Benefits of Vacationing in a Small and Friendly Mexican Village

When many people envision a Mexican vacation getaway, they think of the popular hotspots like Acapulco and Ixtapa. These vibrant and bustling metropolitan centers are all about having a good time—and having it in nightclubs, crowded shops, and beaches full of people.

While this kind of vacation has its own appeal, we know it isn’t for everyone. That’s why Casa de la Sirena offers a low-key, relaxing alternative. If you’ve ever wanted to enjoy a quiet beach town set on the tropical Mexican coast, Troncones is the place for you.

Small Towns in Mexico

Small towns in Mexico are a little like small towns all over the world—there is less of a focus on commerce and more of a focus on people. Mexican villages are known to offer more family-owned and operated business (restaurants, shops, and recreational facilities) and to add a personal touch to every experience. Small towns are where you’ll find the best open-air markets and handcrafted wares, and all in a setting that doesn’t put pressure on you to buy.

That’s because instead of being one more tourist pushing dollars and cents through the city, you become a recognized face. It’s not uncommon to find yourself chatting with locals and learning about the secret hotspots that you can only find if you know the area. And the atmosphere is much more relaxed, as well. Because there is no press of people, and because much of the landscape is untouched, there is no hurry to get to the next big sight or adventure. In a small town, adventure happens at its own pace, and you can spend as much or as little time getting to know the people and all the town has to offer.

Why Troncones?

Troncones, located about forty-five minutes from the Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo region, is the ultimate Mexican village. Although Troncones is considered a tourist town, it is also a fishing village, a close-knit community, and a place where history and nature can be found in abundance.

For hundreds of years, Troncones existed only as a tucked away town where generations of fishermen worked hard at their trade and built a comfortable, beachside life for their families. It wasn’t until recently that the town began to see tourists move through—and even then, in small numbers that help retain a private and intimate feeling. Many of the activities and dining opportunities here still have ties to these early fishing days. Whether you prefer to see your fish on a plate or on the end of a fishing rod, there’s plenty here for everyone!

The community in Troncones is also something to be marveled at. Because the population is small and most families have grown up together, there is a sense of camaraderie you won’t find anywhere else in the world. And even better—Casa de la Sirena and the other upscale Mexican beach villas here are part of this setting. We know the locals and work with them to provide the best opportunities for both our guests and their businesses. It’s a personal touch we’ve ingrained into our business practices, and that you won’t find just anywhere.

If you want quiet serenity, plenty of nature, and an opportunity to get to know the warm, welcoming people of coastal Mexico, you’ve come to the right place. Make your next Mexico beach vacation a personal experience you’ll never forget—and do it in a small town that cares as much about your enjoyment as its own.

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.
