An Oasis within an (eco) oasis

Troncones is an oasis of biodiversity.

With very little developed land, a partially-paved main road, and few buildings over two stories tall, this area is all about Nature, with a capital N. Apart from pristine beaches and clean, clear and warm waters, Troncones boasts lush tropical forests, mangrove groves , rivers, waterfalls and lagoons.

Or, get out and about and do and see even more — with activities like mountain biking, hiking, lagoon and river kayaking, and even spelunking.

Local eco tour companies provide affordable and fun daily excursions to sample the ecological riches of the Troncones area.

A spectacular variety of birds hang out near the house, including orioles, woodpeckers, wild turkeys and the occasional wild parrot. Fish ply the waters of our swimming hole, and endangered  sea turtles are very fond of laying eggs on our sandy, sleepy end of the beach. And, of course, there are the ever-present bug-eating geckos and the occasional iguana visitor.
