Continuing the theme of progress, the new world class Marina in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle has capacity to accommodate the growing and ever present yacht scene so popular in this tropical bay. Plans include a vibrant boardwalk with shops, restaurants and condo developments.

Just north of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle is the walled beachfront compound of Real del Mar featuring exceptional homes, followed by the new luxury condo projects of Los Veneros and Arena Blanca popular with the Guadalajara country club set. A bit further north on the pristine beaches of Destilideras lies the Nahui development which promises to have a wide variety of residential options.

La Cruz proper has also seen recent investment with the multiple tower Alamar project, a master planned condominium development on nearly 100 acres of dramatic jungle hillside with affordable views and access to 5 acre private beach club.
