A Taste of La Cruz – This Saturday, Jan 14!


They say it started in Chicago – this format of a festive event celebrating the fun of food, and the ability to sample tastes of signature dishes from an array of eateries. That annual summer food-fest, Taste of Chicago set the pace for communities to follow with similar events of their own.

And so it is for the the upcoming A Taste of La Cruz, slated for this Saturday, January 14th, at the Marina La Cruz Malecon & Amphitheater from 4 to 7pm. Lock it into your agenda, as it’s certain to be a blast. Organized by Amigos de La Cruz and the Marina Riviera Nayarit the event is free and open to the public, combining tastings from the town’s growing roster of restaurants, together with music by local entertainers and the simply lovely setting of the Marina docks. It will be a great chance to try out some of these neighbor restaurants that we’ve all heard so much about.

This La Cruz showcase will feature not only restaurants, but also merchants with shops and businesses in La Cruz, and the towns’ musicians playing along the marina malecon in an expo-fair setting.

Among the participating restaurants with menu tastings are: Black Forest, El Coleguita, Ensamble Wine Bar & Tapas, Eva’s Brickhouse, Falconi Pizzas, Frascati Restaurant, Galvez Restaurante, Oso’s Oyster Bar and Seafood Market Restaurant, Pacifica, Philo’s, La Placita, Sandzibar (Trio Restaurant Chef Bernard Güth’s newest La Cruz gourmet eatery), Tortuga Beach, El Violli and Vista Hermosa. As well, Marina Riviera Nayarit will be holding an open house to showcase their VIP Lounge, Ikuai Palapa Restaurant, Sailor’s Pub and the Taikai Skybar.

These winter weekends (under full-on sunshine) along the Punta de Mita North Shore are shaping up with each one better than the last. This event promises to be a super fun afternoon of noshing by the sea. And don’t forget—each Sunday, this same Marina is host to the weekly Market, from 10am-2pm.

Directions to the Marina in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle: From Highway 200 (Tepic/Puerto Vallarta) take the La Cruz/Punta de Mita exit and proceed into town. Get onto the lateral after the 2nd set of speed bumps and turn left at the only stoplight (Langosta) and continue downhill past the main plaza and into the Marina entrance. There will be ample parking available. For more information email: or visit:
