I and my family (wife and daughter) have gone to Casa KI in Troncones for about a week in late December for the last 5 years, starting when our daughter was 8, and have taken other family and friends there a couple of times. Our daughter is insistent that we return annually and we are happy to do so. It is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy rural coastal Mexico. Tina and her staff are solicitous but not intrusive and the facilities are comfortable and beautifully landscaped. The beach is sandy with scattered rock outcrops that provide nice tide-pooling opportunities. There are nearby resources for natural history exploration, surfing, and fishing.
Over the years, we have stayed in all of the facilities and found them all immaculate and comfortable. The communal kitchen palapa works well and is the site of varied and delicious breakfasts.
A typical day for us involves a stroll on the beach after breakfast and then relaxing under the palapas, bird-watching, boogie-boarding, and playing in the surf. After watching the pelicans decorating the sunset into the Pacific, we usually eat in one of the nearby inexpensive but good restaurants or take a cab a couple of miles to more elegant but costly places.
If you want to unwind and would rather be woken by a rooster than be kept awake by a disco, this place would be hard to beat.
