We visited Cruceita daily during our short stay. Lots of good restaurants. Bypass the Che and buy your fruits and veggies here. Cute little flea market selling typical tourist goods. Nice to sit under the gazebo and people watch.

It's good for shopping. It's a typical Mexican City if you've ever been to Mexico anywhere. It is clean and has good restaurants.
