Get stoked in Troncones

"Surf crystal clear waters in Troncones - one of the prettiest places in Mexico, with several fun breaks for everyone - from beginners to intermediate or advanced surfers. Let's find some hidden gems and get stoked on this fantastic destination!"

The surf

Peak swell
Variable swell

The waves break year-round with larger swells, starting in April and continuing through summer's northern hemisphere. This is an ideal time to visit because swells are more consistent and the lineup is less crowded - if you can handle the bigger surf, rain and heat.

For those who like the cooler temperatures, clean and consistent knee to shoulder/head high waves occur in the high season, which runs from October through April.

Mid-December to mid-January is when the waves are the smallest yet very fun, clean, and consistent - ideal for beginners and longboarders in the knee-to-waist-high club. If you are an advanced surfer, we do venture to unmarked locations for a change of scenery at this time, but I recommend spring/summer as an alternative.

The adventure

Troncones is a small seaside village located between the Sierra Madre mountains and the Mexican Riviera. This is where visitors come to find peace, great surf, and the classic atmosphere of a Mexican getaway. The 3-mile long coast has attracted surfers looking to surf the many world-class breaks in the area.

The village is also known for its eco-tourism and activities like horseback riding on the beach, hot spring snorkeling, kayaking, and fishing can be booked during your trip.

Troncones is an excellent destination for the whole family: surfers and non-surfers. The nightlife is very active. You can find bars and restaurants with live music and great authentic Mexican cuisine.
