Sayulita did it again- the year-long preparations for Dia de Los Muertos paid off! The town held a three day celebration filled with color, life and soulful tradition. As I walked through the town and into the plaza, I could feel the heartbeat of Sayulita when everyone came together. The altars this year were beyond beautiful and heartfelt. A particular altar stood out to me, the person’s picture having been edited to show her in the clouds with wings. Another altar had beer, baseball mitts, a baseball bat and a Los Jaibos (our local Sayulita team) baseball jersey.  It made…

By Charlie Higgins Over the past three years, Frente al Punto Beach Club has become a favorite spot among expats, locals and visitors to hear live music in Sayulita. This is particularly true on Sunday evenings, when my group, Charlie Higgins & Sunset Station, draws a regular crowd of music-lovers each week with our evolving blend of Americana, soul and indie folk. I sincerely look forward to watching our audience—comprised of happy-go-lucky kids, laid back baby boomers, surprised tourists, scruffy surfers and everyone in between—listen attentively to our original songs, belt out the lyrics to their favorite covers and dance…

It tells the tale of a Russian male humpback whale thatwe had seen here in February 2018 right in front of Monkey Mountain, fighting with othermales for access to a female from Alaska. How do we know where these whales are from andeven their sex? The underside of their tail flukes are unique, and you can identify individuals bytaking good quality photos of the…
