La Cruz Community is One Happening Pueblo!
The La Cruz community is really buzzing this February! There has been so many events and more artistic and musical performances than ever this season. La Cruz de Huanacaxtle Mexico is spread out a bit, and many terrific La Cruz restaurants and live music events are off of the main street. The cobblestone streets with the shops like the La Cruz Huichol Art Gallery, and other interesting stores and the La Cruz entertainment, makes this authentic Mexican pueblo on the Riviera Nayarit fun to walk around and discover the hidden gems and treasures.
Last Sunday the La Cruz Sunday Market which is held at the La Cruz Marina was overflowing with people. It is the largest market on the Riviera Nayarit, with at least 200 vendors selling everything you can imagine, the La Cruz Fish Market, live music and all with the ambiance of the La Cruz Marina. As I left about 1:30, there were still a lot of people streaming into the market and cars were parked up the street for a long way, although, there always seems to be a place to park if you hold the intention on the drive over.
The weather in La Cruz Nayarit, and around the Banderas Bay has been hot. and absolutely gorgeous! It's perfect for whale watching, kayaking, and paddle boarding, or simply lazing on the playa with a good book. The afternoon winds that come up this time of the season are perfect for sailing days that end with an amazing Mexico sunset as you head back into the marina. This whale photo is one from my patio that I took earlier today!
