Punta de Mita, Mexico - The town of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, often called the "Crown Jewel" of Riviera Nayarit, is considered a model town at the national level based on its economic and tourism standards. And, when the new highway to Punta Mita is completed, La Cruz's infrastructure is expected to develop even more.
According to State Government and construction company documents, the new four-lane highway is scheduled to open within the next three months, after a dispute with the La Cruz de Huanacaxtle Ejido, which halted construction one kilometer from the major highway, has been settled.
Considered one of the most important public infrastructure projects of the former administration's six-year term in the State of Nayarit, the four-lane highway that goes from La Cruz de Huanacaxtle to Punta de Mita serves the state's vision of improving communication and accessibility between these two tourist development areas.
The $250 million pesos state-funded project was initiated by former Nayarit Governor Ney González Sánchez, but was not completed during his term in office. So it was left to his successor, Roberto Sandoval, to see to the completion of the 7 kilometer stretch of concrete and asphalt that will link La Cruz de Huanacaxtle to Punta Mita.
Today the long-awaited highway is almost a reality, much to the relief of the area's inhabitants, including its hotel and tourism sectors, as it will convenience the many daily commuters between La Cruz de Huanacaxtle and Punta Mita, as well as the locals and tourists who come to this area for business and leisure.Source: Vallarta Opina
