Once upon a time, not so long ago, in a small town named after another small town (Sayula), lived a small girl foreign to the land. This little girl spent her days running around barefoot, swimming in the ocean and exploring the surrounding jungle. Sometimes she was chased by a Guacamaya (a big beautiful Macaw, this one was red, blue and green) on her way to school, and she would flee, running as quick as her little legs could carry her. The source of the Guacamayas anger was her jealousy of the little girls friendship with its owner, another kid…

You might have seen us post the monthly flyer in El Sayulero for a while now- every first Tuesday of the month for the past year our community has been getting together to do some good- clean up the beach. But this get-together didn’t just happen on it’s own! This month we sat down with Greer Fawcett, the activist who put together this wonderful event and keeps it going- with the help of many others!  Hi Greer! Can you introduce yourself and tell us a little bit of how you came to Sayulita?My name is Greer Fawcett and I moved…

Hi! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? Sure, I was born in Toronto but I’ve lived globally for most of my adulthood, settling in Sayulita three years ago. I am a professional wellness writer, with various healing modality certifications; however, my life’s passion and main focus is Conscious Connected Breathwork (or Breathwork for short).  Contrary to popular belief, Breathwork has nothing to do with learning how to breathe or inducing relaxation. The term Breathwork refers to a practice where you induce altered states of consciousness using just your breath, and these altered states are conducive to deep…

We are so happy to be donating this month to La Escuela Cooperativa, an incredible pre-school defying regular school traditions and standards in Sayulita! This forward thinking school follows a Montessori inspired approach, helping children become independent thinkers, feeding their creativity and natural intelligence. Instead of paying tuition fees, the parents are expected to participate as volunteers helping maintain the classrooms clean, taking care of the property and preparing food for the children. ​They attend monthly meetings and participate in special activities such as building an altar for the Day of the Dead on the town’s central plaza. Escuela Cooperativa…

For this edition, I had the honor of re-telling a story I have heard a thousand times before: me and my mothers arrival to Sayulita in 1999. I was only 6, she was 34, and we had previously been living on Margarita Island in Venezuela. With her boyfriend Tomás, we made our way to Mexico. She quickly earned the nickname “la Vikinga” as she was one of three foreigners named Anna back then, “la Brasileña” and “la Española” were the other two. “Well, me and Tomás had already driven around the whole country looking for the right place to settle…

Hi! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?Hi! My name is Debra, I run Crate Interiors. I was born in sunny South Africa and have proudly lived along the coast my entire life. My corporate career in fashion and interior design was the perfect preparation for entrepreneurship. I travelled globally overseeing design, product development and sourcing for multi-national brands.  This fueled my wanderlust and passion for cultural exploration. Today I channel that experience into tracking down fabulous finds for our clients and managing quite a complex supply chain to bring their ideas to life. How did you first…

Can you tell us a bit about yourself and how you started your business here? I love being a massage therapist! My practice has changed a lot since I started 14 years ago. For one, I’m fortunate to live here, in the magic of Sayulita! I think my migration is a pretty standard ‘burbs-to-beaches story. I started as a Registered Massage Therapist in Toronto, Ontario. There, I worked as an independent contractor, gradually moving into my home practice. Loving what I do meant I overworked myself. A little burnt out, I booked a vacation, tagging along with some Vancouver friends…

By Charlie Higgins By now you have probably seen posters around town or heard through the grapevine about Sand & Strings Music Festival, which will take place April 5th and 6th at Frente al Punto Beach Club. The first (of hopefully many) edition of this gathering will feature an incredible lineup of Americana, bluegrass, indie folk and blues artists from San Francisco to Mexico City, British Columbia to Nashville, and even Sayulita and the surrounding area. The list of artists is a “who’s who” of this vibrant music scene that is rooted in tradition but firmly situated in the present:…

We are so excited to be donating this month to ProSayulita and the SUP open. We spoke with one of the board members Janice Parker about her role with Pro Sayulita and all the good they do for this wonderful community. First off, can you introduce yourself and tell us what first brought you to Sayulita and what made you stay?We arrived in Sayulita in December 2010, just after the bridge was washed out by the storm. We were told by a friend to stop in and check it out. Our final destination was Los Ayala, looking for a place…
