Summer may be the low season in Mexico when fewer tourists visit, but Sayulita still has lots going on. In many small towns, restaurants begin to close in June when business slows and don't reopen until November when high season begins.
In Sayulita, we are grateful that most of our favorite restaurants are still open. The June heat means it's too hot for me to cook. It's easier and more fun to walk downtown for dinner, for good people watching, and to see what kind of street entertainers are performing that day. Plus, I don't have to wash the dishes!
Yeikame is more than a taco stand, with excellent traditional Mexican food and wonderful service! This is one of our favorite places for lunch. We are hooked on their large, cheesy chicken quesadillas made with blue corn tortillas (we order them with less salt). They have very good aguas frescas, a light, refreshing drink made with fruit juice, fresh herbs, and then served over ice. Currently in the top 5 of 109 restaurants on tripadvisor. At Calle Jose Mariscal # 10, downtown Sayulita.
Tierra Viva is only a ten-minute walk from our casita, and the food is amazingly good, so it has become our second home. We eat breakfast or brunch there at least once a week, usually the Eggs Benedict with ham or bacon and avocado--yum! Dinner once a week is often the Tierra Viva Shrimp--the freshest grilled shrimp in town, we think, served over a bed of vegetables sautéed in soy sauce and other delicious ingredients.
