Oh yeah, Puerto Escondido is too far to drive from Aca...you can, but it ain't pleasant; and most surf spots along the way require long dirt road trips into oblivion. If you want surf outside of Aca, better to head north toward Ixtapa/Zihuatenejo...many spots more easily accessible from the coastal road, & pretty much all to yourself. Last Dec on the way to Ixtapa, I scored a left point break all to myself, right off the road in front of a row of restaurants. $10 for a whole snapper, beans/rice/tortillas & 2 beers.

BTW, re: Troncones point, it has been built up with housing, so good luck getting in unless you stay at one of the guest houses there. Too bad, it's like Trestles, but it's a left. Way too many surfers there to have fun, just like Trestles...no, make that worse than Trestles, 'cause it was small when I hit it, LOL. I was able to get in [last Dec] through the very last open lot which probably has a house on it by now. Urchin-infested rocks poke up in front of the take-off zone @ low tide- kind of gnarly. The beachbreak before the point is still wide open, but not worth the time. I also checked out nearby La Saladita a bit further north, but it was small & crowded & expensive. Those are 2 spots I won't be going back to.

Last note: high prices for everything in all the developed areas during high season, as they are packed with Mexican tourists more than foreigners these days. The $10 deal I mentioned earlier was off the beaten track. Service is a forgotten concept as well. Many areas are prohibiting camping for no particular reason, so if going feral is your thing, be prepared to be hassled by roaming federales/soldados who should be looking for narcos. instead.
Given the other posts here, this is the most info this thread will likely ever see. I got carried away since I'm headed back there real soon.
Good luck to all.
