La Crucecita is a small, Mexican community that houses many workers serving the nearby resort town of Huatulco and its 36 beaches. Overlooking the main square is La Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe Church. Inside is a 65 foot painting of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Also called Our Lady of Guadalupe, it recounts the story of the Virgin Mary appearing to a peasant named Juan Diego on Tepeyac hill in Mexico in 1531. He was declared a saint in 2002.
