Vacation in Beachfront Barefoot Elegance!
*see below for 2011 Troncones calendar offer!
Summertime in Troncones is quickly approaching. It is the time of year when we welcome our surfer crowd and anxiously await photos from our many guests that choose us to spend family re-unions, yoga retreats, honeymoons and have their weddings at the compound.
Beachfront Weddings – The Sirena compound is a fabulous venue for destination weddings. Whether you choose a simple barefoot on the beach ceremony or a full out formal affair, Casa de la Sirena is the perfect setting for your family and bridal party. Since we do not charge a facility’s fee, it is an affordable alternative to other wedding sites. Lots of our brides have confided that for what they would have paid for the ceremony and reception facilities, they could host family and friends at the Sirena compound for a week! Talk about off to a happy start!
Family Re-Unions are one of our favorite specialty groups. The compound was designed for privacy even in a large group. It has plenty of meeting and gathering places, yet everyone has their own “private island” suite/villa. 2 pools, private beach palapas, lots of lounge chairs and a swim up bar in the main pool offer fun in the sun for everyone.
Yoga Retreats ……the word is out. What a perfect setting for a group. The accommodations are gorgeous and the platform is perfectly shaded by large palm trees. And, when you consider the privacy designed into the compound, how could there be a better location?? And, though restaurants and bars are within easy walking distance, there are none onsite (although we can arrange for a cook) so there is no late night “hooting and hollering” J
Surfing is world re-known in our area. Options include Troncones Point, Manzanillo Point, La Salidita and The Ranch.
Holidays at Casa de la Sirena are the best! Whether you bring all your family , opt for a romantic get-a-way or run away with friends, Christmas in Mexico is so special , easy and stress free. One of our favorite recipes….. Start with some sunshine, stir in the melody of the ocean and long walks on the beach. Add homemade guacamole and chips followed by chili rellanos or garlic shrimp. Head up the beach for a nightcap and plan for more sunshine tomorrow. Repeat.
The Scoop at the Sirena Compound – Maria, Humberto, Veronica and Antonio are all doing well. Humberto just started working again after an emergency appendectomy on March 25th. His smile says volumes about how he is feeling. The guys are working on cleaning and re-grouting both pools. They are finished with the villa’s private pool and are about a day away from finishing the big pool. Veronica has accepted our nagging and is commuting to Zihuatanejo once a week for computer classes. Antonio’s baby grows about 2 inches a day….hard to believe she is almost one year old. And, Maria took her family on vacation to Acapulco! We are so proud of her. It is the 1st actual vacation she has ever had. The photo is of her and her youngest 2 there….on vacation! She thought the city was too big and noisy (imagine that if you are from Troncones) and that the food was “funny”. Other than that, I think she had a good time!
Calendar – YEA! There is a beautiful full color wall calendar of beach and village life being produced right now. We have some amazingly talented residents and guests that have shared some beautiful photographs. All profits go to a great cause, building a gazebo in the new town zocolo (town square).
