Traveling with Friends: The Perfect Accommodations

Some of the best memories are forged between friends exploring the world together. From recent graduates setting out on their own for the first time to married couples taking a vacation filled with fun and adventure with their best friends, it’s long been a tradition to enjoy a trip with those who bring you the most happiness in life.

While there is much to be said about overseas vacations with friends, there are drawbacks, as well. For every night of dancing and drinking, there’s the hassle of finding a hotel that can accommodate everyone comfortably. For every poolside party, there’s a desire for a little private downtime. And for every consensus about where to eat or hang out, there’s a disagreement about where to stay.

Here at Casa de la Sirena, we make it easy to enjoy a Mexican beach vacation with two, ten, or twenty of your closest friends! No matter how many different opinions and activity levels are accompanying your group, we have the perfect accommodations for traveling with friends.

Space for Everyone: Casa de la Sirena offers three different room types: private villas, mini villas, and two-story bungalows. You can choose between private rooms and facilities for each member of your group, or you can all stay together in a private villa that boasts three separate bedrooms, your own kitchen and outdoor area, and even a private pool to share. These types of accommodations are ideal for people traveling as a group of couples.

Luxury Communal Spaces:
When you stay in a private villa or our two-story bungalows, you get both private bedrooms and communal living spaces—a must have for any group of friends out for a vacation together. Everything is designed with the same attention to detail and luxury, which means there’s no fighting over who gets what room. Everyone will share the same great ocean views from the privacy of their bedroom, and the living spaces and open-air patios make for great parties or days spent coming and going at your own pace.

Proximity to it All: One of the biggest challenges of traveling with friends is finding a way to cross off the items on everyone’s to-do list. Maybe one of you wants to hit the big city for dancing and parties. Maybe another wants to relax quietly on the beach. Maybe all of you agree on one thing: shopping and surfing. Here in Troncones, you have access to it all. You can stay on site for some rest and relaxation or travel into Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo for a more active nightlife.

If you’re looking to travel on a budget, there are even more reasons to consider Casa de la Sirena and our Troncones beach resort. Because our villas were designed around travel with family and friends, we have been able to keep prices low even as luxury hotels all around us have upped their prices for larger groups. We make it easy and affordable to enjoy the beach setting—and we do it all with an eye to your comfort, regardless of how many people are in your group or how long you plan on staying.

Weddings at Casa de la Sirena

If you’ve ever dreamed of a beach wedding, Mexico should be at the top of your list. Mexico beach weddings have grown in popularity over the past few years—and with good reason. Whether you’ve always dreamed of a destination wedding that doubles as a honeymoon getaway, or if you want simple, barefoot elegance that will make your day as special as you’ve always imagined, it’s all possible when you’re surrounded by a tropical location that has a charm and class all its own.

Why Choose a Beach Wedding with TronconesWeddings.com?

There are many reasons why a Mexico beach wedding has advantages over a more traditional affair. If you’re still on the fence about where to plan your big day, here are a few considerations to keep in mind.

Less Stress: It might seem counter-intuitive that planning a wedding from several thousand miles away would be easier than planning one right at home, but it is. That’s because most traditional weddings today have a guest list of over 100 people and involve coordination of dozens of individual vendors. On the beach, it’s just you, your betrothed, and a few select family members and friends. And because beach weddings are almost always a more casual affair, everything you need to make the event a success can be found at our facilities.

Easy Accommodations: Most weddings have out-of-town guests. From close family members to childhood friends, there are lots of important people you want at your wedding, and they may need to fly in from around the world. Instead of finding accommodations for everyone and providing for their entertainment, a beach wedding allows you to streamline all your decision-making. Casa de la Sirena is large enough to house up to 75 guests at a time, and the list of activities available to everyone is as long as our stretch of private beachfront. It’s even an ideal place for kids, especially if you’re worried about them getting bored during the ceremony. Instant sand castles make for great entertainment!

Privacy: One of the biggest hassles of planning a wedding is deciding on the guest list. You don’t want to leave anyone out or hurt anyone’s feelings—and that can lead to big stress. A Mexican beach wedding is a private affair, and almost everyone realizes that right from the start. When you plan a wedding with us, you don’t have to feel obligated to invite anyone other than your closest friends and family members, and feelings are rarely hurt in the process.

Save Money: While foreign travel might seem out of budget for your wedding, you can actually save money saying your “I do” on a Mexican beach. Today’s average wedding ceremony costs around $24,000—and that’s not counting the honeymoon! We can assure you that your trip to Mexico (including airfare, food, and accommodations with Casa de la Sirena) will come in well under that number, and you get the added benefit of staying as long as you want to enjoy your honeymoon with us.

Of course, it’s impossible to ignore the beauty and ambiance of the Troncones region when talking about a beachfront wedding in Mexico. Sunset weddings, riding up to the shore on horseback, and ceremonies set against the crashing waves are all popular among our guests here, and we can’t wait to add you to our growing list of satisfied newlyweds.

Staying Fit and Active in Your Mexico Vacation Rental

One of the biggest challenges to going on vacation — whether it’s to Mexico, Europe, or even just across state lines — is maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The good habits of eating and exercise that we work so hard on at home become difficult when faced with a change of schedule, lots of delicious food and alcohol, and a desire to do nothing more than spend the day soaking in the sun on the beach.

When you book a Mexico vacation rental at Casa de la Sirena, we make it easy to enjoy your getaway without losing sight of the bigger picture of your health and fitness levels. In fact, with a little advance planning, you can incorporate some of the higher-intensity activities we have here into your daily plans so that you can exercise without ever feeling like you’re exercising.

Here are a few tips for staying on track during your vacation:

Begin and/or end your day with a walk on the beach. The sunsets and sunrises here are spectacular, and there is something so calming about taking advantage of the crash of the waves as the sun and moon trade places. For a real workout, you might even consider taking a run along the expansive stretch of our private beach. Running in the sand is a tough workout even for the hardiest athletes.

Take advantage of local sports. In Troncones, activities like swimming, birdwatching, surfing, horseback riding, and hiking are all common among both tourists and residents. Now is a great time to branch out and try an activity you may not have considered before. It might even help to plan one of these each day, leaving the rest of the time to do your traditional lounging and hammock activities.

Rent our yoga facilities. Casa de la Sirena is one of the only Mexico vacation resorts that offers a beachside yoga studio that you or a group of visitors can rent. You do need to come prepared with your own instructor, but taking a yoga or pilates retreat is a great way to enjoy a new kind of vacation that’s all about your health and well being.

Cook and eat locally. Troncones is a traditional fishing village, and the residents here tend to rely on a diet that is full of fresh fruits and vegetables and fish right out of the ocean. When you book a vacation villa, you have a fully-equipped kitchenette and barbeque right in your accommodations. You can take advantage of the great local produce or eat out in a restaurant that taps into the economy and farms of the area.

Staying healthy on vacation doesn’t have to be a chore. Although it might be hard to say no to one more helping of arroz con pollo, or to get up early to take advantage of the cooler weather for your early morning run along the beach, you’ll feel a lot better knowing that you haven’t indulged yourself to an unhealthy level.

And if you do slip and enjoy one too many margaritas, don’t worry too much about it. A Mexico vacation resort like this one is meant to be enjoyed, regardless of how much time you’re able to devote to exercise and diet.

Mexico Vacations for Two: Romantic Couple Trips

Couple Vacation in MexicoWhen most people picture a Mexican beach vacation, they conjure up romantic images of couples strolling along the beach, a quiet sunset dinner for two, or the crash of waves accompanying an early morning kiss. Bikinis on the sand, tropical drinks delivered right to your hand, and private villas that allow for some quiet getaway time are all right here, providing the perfect backdrop for romance of any kind.

Unlike so many parts of Mexico, this isn’t just something the advertising companies want you to see. There is something magical about the beach setting and people in love that makes this part of the world so ideal for a romantic getaway. It doesn’t matter whether you’re newly married and searching for that perfect honeymoon, still in the getting-to-know-you-stages, or celebrating five, ten, or fifty years together. Mexican vacation villas set the mood, and all you have to do is show up and make the most out of it.

Feel the Love in Troncones

Those with a more low-key vacation in mind can take advantage of local resources and our great service to make the most out of doing nothing at all. And everyone in between can build the vacation of their dreams in this perfect Mexican vacation destination for couples.

Ocean Views: If you enjoy the sights and sounds of crashing waves, there is no better place to enjoy it than Troncones. Our facilities place you right on the beach—and we do it without the crowds. Because Casa de la Sirena is set away from the major tourist centers, we’ve made it possible to enjoy a private view in the middle of one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

Private Pools: One of the best things about our private villas is that you can get access to your very own pool and spa area. Enjoy an early morning swim with just the two of you, or splash into the night without disturbing the other visitors. We also have a garden patio perfect for taking a midnight stroll.

Luxury Furnishings: Troncones beach vacations offer five-star amenities at a three-star price. From the moment you arrive, you’ll be wrapped in lavish surroundings. Everything from the tasteful décor to the luxury bedding lets you know you’re taken care of when you stay with us.

Water Sports: Romance doesn’t have to be quiet and serene. Some of our favorite couples are the ones that push each other to the limit. This might mean taking a horseback ride along the beach, trying your hand at surfing, or spending a quiet morning on the water learning to fish.

Quality Drinks and Dining: From a celebratory bottle of champagne to colorful drinks on the beach, you’ll enjoy the wining and dining we have in store for you here at Casa de la Sirena. In addition to the high-class restaurants located nearby, most villas come equipped with their own kitchenettes and barbeques — perfect for enjoying the local produce and the company of the one you love!

His and Hers Spa Treatments: Perhaps nothing captures a romantic Mexican vacation better than a couples massage on the beach or a little pampering before a night out dancing. Romance is easy when so much luxury is waiting for you just around the corner.

Here at Casa de la Sirena, we’ve made it our goal to become a part of your love story. From the moment you arrive, we help you build the kinds of memories that last for years. Your happiness is waiting for you here on the beach — and we’re happy to hold it in safekeeping until you get here.
