Want to learn all about surfing on the magnificent Mexican Riviera in the area in and around Troncones Beach? "Surfing Guerrero" by Bill Cooksey is the ticket!
Troncones is situated between several beautiful snorkeling spots. Troncones Point, a short walk away, has a beautiful reef full of sea life. If you want to venture farther, we'll help you arrange transportation to Manzanillo Bay or Las Gatas, both of which are exceptional spots. Renting a mask and snorkel is possible, but we highly recommend that you bring your own.
To get a taste of the snorkeling experience, read Jen Garland's story about his adventure Snorkeling Zihua.
If surfing isn't your interest, you might want to take one of our complimentary boogie boards out to play in the waves. Adjacent to Present Moment is a long stretch of idyllic beach perfectly suited for swimming, boogie boarding and playing in the waves.

Due to a international culinary traditions, ocean contamination and irresponsible fishing practices, the population of Sea Turtles has been decimated making them an endangered species.
