The history of Sayulita is intimately linked with the Mexican Revolution and it is our special day, so come out and enjoy the best town parade on November 20, Revolution Day! Ejidos are land grants that the government gave to the workers to sow, and constituted the family estate.  The Revolution was the trigger for the redistribution of all the farm land. Emiliano Zapata and his slogan "Tierra y Libertad" (Land and Freedom) quickly became the slogan of the workers of the land, as for many years his attempts at obtaining land for the workers had been thwarted.

Sayulita Junior High School has been converted in the last three weeks into the new Tele Prepa of Sayulita. This new school is an option primarily for those students who can not afford the costs of going to a school in other villages such as La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, La Peñita or Puerto Vallarta.  The new school is also for people who can't be admitted to regular institutions because of their age and for workers who dropped out of school early to join the labor force.
