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!

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.

There is no better way to experience the tranquility of this part of the world than by attuning to nature and to your body.

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!
