La Cruz de Huanacaxtle

People just call it La Cruz. What a beautiful place! We left Punta Mita around 0930 yesterday for the short eight mile trip and anchored outside the small harbor here. Located on the northern coast of Banderas Bay about twelve miles from downtown Puerto Vallarta, La Cruz is the kind of place cruising sailors can spend a lot of time...It's an old and colorful small town with lots of great restaurants, well equipped marine hardware store, plenty of dive bars that cater to expats and yatistas and a mellow pace that makes me want to sit back in the shade of the rooftop palapa at the La Cruz Yacht Club and sip a tall cool margarita. Which is what we did as soon as we got ashore yesterday. I like this place and think we'll hang out here a few more days.


  1. Are you fluent in Spanish? In your book, Cliff is, as you obviously know. At this time in your life, was the book yet in your mind? Thank you

  2. I am fluent in Spanish. I began thinking about writing the book in 2015. I created Cliff, the main character in Voyage To Crusoe during this period. He is also the main character in Darien, the sequel to Voyage To Crusoe, which will be available next year.
