La Cruz

Josh and I spent the month of January and part of February on S/V Estrella in and around the wonderful little town of La Cruz. Located on the northern shore of Bandaras Bay, (and near Puerto Vallarta), La Cruz turned out to be quite the cruiser's mecca and we found ourselves constantly reconnecting with old friends from La Paz and new friends from mainland Mexico.

Our first night in La Cruz found us at Ana Banana's bar and restaurant. Strangely enough, we found the telltale signature of La Paz friends, John and Liz from M/V Outta Here, on the kitchen wall of Ana Banana's.

As seen in the above photo, the kitchen wall of Ana Banana's has proven a popular graffiti spot for cruisers and land-based gringos passing through La Cruz.

Ana Banana's restaurant also has their own version of Margaritaville. This place regularly fills up almost every night as it is a popular spot for local bands to play.

La Cruz is also home to abundant, delicious, and cheap fruit and vegetables. Banana trees line one of the walkways to and from the marina in La Cruz.

Coconut trees were planted along the breakwater at the marina in La Cruz. Part of Puerto Vallarta is visible in the distance across Bandaras Bay.

The marina in La Cruz early in the morning. S/V Estrella is docked just out of range of the photo on the left.
