La Cruz de Huanacaxtle (part 2)

In this post you will know more about this village we stayed.  La Cruz de Huanacaxtle.

When on vacations, I barely look at the calendar but I try to know what day of the week it is. We get up when we are ready. In La Cruz, we like to go for our morning walk before breakfast and before it gets too hot too. We walk by the marina. The smell is not very nice but it is fun to see the action. Customers come early to get fresh fish.


Men are chatting. I notice how the Mexicans never run. Why should they? The sun rises. They get up. The sun moves slowly and when it sets, they also call it a day. No need to be stressed. They do not look stress but I also know that most of them are not rich. They have a simple house, a simple life.


Many of them have never traveled outside their country. Our morning walk last about one hour. After that, I am ready for my second shower of the day!

La Cruz is a small village a few thousand people. Many people                  (Canadians  or Americans ) come here to spend winter away from snow, cold and rain. Here at Villa Amor del Mar, I enjoy the quiet garden. When I am too hot, I refresh in the pool for a few minutes.

I like to walk in the village. There are very few cars. Many streets are just cobblestones. I think the main street is paved and most of the streets are just like the one you see here.dsc00187

People hang their clothing to dry. Why not ? It is sunny and it will dry in no time.dsc00197

I will show you a few of the birds we see.  The first one is an egret.  Probably the snowy egret. Which is a small white heron.




You might know more than me about those birds. If you do, tell me what you think those are. Thanks.

More on La Cruz in my next post. Hasta luego!
