April 13, 2010. Lo de Marcos to Sayulita,
This will be our final stop before Puerto Vallarta. The drive along the coastal route was pretty. Sayulita is a small town but because of it's proximity to Puerto Vallarta, about 27 miles north, it is becoming more popular as a tourist destination. So, it has the services that tourists demand - good restaurants, a sports bar, where we were able to watch the NHL Playoffs, spa places offering everything from manis and pedis to massages and facials and a number of small grocery stores. The trailer park and bungalows are definitely the largest and commercial we have stayed at. The beach stretches along the rear of the property and there is a restaurant on the beach. The surfing here is excellent and Tom can't wait to try out the waves. Whilst I settled in, Tom took a quick walk to town to get beer and shrimp for dinner. We had a margarita at the restaurant and watched the sunset. I haven't felt like such a tourist in a while. The shrimp were excellent on the grill.
