the Sayulita Junior SUP team has aimed to provide a safe and fun after school, extracurricular program for local youth to participate in, and to encourage our local youth to be involved in their community through a healthy, competitive, and encouraging atmosphere, which ultimately benefits their growth and development. Sayulita Life’s donation went toward the purchase of team uniforms and other gear to support the youth when traveling to races. I speak with team treasurer and parent Heather Vavra about Sayulita Life’s contribution, and more about the background and accomplishments of the Junior SUP team.

Located just one block from the main beach, and one block from the plaza, Wild Iris is the perfect, cozy little surf bar to lounge, chill out, listen to music, and enjoy a quality beverage while you take in Sayulita’s sights and people.
