Finding the right location to suit your lifestyle is key when buying a home in Mexico, so as part of our on-going “Getting to Know” series, this week we are exploring lovely La Cruz, Riviera Nayarit.

La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, generally just called “La Cruz”, is a lovely beach town located between Bucerias and Punta de Mita, Nayarit. It is an appealing area for those who are looking for luxury villas or oceanfront condos that are close to upscale amenities, like the high-end restaurants and golf courses, but want a more authentic Mexican experience than living behind the gates of Punta Mita.

Located about 25 minutes from the Puerto Vallarta International Airport and close to major grocery stores, La Cruz still has charming, sleepy fishing village feel and a true sense of community. A popular weekly Farmers Market takes place on the beautiful La Cruz Marina jetty and there is a fish market selling literally the catch of the day, brought in that morning from local fishermen.  There are also some superb restaurants including Frascati, Mark’s Bar & Grill and Casianos.  Or visit Eva Mandarina or B Nayar for a chic beach club day and enjoy the pool, beach, restaurants and amenities on offer.
