La Cruz Huanacaxtle
Best known for: World class Marina, fishing village and great restaurants. A true old-fashioned fishing village, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle or La Cruz as it is known locally, receives ships from all over the world throughout the year. Nautical travelers are awed by these beaches, surrounded by lush green palm trees and jungle foliage cascading down from the Sierra de Vallejo Mountains.
La Cruz has really stepped up to the plate this recently with new energy infused into the area. A number of new restaurants in La Cruz have opened here adding some excellent choices for dining and entertainment. More and more special events are drawing in large crowds to the area making the Riviera Nayarit even more attractive.
La Cruz de Huanacaxtle enjoys the laid-back and comfortable ambiance of a small coastal town. It is surprising, then, to note that here you will find the largest and most modern marina on the Nayarit Shore. The world class marina can accommodate up to 400 boats and hosts a series of sailing challanges.
Each year, special events such as the "Riviera Nayarit Nautical Extravaganza" & the "International Marlin & Tuna Tournament" Are great opportunities to come and see what La Cruz has to offer!
