A Week for Lovers in the La Cruz Community
Hola La Cruz Community and beyond! Valentine’s Day is in two days…and love is in the air on the Riviera Nayarit! Have you decided where you will be taking your sweetie? La Cruz de Huanacaxtle Mexico is a romantic pueblo on the Riviera Nayarit. A very casual town, La Cruz has a more authentic Mexican pueblo feeling in comparison to some of the other pueblos.
The La Cruz community is nestled on the Banderas Bay and holds a small town feeling while at the same time has the romantic ambiance and feel with the La Cruz Marina and Mexican town square. The small town is spread out with the streets being named after fish. Not everything is right off of main street, and there are restaurants all over the town, so explore some your options!
Where will you be celebrating your Valentines day this year? Maybe a few different venues…why not?…spread the love around!!!
The La Cruz Sunday Market was thriving last Sunday.….and as it should be due to the fact its the largest market around! This market has it all! While you wander about listening to live music, enjoy all of your farmers market produce, cheeses, breads, fresh peanuts and peanut butter, jewelry, soaps and creams food for take home, and down at the end of the jetty you will find baked goodies, empanada’s, felafels and steak sandwiches….and oh sooo much more….at the other end find metal art, clothes, shoes….WOW…the La Cruz Sunday Market has it all with over 200 vendors!
Every Sunday during high season….Bring your cooler in the car for all of the goodies and enjoy the day at the La Cruz Sunday Market located down on the La Cruz Marina by Oso’s Oyster Bar and the La Cruz Fish Market!
Building A New Playground and Skate Park for La Cruz Kids
We are Centro Cultural Comunitario La Cruz (CCC), a small local organization based in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, Nayarit, Mexico. The intention of Centro Comunitario La Cruz is to create and maintain a sense of culture and community here in La Cruz, and we think that there is no better place for us to start than with the kids, the foundation of our society.
We already have the land…All of the overgrowth from last summer has been cleared out by a Mexican volunteer, Roberto, and his machete…And we have already purchased the recycled materials to make the playground equipment with…The primary goal of this Indiegogo project is to raise money to buy the materials to build the foundation for the park and the skate park.
We are currently working towards becoming an official documented non-profit organization here in Mexico, but in the mean time we are receiving help and guidance from Entre Amigos, a like minded 501(c)(3) organization that has already achieved many of our goals up in San Pancho, a small town about 30 minutes north of us. Learn more about Entre Amigos here à http://entreamigos.org.mx/
To see all of the details on the exact cost, please visit our Facebook page, and if you can, please donate. The children will be very grateful. All donations will go straight towards building this new playground. There are also some perks for donating.!!

Villa Amor del Mar
Serving others by way of food and entertaining has always been a passion of mine, to combine that ‘hobby’ with running our La Cruz Boutique Inn has brought me more joy than I knew possible. This week I’ve been able to hook folks up with the best whale watching/sunset cruise, in my opinion, Red Dolphin Sailing charters as well as I’ve seen to many of their other vacation desires. Guests have been blown away by our Bay of Banderas, the whales, the music of our town; they were enchanted by Latcho & Andrea, they couldn’t get enough of the fabulous food and so much more. Villa Amor del Mar is a special place for lovers!
If you still have Valentine’s open, consider a night at Villa Amor del Mar to Romance your sweetie.
Please let Chris and I (Cindy) share all that is La Cruz with you.
