Troncones Activities

Whether you’re on a girlfriend getaway, romantic getaway, honeymooon, surf safari or a family beach vacation, you’ll find tons to do here. Of course, if you’d rather just stay in the hammock, that’s fine with us.


Our three-mile stretch of nearly empty white sand beach is a paradise for surfing, body surfing, boogie boarding, stand up paddle boarding, etc. Take surf lessons on Troncones beach and/or tackle one of the many nearby surf breaks, including Saladita, a.k.a. “The Wave Machine” (a great spot for beginners and long boarders) and The Ranch.

Majahua, our nearby fishing village offers boat rentals for surfing or fishing. Sport fishing excursions are also available. Surfboards and stand up paddle boards can be rented in Troncones and Majahua.

Plenty of fun to be had out of the water, as well. Go horseback riding or running on our crowd-free beach. Play beach volleyball or frisbee ’til the whales come home. Or, ride a bike into town for an ice cream, or into the countryside for some fresh mangoes (if they’re in season).

Bike rentals are available at several places in town.


Troncones Mexico is a tiny town surrounded by nature. With very little developed land, a very recently paved main road, and few buildings over two stories tall, this place is all about Nature. Apart from pristine beaches, Troncones boasts lush tropical forests, mangrove sanctuaries, rivers, and lagoons.

Watch iguanas sunbathe on palm trees from local restaurants, help release baby sea turtles at sunset, see and hear hundreds of species of tropical birds—all from your hammock. Or, get out and about and see even more — with activities like hiking, spelunking, bird-watching, and lagoon and river kayaking.

Costa Nativa, our local eco tour company, provides daily excursions complete with waterfalls, lagoons, rivers, caves and splendid bird and animal life.


Or if you’d rather just chill out and recharge your batteries, perhaps you need to lay on the beach and work on your tan, while sipping a cold beer? And when you get too hot, make a splash in the clean, clear Pacific ocean (or in our lovely, cool plunge pool). If you’re after the ultimate relaxing beach vacation, don’t forget about quality hammock time under swaying palm trees, tide pool exploration, and long sunset walks.

Troncones also offers daily yoga, meditation, and chi gong classes―all with a stunning ocean view.


Nearby Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo serve up a cornucopia of more urban entertainments―shopping, restaurants, nightclubs, movie theatres, a dolphinarium, etc.―even miniature golf, Magic World adventure park, and “Flintstones Land” for the kiddies, and even two golf courses. In Zihuatanejo, you can participate in activities such as shopping, boat excursions, paintball, parasailing, jet skis and more.
