Troncones, or ' Playa Troncones', is a small coastal town located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico in the state of Guerrero.

Small beaches in Troncones

Get in[edit]

By car, Troncones is about 45 minutes from Zihuatanejo. Negotiate with a Taxi before you get in, but a Taxi will usually charge about USD$70 from the airport. Alternatively, there are frequent buses that head north on the highway from Zihuatanejo. If you board one of these, ask the driver to drop you off at the turn off to Troncones, and then take a colectivo to the township. This is a much cheaper option.

Get around[edit]

Most things are within walking distance in Troncones, but 'colectivos' run up and down the beach from Troncones to Majagua, and from Troncones to the highway for 5 pesos per passenger.

Do[edit][add listing]

Enjoy all kinds of activities on the town's three mile stretch of nearly empty beach. Spend the day splashing around, boogie boarding and/or body surfing. Take long walks, runs, or horseback rides on the playa. Or just relax in the hammock, read, and recharge your batteries.

Learn to surf 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). Local ecotour companies provide additional entertainment and exercise. Surfboards, stand up paddle boards, bikes and ATV's can all be rented in town. For the more contemplative, Troncones offers daily yoga, meditation, and chi gong classes—all with a stunning ocean view. There are great surf camps in this area as well as many, many empty surf breaks waiting for a board. Nearby is a huge cave system, great to check out some of Mexico amazing wildlife. Snorkeling Directly off Troncones point is some of the best in the area. A public access to this area is located directly in front of Troncones Point Surf Club and Hostel, they also offer snorkel rentals, and cheap surf trips to many of the nearby surf spots. There are a number of safe swimming areas, the best being directly in front of Hacienda Eden (the food is excellent as well) although always watch for riptides as they can get strong sometimes. Small children should not be in the water without supervision as it is open Pacific coast and large waves may come even on a very calm day.
