  2. Hola, My family is looking for a family friendly vacation rental for one month in the summer of 2018. We will have a 1 and a half year old when we are in Sayulita and looking for a safe place to rent for us and our daughter. Must have AC. Thanks for any insight!
  3. Arath is a good plumber (521-322-107-0634). He does water pressure systems and puts guarantees on his work, But like mentioned above if it is a non-pressure system and you are adding pressure you might have to upgrade most of the system. Good Luck!
  4. Hola, Anyone have any information on Día de la Independencia activities in Sayulita tomorrow - Saturday, September 15, 2017? I heard there might be a parade? If this is the case, where does it start / finish and its route? Gracias!

  7. Hi Iris, We had solar installed this past summer by ESun-they were great and we are so excited to not only be more kind to the environment, but to say goodbye to skyrocketing CFE bills. The guy we dealt with was Cody(ventaspv@esunenergy.com), he walked me through everything and the work was done on time, and well! Good luck!
  8. Does anyone have a good person or company to build a palapa in Sayulita? Thanks in advance for any info!
  9. Hola Señorita y hola to all Sayulita forum long time I did not post anything down here, I moved to Sayulita 10 years ago, from Sonora, right now I am exploring places like Arizona, or further, maybe, so your insight will be appreciated. I do agree with the rest of the forum speakers, but, I appreciate your will to visit Mexico and stay for a while participating with your knowledge and your activities with a new community. Sayulita indeed has many yoga teachers, and servers, (I was one). But do not let that discourage you, You can start a new business (fill up some forms, altought you will need to pay taxes etc...) i or you can invest in our country, (a fundraiser for local kids who want to learn Yoga but can not afford it?) (or even an english teacher -just english policy/ for kids and adults with limited resources -(maybe house cleaners/construction people) ?but with their hearts open to learn).You can do fundme or even attempt to do it by your own, this will provide a better future and maybe a better income to us, Mexicans. (Babysitting and Guestrelatios, where also my jobs). But the important thing: How you will sustain your self? with out affecting the established community in Sayulita? With out affecting Mexicans? Well IMOHO You can start a business in the states and bring it to Mexico? etsy, ebay, dawanda? Etc you can visit all those wonderful sale stores Nordstrom rack? Guess Outlets?and bring quality pieces you can sell online, even in mercado libre? (This was my plan when I studied in Tucson some courses). And well living there, after many jobs, I ended up with a lovely Mexican business, (because I am Mexican of course) and did it all online, never sold a piece in Sayulita, or around, and well, I am more than glad to help you out if you decide to help out the Indigenous community in our country with bunchs of ideas for new lines if you indeed want to sell "offline" but if you are in the finance world you know, online businesses are great, and you can help in the process and even start a trend! I would like to read and know more about Arizona, as I like the desert. I am just learning about parks, around here, patagonia, those water falls with turquoise water. And maybe I can not live there, as in work there, as my job is in Mexico, but it is great to visit and study about economics or arts, and even take Yoga classes! That is not so popular here in Some parts of Mexico. anyhow, hope you have an amazing time, and there are a bunch of options to do amazing stuff down there! You will love the food! I mean chilly willis will stay with me for-ever, fresh catch by husband cooked by wife and her comadre, la michoacana pasiflora ice pops, always delicious. Coconuts and fruta by the beach with a lovely familia. down here, well caldos such as gallina pinta is so popular, meat is good, and Zulas is always there, on the road,( first time visit at age 0 and so on, their soup tastes amazingly good always). warm regards KariJ! bienvenida a Sayulita, the land of dreams Hola Señorita y hola to all Sayulita forum long time I did not post anything down here, I moved to Sayulita 10 years ago, from Sonora, right now I am exploring places like Arizona, or further, maybe, so your insight will be appreciated.

  10. Hey Checo Thanks so much. I was actually able to send it down by DHL and it arrived on Monday. Stormsam
  11. What do you need? I'll be coming down next weekend.
  12. Sayulita WiFi is just getting into this business too. They have a plan where you can contract with them to maintain the panels. www.sayulitawifi.com
  13. Contact Frank O'Grady in La Cruz. He does solar installation. Find him on Facebook
  14. Hola Amigos, I am a vacation rental owner and my CFE is increasing considerably. I am hesitant to install anything "high tech" and try to keep things as simple as possible but Sayulita would be ideal for clean power from the sun. Who has experience with generating solar energy? My pool is heated by the sun and is not part on my electrical grid. I am interested in solar energy to replace or supplement the electricity usage of AC and lights. Are the panels resistant to our hot and humid environment (and the occasional iguana on the roof), what about maintenance (are technicians available?), and the repairs (parts are available)? Muchas gracias!
  15. Hi Is there anyone heading down from Canada or US over the next few weeks that could take a very small item with them? Stormsam
  16. I don't have a pressurized system, but I have many friends who do. You won't have a problem finding the equipment or an installer. But if you buy a home which doesn't have proper plumbing to handle the pressure, you will have a problem and will have to dig into walls and floors to re-plumb. And no, all flat roofs don't leak. Mine doesn't.
  17. Hola Chrystal, It's true, this past season we saw an estimated 21k national visitor to Sayulita however many "issues" that American and Canadian tourists experienced during the high season (holiday season) this year was not a huge problem due to the fact that the town came together (both expats and nationals) to keep the town clean and safe. For example, there were many port-o-porties set up around the town to ensure the sewer systems wouldn't be over it's capacity. There were 3 main beach clean ups daily to ensure the town and beaches were clean of all trash. And trash bags were handed to visitors to encourage them to clean up their trash. To see an extensive list of the efforts made from Semana Santa in 2017, you can view here: https://www.sayulitalife.com/news/detail/651 Semana Santa for 2018 starts on the 25th of March and Ends on the 1st of April. You will see visitors coming a week before and leaving about 3-5 days after. The ocean water is not affected by Semana Santa. If anything, Semana Santa was cleaner than it was in Sayulita over the holiday season. The riverbed by the ocean is smelly but that is due to an entirely different subject of the water plant that has plans to be fixed once enough funds are raised. You can read about the town infastructure project here: https://www.sayulitalife.com/news/detail/612
  18. You need to test the system to handle 60 psi. Many might not and pressure does not mean volume. Most places have 1/2" plumbing with corrosion to further reduce volume. All flat roof houses leak. Most electrical is ample for simple needs. Sewer plumbing usually has no traps so a lot of odor and so on and so on.
  19. We plan on being owners in Sayulita in the very near future and from what I have seen, most homes do not have Water Filtration and rely on gravity fed systems. Does anyone know if there is a local plumber or water contractor that specializes in something like this? Ideally, I would be looking to pressurize the system to 60-70psi and add a filtration system to it to make the water drinkable from the tap. Has anyone done this and if so, what are you experiences?
  20. Hi, I'm looking to get married in beautiful Sayulita April of 2018. We were going to book our wedding date for April 12, 2018. I've heard a lot about Samana Santa and everyone advised not to come during that time. Does it end on April 1? If so when does it start to go back to normal? Our guest will be staying from April 7-14 2018. Also how is the water after it, beaches and the sewer system(does it smell)? Some people warned me that this beautiful town is not set up for the 20,000 visitors that come to it during samana santa so the town gets trashed and the sewage system is not set up for that many visitors, so the ocean gets polluted. I'm just afraid of the town not being the same as I saw it in May. Thanks so much in advance!

  22. I would suggest becoming familiar with the work and labor laws here in Mexico. Since you are not fluent in Spanish, getting you temporary or permanent resident card and permission to work will require you to hire a lawyer for translation purposes and to walk you through the necessary steps for obtaining your residency and becoming eligible to legally work in Mexico. All paper work will be in Spanish. You must also check online with what the requirements are for qualifying for your residency as it seems to constantly change. On SayulitaLife.com there is a section of some highly qualifies legal services that can help you with any questions you may have and walk you through the process of becoming legal to work and live here in Mexico. https://www.sayulitalife.com/sayulita-legal
  23. I agree ? percent!
  24. Well, if you are seriously planning to move here within the next year, I strongly suggest that you sign up for some beginning Spanish courses now where you live, or online, or using language learning tapes, rather than to start trying to learn when you get here. You will find your experience much fuller if you actually can understand at least some of what is being said around you. Many people who come to Mexico on vacation assume that most of the local Mexicans speak English, simply because the ones who work in the businesses which cater to tourists do. I can assure you that the majority of Mexicans, even in a tourist town, do not speak English, anymore than the average American is bilingual.
