My friend and I had heard that Troncones and the Inn at Manzanillo Bay would be the perfect place to relax for our vacation. It did not disappoint! The vibe is great - you feel no obligation to do anything except exactly what you want to do. For us, this included reading with a view of the ocean, eating the great food at the Inn, swimming, going for walks on the beach, wandering around town, taking some surf lessons, SUPing, and watching the surfers at Troncones point. It is truly a magical place - we even were lucky to witness a turtle release at sunset! Troncones is a great place to visit for people like us who don't like the contrived feel of all-inclusive resorts and prefer authentic people and experiences.
Belem, the manager at the Inn, is responsible for making our experience so amazing. She is incredibly friendly and welcoming, getting to know each of the guests and their needs. It was our first time in Troncones and she made us feel very comfortable. Our stay at the Inn would have been good regardless, but under Belem's care it was EXCEPTIONAL.
In addition to relaxing we were keen to try the surf in the area. We are beginners, but were able to find a great instructor (Mike at ASI surf - highly recommend - http://www.isamexico.com/) and a mellow spot to practice our skills.
There is also a great photographer in the area for hire - William Mertz (http://williammertz.photography/) who takes shots of surfers at all skill levels. He snapped some great pics of me and my friend trying out the waves at Saladita (a good spot for beginners). Highly recommend his services for anyone wanting surf or wedding pics.
Definitely will visit Troncones and the Inn at Manzanillo Bay again! Just not soon enough :)
