The humpback whales that visit Sayulita each year, for many, are part of the true magic of the area. Each winter, usually in mid-November, the large and charismatic North Pacific humpback whales are spotted swimming down the Sayulita coast, announcing their presence by their signature blows or breaching as they travel, and assembling in large numbers to breed and calve. By the end of December to around the start of February, the number of whales that you may encounter on a boat trip from Sayulita can be astounding. However, in the latest U.S. Government’s NOAA global review of the species’ status in 2016, the population of Mexican humpback whales was classified as “threatened”, and for those that swim through Nayarit waters and continue on down to Central America were labeled as “endangered”.

In my last column I promised you Butter Burgers. Well, I made them last night and did not feel that they were worthy of a column. So today I am sharing with you a recipe for a French Apple Tart. I love the recipes from Jen Segal. Her blog is called “Once Upon a Chef”, and Jen always has great recipes to share. If you have never followed her, I strongly recommend checking out her blog. I made this recipe of hers for a morning coffee party the other day, and it really was a hit. This delicious cake is a perfect sweet treat for a Sayulita evening, afternoon, or even a morning with coffee. All of the ingredients for this cake are available in our Sayulita tiendas.

I set out with four friends from Sayulita for a Sunset Sail aboard the Velero Viva. As we left Sayulita it was hot, humid and sunny; we were looking forward to getting out on the water. The closer we got to Nuevo Vallarta, there were ominous dark clouds over Banderas Bay, and it looked like rain. Velero Viva is docked at the Puerto Vallarta Yacht Club, which is located in Nuevo Vallarta-- just a quick thirty minute drive from Sayulita. There is ample parking in the underground garage at the adjacent shopping center.

I recently discovered that creating a tortilla shell from a bacon weave is now my go-to recipe anytime I want a fun and savory breakfast! Yes, it can be more work than preparing your standard or regular bacon and eggs on a lovely Sayulita weekend morning, but I love this recipe so much that I don’t mind the extra couple of steps it requires to make. All the ingredients for this breakfast burrito are readily and easily available in almost all of our Sayulita tiendas.

Have you ever eaten or made fish “en papillote”? I hadn’t until a recent trip to Tonela, where just by luck we happened upon a restaurant that had it on the menu! I fell in love with the wonderful, delicate, and flavorful fish so much that we went the next day so that I could order it again. I had to figure out how to be able to make this dish at home in Sayulita so that we could enjoy it. I was delighted to find out that this is one of the simplest meals to make, and can be prepared with a nice filet of white fish or even salmon. No need to turn on a hot oven in our humid Sayulita climate. This fish cooks beautifully on your barbecue or grill—a perfect meal on a hot Sayulita summer day.

A few days before I had planned to do an interview with new business Fix-Boyz Sayulita, my cell-phone screen shattered into bits and broke to the point of no return. Oh the irony! It was a Sunday afternoon, and I of course was freaking out as a busy work week was about to begin. Like many people, I rely heavily on my phone for communication with work and friends, so I was stressing out about what to do for the fastest and most effective solution. After making a call to the Fix-Boyz Sayulita, they went above and beyond to accommodate my needs and opened the store just to help me out, even though they were closed that day. Thus, I ended up going to Fix-Boyz Sayulita not just to do the interview, but as a client with an actual phone emergency. I cannot begin to tell you how impressed I was with their service! I dropped off my phone for them to fix, and in just one hour, my phone was completely restored with a new screen; it looked brand new. I couldn’t believe it! The Fix-Boyz Sayulita are truly miracle workers and are the only business in town that offers this kind of service to help with your phone troubles or emergencies.
