Riviera Partners was quick to post on Saturday that the final leg of the La Cruz - Punta de Mita highway has finally been opened. The new portion has four lanes and makes the trip much faster and certainly safer. The total time on this new section is only five minutes, but it probably took close to 15 minutes on the old road, with only two lanes and a lot of twisting and turning. Total time from Vallarta to Punta de Mita won't change a lot, but it certainly got much safer.
