It’s now time for the fashion bloggers Camille DG and Gracie Carroll to hit the beach! Sayulita, in Riviera Nayarit, is one of Mexico’s most famous surf spots. The girls start off their day at the beach with an initiation to Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP). Their instructor is an ex-pro surfer who runs a surfing school and shop called Lunazul. The fashionistas head there as well as to its sister store in the heart of Sayulita, that specializes in selling surf fashion and beachwear for women. The last stop of the day is a locally owned and operated shop called Revolucion del Sueño. It offers colorful Mexican designs with a twist. It’s the perfect place to pick up Mexican souvenirs.

Revolución del Sueño
If you happen to be in Sayulita and the weather doesn’t allow you to surf or enjoy the beach, head over to Revolución del Sueño. If this boutique had to be described in one word, it would be “colourful”! It’s a real treasure chest filled with multi-coloured skulls, unusual decorative objects and unique, funky accessories. A must if you’re looking for not-so-typical souvenirs!
