Atmosphere

I've been coming to Troncones for about several years and only met great people, locals, ozzies, americans, spanish and even a couple of swedes who are all here for a good time, and one or two cold beers!

looks much better than it actually is - I took a trip to this area based on a friends recommendation...turns out he was only acting like it was great because he thought I'd never go all the way down there (wish I hadn't). That whole zihuat area kinda sucks for surfing. Troncones, in particular, is super weak and mushy the whole way inside the point/bay and has a dangerous dry rock right in the middle. It's only good when it's breaking way outside....you'de have to time your trip perfectly with a good swell. The pics look tempting, but don't bother. If you go, only eat at the hotel restaurant - the local vendor's food will make you horribly sick for days.

Overrated - The wave looks good but its really pretty boring. Manzanillo Inn is a nice spot with nice staff but restaurant prices are a joke. At those prices avoid avoid avoid avoid. Cafe Sol down the road is about 100 times better option food is excellent and prices are fair.

Mexico or Bali? - Hesitating right now where to go. Bali or Mexico (Troncones). Which one would you chose?
