La Cruz de Huanacaxtle is just north of
Puerto Vallarta in Banderas Bay.
It is a small village with a large marina.
This is where we left Loomba-Loomba
when we flew home for Christmas for
If any of you are heading to the Puerto
Vallarta area it is a nice alternative to the
busy and touristy areas of Banderas Bay.
A typical day in La Cruz:
|Dona Maria is a fixture around the marina.|
She collects aluminum cans that everyone
sets aside near the trash for her. She's been
doing this for at least the seven years we've
been coming here.
|This is Guido's Italian Deli Sandwich booth at the La Cruz|
Sunday Market. Jim's favorite!
|The local ice cream shop on the main square.|
|The creepiest and most unique boat on our dock.|
We've never seen anyone on it.
|View of the marina from the town side.|
A walk through town:
|Heading up Langosta (the main street) from the marina.|
Restaurants on the right, main square on the left.
|A Huanacaxtle tree in the main square.|
|The La Cruz Inn and Restaurant (far side of square)|
|Christmas and New Year decorations on the square|
|The Green Turtle Resaurant and Bar|
|The Cave Restaurant|
|The night veggie market.|
Wednesday at 7PM.
Very fresh produce!
|Another street along the square.|
|The White Whale Restaurant|
Loomba-Loomba was almost at the end of this very long dock.
We are leaving Chemala today after spending
three nights here and heading for Tenacatita.
