Sayulita wedding/getaway: Part UNO!

by Shelly

We just got back from our six day getaway to Sayulita, Mexico this past Tuesday night.   Of course I spent the remainer of the week trying to play catchup and spend time with my little one..who I missed TERRIBLY!   (even though the break and one on one time with the hubs was very needed!)

Sayulita is a quirky little surfer town 45 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta.  We went not only for the vacation time, but to attend a wedding of one of my hubby’s oldest friends.  We had both been to Baja, Mexico before and to be honest we were sort of over Mexico for good.  Sayulita (in main land Mexico) changed our mind completely!  The people, the food, the beach, the water, our casa, the village…it was all charming and non touristy.  Yes, it is Mexico…so there is an over abundance of dog and horse poop, uneven dirt streets, and the smell of urine.  But you sort of know what you’re getting when you go, so you don’t dwell on it…at least we didn’t.

The views of Sayulita are stunning.  Just what you want to gaze at while sipping a fresh margarita and munching on ceviche and chips!

Horseback riding on the beach always sounds romantic and fun, until you want to HANG OUT on the beach. It’s a little difficult to find a nice…unpooped on area…to place your towel!  Makes for a great pic though!

Random, but lovely…images of Sayulita…..

{the fruits and veggies were to DIE for!}

{we’re not sure how..but this is the place all the single boys stayed. the couples (who we stayed with) all vowed to rent this place next time we go!}

Hope you enjoyed sneaking a peek into our much needed getaway. I’ll post more pics of our trip tomorrow! I’m missing Mexico already!

**Special thanks to Jon Free for being the vacation photographer and letting me use the photos!**
