Hola La Cruz Community and Banderas Bay!
Its time for the weekly La Cruz Community News Splash, and as usual, there is always something new every week to check out and to get on your calendar.
This photo (left) is one of my favorite beaches…Destilederas Beach. There are three restaurants there daily, and they close at 6pm. You can rent a table with umbrella, or a lounger, each for 50 pesos if you like and order beers and food. …all with free parking up on top.
OR, you may also do what I like to do…carry my little folding lounger and umbrella, along with a small chest with a few beers and cruz past the beach restaurants to find a quiet spot to myself when I feel like relaxing…ahhhh, perfect for my day off!
One event coming up is a Amigos de La Cruz bake sale, with a fun play called “Just Desserts”. There will be four shows on March 6th, 7th, 13th, and 14th at the Octopus’s Garden. It will be a dinner / play with twists and turns, and a bake sale! More info to come on what is going to be served as well as the pricing..so stay tuned! Its going to be a lot of fun for everyone in the La Cruz community and folks around our beautiful Banderas Bay area.
