A Taste of La Cruz will feature a unique blend of businesses, services and restaurants including Alamar, Anfitrion, Arroyos Verdes & Restaurant Bambu, Bucerias Body Works, Café des Artistes, Café La Esquina, CMQ Hospital, Cornerstone Hospital, Duendee Coffees, Ernesto’s Good Grub, eSun Energy, Frascati, A Hand In The Kitchen, Huanacaxtle Bar-Café, Luna Lounge, Masala, Mexican American AC and Home Services, New World Gym, Osos’s Oyster Bar, PEACE, Pets Gone Wild, Puerto Bahia, Sandrina’s, Sandzibar, Simply Baku, (Mariscos) Tino’s, Todo Vela Mexico, La Vaka Gorda, Vallarta Gardens, Vera Café, Vinos & Wine and Xocolatl by Roberto’s with MANY more being added daily.

In addition, over 40 local artisans, craftsmen and purveyors will be offering their unique regional art, clothing and food.

The exciting musical lineup features some of the Bahia’s most notable and accomplished musicians. La Cruz’s Latcho & Andrea (the Blond Gypsies), the Banderas Bay Jazz All-Stars (with Chas Eller, Bryan Savage, Steve York and Lazaro Poey), Luna Rumba (with Cheko, Rodolfo Gonzales, Silvia Basurto Castellanos, Paolo Uccelli and violinist Geo Uhrich) and Harold Carrazana & Rumba Mix with his exciting dancers will entertain in the Xiriki Marina Amphitheater throughout the afternoon and early evening.

Last year’s first-ever event was a phenomenal success and attracted over 1,200 visitors to La Cruz de Huanacaxtle and the Marina Riviera Nayarit and this year expectations are for A Taste of La Cruz to exceed 2,000 visitors from throughout the Bahia de Banderas / Riviera Nayarit as well as Tepic, Guadalajara, Mexico DF, and Leon/Guanajuato.  

Exhibitors last year were unanimous in their praise of the expo/fair in providing an exciting and vibrant platform for the promotion of their businesses. Visitors were thrilled with the festival atmosphere, delicious food and drink and the variety of intriguing businesses and entrepreneurs in such an impressive venue.

Admission to A Taste of La Cruz will be 50 pesos and includes a free drink. Exhibitors will offer their goods for sale.
