The summer happenings in Troncones (Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo) Mexico or
DISCOUNTS…..enjoy the premier beachfront compound in Troncones at great rates!
It is officially our summer season and everything slows way down for us on the beach. It’s warmer now, so everyone walks a little slower, the dogs snooze a bit more and our local tiendas may run out of coffee creamer from time to time. There are a couple of things you can always be sure of in our little part of paradise. Cold beer, great food and the dramatic  beachfront view that the Sirena compound offers. Stay with us before October 31st and receive a 25% discount. Even if you book the whole compound! And decide to get married!

Book your January stay by November 15th and we will offer a 10% discount. It’s our way of making sure everyone still gets to vacation, therefore bringing a little sunshine to this dreary economic mess! These offers are subject to availability, for new reservations only and you must mention this special.
Whether you choose a private villa, a one bedroom mini villa or a 2 story bungalow, the beachfront Casa de la Sirena (House of the Mermaid) compound is simply luxury on the beach. Actually, your own private beach!

Destination Wedding Venue…an old mermaid recipe
What stress? Here goes:
Take 2 people in love, mix together friends and family, fold in a savvy, full service local wedding planner, pour into a spectacular beachfront compound and sprinkle with flowers, laughter and fun. And, ok. A little tequila can’t hurt. Poof….may the rest of your lives together be so happy and carefree!  You may want to make a few more decisions about the most special event of your lives together, but you don’t have to! The Sirena compound is an absolutely perfect venue and don’t let anyone talk you out of having your celebration in Troncones! The small village atmosphere is just amazing……..everyone knows everyone and so everyone will probably know why you are visiting. If you require additional lodging for friends, they can easily be accommodated right up or down the beach at neighboring properties. And, the amazing part is that we have had bride after bride tell us that a week at our compound was actually less expensive than ONE NIGHT for the ceremony and reception venue in the states! Check out the photos and video at

Private Yoga Retreat…an old limber mermaid recipe
About the same as the wedding recipe! The compound has 9 completely separate suites, so plan on 9 – 18 of
your most adventuresome students and make a run for the border! The small garden suite can be used for a teacher or private chef quarters. The outdoor platform is shaded throughout the day by beautiful indigenous trees, and the sound of the ocean is the only music your class will ever need……..a truly amazing escape! Hire a local cook,
explore our fabulous restaurants, bring entertainment in….make it your best retreat ever!

The people…
Humberto has fully recovered from his appendectomy and is busy with Antonio’s help in getting the maintenance projects completed. His warmth and attitude never cease to amaze us and no wonder every single one of our guests becomes his friend. Seriously. Maria just celebrated her 42nd birthday and we gave her the hottest red dress ever to celebrate in. After all these years cleaning at Sirena and being a huge part of our family, she “accidentally” mutters a few words in English now once in a while. Veronica is packing up the gift shop for the season and she and Jesus are doing great. Mike and I are busy bees back in our “real” world…..thankfully!
