This past month, we were fortunate enough to visit a magical town in Mexico called, Sayulita.

We went there to celebrate my husband’s birthday. It was a beach surfer town and thanks to Airbnb, we stayed in a beautiful home near the beach! The home was rustic and it felt like a boutique hotel. Private patio with a pool, plenty of space for the whole family, large living room, dinning room, kitchen and 4 bedrooms with a master suite (we got the suite). It was a family retreat party of nine.

We drove to Nayarit, Sayulita from Zacatecas and though it was a bumpy and windy road, the scenery was impressive. We were in the middle of the jungle and couldn’t believe in awe that we were there! Sayulita truly is a magical town. Although I was surprised to find that EVERYONE there spoke English. I mean walking on the street all you hear is English-speaking people that were once tourists and decided to move to Sayulita because it is that magical. The beach is peaceful and and beautiful.

The gastronomy there is amazing, full of highly rated Yelp reviewed restaurants. Live music from around the world on every corner. A vibrant nightlife in the town’s center and donkey rides my daughter loved! We ate and ate and had such a peaceful time in Sayulita, I wouldn’t mind retiring there, now.

One of the nights we celebrated my husband’s birthday, though the whole trip I call it his birthday trip to the beach. We were there a few nights so we found our favorite Italian spot with live entertainment. They sang a special song to him and my brother brought him a personalized tart from the local French Bakery (authentic). We sang, he blew the candles and we watched street performers while we ate our delicious ice cream.

We walked to the Downtown and watched more street performers, live music in every venue and took in all the art and beauty of this Magical little surfer town. We were in love. Just being there made you forget about everything else. If you are ever thinking about where to visit next, go to this hidden gem in Nayarit, Mexico, Sayulita, Pueblo Mágico.

El mes pasado, tuvimos la suerte de visitar un pueblo mágico en México llamado Sayulita. Fuimos allí para celebrar el cumpleaños de mi esposo. Era un pueblo de surfistas en la playa y gracias a Airbnb, ¡nos quedamos en una hermosa casa cerca de la playa! La casa era rústica y se sentía como un hotel boutique. Patio privado con piscina, mucho espacio para toda la familia, gran sala, comedor, cocina y 4 dormitorios con una suite principal (nos toco a nosotros). Fue una fiesta de retiro familiar de nueve. Condujimos a Nayarit, Sayulita desde Zacatecas y, aunque era un camino lleno de baches y curvas, el paisaje era impresionante. ¡Estábamos en medio de la jungla y no podíamos creer que estuviéramos allí! Sayulita es verdaderamente un pueblo mágico. Aunque me sorprendió descubrir que TODOS allí hablaban inglés. Me refiero a caminar por la calle y que todo lo que escuchas son personas de habla inglesa que alguna vez fueron turistas y decidieron mudarse a Sayulita porque es mágico. La playa es tranquila y hermosa. La gastronomía allí es increíble, llena de restaurantes altamente calificados revisados por Yelp. Música en vivo de todo el mundo en cada esquina. ¡Una vibrante vida nocturna en el centro de la ciudad y paseos en burro que mi hija disfrutó! Comimos y comimos y pasamos unos días tan tranquilos en Sayulita, que no me importaría retirarme allí, ahora.

Una de las noches que celebramos el cumpleaños de mi esposo, aunque todo el viaje lo llamé su viaje de cumpleaños en la playa. Estuvimos allí varias noches, así que encontramos nuestro lugar italiano favorito con entretenimiento en vivo. Le cantaron una canción especial y mi hermano le trajo una tarta personalizada de la panadería francesa local (auténtica). Cantamos, sopló las velas y vimos artistas callejeros mientras comíamos nuestro delicioso helado. Caminamos hacia el centro y vimos más artistas callejeros, música en vivo en cada lugar y disfrutamos de todo el arte y la belleza de esta pequeña y mágica ciudad de surfistas. Estábamos enamorados. Solo estar allí te hizo olvidar todo lo demás. Si alguna vez está pensando dónde visitar, vaya a esta joya escondida en Nayarit, México, Sayulita, Pueblo Mágico.

LA Mami,
