You can park your car at Casa Manzanillo they have a great restaurant and a surfshop / boutique, where you can rent surfboards etc.
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!
Good waves, good weather, good food, good people!
What more could you need?!
Life is good in Manzanillo Bay, Troncones!!!

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?
