Sayulita once again takes center stage as the capital of cinema, music, gastronomy, family and friends with the celebrated 6th Annual Sayulita Festival that runs until February 3rd February 2019. Located 30 minutes from Puerto Vallarta’s airport, Sayulita has become the darling of the bohemian jet set and surf aficionados as evidenced by the sea side resorts increasing culture and arts scene and a booking real estate market.
The Sayulita Festival is a non-profit event focused on raising awareness and funds for “El Centro”, a creative space for the local community, which special focus on providing nurturing educational activities for children.
Organizers are promising a full calendar of activities and fun during this year’s festival including film screenings, wine, mezcal and tequila tastings, art exhibits as well as surf and stand up paddle events. Art exhibitions, yoga sessions and special gastronomic promotions in Sayulita’s beach side restaurant round out the fetsivities.
