Travelers Pick La Cruz de Huanacaxtle as Mexico's Most Welcoming City

Amigos de La Cruz
September 28, 2016, one of the largest online travel agencies in the world, used their verified rankings and user comments to select the 40 most welcoming cities in Mexico — and the Riviera Nayarit’s La Cruz de Huanacaxtle took first place.

The top elements that came into play for the choice were hospitality, comfort and tranquility; Punta Mita came in at no. 8 and Nuevo Vallarta joined in at no. 38.
Over 30 thousand assessment questionnaires were analyzed to determine the most comfortable cities in all of Mexico.
The description of La Cruz reads as follows: “The first name on this exclusive list is this colorful fishing village located in the Riviera Nayarit. It has a small population, making it a tranquil destination; it has an excellent climate and beautiful beaches. Here you can experience the Arte Huichol gallery and the Museo del Tequila y Mariachi, or go out fishing. It offers different options for tourists.”

The town took the spotlight with a score of 4.75 out of a maximum of 5.
