When many people envision a Mexican vacation getaway, they think of the popular hotspots like Acapulco and Ixtapa. These vibrant and bustling metropolitan centers are all about having a good time—and having it in nightclubs, crowded shops, and beaches full of people.
While this kind of vacation has its own appeal, we know it isn’t for everyone. That’s why Casa de la Sirena offers a low-key, relaxing alternative. If you’ve ever wanted to enjoy a quiet beach town set on the tropical Mexican coast, Troncones is the place for you.
Small Towns in Mexico
Small towns in Mexico are a little like small towns all over the world—there is less of a focus on commerce and more of a focus on people. Mexican villages are known to offer more family-owned and operated business (restaurants, shops, and recreational facilities) and to add a personal touch to every experience. Small towns are where you’ll find the best open-air markets and handcrafted wares, and all in a setting that doesn’t put pressure on you to buy.
That’s because instead of being one more tourist pushing dollars and cents through the city, you become a recognized face. It’s not uncommon to find yourself chatting with locals and learning about the secret hotspots that you can only find if you know the area. And the atmosphere is much more relaxed, as well. Because there is no press of people, and because much of the landscape is untouched, there is no hurry to get to the next big sight or adventure. In a small town, adventure happens at its own pace, and you can spend as much or as little time getting to know the people and all the town has to offer.
Troncones, located about forty-five minutes from the Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo region, is the ultimate Mexican village. Although Troncones is considered a tourist town, it is also a fishing village, a close-knit community, and a place where history and nature can be found in abundance.
For hundreds of years, Troncones existed only as a tucked away town where generations of fishermen worked hard at their trade and built a comfortable, beachside life for their families. It wasn’t until recently that the town began to see tourists move through—and even then, in small numbers that help retain a private and intimate feeling. Many of the activities and dining opportunities here still have ties to these early fishing days. Whether you prefer to see your fish on a plate or on the end of a fishing rod, there’s plenty here for everyone!
The community in Troncones is also something to be marveled at. Because the population is small and most families have grown up together, there is a sense of camaraderie you won’t find anywhere else in the world. And even better—Casa de la Sirena and the other upscale Mexican beach villas here are part of this setting. We know the locals and work with them to provide the best opportunities for both our guests and their businesses. It’s a personal touch we’ve ingrained into our business practices, and that you won’t find just anywhere.
If you want quiet serenity, plenty of nature, and an opportunity to get to know the warm, welcoming people of coastal Mexico, you’ve come to the right place. Make your next Mexico beach vacation a personal experience you’ll never forget—and do it in a small town that cares as much about your enjoyment as its own.
