Costa Verde's 10th annual fundraiser last night was a huge hit, and the Bollywood theme couldn't have been more fun! Between the delicious Indian food, the fabulous costumes, the impressive performances, and the awesome selection of silent and live auction items, this was definitely the perfect way to raise funds for the school's scholarship funds.
It was great seeing so many familiar faces and Sayulita residents, including visitors, come together to support such an important entity in Sayulita. If you missed the party this year, you can still contribute to the CVIS scholarship fund by making a donation through the CVIS website. Click here to make a donation.

A RELAXING TREAT IN SAYULITA:
A PRIVATE YOGA CLASS WITH EVA ESTLANDER YOGA
It was early Thursday evening and it had been another busy day, leaving me feeling exhausted and drained. As I took my place on the yoga mat at Don Pedro’sBrisa Mar Palapa in Sayulita, I could feel the day’s stress already start to melt away. A gentle, cool breeze, the scent of incense, and the sound of waves hitting the shore further enhanced my relaxation as I prepared for my first private yin yoga class with Eva Estlander Yoga, in which she is in high demand.
LIVE, LOVE & EAT IN SAYULITA: GRILLED CHAYOTE
& ROASTED CARROTS WITH CREAMY ASIAN SAUCE
Have you ever tried to reproduce a recipe in your Sayulita kitchen of something you loved so much that you just had to try to make it yourself? Well, I did this morning and am here to tell you that I failed. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to perfect the delicious breakfast recipe I promised you in my last column, so today I decided to tell you how to make Grilled Chayote and Roasted Carrots with Creamy Asian Sauce.
I'm Negrito, a true warrior and survivor! I was beaten as a pup because I was slow, and then because I was slow I got run over and was paralyzed. I was rescued and in only 4 months of intensive care, treatment, exercise, and LOVE, I am able to walk and even run. Do you have room in your home and heart for me?
