Awesome blog! Really helpful for those who do not have an idea of the Sayulita layout. I am a solo traveler from the Netherlands. I would like to stay in Sayulita but I am afraid I do not know anything about the vegan culture of the town. Is it a thing? What is the best vegan restaurant in Sayulita? I hope you can also write a Sayulita vegan guide. Thank you so much!

Many people don’t know this but Sayulita is a very health-conscious Mexican town. This might be unimaginable for you considering Mexico is a voracious meat-eating country but the lifestyle here is all about surf, yoga, and sustainability.
At Sayulita Insider, we get this question a lot: how to survive as a vegan/vegetarian in Sayulita? We also have a full guide about that but today, we want to tell you about our favorite breakfast place in Sayulita that serves healthy breakfast bowls, smoothies, and anything raw, really!
Organik Sayulita: where is it located?
Really, even without having read this post, once you are in Sayulita, it’s not that hard to spot. Conveniently located in between the busy area and the town entrance, Organik’s location is one of the best in Sayulita. The place is really small – there is about 5-6 tables max inside. There is a wooden-table outside that can seat 3 or 4 people but this is usually just for people doing takeaways. Organik has a to-go feature and their set-up makes it a good experience to just order a smoothie and go to the beach.
How sustainable is Organik Sayulita?
In terms of sustainability, Organik does not use anything that involves plastic. Actually, when you go there, it is highly encouraged to bring your own tumblers and thermos for takeaway. If it’s not part of your system to do this, Organik definitely teaches consumers how to behave. Their takeaway products are made from natural materials, like for example, the straws are from avocado scraps. This is a 100% plastic-free business!
Aside from food, they also sell products that would encourage you and somehow make you think about your plastic consumption. Upon ordering at the bar, you will see a variety of products like thermos, tumblers, soaps, bamboo cutlery set, and many more! In our opinion, displaying products like this can lead to enticing people to re-assess how much plastic we are consuming. Organik Sayulita is definitely one of the influencers who drive our community to be environmental-conscious.
Organik Sayulita Menu
On to our favorite part: the food! Mostly when we are hungover, we’ve frequented Organik as we can’t get enough of their healthy treats! Our favorite is their turmeric and ginger shots that will surely cure a hangover after a heavy night in Sayulita. What we like about Organik is that most of the items on their menu are raw.
As much as we’d like to surprise you, we also would like for you to know what’s in store for you before your visit to Organik Sayulita. Here’s the breakdown of all the yummy treats they serve:
There are lots of smoothie bars in Sayulita but Organik has a wider menu. If you ask us, our recommendation would be Pura Vida (pure life in English) which contains blueberry, banana, strawberry, raspberry, orange juice, almond milk, protein hemp, and acai. This yummy treat costs $4 USD only and comes in a generous serving. Other smoothies in their menu below:
- Bagus: mango, pineapple, spinach, orange juice, coconut, hemp protein , and, maca
- Sol de mayo: strawberry, pineapple, guava, passion fruit, hemp protein, and moringa
- Tudo bom: banana, apple, almond milk, spinach, spirulina, honey, and hemp protein
- Cali Cali: strawberry, banana, almond milk, homemade peanut cream, maca and amaranto
- Verde vida: pineapple, celery, spinach, kale, orange juice, spirulina, hemp protein, and wheatgrass
- No Bad Days: banana, almond milk, homemade peanut cream, hemp protein, cacao nibs, chia and maca
- Baja Sur: strawberry, mango, banana, orange juice, coconut, acai, and hemp protein
We’ve traveled to Brazil and we are very happy that Acai Bowls are also a thing in Mexico! Acai is a superfood and has lots of health benefits. Originally from the South American rainforests, acai is a lot like grapes. It is packed with vitamins and nutrients that are super beneficial to our bodies. If you take acai, it’s only 70 calories a cup!
In this menu, we totally debated what should be Sayulita Insider’s favorite (FYI, we tried them all) and our winner is Aloha Wey! You surely understand what Aloha means but, in Mexican slang, wey is a term of endearment for bro or dude. You should definitely use this word to sound like a local.
Aloha Wey contains acai (obviously), blueberry, raspberry, strawberry, almond milk, and homemade peanut cream. It is generously topped with fresh fruits like banana, goji berries, coconut, and honey pollen. It’s also sprinkled with granola! Aloha Wey will surely fill you up without having to worry about your calorie intake.
Aside from these two very interesting part of Organik Sayulita’s menu, they also serve poke bowls, juices, smoothies, shots, and coffee!
Organik Sayulita: Staff, customer service, and our personal experience
Since we live in Sayulita, the staff at Organik already knows us and they are the best! They always have a smile on their faces whenever we approach the counter. They always chat with the customers and they speak English! A lot of foreigners worry about their Spanish language skills whenever they visit Mexico but we assure you that Organik Sayulita’s staff are pretty accommodating and can speak decent English.
Whenever we review restaurants in Sayulita, we make sure that we don’t only talk about the good things. We also need to be honest about what needs to be improved based on our experience. We are regulars at Organi-k but since the place is small, there is a lot of wait time involved particularly during peak hours (breakfast, brunch). This is a good indicator of a successful business but if you are in a hurry (like us), there is not a lot of space to wait when they are busy.
We are super glad that Organik Sayulita is thriving as a business and we love the owner, Majo. She is sweet, super-intelligent, and is a big supporter of sustainable living. We will make an interview with her soon so keep it here! Overall, Organik is Sayulita Insider approved and you should make them as part of your breakfast routines whenever you are in Sayulita.
