Yes, have heard the same. Due to the heavy rains, Sayulita is bellow the water at the moment as well as the two little bridges, so supposedly there is not even access to the center! Hope it will not last too long because it is really a great place to visit.

Bridges, car and pedestrian, are washed away. There is much damage but this community has a spirit of "coming back". Many folks lost their homes and all their belongings. It's serious.

There is a link here to make donations to a fund which will help local families.

For those folks interested, follow the general forum links on Sayulitalife.com

While some homeowners have had devastating losses, primarily those in the low-lying neighborhood along the river, the majority of property owners are reporting little or no damage. The government has already promised to replace our bridge in the town center prior to the start of the tourist seasoh. We are still able to use the bridge for foot traffic and for vehicle traffic we detour over to the Punta de Mita road to cross the river. Clean up is already in progress and we´ll be back better than ever, with a new bridge, for the tourist season.

Flood Damage Repairs HWY 200 - Video

Update on the repairs along HWY 200 in the Banderas Bay Region. THis is the road that connects Puerto Vallarta to Sayulita, Watch the video here:

pvpulse.com/en/puerto-vallarta-news/flood-da…

It is the only "highway" in western Mexico. With two lanes and no shoulder, Highway 200 connects Puerto Vallarta to the rest of the republic. The flood damage caused by two storms on September 4 and 6, 2010, which dumped almost 14 inches of rain, was devastating. Many small towns were cut off from the highway between Bucerias and Sayulita, because the bridges were washed out. Construction crews will be repairing these and cleaning up the many landslides. There are several areas where traffic is reduced to one lane.

Thank you for your information. I have plans to stay at a place called casa de la hijas starting the first day of November. Do you think Sayulita will be mostly recovered?

PVPulse is out of date info, we traveled the highway between Sayulita and Vallarta on the 15th and both lanes of travel were open with the exception of the bridge just north of the airport where four lanes of traffic have to reduce down to two. The road crews have done an excellent job of repairing the highway, but of course it is a priority. Sayulita also, has had a swift and impressive rebound. We are already ¨mostly recovered¨and other than our bridge construction I don´t expect you to see much sign of the flash floods. The Sayulita spirit is alive and thriving, it´s a great time to visit.

I've seen pictures of the beach in front of Don Pedros and it looks like it's mostly gone. Mostly rocks left and a new river channel. Are there any plans to restore the beach?
