Troncones or Saladita

Thinking about a mexico surf trip, I like to longboard and my wife is coming so need a nice place to stay. Thinking about going surfing in Troncones or La Saladita.

Anyone have experience with surfing in this area of Mexico

Many thanks

RE: Troncones or Saladita

I haven't been there in over a year, but here's my thoughts- I stayed in Troncones & surfed Saladita while I was there- there's tons of place where we stayed, we picked one small place just before the beach road got it for $35/ night, weekly rate.  We wanted the basics, got a 1 br. with A/C, pretty clean.  Saladita has places for  $70 on up.  The restaurant & immediate area is charging $5 for parking- Jose's, just south of there was free at that time.  If the swell's small, the Ranch is good, but a heavy big cobblestone beach with a surging wave on the rocks was more than I wanted to tackle when coming in.  Corky Carroll has an all inclusive thing for around 2 grand/ week if you've got the budget.  Good luck, Lance



Just returned from Saladita and Troncones myself

Hey Mark,

My wife and I went two months ago to Saladita and Troncones. There are some really nice homes you can rent in Saladita that would suit any girl and the break is just a few minutes walk down the beach.

In Troncones I would stay at the Inn at Manzanillo Bay if you want a surf front location. Also Casa Viva about 1/4 mile away is wonderful and has an incredible pool and relaxing atmosphere (I stayed here too). I just wrote some blog posts about the trip and posted them on Wavecation. You can read them there, I think they'll help. Also you can see a list of all the houses to rent in Saladita.

Overall I highly recommend the area. The surf is great (especially if you're a goofy foot) and my wife and I both felt safe.
