I discovered the Troncones area in 2000 and have been coming 1-2 times a year ever since. About 4-5 years ago, a buddy invited me and some fellow surfers to stay with him at the Casa De la Sirena which we drove by for years. It quickly became our #1 preference for good reason. Oh my God, this place is beautiful! Ocean front views, private gated community, swimming pools, Yoga platform, Deck BBQ, even a sunken bar in the pool. As we are there to surf, fish, relax, and keep a low profile, one of the coolest services is being able to pre-arrange for one of the local chefs to come over and serve us ocean front dinner each evening, poolside. As each villa has their own refrigerator and kitchen, we enjoyed cooking our breakfasts most mornings when returning from our first surf session
CDLS is also right up the street from Roberto's, the happening Argentinian steak house that quality wise, really seems to belong in Beverly Hills, not Troncones. All the locals and their guests show up here on Saturday night. The salsa dancing is fun, You'll likely get a chance to release sea turtles, and the Vacia Steak may be the best steak you'll ever eat anywhere. We even found a great Yoga place next door to Casa de La Sirena with a terrific 2 for 1 happy hour!
Don't let the travel advisories scare you! For some unknown reason, it seems TA, the state dept and the LA Times ("Mexico under siege") like to make this area sound far more dangerous than it really is. All the trouble down there seems to have been confined to the southern, Acapulco region and very northern Guerrero border, not in this area. If you are not a rival drug dealer, a member of law enforcement, or frolicking at 2;00am in cartel owned discos, there is really nothing to worry about but getting a sunburn. I'm going back in October and cannot wait!
