sayulita-film-festivalThe year 2014 for Riviera Nayarit is a year with new challenges, the town of Sayulita has its own, an example is the 1st Sayulita 2014 Festival: A sample of film, food, tequila, music, surf and a great heart.

From January 16th to 19th, the “hippie chic” town gets into a party mood to exhibit the places, sounds, flavors and broad range of tastes that it can offer its visitors.

“It is a new project that came out of the heart of the town. We chose a time in the calendar in which we could attract more people, tourism and income for the town", expressed Gabriel Villarrubia, one of the directors of the Festival.

There will be a transmission of films of culture, action, sports, mountain climbing, surf, music and family movies. The idea is that the people have the opportunity to see films in many places of the town.

“The greatest and most cool theater is in the Sayulita beach, every night we will have a screen of a size that you can't even imagine, for some 500 or 600 people”, said Villarrubia.

The tequila and the food have a special place in this festival, for which there will be tastings in different places. For the Mexicans the tequila and the food is something that mixes well, but not so for foreign tourists, who need to be taught that other phase of the Mexican beverage par excellence.

“On Friday nights there are events in five different restaurants, we are doing tastings. We will have a special menu that night”, he said.

On Saturday there is a surf tournament as part of the festival, to which any person can come in to enjoy, as it is not professional event, but a recreational activity to give the town its place in what distinguishes it in the world.

On that night there will be an “aftertasting”, an intimate moment with tequila, music, folkloric dances and mariachi to close with a finishing touch.

The Office of Visitors and Conventions of Riviera Nayarit, supports this event and extends the invitation so that the Sayulita Festival achieves the greatness that the town deserves.

“We appreciate all of the support and the help that they are giving us, we are a small group, we make what is possible but with a lot of heart. The support that we receive is like a gift from friends, we respect that a lot", thanked Gabriel Villarrubia

“What Sayulita offers is a heart that is different from other places around here, it is an international destination, people from all over the world live here with their families. It is a bohemian destination with a family environment”, he finalized.
