About Gabriela Laverty
She says: I am originally from Guadalajara, Mexico and always enjoyed going to the beach every other weekend. All the beaches around Nayarit are beautiful and many of them secluded and enchanting. When I moved to Canada, one of the things I missed the most was this trips to the beach. In 2008, in one of our many visits to the Puerto Vallarta region, my husband and I fell in love with La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. Ever since, we go back as much as we can and continue to love it and enjoy it with our three daughters... He says: I am from Canada. I have lived and worked from coast to coast as well as abroad. I married my wife and fell in love with the rich and diverse culture Mexico has to offer. I continue to be astounded by the kind and hospitable people, the amazing geography, the world-class cuisine.

Why Gabriela Laverty chose La Cruz de Huanacaxtle
She says: I grew up visiting often all the region of Bahia de Banderas and Puerto Vallarta. Once we saw the property at "La Joya" ,we fell in love with the town. It has great restaurants, a very nice marina, the Sunday market... So much! The size of the condo is just perfect and the areas are very well designed. It is just a very comfortable, beautiful and relaxing. The fish market is just steps from the condo and we could cook all this delicious meals with fish caught the same day. He says: La Cruz really has it all. Personally I really love coming down here and enjoying a different pace of life! It's easy to get to, very safe, and ideally situated for taking advantage of everything the area has to offer - no matter what you are looking for. My kids will spend all day at the pool and beach. We alternate eating and dining in (buy local! The produce, fresh seafood, and local meats are out of this world!). Although we have explored the whole region over the years we still find new delights every time. You don't need to leave La Cruz, but on longer stays I love day trips to the nearby towns. Puerto Vallarta has outstanding nightlife, fine cuisine, and great shopping. Sayulita or Punta Mita are a surfer's paradise and very popular. Bucerias is much loved by Canadians and has shopping, beachfront restaurants, bars, and nightlife. One can arrange every kind of tour or excursion imaginable.
What makes this Condo unique
She says: Our condo has a unique and tasteful decor with a modern Mexican style. The furniture was chosen carefully to create a nice ambiance and comfort. The terrace is equipped to eat and barbecue outdoors. Everything you expect to have in your holiday is there. He says: Great location. Something for everybody. Easy on the pocketbook. Careful, you may end up falling in love with this place too!

Wonderful place to stay in a great town. The unit exceeded our expectations and was well equipped for our needs during our time in La Cruz. Convenient location and the pool was fabulous. We would definitely stay here again if we are back in the area.
Loved La Cruz
Great apartment, as described. Nice secure complex. Two blocks to the beach. Very nice pool. Quiet town. We loved it there.
I gave neutral 3 stars for the communication with property manager for the following reason: upon arrival we had a little issue and were not able to reach the manager. However, the owner answered my call and resolved the problem quickly. Later on, the manager was available when we needed her.
We will definitely stay here again in the future.
Was very please with our stay at LaJoya.everthing we need was there. Will return.
This place was perfect - easy to walk to the fish market and into town. We went to the beach most days, but also took advantage of the pool and the big deck. Staff is very friendly and the complex is really taken care of. The town is really fun - we'll be back!
Great Month in La Cruz!
Once again we had a great time in this quaint little town. The La Joya complex is perfect for us - centrally located with beautiful grounds and pool as well as friendly people living there. The beach and marina are very close as are restaurants, music and the town square. Buses or cabs are close by when needed to go to Bucerias, PV or Mega; otherwise we walked everywhere. Such great local business owners also! The unit had everything we needed and is very nicely done. Thank you Lorenza and Gabriela for great communications as well! We will be back !
Great Stay at La Joya
We really enjoyed our 2 month stay at La Joya. The unit was well appointed and provided all we needed. The few problems we encountered were quickly and efficiently dealt with by the property manager. We would recommend this condo to all who are considering a visit to La Cruz.

La Cruz de Huanacaxtle offers the one–of-a-kind charm characteristic of the mix traditional México and tourism. About 20 minutes North of Puerto Vallarta’s International Airport, La Cruz is a fishing village and favorite anchorage for visiting sailors.
La Cruz takes its name from a Huanacaxtle tree that is in the form of a cross (“cruz” in Spanish) at the entrance to the town.
This colorful Mexican town has cobblestone streets, a number of small interesting shops, and access to beautiful beaches, such as Punta Mita. Just a few of the recreational activities available in La Cruz include snorkeling, surfing, fishing, sailing, etc. As you stroll the village streets, music seems to be everywhere. Throughout the high season, talented local and international artists perform several nights a week in area restaurants that offer a great diversity of Mexican and International cuisine.
"La Cruz," as it is known to the locals, is a picturesque fishing village with all of the ingredients for a peaceful and relaxing vacation.
