The Property

Casa Delfin Sonriente is a beautiful bed and breakfast and rental villa in Troncones near Ixtapa on Mexico's spectacular Pacific Coast.

When you need a break from surfing the area's great waves you'll find games galore at the house including bocci ball, a poker table, board games and more. On the beach in front of the house you can gallop along the shore on horses available for rent, explore nearby caves, hike through the jungle or try some of the wonderful fishing just right off shore.

Troncones Beach

Nearest break at 0.8 miles

Also known as Troncones South. Troncones is a powerful and barreling normal to long A-frame reef break. This 5 kilometer stretch of beaches offers several breaks for intermediate surfers and some that are beginner-friendly. The area is very rocky with multiple outcroppings along the beach; local knowledge here is key to finding the best peaks along the coast. Shortboards, funboards, and bodyboards are all good here. Consistency is year-round with the best conditions in summer.
