You will be staying at Casa Viva's beachfront rooms. Their beachfront Troncones vacation rental consists of three rooms or casitas plus a large common area with a sleeping porch above. The common area has a pool, Jacuzzi, and kitchen. Casa Viva comes fully equipped. Just bring your toothbrush and bathing suite. There will be a cook who can provide all your meals. Casa Viva is very private and built into a natural setting of local trees and plants. The casitas have natural palapa roofs, so you are sleeping under a beautiful natural basket.


Your rate already includes one hour of horseback riding for two people on your second and third day of stay (if coming with another person, please ask for additional rate).



Troncones is a seaside village with miles of unspoiled, beautiful sandy beaches. Casa Viva is about a 15-minute walk and 5 minutes bike ride from the village of Troncones.

In the morning, the pelicans pass by like pilots on a bombing run, looking for lunch. You know it's afternoon when you see them flying back in beautiful formation.

The meals are not included in the package.

The kitchen at Casa Viva is managed by Elvira. She's probably the best cook in Troncones and her salsa verde is famous all over Guerrero and Mexico. It is easier if she cooks and buys the groceries as you will save money by not overbuying. She cooks breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

All meals are served family style (not restaurant) meaning everyone gets the same menu and eats from large dishes placed in the center of the table.

The prices are managed by Elvira and you pay her for all meals. Please advise in advance if you would like meals, at least for the first few days, so that shopping in advance can be done for you. Please provide any dietary restrictions.

Things to do (optional)

Troncone's activities:

Horseback riding, fishing, caving, snorkeling, surfing, boogie boarding, and body surfing are famous activities here in Troncones. Ask staff and they will help arrange the activities, give them notice at least a day in advance.

There is great swimming, not only in the pool, but also in Manzanillo Bay, which is about a 25-minute walk, 10-minute bike ride, or 5-minute car ride. Manzanillo Bay is the place for surfing, boogie boarding and body surfing in the Troncones area. %There are a few rocks, but the surf is great and the point has a perpetual break. Closer to home, there are plenty of small tide pools along the beach; you don't have to snorkel to see a vibrant and diverse biosphere of aquatic life.

For excursions around Troncones area, Alejandro, who runs Costa Nativa Ecotours, is a super guy and a great guide.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo International Airport (ZIH). Direct flights generally from LAX, Houston, Mexico City, Denver, Minneapolis, Atlanta, and other locations during High Season. The airport is located about a 50-minute drive to Troncones Beach.

Arrival by taxi

Taxis cost about 70 to 80 USD for a one-way fare to Troncones, more for a Suburban or Large Taxi. The airport has only one taxi service, the desk is to the right of the exit door. You may get pestered by the timeshare folks on your way out of immigration. They are nice folks but not with the taxi service. Taxi rates are published and available upon request from the taxi stand. Feel free to tip your driver if they do a good job. A10% of the cost of the taxi is fine.

Arrival by car

Car Rental: You can rent a car, in advance for 40 to 50 USD per day (depending on the car). Rates are lower if you book directly with the local office than online as the local office will need to charge you for insurances after you book online. Most major car rental agencies operate out of ZIH airport including Thrifty, Hertz, Budget, and Payless. Casa Viva Troncones has a contact with Payless and can help negotiate a better rate with them if you are interested. Please contact Casa Viva Troncones by email for more information.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 20% of the total price.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
  • The rest of the payment should be paid 30 days before arrival.
