Colorful La Cruz
Updated: May 27
The city of La Cruz Mexico treated us very well. We found every resource we could ever need to prepare our boat for the next leg of the journey. Within just a few days, we were able to get the bottom cleaned, get the top and sides cleaned and waxed, have the oil changed, fill our propane, purchase additional Jerry cans, provision and do laundry.
Every individual we worked with did high-quality work on short notice, and at a reasonable cost. We were surprised to be able to do so much here. Means more time for fun in Cabo San Lucas.
The town this time of year is quiet and has more locals than visitors. I found an excellent cup of coffee, which makes any day better. I also fell in love with all the color and the many murals in the city.
We were privileged to be able to meet our crew member Hugo‘s wife Rosario. Hugo not only helped us on the passage, but also took us to the store for provisioning, ate meals with us, and on our last night, invited our new crew to Rosario‘s and his restaurant for dinner. Her food is beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. She specializes in seafood, which is fresh and flavorful. With a combination of our very little Spanish, their limited English, and Google translate we were able to carry on conversation and create a friendship.Doug has often said the most amazing part of this trip has been the people he’s met. La Cruz did not disappoint.
