A bi-monthly source of positive energy and information for the village of Sayulita, Mexico
Friday, May 22nd, 2015
From the Editor's Desk:

Happy Friday!

After a week of excitement, Sayulita has been pretty quiet following the completion of the 2015 ISA World SUP and Paddleboard Championship.

A lot of people who live here half the year have already left for the season, while more will leave this month and next. 

The days are getting hotter and more humid, and the sunsets have been beautiful. A lot of us are looking forward to the rain that should be coming in the next month or so.  

Thank you for reading this edition of El Sayulero,

Stacey Elkins

Pet of the Week

Hi there. My name is Soleil. I belonged to a woman who no longer wants me because she is sick and has personal problems. I'm a little shy, so will need some TLC until I can fully relax in human care. I have a slight underbite which makes me extra special cute, so they say... ;) I'm scruffy and a so called "non allergic" dog. I'm sure someone is looking for a dog like me! Make yourself seen!
