We are back at La Cruz and ready for some exploring. Surfer town, beach town both describe Sayulita, Mexico. We threw some clothes in a backpack, hopped in a taxi and set off to have some fun hoping to find a hotel with a vacancy so we could enjoy as much food and nightlife as possible. We were dropped off right at the town plaza in the middle of all the vendors and crafts people. A totally different atmosphere than quiet La Cruz. We had read about a funky hotel on the internet and lucky for us they had a vacancy. We dropped off our backpack and climbed the rock stairs to the roof deck where a complimentary bottle of tequila and some shot glasses were waiting. The USA does wine and the caribbean does rum but here in Mexico, complimentary tequila. We managed to make a very small dent in the bottle while taking in the view then headed out to explore.

With no breakfast the first order of business was street tacos and a few Cerveza’s. The fish, chicken and beef were cooked on a wood grill to perfection. We had at least 8 condiments delivered to our table. The grilled onions with chopped up habinero peppers was not for the faint of heart LOL. All fed we were ready for beach time and a siesta!

Many dinner places to choose from but first on the list was a tequila tasting for happy hour. I think we split 4 or 5 shots all for less than $15.00 US. Never could have done that many on my own and still make it to dinner.

We chose a dinner place that turned out to be just ok which served the worse Margarita we have ever tasted. Seriously, straight lime juice. Next time we will stick to street food like we had for lunch. Walking around later we could see those were the places that were packed. The shops were opened late so we got to see some different Christmas decorations. Really the first stores we’ve been in since leaving San Diego. A cup of Joe in the morning and we were back in a taxi heading to our home. Definitely on our list of places to take Austin while he is here for Christmas.
