ABOUT TRONCONES Troncones   is   positioned   on   the   west   coast   of   Mexico   in   the   state   of   Guerrero.   Tucked   between   the   Sierra   Madre   del Sur   Mountains   and   the   Pacific   Ocean,   its   optimal   location   protects   it   from   tropical   storms   and   hurricanes.   No major storm has hit this area in living memory. It   is a more relaxed lifestyle here than you’ll find in many destination resort towns. There   are   several   small   inns,   B   &   Bs,   restaurants   and   many   lovely   private   homes,   several   of   which   are   available   to rent.      The   seafood   is   fresh,   the   sunsets   awesome   and   the   locals   (native   and    foreign-born)   are   friendly.      It’s   a   little bit of Paradise. Did we mention the five kilometers of often nearly empty beaches? We   have   a   few   surf   shops,   several   boutiques,   a   couple   yoga   retreats,   and   a   whole   lot   of   bougainvillea,   hibiscus, colorful   birds   and   tropical   fruit   plus   a   plentitude   of   palm   trees   swaying   in   the   breezes   off   our   ocean.   During   high season   there   is   increased   social   activity   and   more   live   music,   and   often   dancing,   in   at   least   one   or   another   of   our restaurants.  What   Troncones   doesn’t   have   is   a   Carlo’s   &   Charlie’s   or   Señor   Frog’s.   Nor   is   it   exactly   an   umbrella   in   your   glass type   of   place.   This   is   not   just   a   tourist   destination,   this   is   a   real   village   and   real   people   live   their   lives   here,   or   half their   lives   in   the   case   of   our   six-months   a   year   residents.   Some   of   us   live   privately   and   quietly   and   others   prefer   to get more involved in the community, the same as anywhere. We   have   a   kindergarten,   a   primary   school   and   a   small   junior   high   school   equivalent.   There   is   a   pretty   church,   a rural   medical   clinic   with   dispensing   pharmacy   and   a   number   of   tiendas   that   sell   enough   produce   and   dry   goods   to keep   you   going   for   several   days.   In   our   high   season   there   is   a   fruit   and   vegetable   truck   that   “does”   the   beach   road   6 or   7   days   a   week.   Fresh   fish   is   available,   either   directly   from   the   fishermen   or   else   from   a   fish   purveyor   who   is   set up on the main road through the village each morning. There   are   two   basic   seasons   in   Troncones,   the   high   season   and   the   green   season.      The   high   season   runs   more   or less from November to May, the green season from June through October. The   high   season   has   slightly   cooler   temperatures    and   little   to   no   rain.   Cool   breezes   come   in   off   the   ocean   and   while much   of   the   US   and   Canada   is   locked   in   winter,   we   pass   our   days   under   clear   blue   skies   and   temperatures   in   the mid 80s. The   green   season   brings   slightly   warmer   temperatures,   higher   humidity   and   tropical   showers   that   conveniently happen   most   often   late   in   the   day   or   during   the   night.   With   the   rain,   the   surrounding   hillsides   are   vibrantly   green and full of wildflowers, birds and butterflies. We   naturally   have   more   snowbirds   and   tourists   during   high   season   with   people   escaping   northern   winters.   Our green   season,   however,   also   attracts   people   who   revel   in   verdant   subtropical   surroundings,   the   quieter   pace   and the    magic    of    the    lightning    shows    we    sometimes    get    on    some    summer    evenings.        Some    of    the    best    surfing conditions also occur during summer and fall.
