A Little Bit of History

La CrucecitaUntil the early 1980s, this interwoven group of nine bays had just one isolated village with no water or electricity that was accessible only by a dirt road. Today, the lively town of La Crucecita is home to bars, restaurants and affordable hotels.

In 1983, the first luxury hotels opened, quickly followed by the construction of the airport, a golf course and a marina. The area now has exclusive hotels located by Tangolunda; a marina and residential area in Chahue;restaurants, family recreational areas and a marina in Santa Cruz; and thatched-roof palapas, restaurants and excellent reef diving offered at San Agustin.
