Troncones is a small fishing village located in the Mexican state of Guerrero.

Wildlife in Guerrero, Mexico

Guerrero is known around the world as an ecological wonder. Within this small state, you’ll find everything from ocean and beachfront wildlife to the mountainous forests of the interior.

December 28th, 2011

One of the benefits of booking a Mexican vacation villa like Casa de la Sirena is that you have the opportunity to enjoy a quiet tropical background that’s ideal for rest and relaxation.

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.

If you’re thinking about traveling to the Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa region, you may want to take a few days to explore the rich culture in Zihuatanejo. Although this is a largely tourist area, with plenty of shops and beaches to fill your days, there is also a varied and complex past to the region.
