The surf is up and it is almost time for our rains to begin!  They are magical for us here in Troncones, transforming our mountain jungle into carpets of green  lush velvet.  They visit us mostly at night….about the only thing better than sleeping to the sounds of the surf is adding the music of raindrops on the roofs of the compound’s villas and suites.   Maybe you will be  lucky enough to catch a daytime rain storm….. walk the beach in the warm rain or sit under a palapa sipping that first cup of coffee in the morning.  Pure magic!
