A friend just shot this aerial showing the progress of the new road to Punta de Mita from La Cruz. Soon we will be to bypass the winding road out of La Cruz. The new highway project has been planned and promised for more than eight years. The 4-lane road will extend 7.4 kilometers
Representing an investment of $250 million pesos (approximately $20 million USD) the long-promised four-lane highway runs between La Cruz de Huanacaxtle and Punta de Mita. This important infrastructure project will benefit the entire North Shore of Banderas Bay, creating a faster, safer access to these north shore communities. The road will be constructed of hydrolic cement, replacing the existing 2-lane asphalt road that currently exists. Trish
