We all know that staying hydrated is crucial when traveling to hotter, more tropical climates, such as Sayulita. Many visitors to Sayulita are surprised with the high percentage of humidity and heat they experience. Some travelers find themselves unprepared and lack of hydration can be detrimental to your vacation. Below are some tips to keep yourself hydrated, happy, and ready to enjoy your vacation to the fullest!
Before Your Trip
Planning ahead always saves you money in the long run. Sayulita is lined with farmacia’s (local pharmacies) all around town, but what some may not realize, is that the mark up is generously larger than buying basic products anywhere else. After a few days at the beach, you may realize you’re spending quite a bit of your pesos for gatorade or any other electrolyte drinks. Our biggest suggestion is doing your research ahead of time and ordering some type of electrolytes to bring with you on your trip. One of our favorite travel sized options are portable electrolytes. You can fit this in your pocket (it’s seriously the same size as eye drops) and take anywhere with you. Another suggestion we encourage everyone to do is bring your own portable water bottle. This helps keep Sayulita green by eliminating excessive plastic bottles and waste.
During Your Stay
We’re all about keeping it local! Throughout the town of Sayulita you will find many local vendors with a cart saying, “Cocos Frios” which translates to, “cold coconuts”. Natural coconut water is one of the most beneficial sources of electrolytes and keeps you cool and hydrated. Local Tip – Bring your empty water bottle with you and ask your local vendor to fill it with fresh coconut water. This is a fantastic way to take your fresh coconut water with you and explore Sayulita. In order to protect the ocean and marine life in Sayulita, please consider not using straws for your drinks. ChocoBanana is a local restaurant that has gone straw free and with everyones help, others will follow! Next time you’re at a restaurant or bar, use the phrase, “No popote por favor”, which means, “No straw, please”.
