We went into La Crucecita almost everyday. Fun to explore all the shops, great restaurants, lovely town square. We found vendors to be a bit pushier than Santa Cruz. We were able to see the Revolutionary Day parade which was a lot of fun.

Was surprised at how big and clean the city is. Lots of vendors and people trying to pull you into their stores, but we felt safe through all. Good places for food, cheap taxi ride to get there from Dreams resort ($4 US) and lots of options

La Crucecita is a nice town to do some shopping and sightseeing and get a bit of real Mexican feel. The church and central square were very charming, as well as the local museum about local culture.

Cute little town. Lot's of restaurants, many cater to tourists. Very clean, felt very safe walking around. Many taxis reasonably priced back to resort. Beautiful church to visit with domed, painted ceiling.

this town was so simple and sweet! I really enjoyed walking around the streets wondering into the many shops. My Maid of Honor (MOH) and I had no problem wondering around all by ourselves. The people are really honest too! I forgot my necklace at the masseuse and she arranged to bring it back to me at my hotel. My... More

we walked over here from the La Playa which takes a bit more the a half hour. We first went to visit the market which did not have much to offer. Afterwards we went by the Town square and finally to the local church. A nice walk.

definitely worth the cab ride over to this quaint little town. The church is a must see...one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen. Lots of shopping some of the vendors were a little pushy, but not too bad...were very friendly. Never felt unsafe
