Our charming, chic hotel and yoga retreat is located on a quiet, serene beach in Playa Troncones, just thirty minutes up the coast from Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo, Mexico. Restore in a gorgeous setting with wellness classes and daily yoga by the sea. Rejuvenate with our offering of spa treatments and healing arts. Dine on mouth-watering, healthy, gourmet cuisine. Take in the local adventures such as sunset horseback riding, eco tours, hiking to caves & waterfalls, kayaking, surf-yoga excursions, surf lessons, shopping in our boutique, the village, and more. Even though the art of doing very little is a speciality we provide at Present Moment Retreat, we also believe that no vacation to Mexico would be complete without an adventure. We are blessed to be located in an area with an abundance of activity options. The availability of adventures varies by season, so kindly contact us if you would like specific information on what’s happening now, or what’s coming up.
Experience Adventure in Troncones
Countless surfers come to Troncones for our classic point breaks. There are amazing waves for longboarders and shortboarders alike. Excellent conditions for both beginners and experts. Lessons available upon request. If surfing is the focus of your vacation, check out our tailored Surf Packages to make the most of your experience!
The Sierra Mountain Range is directly across the road from the resort. Enchanted with forests of pine, oak, and aspen, and blessed with stunning blue skies, meadows, and mesas, your hike can be a gentle or an extreme adventure. It's up to you. Choose to have a local guide lead the way, or blaze new trails on your own. Don’t forget to bring your camera!
Kayaking and Eco Tours
Enjoy a relaxing experience paddling through the La Boca estuary. Surrounded by lush vegetation, this river is home to many different species of local wildlife. Our resident Marine Biologist Alejandro Rodriguez Pruneda shares his encyclopedia-like knowledge of nature as he guides you through a maze of riverways. This is an absolutely beautiful vacation activity and is a must for bird watchers!

Due to international culinary traditions, ocean contamination, and irresponsible fishing practices, the population of Sea Turtles has been decimated, making them an endangered species. Present Moment works closely with the Sea Turtle Sanctuary to repopulate this magnificent creature. Every afternoon on Troncones beach, during the winter months, dozens of Sea Turtles are released and you can take part in this amazing experience.
We feature local, professionally trained, friendly, and beautiful riding horses. Walk, gallop, and cantor along the stunning beaches and towns of Troncones, Manzanillo Bay and Majahua. Feel the transformational power as you get up close and personal with nature’s positive energy. Not only do horses provide us with entertainment and excitement, they are also extraordinarily comforting and therapeutic.
If surfing isn’t your thing, 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.
Troncones is situated in the midst of several beautiful snorkeling spots. Troncones Point, a short walk away, has a beautiful reef full of sea life. If you want to venture further, we’ll help you arrange transportation to Manzanillo Bay or Las Gatas, both of which are exceptional snorkeling destinations. Renting a mask and snorkel is possible, but we highly recommend that you bring your own.
