La Crucecita


La Crucecita is the town center of Huatulco and where many of the locals live. The zocalo (center plaza gazebo) is surrounded by shops and restaurants. The Santa Cruz Marina is also located less than 10 minutes away.

Many of the downtown hotels are within walking distance and the beachfront hotels are a short taxi ride away. Visitors will love to shop for handcrafted Oaxaca goods here, like handwoven rugs, shirts and dresses, pottery, traditional Mezcal alcohol, jewelry, souvenirs and so much more.

The town church, Parroquia de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe, is also located in the center of town and a beautiful place to visit no matter your religious affiliation. La Crucecita is a safe place to visit and tourists are welcomed by the local people.


Numerous local restaurants, ice cream shops and Mezcal shops fill the area.


Parking surrounds the streets.
