It pains me to write this post, because we found Sayulita to be a LOVELY town in many ways... but we'd read some of the earlier posts about illness with concern and we've just returned from a wedding where an astounding amount of people got sick. I believe there were close to 60 people in this particular group and it seems as though at least three quarters (if not more) fell ill with violent stomach issues. It seemed to hit most people within 2-3 days after their arrival and last for a good 24hours. Everyone arrived on different days, stayed in different locations, ate at different places... the only thing we all had in common was being in Sayulita! I don't know what is happening - if it is indeed infrastructure issues or wastewater treatment issues or what, but we certainly won't come back until things get better.
Which is sad, because the town was fun and the people were helpful and fantastic, food was terrific - we loved it! But we started calling it the Walking Dead vacation because our friends were dropping like flies and we spent our whole trip waiting for the other shoe to drop, so to speak, and come down with violent illness! We didn't get as ill as the others, and I have no idea why we were spared - probiotics may have helped. At any rate, I'm a longtime forum member and have traveled to lots of places in the world, but have never seen or heard of something as crazy as this. I really do hope this lovely town is able to figure out their issues.
