This marketplace in the middle of the ocean has spectacular views, and the best regional products are now available in Virtual Reality.

The Riviera Nayarit’s oldest artisan market offers gorgeous ocean views, and a fantastic variety of select products made regionally and in different states around Mexico.

The Riviera Nayarit has joined together with Jebus Media to present La Cruz Market in virtual reality. This interactive visit offers more than 100 images with 360° views of one of the region’s most famous seasonal markets.

La Cruz Market, located inside the Marina in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, is in the middle of the ocean and has spectacular views and the best artisanal products.

Thanks to Virtual Reality, the user can visit the market from the comfort of their office or home, immersing themselves while contacting exhibitors and learning more about their products and stories. They can also visit their social media or websites and approach them directly via the virtual space.

The best part? Buyers can make online purchases right off the website.


The history of the Mercado Huanacaxtle artisanal products began on November 21, 2010, with an idea thought up by a group of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle residents. The goal was to create a multicultural event to promote artisanal products without the middleman and attract the thousands of tourists that visit Banderas Bay every year, allowing them to interact directly with local artisans.

The market has grown year after year, attracting diverse vendors from the community who offer authentic products and delicious eats. Every Sunday, you’ll find local and handmade products, including bread, organic fruits and vegetables, dressings and jams, clothing made in Mexico, bikinis, hand-embroidered items, rugs, pottery, jewelry, art, and a wide variety of freshly prepared food and drink, and much more.

There are also craft workshops for kids, yoga classes, and live music all day in the amphitheater facing the water.

La Cruz Market is open every Sunday from November through April, but now you can stop in for a virtual visit nearly every day of the year at any time you like.

The Riviera Nayarit is a safe destination. Our hotels, restaurants, and tourist establishments follow all the health protocols established by the Federal Government’s Ministry of Health and operate at the allowed capacities. Access to the beaches is limited. Be a responsible tourist: wear your mask and keep your distance.

We’re ready!

The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB) reaffirm their commitment to the strategic promotion of the destination. They are pursuing areas of opportunity and consolidating new markets to increase the number of incoming tourists to the destination for the benefit of all Nayarit residents with the support of the Government of the State of Nayarit.
