Kevin and Cindy have made several new friends here, and we all have been enjoying the town which is definitely gringo-friendly, but has a very authentic Mexican flavor. The environment here is nothing like the hotel zones of the big tourist destination towns, although Puerto Vallerta is only about 10 miles away. We much prefer this environment compared to the totally Americanized tourist destinations.

|Many puffer fish out here. We caught this little guy and released him a few minutes later, very cute!|
|We moved the hammock to the boat deck. Was nice up there (but in the sun)|

There are many opportunities for cruising kids to take on new challenges.
|Blessing of the fishing fleet of Panga's from La Cruz, they went to Bucerias for|
the rest of the festivities. This is a 70 year tradition and is a BIG deal.

|Movie night at Marina La Cruz. We saw two movies here. The kids have a|
separate movie night in the VIP lounge every week.
|La Cruz farmers market. Two nights a week they have this. Mostly it is for the local|
restaurants, but cruisers are welcome. Very fresh, and very cheap prices. Score!
