La Cruz Community Springtime Fun

 La Cruz Community March Madness

Hola La Cruz Community and Banderas Bay! This season has really sped on by, with only about a month and a half until Semana Santa (Easter)! Are there things that are still on your Riviera Nayarit vacation list that you would like to get crossed off? How about a trip over to Yalapa for the afternoon and see the waterfall? What an amazing little community!….Or an Alta Vista Petroglyph tour in the middle of the jungle?? These day tours are perfect because you can be back in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle just in time for the La Cruz community live music and dinner at one of your favorite La Cruz restaurants, like Masala Bar and Grill,  Octopus’s Garden, Black Forest Restaurant or Ana Banana Bar and Grill. Or maybe down on the La Cruz Marina at Oso’s Oyster Bar and Fish Market. What ever your preference…get out and enjoy the amazing weather, the La Cruz entertainment, and take some time to cross off that “to do” list.  If you are interested in an Alta Vista Petroglyphs tour email me at . Click on the photos that have the Riviera Nayarit Fun Logo on them to take you to more fun pics!

The Amigos de La Cruz is having their monthly La Cruz Community Happy Hour Meet and Greet at Las Tres Palapas Restaurant on the beach on Wednesday, March 5th from 5:30 – 7:30pm. Receive 20% off all drinks, and pick your choice of two Tapas for 50 pesos of Wonton skin with smoked marlin,  Crab cheese puff,  Fish ceviche in tortilla baskets,  Guacamole & chips,  Spring rolls or Baby back ribs.
See you on the 5th!

La Cruz Rentals

La Cruz Rentals vary, and its a good idea to book now if you are planning on a La Cruz vacation next season. Please email Cat Morgan at to go over some La Cruz rental options with you!

Villa Amor del Mar ~ La Cruz Boutique Hotel Excellence
At our Boutique Inn, Villa Amor del Mar, we take great pride in serving others and creating custom packages for each visitor as per their requests. Continental breakfast is served daily in private guestrooms with Mexican, freshly roasted coffee, fruit (often from our own trees) and special requests as per each guest. When guests book for 7 nights or more they also receive one brunch by the pool and one dinner on the rooftop looking out over the Banderas Bay to the Puerto Vallarta glimmering lights.

Our most recent Rooftop Fiesta included local music sensation Tatewari and fine dining prepared and served by chef Daniel… Jalapeño margaritas started the night with a bang. If a gourmet week excites you consider our Culinary Week; Margaritas and Mole or Tequila and Tacos; no need to choose you’ll learn to taste and create as the week unfolds. We’re bringing in a local Mexican chef and creating a foodie week.
Consider that here;
La Cruz Beachfront Boutique Inn….Villa Amor del Mar…..for a “Very Special Vacation”.
