Heading to Sayulita

I'm off next week to the beach...to a place called Sayulita which is north of Puerto Vallarta. It was not in my "long range" plans to do this trip - it just came up. I've been so focused on the trip the end of May to Chiapas that I really, really hesitated to make this journey. BUT let me tell you why I'm going............. The "gypsy" kids are getting ready to leave the end of May for their "GREAT" adventure and they are going to Sayulita. So, it seems that if I want to spend time with them and Matilda I better "get with the plan" and head over to the beach for a week..........it WILL be fun! Lisa's parents will be going too and other friends - so it will NOT be like my usual quiet, tranquil, reading books on the beach trip............
I MUST confess this is what I HOPE Sayulita is like..........empty beaches, great palapas for seafood............I KNOW there won't be a thatched roof cottage to stay in...........but clear skies, good water and seafood will suffice.

I also must confess, these photos are of a wonderful area called Yelapa just south of Puerto Vallarta that you can only get to by panga or the "barf boat". I used to go stay there every chance I got...........haven't been there in ten years - wonder if it is still the same. The "pie lady" and the coconuts falling on the roof in the morning as the kids climbed up the trees for the nuts for the pie lady! Paradise.

So, I'll let you know what I find when I get to Sayulita...........hopefully another paradise!

Ooh, best of luck in Sayulita. We were there last summer (June) drove in, drove around, tried to find a decent hotel, drove out. Won't ever go back. Loved Yelapa though! I could (almost!) live there. Search Yelapa on my blog to see pictures taken last summer.

(I agree with word verification getting crazier and crazier!)

I have looked at Sayulita as a possible hiome, but I appear to be about 10 years too late for what I need. I wish you well in finding a week of joy.

Thanks Wayne and Steve - Well, I've had no trouble finding a place to stay (almost all the rentals are in homes) by going to www.sayulitalife.com I found a house on the beach that is one bedroom for $65 a night.....with airconditioning (which I hope not to use) cause I LOVE the sound of the waves.....I like "funky" places that are beautiful, ha. I'll keep you posted. I'm also going to check out Rincon de Guayabitos, lots of friends stay there every year.......
