La Cruz Community, Fun and Entertainment

Hola La Cruz Community! Well, it certainly has been strange weather for October and November on
the Riviera Nayarit, as its been raining from the tropical depressions, as it rained again yesterday, Thursday,  November 7th cooling things down.  I, for one, love the rain as it is keeping everything green, but can be a bit of a show stopper for some businesses.The early sunrises over the Banderas Bay have been absolutely gorgeous in the mornings, and I thoroughly enjoy them!
