La Cruz de Huanacaxtle Mexico | Nayarit Marina, Things to Do

La Cruz – An Authentic Mexican Fishing Village

Tradition has always been one of the essential characteristics of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle Mexico, which is just 6-km up the coast from Bucerias.

A fishing village for generations, this coastal town has been modernized thanks to the construction of the Riviera Nayarit Marina —the largest and most modern of the corridor. Nayarit Marina has helped to create a Nayarit destination that harmoniously combines the traditional life of a Mexican pueblo with the sophistication of a modern development. So, when visiting La Cruz, as the locals call it, you will have the opportunity to witness postcardworthy scenes such as the arrival of fishermen on the pier in their Panga boats loaded with a variety of fish.

About Nayarit Marina

Vacation in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle Mexico and admire the beautiful sunsets as you savor a margarita in the Sky Bar located inside the Marina. “We seek contact with authentic Mexico,” expresses Rafael Alcántar, Harbor Master of the Marina.

Nayarit Marina is the most modern on the Mexican Pacific with a capacity of 400 ships measuring between 30 and 400 feet. The marina is equipped with all the services needed for a comfortable stay: bathrooms and showers, security, electricity and fueling stations.

This modern La Cruz development includes a yacht club, business center, sky bar, restaurant, seafood market, and pier. It also has one of the best equipped shipyards in the country, which among other things, is home to the largest travel lift on the Pacific. Aiming to spur additional growth of this area of Riviera Nayarit, a plan has been set in motion to house commercial spaces within the Marina for the market’s most recognized name brands, condominiums and restaurants.

Future of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle Mexico

La Cruz is now open to investment with the projected development area of 132,000 meters (82 miles). Many new establishments will soon be developed in the area.

All of the maritime development and fishing village charms of La Cruz wouldn’t be complete without the golden sands of La Cruz Beach, which covers five kilometers (three miles) and is divided into five sections: El Tizate, Cruz de Huanacaxtle, La Manzanilla, Piedra Blanca, and Arena Blanca.

Here, you will find not only the obvious delights of a tropical beach, but also a variety of restaurants where you can dine on dishes of freshly caught fish and creations that have been a culinary tradition of this town for more than 50 years.

And there is no shortage of things to do in the area. Enjoy numerous local activities such as snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing (in winter the waves reach heights adequate for this sport), and of course fishing. Deep sea fishing is one of the main water activities of La Cruz, thanks to the abundance of fish species such as tuna, marlin and mahi-mahi.

Imagine fishing tournaments held under the glowing light of a full moon and colorful festivals with the Pacific Ocean as the guest of honor. Tie up your yacht in this town where tradition still abounds. All of this and more awaits you where the “tree that hears” anticipates the sound of your voice.
