We lived in Morelia, Michoican 2006-2007 and drove four hours to Troncones 4 times with our two dogs.
Picked Troncones because of all the dog friendly places to stay. Love the area, Manzanillo Beach, and the places to stay. 35 mins away from Ixtapa if you desire glitter, night life and Cancun atmosphere.
Stayed at both Casa Manzanillo and The Inn at Manzanillo Bay. Both great places to kick back and relax. Staffs are super accomodating.
Good place to explore the beach, read, sleep to the sound of crashing waves, eat drink, sleep some more.
I prefer the food at the Inn as Casa a bit pricey, but food at both places excellent. Inn makes die for Bar-B Q ribs. Breakfast comes with at Casa and is good. Plenty of other good places to eat on the strip. Nothing fancy but great sea food and local dishes., we could bring the dogs everywhere, they just laid down under the table ( no restaurant inspectors) , and there are friendly beach dogs that come up to your table.
Casa has their own cat and dogs that roam the premises.
Casa has air conditioning. Inn doesn't. By May you appreciate a/c. You sleep under mosquitoe netting at the Inn in Palapas (round thatched huts with bath rooms .
Rooms at Casa large especially the bath rooms
I'd go tomorrow if i could take the dogs. We'd spend hours exploring tidal pools and chasing crabs.
Width of beach is 50 yds unlike Cancun and Cozamel. Very gradual slope and sandy all the way. Little undertow.
Yet out on the point one of the best surfing area in the world
Night life consists of going into the town of Troncones and watching night volley ball.
It's a one store, one gas pump fishing village
great place for families and there were plenty of children. No need to speak Spanish as most of staff fluent in English and all of the guests were non Mexican, but from all parts of the world
