Wildlife in Guerrero, Mexico
Guerrero is known around the world as an ecological wonder. Within this small state, you’ll find everything from ocean and beachfront wildlife to the mountainous forests of the interior. Unlike many other tourist destinations in Mexico, this one remains an environmental haven thanks to a strong focus by the Mexican Government on sustainability and eco-tourism.
In fact, this small fishing village has one of the largest collections of sea turtle hatcheries, alternative waste management systems, and solar-run businesses in all of Mexico. Sanctuary lagoons are open to the public, and birdwatching is a popular pastime both on the coast and further in the interior. You’ll even find nature outposts designed to help facilitate your exploration into the wildlife.
Whether you prefer to enjoy nature by exploring the waterfalls and federally-protected forests by foot, or if you want an insider’s look at how the scientific community here has embraced species preservation, you’ll find it all within an easy distance of your Mexican beach villa at Casa de la Sirena.
When to Visit Mexico?
Your eco-experience in the tropical Troncones region will depend primarily on when you make your visit. Although our location means that you’ll find warm weather and sun throughout the year, there are still marked seasons that have an impact on local wildlife.
- Dry Season: The drier season lasts from November through May, and you’ll enjoy sun almost every day—a big change from the colder winters up north.
- Rainy Season: From June through October, the rainy season comes into play. This doesn’t mean you’ll be forced to stay inside—it just means you can expect higher rates of humidity, more rain in the early morning, and some major waves out on the ocean. This is the best time for eco-tourists, since this is when the flowers come into bloom and the native animals begin their reproductive season.
Your Mexican Beach Getaway
One of the best things about a place like Troncones is that there is no one-size-fits-all Mexican beach vacation package. You can easily immerse yourself in the ecology here, spending all of your time in the wildlife sanctuaries and taking tours of the federal forest lands. You can just as easily visit the eco-friendly sites as a daytrip or on a day when the weather prevents you from sunbathing or surfing. Even though the town of Troncones is fairly small, the area is huge in terms of possibilities.
Of course, having a comfortable place to come home to after your day’s adventures are through is also important. Casa de la Sirena offers the perfect touch of luxury to put a finish to each day—and because we subscribe to the same eco-conscious outlook that’s prevalent everywhere here, you can rest assured that we are doing our part to ensure that Troncones remains a Mexican vacation destination that will be sustained for decades to come.
