Troncones, Mexico: Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo’s Paraíso Secreto

February 1st, 2012

La región de Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo es uno de los destinos vacacionales más populares para aquellos que buscan unas vacaciones de playa de México. A pesar de que son dos ciudades distintas, Ixtapa y Zihuatanejo son a menudo agrupados debido a su proximidad y su enfoque compartido en el turismo. Están situados a unos 150 kilómetros al norte de Acapulco, compartiendo el mismo tramo de la Costa Grande, pero con menos gente y un ambiente más tradicional.

Staying Fit and Active in Your Mexico Vacation Rental

September 14th, 2011

One of the biggest challenges to going on vacation — whether it’s to Mexico, Europe, or even just across state lines — is maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The good habits of eating and exercise that we work so hard on at home become difficult when faced with a change of schedule, lots of delicious food and alcohol, and a desire to do nothing more than spend the day soaking in the sun on the beach.


High Season at Casa de la Sirena in Troncones Mexico

July 28th, 2011

Mexico vacation travel is fun any time of the year, but most people flock to the sandy beaches and sunny shores during the high season. Running from mid-November through Easter, this is the time of the year when the warm weather, low-key atmosphere, and luxury amenities appeal the most to vacationers. There is no better time to step away from the winter blahs and enjoy a family getaway than during this busy, holiday season when the Mexican coast is at its peak.


Beyond Sunbathing: Extreme Sports in Coastal Mexico

May 25th, 2011

Surfing and other extreme sports in Troncones MexicoThe sleepy beach town of Troncones, which is located about a half hour’s drive north of Zihuatanejo beach resorts and Ixtapa vacation rentals, might not be the first place you think of for big adventure and even bigger adrenaline. After all, pictures here capture happy couples getting married in the sunset, tropical drinks being sipped on a hammock, and the serene crash of the waves on shore.

However, don’t be deceived by the low-key atmosphere you find here. If action and adventure are what you’re after, extreme sports in Troncones offer more than enough opportunities to make your vacation more than just another day at the beach.

BECKY’S MERMAID

This photo, “Becky’s Mermaid” is so special to me.  Doug and Becky Stow stayed with us last year.  Doug has been a fabulous painter for lots of years and this was Becky’s FIRST PAINTING!!!

And, she gave it to me!!!  She has inspired me and I am hoping to return to my painting lessons when we get back to the beach.
We  have been busily preparing for high season.  We are doing allot of upgrades, painting, re-upholstering and generally just making the private villa and 2 story bungalows “new” again.     It is beautiful now and will be even more so by the 1st of November when it is complete.
GARDEN TIME!  Yes, we are hoping for a great garden this year to accompany our chives, basil, chilis, mangoes, papayas and limons.   We have planted tomatos, squash, warm weather spinach, rosemary and red bell peppers hoping that our love of gardening and attention to the plants surpasses the challenge of the salt air that comes with being right on the ocean.  If anyone has any tips, we would love it if you would share!
We are grateful that the hurricane by passed us and Jessica and Jarrod’s sunset beachfront wedding and celebration was perfect!   Destination weddings in Mexico need not be expensive or difficult.  Just let us help!
Our “cast of regular” Mexican surfer dudes were back for their annual trip (actually, back twice) and made a great Mexico Troncones surfing video available for view on our website.  Thank you to Mike and the guys at Swellmagnet.com.
We still  have a cancellation for the private villa  over Thanksgiving week.  Make us an offer!  If you have never visited us before, this is a perfect opportunity for a romantic get-a-way or a last minute family escape.  We’ll leave the lights on!
