Troncones is approximately 30 minutes from the Zihuantejo International Airport. Some of the airlines that offer direct flights to Zihuantejo are Continental, Alaska, Aeromexico, Mexicana, America West and Frontier. Car rentals are available from the major companies, and reservations can be made on the internet.
If you prefer not to rent a car there are plenty of taxis available at the airport. Make sure you get the one with the air conditioning.

If it works out you can stop in Zihua at the Bodega or Commercial to do some grocery shopping. These stores will have everything you might need.

From the airport take highway 200 northwest through Zihua and toward Ixtapa. Continue on Highway 200 toward Ixtapa and veer to the right at the top of the hill toward L. Cardenas, continue to follow the sign to L. Cardenas until you reach a turn off to Troncones, about 30 minutes past Zihuatanejo.

Follow the signs to Los Cardenas. Keep an eye on the right side of the road, you will see a white marker 31 Km, you will then see a sign Playa Troncones. Take the next left at the tourist guard station/bus stop, and follow this road, through the village. When you see the beach in front of you and you are at the 'T in the road, make a left.

Follow this road approximately '''' kilometer (1/4 mile), past several restaurants and villas until you see the sign for Villa Festiva ''' yes on the beach side.

Open the gate and enter paradise!


This is the tropics and we have a list of items you should consider bringing along:
Passport ''' this is no longer an option when traveling out of the country
Beach Towels
Comfortable beach clothes
Shoes for hiking or biking and water shoes for those tide pools on the beach
Personal Hygiene products
Bug spray
Flashlights for those night beach walks
Ipod or personal music choice
Binoculars for bird or whale watching
Fins and snorkels can be rented locally
Books and magazines are available at the villa, but if you have a favorite, bring it along

Credit cards: Please check with your credit card companies. Let them know you will be using your card out of the country and where. Trust me I learned this the hard way.
Several restaurants on the beach take credit cards now, but there are still many that do not. None of the local tiendas (little stores) take credit cards.

Surfboards/boogie boards: If traveling with surfboards, please check in advance with your airlines about any embargos on transporting surfboards. There are certain months where airlines will not transport the boards due to the volume of passengers and the size of the planes. Boards both surf and boogie are available locally and usually at reasonable rates.

We had the time of our lives! The shopping, body surfing; we loved every minute of our beach time. The house is more beautiful than we could have imagined. The sound of the waves & the balmy breezes - can't forget the sunsets and all the delicious food! This has been one of our very, very, best vacations. We just can't thank you enough for everything.

This was one of the very best places we've stayed. The home is just gorgeous, right on the beach, with special touches like local artisan sculptures to be seen in many spots. You should see the showers! The staff is courteous and helpful, and the infinity pool and palapa bar is too much fun! We plan on returning next year, this is so perfect.


Fantastic villa!

Fantastic villa!

August 25, 2008

I stayed with my wife on the main floor bedroom. The house is simply amazing! The open floor of the living areas with a nice breeze from the sea and the pool are just perfect for relaxing. Anywhere you are you can see the ocean (from your bed, the kitchen, plenty of sitting areas, and even the shower! There is a little something around every conrer. The beach is right at your doorsteps. We saw some people walking on the beach but always had a perfect empty beach to swim (my wife enjoyed the beach while I the ocean). We saw a couple of dolphins while having breakfast outside our room. I only regret I didn't spend more time there.
