Casa de la Sirena Simplifies Mexico Beach Weddings

Of course, once you’ve decided where you intend to have your Mexican beach wedding, the real work begins. In addition to your guest list and travel arrangements, you will need to consider:

  • Ceremony location and time
  • Attire
  • Cuisine (traditional fare vs. catered elegance)
  • Floral arrangements
  • Music
  • Photography
  • Honeymoon plans

(Note: All civil legal marriages performed in Mexico can be validated in the United States, making the legal issues easy to navigate.)

Mexico Beach Weddings Made Easy

Because Casa de la Sirena specializes in group events and weddings, we can easily help you arrange all these details—and more. Whether you want to enjoy a private ceremony for two or throw a more elaborate affair that brings the whole family together, we can accommodate up to 75 guests and arrange for most of the wedding details.

And because we’re located on the west coast in the beachside community of Troncones (less than an hour from Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo), you get all of these luxuries with the appeal of a more relaxed setting. We make it easy for you to ride off into the sunset via horseback with your new spouse, only to awaken the next day to nature adventures, a quiet hammock for two, or a sojourn into the nearby metropolitan center for museums and shopping.

Find a 5-Star Zihuatanejo Resort at 3-Star Prices

Let’s face it — when anyone plans a trip to a Mexican vacation villa, the ultimate goal is luxury. No matter how much fun it might be to plan activities like surfing, parasailing, or nature tours, just about everyone wants to do them in a setting that is extravagant and comfortable. The best memories of time spent in Mexico almost always include white stretches of sandy beach, great food, and even better service.

For some people, the only way to get this kind of experience is to pay for it. Five-star Zihuatanejo resorts cater to a clientele used to getting what they want and enjoying every minute of it. From guest features like room service, on-site spas, and a swimming pool to beachfront views and increased privacy, the amenities in a five-star resort are always top-notch. And because you’re right in the heart of the Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa region, you have quick and easy access to all the tourist destinations in this incredible Mexican vacation destination.

Unfortunately, with high prices that are simply unreachable for many families, the five-star dream doesn’t always seem like a possibility. Before you settle for less, however, we encourage you to consider a great alternative to pricey Zihuatanejo accommodations.

How to Book Luxury Mexico Travel on a Budget

Here at Casa de la Sirena, we’re happy to tell you that there is a way to enjoy all the upscale features of a five-star Zihuatanejo resort at about half the price.

We are situated in the town of Troncones, which is located about 40 minutes (by car, taxi, or bus) from Zihuatanejo. Close enough so that you can enjoy all the metropolitan center has to offer, but with a quiet and serene beachfront setting, Troncones is a local secret that is quickly catching on.

In a true Mexican beach resort tradition, we also boast all of those luxury features that come with a large price tag in Zihuatanejo. Private villas with their own pools, kitchen areas, and swim-up bars are just part of what we offer. Most of the resort rooms and private villas also come with multiple bedrooms, wi-fi options, and private beach access. All the traditional amenities are part of this package, too, from daily maid services to the help of our knowledgeable and friendly staff. We also boast on-site spa services as well as a yoga complex on the beach — both of which are favorites among bridal parties and corporate incentive packages.

The best part about all this is that it comes at a fraction of the cost of what you’ll find just 40 minutes away in Zihuatanejo. And while you won’t find the vibrant city life in the background, you will find pristine stretches of beach and plenty of local activities like birdwatching, whale watching, fishing, and water sports.

Not everyone can afford a five-star Mexico vacation, and that’s okay with us. We’ll provide everything you’re looking for in a luxury vacation, and we’ll do it for less. And, if you’re like most of our guests, you’ll come back year after year, enjoying all that the Troncones-Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa region has to offer.

Enjoy Ultimate Privacy by Booking the Entire Beachfront Resort in Troncones

Casa de la Sirena is one of the most unique Mexico vacation resorts you’ll find along the western coast of the country. Because of our size and location, we are able to offer more privacy than you’ll find in many other resort settings. At the same time, we still provide the right touch of luxury so that your vacation never feels like anything other than complete and utter tropical bliss. Our relatively small size also means that you can enjoy the ultimate getaway for 5, 50, or even 75 guests — and all without having to share the resort with anyone.

Mexico Beach Vacation: Size Matters

Many Mexican beach resorts are large, elaborate hotels with enough accommodations to house hundreds of guests. Others are small and select, more like traditional bed & breakfast locations than a resort in the true sense of the word. Both of these types of destinations have their uses. After all, if you want a more active nightlife, it’s good to be near people and the clubs and restaurants that almost always accompany a larger resort setting. And if you want some quiet time for two, a quaint B&B is a great way to enjoy some private time on your own terms.

Casa de la Sirena is a combination of both a larger resort and a more intimate inn. We work hard to build a very inviting and private setting. And because of our low prices, you can actually book the whole resort for a smaller party — and do it without breaking the bank.

The Ultimate Mexican Resort Setting: Location, Location, Location

When compared to the setting in Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo, the Troncones backdrop is low-key and has a much stronger focus on the beach, nature, and the local fishing village. Casa de la Sirena has the added advantage of being set a little way off the beaten track, which means our private beach becomes yours the moment you book your Mexico vacation getaway.

An ideal venue for Mexico beach weddings, wedding vow renewals, honeymoons, family reunions, and corporate retreats, we make it easy for you to enjoy as much or as little of the beach as you want. You can reserve a private villa, our beachfront yoga complex, or you can even reserve the entire Mexico beachfront resort for your next function.

And even if you don’t want to reserve the whole resort, you can still rest assured that you’ll have the privacy you need for your vacation getaway. Many of our villas come with their own little patch of beachfront real estate, and the private pools, gardens, and roof patios make it easy to enjoy being with those you love in one of the most vibrant and exotic locations in the world.

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!

Mexico Resort Options: Yoga-Mind-Body Wellness

Poolside at Mexico beach rentalThere are several different ways to enjoy a Mexico vacation rental. For some visitors, it represents the chance to explore the active sporting lifestyle of surfing, mountain biking, and kayaking. For others, it’s a chance to become a beach bum, soaking in the sun and tropical climate that makes every day such a delight. Another growing trend, especially in quiet beachside resorts like Casa de la Sirena, is to use the natural environment as a way to tap into whole body wellness.

Mexico Beach Rentals: The Place is Right

Troncones, the home of Casa de la Sirena, is one of the most perfect settings in the world for a spiritual retreat. With the Sierra Madre Mountains on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other, you’ll find clean air, quiet, and solitude everywhere you turn. You can take advantage of a morning meditation session or participate in sunset yoga. Explore the local ecology by day, or even stay up to listen to the waves and watch the stars.

Because Troncones is situated to the north of the larger tourist cities of Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa, you never have to worry about city sounds or pollution. Life here is simple and fresh, and this quality of life is evident during every minute of your stay here.

Casa de la Sirena Facilities

Here at Casa de la Sirena, we know how important it is to have facilities that offer everything you need in one easy location. That’s why we work so hard to maintain our outdoor yoga studio. Available for private group rental, we encourage bridal parties, family gatherings, and corporate retreats to come equipped with their yoga mats and a qualified instructor. There is no better way to experience the tranquility of this part of the world than by attuning to nature and to your body.

Activities for the Holistic Traveler

The beach villas you’ll find here in Troncones are an ideal starting place for even more exploration of spiritual and tranquil coastal Mexico. Depending on your goals while you are here, you can tap into:

  • Massage and bodywork
  • Spa services
  • Manicures/Pedicures
  • Whale watching
  • Horseback riding
  • Nature hiking trails
  • Local arts exhibits
  • Birdwatching
  • Annual guitar festival
  • Cove and tidal pool explorations

Of course, our guests also tell us that some of their favorite activities are finding a quiet spot on a hammock with a journal or sketchbook in hand. Documenting your thoughts and channeling the local atmosphere into your art are among the best experiences you can have here.

BECKY’S MERMAID

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!

Following is a link of an actual wedding at Casa de la Sirena (Troncones): Beach Wedding in Mexico.

With the storm  (Hurricane Rick) near our shores, I am sure that the surfing is unbelievable.  We are fortunate to have breaks that offer year round waves, (good ol’ Mexican surfing) but what can compete with this kind of action!  Check out the surfing video on our website, www.casadelasirena.net or www.houseofthemermaid.com.

We have special pricing available on the private villa for Thanksgiving week and a couple of weeks in January…..run for the border to a Barefoot Beachfront Mexican Vacation!  Email us for details.
