In this third episode, fashion bloggers Camille DG and Gracie Carroll set out to explore Sayulita’s bohemian lifestyle. They start their day at La Esperanza for a healthy breakfast and some organic juices. Next, they visit the legendary boutique, Pachamama, owned by an icon in the bohemian community. For their last spot in beautiful Sayulita, the bloggers take us to Evoke the Spirit, a small boutique that creates modern and bohemian designs with traditional Mexican handcrafts. From there, Camille and Gracie head back to the heart of Puerto Vallarta to hunt down the perfect boho-Mexican items at the Isla Cuale flea market, before their trip comes to an end… just in time to grab their bags and fly back to Canada.
Watch the last episode of this series to discover the Bohemian Lifestyle of Mexico:
Camille and Gracie begin their second day in Sayulita at La Esperanza, an outdoor café. This trendy and laid-back little restaurant serves delicious, healthy breakfasts and lunches daily, made mostly with organic ingredients that are carefully selected and prepared with love. You’ll also find juices so refreshing and delicious they can cure a hangover. Although the menu is primarily vegetarian, certain dishes will surely satisfy the carnivore in you.

Gallery-boutique Pachamama showcases a very liberal bohemian lifestyle that contrasts with that of developed countries. Owner Nathalie Mignot of French origin displays her photos as well as her jewellery, clothing and works of art that she designs and then produces locally. Through her work, this avid traveller expresses her vision of the world; a world that favours respect for the environment, living with family and homeschooling. It’s the ideal place to buy superb tunics and chic, bohemian handmade dresses reminiscent of Sayulita.

Evoke the spirit
Camille and Gracie then stop at studio-boutique Evoke the Spirit, which hires local artisans to create jewellery and contemporary decor inspired by traditional Mexican art. Our bloggers are dazzled by their finds, especially the cow skulls adorned with woven patterns and beautiful bright colours. Original artwork that will spice up your home!

Isla Cuale flea market
Back in Puerto Vallarta, Camille and Gracie have the pleasure of discovering a flea market on the city’s small island of Isla Cuale. This bohemian-style market abounds with colourful Mexican handicrafts. Each day, different artisans come to sell an eclectic collection of handcrafted items, from traditional pottery to stylish ponchos and typical Mexican wrestling masks.
