La Cruz Community 2014 Celebrations & More!
Hola La Cruz community and beyond! Christmas Day was just beautiful with a gorgeous sunset! WOW ! and now more rain!! Okay…the rain is nice for a bit of freshness, and watering the jungle keeping things green and the dust washed off, but enough is enough! Folks and La Cruz Community businesses are preparing for outdoors New Years Eve Party’s, fireworks around the Banderas Bay, La Cruz community brunches starting up and outdoor business in general.
There is always a lot of fun going on in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. Many restaurants that are open all year long are more prepared for the rain and are under cover. These may be the places to go for the New Year’s festivities if the rain continues! Bah !
Regardless….everyone is still planning on having their festivities! Here are a few highlights of La Cruz community events and class schedules coming up for the new year. Remember to check the La Cruz community calendar for live music, new events and / or changes.

Casa Hule (Langosta 3, close to the taxi stand) is offering – get this; 3 for 50 pesos beer!!! Reduced price wine and pizza by the slice will also be available. Our hungrier Amigos can order a delicious dinner from the regular menu that includes a variety of Italian dishes including my favorites; lasagne and raviolis. Be sure to join the Amigos as we greet our old friends and make new ones. This is always a lively event so come early and stay late! Everyone is welcome.
