Looking for 5 day getaway from midwest and toddlers with hubby spring 2012. Have considered Zih in the past as i've heard great things. started also hearing about Troncones as good alternative/off the beaten path. We are not surfers though. Active couple in early 30's looking for laid back with some optional activities, good food and most importantly authentic experience that is not touristy. nothing worse than toursity vacation. We are not looking for big chains, willing to trade some creature comforts for authentic experience away from crowds. not willing to forgoe good food though.
any recommendations? Vill Carolina is on the short list in Zih and Inn at Manzillo bay in Troncones.
also hubby is concerned about safety. any reason to be in this part of mexico?
