Located in the heart of the La Cruz de Huanacaxtle village, enjoy an authentic Mexico vacation. Walk to the beach, restaurants and bars. Take the bus to Sayulita, Punta Mita or Puerto Vallarta. Or rent a car and drive anywhere in the Bay of Banderas.
Casa La Cruz is less than a block away from 'Tacos on the Street' which boasts the best tacos in the entire area (folks drive 30 minutes just to get here). http://bit.ly/pjofXK
Only a few blocks from the November to April Mercado Huanacaxtle Sunday Market http://bit.ly/XJZyqH which may be the most vibrant and diverse crafts market in the Bahia de Bandera.
You're close enough to downtown Old Vallarta you can go there and spend the day shopping or sightseeing, but far enough away that you can ignore it altogether and not see another tourist all day long. Sometimes you want to mix it up, and sometimes you want to just relax.
Many of the day-trip operators (like Vallarta Adventures) operate out of Nuevo Vallarta, and you're closer at our house to these activities than you would be if you stayed in Old Town.
Bucerias, which is just next to La Cruz, is a larger town which has art galleries, internet cafes, bakeries, local tiendas, several drugstores, car rental agencies, numerous fine dining choices and waterfront activities like para-sailing and jetskis in front of the hotels. Most of the large Mexican banks have branches in Bucerias as well as ATM machines, where you can cash your traveller's checks or withdraw in pesos using your debit card. Check with your bank at home before you leave - sometimes if you withdraw from a particular Mexican bank, there are no fees.
Some of our favorite restaurants in Bucerias include Sandrina's, Karen's, Cuisine Le Fort, Bistrot o Delices, La Lomita, Tapas del Mundo, Mark's, Famar - a week's stay is never enough to visit every one.
We usually rent a car at Gecko in Bucerias when we come. They'll pick us up at the airport and bring us to their office which less than five minutes from the house.
You'll recognize some international supermarket brands (Sam's, Walmart, Coppel) as well as local Mexican brands along the highway from the airport where you can stock up on essentials for your stay. We usually stop at the Mega between Bucerias and Mezcales. You can also find many of the essentials at local tiendas, and there seems to be one every few blocks in every town or village, including La Cruz.
Year Purchased: 2006
About: We are based in the San Francisco-area and have been part-time residents of Nayarit since 2000.
Why La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, Nayarit, Mexico:
This is our second home in the area; we first 'arrived' in 2000. We built this house after living in a gated community nearby--while we loved our fellow homeowners, we longed for time with Mexican Nationals and living in the village of La Cruz has brought this and so much more. Our daughters grew up spending summers in the area and now as adults, they return whenever their schedules permit.
