Troncones or Barra de Potosi??

Staying in Zihua/Ixtapa again for a week in mid-February. This time we're thinking of taking a day trip (besides the one we take to Ixtapa Island via local bus/water shuttle) and are considering Troncones or Barra. Ideally, it would be nice to hang out on a beach, eat, drink, and wander through a town. Has anyone been to both or either? Comments or advise? I think we'd probably use local public transportation, if possible, to get there from Ixtapa.

We were on a tour group and we went to Barra. The restaurant we ate at was good. It looked like an interesting place, but we didn't have that much time to explore. There was a lot of beach went we went in March because the water level I guess is low that time of year. Sorry i can't be of more help. I did take a picture of the sign of the restaurant so if you want the name of it you can email me.

Don't waste your time going to Troncones, Its very dusty and dirty dirt roads that lead to nowhere.
