Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico

In the late 1960s, in search of the perfect waves and along with the new construction of Highway 200, surfers migrated north of Puerto Vallarta and came across a special little town called Sayulita. With perfect wave conditions for the beginner or expert, surfers have been returning now for decades. Although not for everyone ( a good thing in my opinion ), Sayulita is an off-the-beaten path surfers paradise.

One year ago, I traveled to this beautiful little town and immediately feel in love. It happens often, to many.

Since then, all I could think of was Sayulita; the people, the surfing, the mouth watering food, sunsets, tequila, sand, warmth, and did I mention mouth watering food? It wasn't a matter IF I would be back, just WHEN. Glad to be here!

This year, I've decided to log my travels and experiences in this little paradise. Mainly for myself to look back on in years to come and in addition as a resource for anyone who is planning to visit. Hopefully it will prove insightful, possibly a little humorous.

All work and no play .....

Can we please define a working vacation?

1- Get your work done and then vacation?

2- Get some work done and some vacation?

3- No work, all vacation?

Ok, I invite more input and would gladly love to post other options as I'm sure there are many variations.

For me? Because of deadlines, yesterday and today happened to be  work and no play my first two days in Sayulita. However, the view outside my "office" is of the ocean and I'm just wondering how many days I can subject myself to this madness (insert small smirk here). It's become part torture with the waves braking in my view and part gratitude knowing I'll soon be done, on a board, getting wet.

I would really love to hear from you!
