Beautiful place to walk around. Go on a Sunday night if you can. Lots of families out eating and dancing in the square.

La Crucecita still has the authentic Mexican feel with great places to eat. The people are friendly and willing to help tourist. Love this place. Hope it never changes.

Visited 1st with a city tour from our hotel. Took a cab 2 more times to have more opportunity to walk and look around. Friendly people and shops. This is still undergoing developments for tourism so you can still see the charm of Mexico.

My husband and I visited Huatulco for the first time. We enjoyed walking around La Crucecita, visiting the many artisan shops & factories. The locals are so friendly & charming! We decided to shop for a few souvenirs and chocolate/tequila. We had fun bargaining for deals and didn't find any of the vendors to be pushy at all. What a... More

We went to town to see the church, buy some souvenirs, and have supper. It's a very safe and quaint town. We felt comfortable exploring and found the Santa Cruz grocery store were a lovely young man helped us pick out some hot sauces and tequila. We shopped in the local market to pick-up some souvenirs and got exactly what... More

We enjoyed strolling in the evening and getting some crema bars (fruit ice cream). Just enough vendors to be interesting and not overwhelming. Local flavor. We felt comfortable and at ease.

Took a cab ride from Barcelo Huatulco to do some shopping and get out of the sun at the beach. Dropped off near town centre near the church. Saw some interesting things one wouldn't see in Saskatchewan like people standing inline to throw their garbage in the garbage truck. People very friendly. Able to barter which is half the fun.

If you're in Huatulco, you definitely should visit La Crucecita. There's a nice square, some awesome shops, and great restaurants. It's a really nice change of pace from staying at your resort all day.
