Small town with few things to do, however there are some very good restaurant choices and craft workshops to browse thru.

Very nice little town with restaurants and local shops however be on guard for who is watching / following you. We were probably unlucky but we're followed around the centre which we clocked and then he followed us into a shop walking quickly he waited outside peering through the window (face against the glass) watching us inside for a good...

La Crucecita is adorable! Full of locals,I love to sit in a cantina and people watch. Its exceptionally charming when the primary school lets out and the families are walking home together. The gazebo in the park is relaxed and full of people enjoying their siesta. Lots of shopping and only a $4 cab ride from Dreams.

This quaint little town is located about 10 minutes from hotels in the Tangolunda Bay, where we stayed. There are so many places to eat authentic Oaxacan food. The town is the closest to the hotels so you may run into hotel staff in town on their off days. This only led us to believe more in its authenticity and... More

A great place for food, drink and entertainment! The square is packed with local families and vendors which gives a tourist a true Mexican experience.

We really enjoyed coming here and resting after a long day of walking around town. Some times we would get a snack and a drink and sit in the gazebo just to have a rest and some peace. The church across the street is lovely. Worth the walk over to see its beauty. There is no shortage of food around... More

We enjoyed visiting the church and surrounding area in La Crucecita. We took a cab there from our hotel (about $7) and explored. You don't need more than 2-3 hours to take it all in. You will definitely be approached by vendors selling their goods, but it never felt unsafe or pushy. Very friendly people and we definitely enjoyed our... More

This is the best place to eat out when you are in La Crucecita. It was recommended to us and we eat out a couple of times. They have a variety of foods to choose from and reasonable prices. Also, big helping. We really enjoy eating there and its very popular place and close.

Have been 3 times now, love the local markets. Lots of variety of menus to choose from. Parking is an issue if you live in the area. A hub for festivals and local events.
