Why Choose Beach Weddings and Receptions in Zihuatanejo, Mexico

Destination weddings, which allow you and your guests to take in the local sights and sounds for your big day, are a hot trend in the marriage market right now. Part honeymoon and part traditional ceremony, these types of weddings are a great way to unite family and friends in a location you might not otherwise get to enjoy together. Right now Mexico beach weddings are one of the top choices for destination weddings in the tropics.

Whether you’ve always dreamed of getting married against a beachfront sunset, or if you have dreams of your own private Mexico vacation villa as a honeymoon destination, a wedding in the Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa region is an event you and your guests will never forget. Here are just a few of the benefits to a destination wedding in an area like ours:

    Get the Complete Package: These days, planning a wedding can take up to a year of your time, including consultations, shopping, cake tastings, and all the stress that comes with organizing an event with hundreds of guests. A Mexico beach wedding is designed to do the exact opposite—with everything from catering and spa services right here, all you have to do is show up and spend your time relaxing on the beach. Let us take care of the rest.

    Keep Things Select: When you plan a tropical destination wedding, your guest list becomes a whole lot easier to make. Almost everyone understands that a wedding ceremony like this is meant to be small and private, usually held just for a handful of close friends and family members. Having a ceremony here means you can avoid all the complications of extended relatives and plus one invitations.

    Save Money: It might seem counter-intuitive, but hosting your nuptials in this part of Mexico can actually save you money on the wedding plans. In addition to a smaller guest list, you’ll find that accommodations (even for large parties) are relatively low-cost. And because you can find a site like ours, where the small town setting and beachfront community provide low-key entertainment every day of the week, additional expenses can be kept to a minimum. In most cases, family and friends expect to cover their own airfare, as well, which can help keep your wedding budget in check.

    A Mexico Honeymoon Villa Awaits: Of course, one of the best reasons to have a wedding in this region is that you are already in place for the honeymoon of your dreams. From high-end shopping and spa services in Ixtapa to a quiet beach setting right here in Troncones, you’ve already set the scene for a honeymoon as full of adventure or solitude as you want. You can even plan on staying a few days (or weeks) after your family has departed for some much-needed alone time.

Mexico Beach Weddings the Casa de la Sirena Way

Casa de la Sirena is the perfect place to have your Mexico beach wedding. Because we can accommodate parties of up to 75 (and as few as just you and your spouse-to-be), you can customize a wedding package as unique as you are.

For a destination wedding in one of the best locations in the world, look no further than the Troncones and Zihuatanejo region. We have the beauty, the amenities, and the ambiance…all you need to bring is the bride!

Zihuatanejo Resorts: Safe and Fun for the Whole Family

Horseback riding near Zihuatanejo MexicoThese days, Mexico vacation rentals are a source of debate when it comes to safety and travel. Media and government reports tend to put the focus on the worst parts of Mexico’s troubles.

However, as many residents, expats, and regular visitors will tell you, a vacation to Mexico is rarely dangerous. By avoiding high-conflict inner cities and enjoying a beachfront villa like those you’ll find in Troncones, you’ll find no more danger than what you would expect on a trip to any overseas location.

Why Troncones is a Good Fit for the Whole Family

The town of Troncones is a small, undeveloped beach community located 20 miles north of the Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo region. Home to a population of less than 1,000 (many of whom are resort and Mexico villa rental owners), this is the kind of place where you’ll find free-roaming chickens, community events, and a hammock in almost every single yard. A fishing town for centuries, you’ll feel like you stepped back in time—to an era when family and friends worked hard to build a true community lifestyle.

The cities of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo, by contrast, boast a population just over 100,000. And even with the larger number of residents, these towns are fairly small by Mexican standards. Most of the high-rise hotels and beachfront resorts are built in areas of affluence, where natural beauty and city amenities co-exist. And because regular bus and taxi service between the larger cities and Troncones are always running, it’s easy to stay connected.

This is why we established our Mexico vacation villas in Troncones. You can bring the whole family to enjoy a low-key vacation that still offers plenty of activities, from surfing and horseback riding to birdwatching and playing on the beach. Children of all ages are welcome here, and many kids find that watching sea turtles hatch and make their way to the ocean is even better than a visit to a traditional theme park!

Safety in Coastal Mexico

This part of Mexico is one of the safest areas you can travel in the entire country. Known as an ideal tropical destination for vacationers from all over the world, the towns rely heavily on the tourist trade. Because of this, city developers and leaders have always put a focus on traveler safety. You’ll find that the infrastructure is well-suited for the modern traveler, with everything from Internet connections in your private villa to updated hospital facilities in Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo that are able to accommodate almost every type of medical emergency.

As is the case with any travel to Mexico, however, precautions should always be taken. Don’t drink the water out of the tap, be sure and wash all your produce with bottled water before you eat it, avoid traveling after dark, and stay close to the tourist centers. For more information on travel safety, visit the U.S. Department of State website on travel to Mexico.

If you have any questions or concerns about traveling to your Mexico vacation villa, we encourage you to contact us directly. We know that travel safety is an important factor in your decision to come here, and we will do our best to put you in touch with the right resources to make your trip as perfect and safe as you want it to be!

Beyond Sunbathing: Extreme Sports in Coastal Mexico

Surfing and other extreme sports in Troncones MexicoThe sleepy beach town of Troncones, which is located about a half hour’s drive north of Zihuatanejo beach resorts and Ixtapa vacation rentals, might not be the first place you think of for big adventure and even bigger adrenaline. After all, pictures here capture happy couples getting married in the sunset, tropical drinks being sipped on a hammock, and the serene crash of the waves on shore.

However, don’t be deceived by the low-key atmosphere you find here. If action and adventure are what you’re after, extreme sports in Troncones offer more than enough opportunities to make your vacation more than just another day at the beach.

Mexico Beach Resorts: The Perfect Extreme Sports Setting

The area around Troncones is ideal for an active lifestyle. In and around the beach town itself, you’ll find opportunities to hike, bike, horseback ride, and surf. Surfing in Mexico is one of the biggest draws for those willing to take on a few more hazards than the average tourist.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that surfing is all you’ll have to do. Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo, two larger tourist destinations located nearby, are hotspots for sports enthusiasts. Depending on your interests and how much time you have to spend on your vacation, you’ll find:

  • Scuba Diving: More than 30 popular diving sites and tours can be found along this part of the Mexican coast. All skills levels are invited, from first-time divers to those who’ve been under the water for years. Snorkeling is also a favorite pastime here.
  • Kayak Tours: Taking you into the ocean and along hidden routes to explore coves and caves, there is no better way to view the Mexico waters than by kayak.
  • Rappel and Caving Excursions: The topography of the coastal areas is really quite varied. In addition to the white sandy beaches and coastline, there are many different peaks that take extreme sports to the next level. Whether you want to rappel down a mountain cliff or explore a cave by harness, there are adventures in store for you here.
  • Skydiving and Ziplines: Although there are only a few facilities in the area that offer trustworthy airborne excursions, these options certainly provide a unique way to view the landscape. If you’ve never been skydiving before, a zipline is a nice way to ease into the sport.
  • Golf: Maybe it’s not quite as extreme as you were hoping for, but golf is one of the more popular sports in this part of Mexico. Ixtapa has two quality courses that allow you to rent all the equipment you’ll need.
  • Surfing: Enough can’t be said about the surfing in Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo, and Troncones. Almost every month out of the year finds big waves in select locations known in surfing communities worldwide. As a smaller, beach-oriented community, Troncones is particularly well-known for its surfing features.

A Mexico vacation villa doesn’t have to be all about rest and relaxation. Whether you want to spend a few days exploring the extreme sport options while you’re here, or if high-adrenaline adventure is your goal every day, you’ll find plenty to keep you occupied. And because you can explore it all from your Troncones villa, it’s easy to ensure that everyone has a great time!

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!

Coastal Mexico Family Reunions

Families enjoy a reunion on the beach in Troncones Mexico
Mexican beach rentals are so much more than a vacation getaway. When you invite the whole family to join in, you can create lasting memories as vivid as a Mexican sunset.

These days, travel costs and busy schedules tend to prevent families from getting together as often as they’d like. Young twenty-something professionals often move off to big cities to build their careers, and vacation time for them is at a premium. Newly married couples might have more than enough on their plates to make it home for every holiday out of the year. And as families get larger and more spread out, finding a time when everyone can get together is virtually impossible.

But there’s something almost magical about a Mexico vacation villa. In a phenomenon that’s fairly common in these parts, you’ll find that a reservation at your own private villa on the beach will bring together your loved ones faster than you can say family reunion.

Looking Beyond a Traditional Zihuatanejo Resort

Mexico vacation rentals work well for a family reunion because of their accessibility and variety. Offering a central location that family members can access from virtually any airport in the world, a Mexico-based getaway means that everyone can create a travel itinerary that works best for them.

Mexico is also one of those places that appeals to all types of personalities and ages. Whether you host a large, catered dinner every night or plan a low-key beachfront gathering where everyone does their own thing, you never have to worry about everyone finding something to do. From surfing and fishing to yoga and nights out on the town, life here is as active as you want it to be.

A location like a Troncones resort is also ideal because it is just a step away from the larger cities. Zihuatanejo is known as a great tourist destination, full of history and beach activities. Ixtapa, also located nearby, offers a more active party lifestyle, ideal for the young vacationers in your family. And Troncones itself has a wide array of eco-tours, water activities, and a small, beach town atmosphere few people can resist. Because transportation to and from these locations is easy, you can host your family reunion in Troncones and still allow everyone to have the vacation of their dreams.

Finding Accommodations for a Large Party

Destination family reunions work best when you can find accommodations that fit the entire family. Having everyone nearby not only makes it easier to plan activities, but you can ensure that everyone is safe and having a good time. That’s why you need a Mexico beachfront rental that’s flexible and designed for large parties. Here at Casa de la Sirena, we specialize in an array of villa types. Choose from:

  • Private Villas: Featuring three king suites with a private pool and full kitchen
  • Two-Story Bungalows: Featuring a queen suite and kitchenette
  • Mini Villas: Featuring a king suite and kitchenette

Casa de la Sirena can accommodate up to 75 guests at parties and about 20 guests at a time in the villas/bungalows when reservations are made well in advance. Off-season times are ideal for these kinds of family retreats because it is easier to reserve a block of villas and rooms to keep everyone together.

Troncones vacation rentals take a family reunion and boost it to the next level. Whether you want to bring your adult children and their families together for a weekend away, or if you’re planning a larger event to reconnect with cousins and extended relatives all over the world, Mexico is the answer you’ve been looking for. No one can resist the sun, surf, and sand — and being near family makes the picture perfect.

Mexico Vacation Rentals: The Graduation Gift of a Lifetime

Travel package gifts are a common theme for high school and college graduates. There is something so liberating about finally getting that diploma and walking across the stage — it is a rite of passage, a shift from one chapter in life to the next, and the chance to celebrate years of hard work.

Mexico beachfront rentals are a great way to offer the new graduate in your life a chance to relax and prepare for the adventures that await them. And when you add group packages and great on-site features like those you’ll find at Casa de la Sirena, the result is a safe, fun-filled getaway that your graduate will never forget.

Why Give a Graduation Trip?

Traditionally, those few months after graduation are the only ones in which young adults have the ultimate freedom. Without a job, graduate school, mortgages, bills, or a family of their own demanding their time, new graduates are free to explore the world and their place in it.

Mexico makes a great graduation destination because of its variety of features and its accessibility from the United States. In addition to beaches, surfing, and a young and vibrant nightlife, you’ll find a wealth of educational opportunities, as well. From local arts and culture to unique ecological and archaeological sites, your graduate can choose between a relaxing getaway with friends or the chance to learn more about this unique part of the world.

Why Choose Troncones Vacation Rentals?

Troncones is a beach community located about half an hour north of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo on the west coast of Mexico. Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are known as hotspots for graduates and young vacationers, since so much of the area is dedicated to shopping, fine dining, an active nightlife and outdoor activities. And while a mini-bus trip down to Zihuatanejo is always great for an evening or two, the relative quiet and slow pace of Troncones makes for an ideal destination for those who want safety and entertainment all wrapped in one neat, sun-soaked package.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that this Troncones beach resort is slow. In fact, there is more than enough here to keep your graduate and his or her friends entertained for weeks. In addition to world-class surfing and pristine stretches of beach, you’ll find opportunities to snorkel, kayak, mountain bike, go horseback riding, and even enjoy whale watching. And that’s just outside! In a resort setting like Casa de la Sirena, there are also numerous chances to enjoy yoga, sunset meals, and daily massages.

And because Troncones isn’t yet considered a hotspot for tourists, everything here remains low-key. The people are friendly, the restaurants cater to both locals and tourists, and the focus is on enjoying a true beach community.

Mexican Beach Rentals: Safety and Accessibility

One of the best reasons to choose Troncones as the Mexico beach resort for your new graduate is the safe atmosphere and accessibility. Regular taxi and mini-bus service makes getting to and from the nearby Ixtapa region easy, and most of the resorts here offer Internet service and modern telephone services to always stay connected. Medical facilities in nearby Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are also some of the best you’ll find in the country.

Of course, there’s also the peace of mind that comes from group travel, which is why a Mexico vacation villa, accommodating up to 20 guests, is perfect for a graduation gift. Encourage your new graduate to travel with family members or friends, knowing that everyone will go to sleep in their shared private retreat each night.

Look beyond gift cards, electronics, and money when you’re giving graduation gifts this year. Encourage the new graduate in your life to spread some wings and explore a new culture and the fresh scent of independence. Mexico beach vacation rentals are unique and unforgettable!

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!
