Mexico’s Best-Kept Secret: The Tranquil Troncones Beach Resort

June 22nd, 2011

Troncones Mexico villa suiteMexican beach villas have always been one of those vacations that many people dream of, but few see through to the end. That’s because there are any number of imagined obstacles in the way. Whether you think the price isn’t right or if you imagine it’s the type of place where only the young and adventurous have fun, we’re here to let you know that Mexico can be quiet, relaxing, and friendly on your wallet.

When you choose a beach resort in Troncones, you can set your own pace and create your own itinerary—and you can do it for much less than you probably expect.

Troncones Vacation Villas: A World Apart

Troncones is a small fishing community located about 20 miles north of the Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo region. Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are famous as a hotspot for vacationers from all over the world, and many of the images and stereotypes about Mexico have their roots here.

That’s not to say that these are bad places to visit. On the contrary, Zihuatanejo is rich with history and culture, and many people find that there is no better place to get a glimpse of historic Mexico. Ixtapa, on the other hand, is a more upscale region where you’ll find five-star accommodations, high-end shopping, and the chance to enjoy Mexico in style. And in both regions, you’ll find the kind of nightlife that makes this area so famous. For the young and young at heart, you can enjoy drinks, dancing, and staying up until dawn. Most of the touristy areas expect this kind of activity, so many of the venues cater to foreigners and provide a safe retreat for all ages.

However, if something a little bit lower-key is more your style, we encourage you to take the short journey (offered regularly via mini-bus and taxi service) north to Troncones. Here you’ll find the other side of a Mexico vacation getaway: hammocks, tropical drinks, and the obligatory surf, sun, and sand.

Things to See and Do in Troncones

Because the pace is a little bit slower here in Troncones, you can fit as much (or as little) activity into your Mexico beach vacation as you’d like. Many of our guests come equipped with nothing more than a stack of books and a swimming suit, while others seek more adventure. At Casa de la Sirena, we’re equipped to handle both ends of the spectrum. You’ll find:

  • Fully Equipped Vacation Villas: Our villas, mini-villas, and bungalows are great accommodations for families and groups of all sizes. Offering kitchenettes, private views, and more, you can just as easily host a small gathering over the grill as spend a quiet evening with the one you love.
  • Private Beach Setting: Casa de la Sirena is located on a private, three-mile strip of beach that offers that perfect touch of tropical isolation. From a yoga studio designed to accommodate large parties to your own private spot in the sand, we make it easy to unwind, relax, and take in the sights at your own pace.
  • Water and Eco-Tour Activities: Troncones is a hotspot for surfers and fishing opportunities, both of which provide plenty of activity for those who want to get on the water. Kayak tours also allow you to see the sights up close and personal, and those with a penchant for animal life can go bird watching and whale watching.
  • On Site Luxury Services: One of the best ways to enjoy a private retreat is with spa services like manicures, pedicures, and massage—especially if you’re considering Troncones as a wedding destination.

Of course, one of the reasons so many people keep coming back to our Troncones beach resort is because of the ambiance and people of the local town, which has a population of just around 500 residents. Small, unique restaurants cater to the select tourist crowd, and many of the features here are designed to keep you entertained on a budget. One of Mexico’s best-kept secrets, Troncones is the beachfront vacationing at its best.
