Playa Trocones, Guerrero, Mexico
Present Moment Retreat
Troncones is located at the juncture of the paved road which runs from Federal Highway 200 to the beach and the rustic oceanfront lane that houses restaurants, outdoor activities outlets, accomodation rentals and private residences. Located only 20 miles north of Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo and an easy 45-minute drive to the International airport serviced by a number of International airlines including Alaska Airlines, Continental, American, America West, Frontier Airlines, Mexicana and Aeromexico, Troncones Beach is highly connected, yet still a world apart. Its proximity to Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo affords you a full choice of shopping conveniences and recreational possibilities, all just a short distance from your world-class yoga retreat and resort.
Troncones Point
Just a walk down the beach to our closest (and epic) point break. Strong waves with occasional tubes. The north point is a left-break on reef, sometimes with tubes followed by a smooth wall. Breaks year round.
Playa La Boca
Located a little over 2 miles north of Majahua Point. It’s a river mouth with lefts and rights, a sandy bottom, and a smooth and medium-sized wall. Breaks 3/4 of the year.
Playa La Saladita
Located about 20 minutes north of Troncones, entering through the village of Los Llanos. It’s a long and smooth river-mouth and reef left-break. A true World Class Wave. It breaks year round, though in winter it’s a bit smaller and better for a longboard, as long as you’re comfortable with lefts.
Playa El Rancho
Located about 40 minutes drive from our retreat. River mouth lefts and rights. The left point is the best area in the zone. A decent-sized long and strong break most of the year, and a small wave in the wintertime.
Playa Linda
Located at the mouth of Ixtapa River next to the Playa Linda Trailer Park. River-mouth lefts and rights with a long, smooth wall and in some parts a bit stronger. Breaks year round.
Playa Las Gatas
Playa Las Gatas is a small beach at the southern entrance to Zihuatanejo bay. A powerful left hander sometimes breaks over a rock-reef off the southern point. It needs a massive southwest swell to wrap all the way into the bay and so only breaks a handful of times a year. When everything else is maxed out you may get lucky here, and is protected from most winds.
Playa Las Escolleras
Located at Marina Ixtapa. A strong right beach break at a breakwater of rocks with a sandy bottom. Some tubes. Breaks 3/4 of the year.
Playa La Majahua
Located about 2 miles north of Troncones Point. Coral and river rock point. Medium and long left wall. Reef and sandy bottom. Breaks 3/4 of the year.
Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo International Airport
Troncones is a 30 minutes taxi ride from ZIH airport. We can make special arrangements to have a taxi cab pick you up at the airport. It runs around 750-850 Pesos. We would recommend bringing Pesos with you for the local restaurants and gift buying opportunities. At Present Moment we can take cash, credit cards and American Express. You can rent a car but it is best to take a cab to us and relax for a while. Kick back and take it all in. We have everything you need. We even have excursions to explore nearby lakes, caves, hot springs, and waterfalls.
