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.

Sayuquila Tequila & Art is one of the newest liquor shops to open up in Sayulita. However, this particular store is more than just a place to buy your favorite tequila. Sayuquila Tequila & Art is unique in the fact that it is more of a concept store than just a liquor store. The owner, Jose Luis, tells me about his store, why he opened it, and how it is special.

The sun was just starting to cast shades of orange and pink in the sky at 7:30 a.m. last Tuesday, and the beach was void of people, a rare sight in Sayulita. An epitome of tranquility, waves softly lapped the panga, as Jorge, owner of Sayulita Kayak and Surf Fishing Tours, navigated the small boat out to sea for a day of fishing!

Beata Stankiewicz-Sayulita Singer and Musician is someone special here in Sayulita. When I watched her sing, she grabbed my attention; there is something about the way that she carries herself that immediately radiates an impression of glamor and class— and when she sings, it is nothing short of beautiful, elegant, and graceful.

Nestled in the heart of Sayulita, and located in the Plaza Agora, is Matiz restaurant. The setting is elegant, simple, and clean with a European bistro flair. Victor, owner and operator of the restaurant, envisioned generous portions for sharing and that’s what to expect when you dine at Matiz. Bring your family and friends, sit near the fountain, order a cucumber margarita, and enjoy the open setting. There is Ladies Night on Thursday’s (9pm) and Jazz music on Friday evenings.
