Mexico Beach Weddings: Personal and Completely Custom at a Fraction of the Cost!

These days, the average wedding costs upwards of $20,000. In fact, with the exception of a house, cars, and your childrens’ college educations, your wedding represents one of the most important purchases you will ever make as a couple. From finding that perfect dress to tracking down a venue, caterer, and band, there’s quite a bit of time involved, as well. Most brides and grooms spend up to a year planning their big day — and, by comparison, just a few months devising the perfect honeymoon to go along with it.

Mexico beach weddings aren’t usually figured in those projections. Although destination weddings have been growing in popularity in recent years, most couples assume the costs and hassles outweigh the benefits.

We’re here to tell you that simply isn’t true. If you’ve always had your heart set on a sunset wedding on the beach, or if aren’t sure what you want but you know the traditional formal ceremony isn’t your style, a beach wedding in Troncones might be your perfect fit. And with flexible accommodations and pricing schedules well below the wedding average, you’d be surprised how easy it is to tailor a wedding to suit exactly what you and your future spouse want.

Accommodations: Casa de la Sirena is equipped to handle as few as 2 guests or as many as 75. So whether you envision a private ceremony with your closest friends or a larger family gathering with everyone staying together in one place, we have the accommodations to suit you. Our wedding packages are very affordable regardless of how much (or how little) space you need.

Spa Amenities: One of the unique features we offer is a range of spa and relaxation amenities that help brides prepare for their weddings. From a yoga studio you can rent for your entire bridal party to massages, manicures, and pedicures, we know what it takes to make you feel pampered and glowing for your big day.

Ceremony and Dining Options: Through the years, we’ve seen just about every type of wedding there is — and we’re prepared to handle it all. We offer chef and catering services for those hoping to enjoy a more traditional reception, and you can also book a table at a local restaurant to enjoy a night out with the wedding party. You can have a formal ceremony in our garden patio, or enjoy the sights and sounds of the beach as you say your “I do.”

Coordination Services: We’re also equipped to provide as much (or as little) support as you need as you set about making your plans. Managing all the details of a Mexican villa ceremony (such as shipping your formal wear, coordinating the arrivals and departures of a large party, finding someone to perform the service, and getting a marriage license in Mexico) can be a little bit overwhelming…and that’s the last thing you want out of a beach wedding. We can answer your questions and provide concierge services to make everything easy.

The Complete Honeymoon Experience

Of course, we can’t skip one of the most important aspects of having a Mexico beach wedding: the honeymoon. This is where the real savings opportunities come in. After all, if you’re already planning a tropical getaway to celebrate your marriage, why not combine wedding and honeymoon all in one? The Troncones region has such a diverse range of activities that it’s easy to leave your guests to their own devices as you explore Mexico your way. And because you’re already here and the transportation and accommodations have been taken care of, you have more time to spend with your loved ones and to enjoy everything a Mexico beach villa has to offer.

Relaxation and Spa Features for Your Troncones Beach Wedding

Private Family Beach WeddingThe setting here in Troncones is perfect for a Mexico beach wedding. From the crashing waves and private stretches of white sand to the modern facilities for dining, music, and wedding preparations, you’ll find everything you need to create your perfect day. As pictures of the sunset will attest, you can’t find a more perfect place to say “I do.”

Because we’ve seen so many happy couples make a lifelong commitment here on our shores, we’ve gotten to know a little bit about what makes a bride have a truly exceptional experience. So much more than the cake or the food or even the dress, we know that the right frame of mind is the most important ingredient. When you’re relaxed, calm, and excited about your big day, it’s almost impossible for anything to go wrong.

Relaxing Before the Wedding

One of the reasons a Mexico vacation villa provides such an ideal space for getting married is that it’s so easy to unwind here. From the moment you arrive, you’ll find plenty of opportunities for some much-needed rest and relaxation. There are comfortable accommodations with views of the ocean as well as gardens, beaches, and lounging areas awaiting you, and you’re invited to take it all in at your own pace.

You can also enjoy some downtime courtesy of our well-equipped staff. In the days leading up to a wedding, most brides are hammering out catering details, finalizing guest lists, and wondering if everything will come off without a hitch. Here at your private Mexico wedding resort, these worries disappear with the morning tide. From concierge services for your guests to full-service catering and wedding planning, you can begin your honeymoon vacation well before the wedding starts.

Spas and Serenity

Of course, no wedding preparations are complete without some pampering, as well. That’s why Casa de la Sirena offers a full range of spa services for the bride and bridal party. You can get manicures, pedicures, and a massage to help relax your mind and beautify your body. We also offer yoga facilities that you can book in advance for large groups.

Bridal parties can be as large as several dozen people or as small as you and a few close friends and family members—our facilities remain available for you in your time of need. And because up to 75 guests can be booked at one time, you can enjoy having everyone available to support you as you get ready to walk down the aisle…or sandy beach.

Rest assured that Casa de la Sirena has all the amenities you’ll need to prepare for your wedding. As is the case with everything about this part of Mexico, relaxation and pampering are always the order of the day.

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

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.

Corporate Incentives and Retreats in Ixtapa, Mexico

Casa de la Sirena beach resort near Ixtapa MexicoFor a corporate event that will have your employees scrambling to succeed, choose an Ixtapa beach resort as your destination of choice. Whether you want to allow your team to relax and celebrate over exotic drinks on the beach, or if you plan to hold meetings and brainstorm without the stress of the everyday corporate world all around you, a Mexico vacation villa will bring your team together in ways you’ve never imagined.

Mexican Beach Rentals: Not Just for Families

Corporate rewards have long been used as an incentive for individual and team success. From boosting sales and increasing productivity to rewarding excellence and creating a team-building atmosphere, there is much to be said for stepping outside the office — and the box — to take your business to the next level.

Destination corporate events are even more popular when you start to consider locations in Mexico. The warm sand of the pure, white beaches and the waves crashing against the shore are about as far away from the boardroom as you can get — and in many cases, that’s exactly what your business needs.

Why Corporate Travel Works as an Incentive

Giving an employee a cash bonus is a lot like giving a gift card to the grocery store as a birthday present. In nine cases out of ten, the recipient will use the funds for something more functional than fun. The responsible adults inside all of us have a hard time “rewarding” ourselves even after months of hard work and dedication, and cash bonuses often make their way into savings accounts, children’s dentist bills, or to put a down payment on a new car.

While there’s nothing wrong with these types of grown-up behaviors, a real reward is one that forces your employees to kick back, relax, and enjoy the fruits of their labors. You’ll soon find that your workers will perform faster and better in anticipation of the upcoming trip, and that the sense of unity between them (both in the days leading up to the vacation as well as the months afterword) is stronger than ever before.

Why Corporate Travel Works for Team Building

When you bring a group of sharp and savvy top performers together under one tropical thatch roof, the results can be amazing. From sharing strategies and best practices to becoming more personally invested in the business, an international corporate experience brings people together for the long haul.

And when you choose a Mexican vacation villa like Casa de la Sirena as your destination of choice, you’ll find that there are even more benefits to enjoy. That’s because we offer your team the chance to stay connected and unplug at the same time. With WiFi in most of the rooms and villas, you can always check your email or teleconference with your home office. However, if team focus is the order of the day, you can just as easily flip off the phones, pull up a few lounge chairs, and put your attention exactly where it needs to be.

Why Choose Ixtapa or Troncones Vacation Rentals?

The west coast of Mexico is an ideal place to hold your next corporate getaway. The Troncones region, which is located north of Ixtapa, allows you to get the same great climate and scenery of that tourist hotspot, but in a much lower-key resort area that makes it easy to continue working as a team. Travel to and from the larger cities is made easy with taxi and min-bus service, but you can just as easily unplug and unwind in a paradise equipped with all the sun, sports, and surf you need to have a great time.

Casa de la Sirena specializes in large groups and corporate events, and we can make planning your next corporate event a tropical breeze. From catering and bartending services for on-site meetings to a huge list of activities for those who just want a good time, we are excited to welcome companies of all sizes.

Holidays in the Tropics – The Best It Can Get!

This year, imagine Thanksgiving or Christmas vacation in an oceanfront Mexican beach villa! Whether you are escaping to the joyous culmination of all those plans for the perfect tropical holiday family reunion, or have made a last minute decision to take some “couples” quality time, getting away for the holidays is so much more than a chance to give yourself an incredible gift — in a place like Mexico, where sun, sand, and surf await every month out of the year, it’s also a way to recharge your life and to experience another culture’s holiday traditions.

Although the Thanksgiving holiday is only observed in the United States, you’ll find that the Christmas holiday gears up early in Mexico bringing with it a joyous thanksgiving for life. And you can enjoy a seasonal retreat that’s as festive as it is relaxing. Smiling faces, village fiestas, friendly people and the culture steeped in tradition, Christmas in Mexico is simply enchanting.

The Christmas season is a festive time of the year for Mexicans. Parties are common, and food and drink flow in abundance. Many local festivals take place, and you can participate as much or as little as you want. In most locations, you can expect the festivities to really start gearing up in mid-December and continue all the way into January.

The scenery around the holidays is also an enjoyable sight. Although you won’t find the traditional evergreens favored in the United States, there are plenty of lights, explosions of color, and decorations to keep your holiday spirit firmly intact. Most Mexican residents are Catholic, so many of the more somber traditions are present, too, including Mass and religious festivals that put a heavy focus on the true meaning of Christmas.

Winter Weather at Your Mexico Beach Villa

One of the best reasons to spend your holiday in Mexico is the weather. A far cry from snow and freezing temperatures, Troncones and the surrounding areas of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo enjoy an average temperature between 70 and 88 degrees in the months of November and December, with warm, balmy breezes to take all your cares away. By this time, the rainy season has already passed, so you’ll get to enjoy sun and sand almost every day out of the week. By late November, most of the hurricane worries have passed, as well, so you get to take advantage of Mexican weather at its best.

What to Expect During Your Stay

If you plan on remaining here through the Christmas holiday, expect the shopping and tourist districts to pick up at a frantic pace! Liked everywhere, people are rushed to buy gifts for friends and loved ones. Many government facilities close to allow the workers to enjoy time with their families. It’s a great time for “people watching.”

Give the Gift of Travel

One of the best things about spending Christmas in Mexico is that you can bring your whole family along with you! Troncones vacation villas make it easy to invite dozens of guests, and you can all stay in the same luxury accommodations and enjoy the holiday as a group. There is perhaps no holiday gift quite as great as opportunities to surf, sunbathe, and explore Mexico together. The Casa de la Sirena beachfront compound in the beautiful village of Troncones offers the opportunity for you to rent your own private Mexican villa even if there are only two of you (or 20!).

Of course, if you’re using holiday travel to get away from the family, we can help with that, too. Private villas make it easy to enjoy your time away with all the rest and relaxation you need to start the new year afresh!

This photo, “Becky’s Mermaid” is so special to me.  Doug and Becky Stow stayed with us last year.  Doug has been a fabulous painter for lots of years and this was Becky’s FIRST PAINTING!!!

And, she gave it to me!!!  She has inspired me and I am hoping to return to my painting lessons when we get back to the beach.
We  have been busily preparing for high season.  We are doing allot of upgrades, painting, re-upholstering and generally just making the private villa and 2 story bungalows “new” again.     It is beautiful now and will be even more so by the 1st of November when it is complete.
GARDEN TIME!  Yes, we are hoping for a great garden this year to accompany our chives, basil, chilis, mangoes, papayas and limons.   We have planted tomatos, squash, warm weather spinach, rosemary and red bell peppers hoping that our love of gardening and attention to the plants surpasses the challenge of the salt air that comes with being right on the ocean.  If anyone has any tips, we would love it if you would share!
We are grateful that the hurricane by passed us and Jessica and Jarrod’s sunset beachfront wedding and celebration was perfect!   Destination weddings in Mexico need not be expensive or difficult.  Just let us help!
Our “cast of regular” Mexican surfer dudes were back for their annual trip (actually, back twice) and made a great Mexico Troncones surfing video available for view on our website.  Thank you to Mike and the guys at Swellmagnet.com.
We still  have a cancellation for the private villa  over Thanksgiving week.  Make us an offer!  If you have never visited us before, this is a perfect opportunity for a romantic get-a-way or a last minute family escape.  We’ll leave the lights on!
