Made up of brothers Zach and Ben Yudin, Cayucas, the Los Angeles duo, shared the video for their single “Sayulita”, which is directed by Gabriela Sibilska.

Known for their sunny, melodic surf rock and buoyant, rhythmic jams, the band shared the singles “Sayulita” and “Topo Rides the Wave” earlier this year, following 2020’s acclaimed album Blue Summer (Park the Van).

A reference to the quaint town of Riviera Nayarit, this song features little snippets of Spanish lyrics. Much like this micro-destination, the song has an enchanting, dreamy sound.

“Sayulita was a demo that we wrote between 2016 and 2017. Lyrically, I like to create a sort of mythical place in my mind that encompasses the mood. The song has a sort of Eagle’s song Hotel California quality to it, but it’s really about the idea of going somewhere in your mind. Even if you’re not actually there, it takes you away for a while,” said Zach.

“The song itself is really descriptive in its lyrics and so vibey—it felt almost like illustrating a book. I knew from the beginning that I wanted to create a dreamy, cozy universe for the viewer to be immersed in. I had the idea to create a little village with fun characters, and revisit the same places within it during the day—to make the viewer feel almost at home, at the same time emphasizing just how relaxed and slow-paced the life of Sayulita is,” said Sibilska.

“We started to advertise in Vallarta Lifestyles because since its beginnings and to date it keeps using modern technological equipment to produce it and it is possible to notice that in the quality of the magazine, which offers interesting topics about the life of our destination through its articles and interviews to well known personalities. Actually, I keep a collection in my personal library.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles is really well positioned. We are aware of that because we have seen people who arrive to our jewelry with the issue or the advertising in hand asking about the product that is featured there. This dynamic is really interesting for us and makes us glad.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles, from its inception has been a quality reference. In some way, it has managed to consolidate the destination because all our restaurants where there and we communicate as an exchange platform. The benefit, besides advertisement and recommendation, is that this publication is a solid copy of Puerto Vallarta’s evolution. If you pick up an old issue, immediately you’ll recall precious memories.”
