Hello, we have been To troncones In June the last 3 years and having a hard time finding what’s happening with the Covid 19 Situation. We canceled our planned trip for May and are looking at coming down September 28. I believe that’s one Alaskan airlines start flying again. We have not heard back from previous Rental agency . Maybe today or tomorrow we will in the meantime would anybody please let us know about the conditions we know usually things are slow this time of year which we like . We are curious if Things are open and if we play it safe would things be fine. Would appreciate any comments thanks Paul W

Alaska started their weekly, Saturday flights from LAX over a month ago. Flights are also coming from Phoenix on Saturdays.

Troncones has actively been soliciting for visitors. Search this board for recent comments.

At least for US we canceled our July/Aug visit to the area. I think it is WAY TOO EARLY to travel. It is just not the fact and getting off the plane there. It is THE ISSUE of all the contact getting there.

We hopefully are shooting for early December. I can not envision traveling in September right now.

We are scheduled for Jan 2nd to fly on a direct flight on United from Chicago. We have received no change in our reservations. Now flying from Chicago, you fly to Houston and the to MC and the Volaris to "Z". It's to early yet to worry.

@ "D" - Very sensible points.
I would add, the contact when "there" as well, unless one chooses to self-quarantine upon arrival, which wouldn't be much of a vacation.:vacation:

At this point, I myself also would not do or recommend to anyone ANY optional leisure/vacation type travelling.
From my perspective, I would suggest avoiding taking any unncessary risks. Not worth it, patience is the key.
In real estate it's "location, location, location."
In health care it's "prevention, prevention, prevention."
I am aware of others who are of the opinion that if one takes the recommended precautions, (which, YES, are preventative), the risks of getting infected are either minimal or non-existent. So be it.
People are free to choose on which side of the fence to encourage, advocate, and promote.

What a swell thing to post here. I can already sense the cancellations and hear the locals blaming me for allowing you to post such things here based on "feelings".

Before you delete your comment because of my criticism, why not try to defend your point of view based on something more than your "feelings".

Meanwhile the folks who are here sure appear to be enjoying themselves, especially the ones taking the simple but effective precautions as we will all likely to still be taking in a year's time.

Usually folks who live in a tourist community try to help promote its tourism, not sabotage it. Just sayin'...

That's YOUR interpretation, your criticism is to be expected, bickering is par for the course.
Oh, and feel free to delete my post. No big deal.

Oh, the current circumstances generated due to the contingencia sanitaria, I don't see as a "usual" situation in this or any other "tourist community".

A basic fundamental in health care is, as I stated:
PREVENTION, & doing all one can to AVOID getting ill in the 1st place, & keeping people well.

I have repeatedly heard the "experts" mention that increasing MOBILITY, which goes hand-in-hand when one travels, increases the likelihood that the virus will spread.
That has been proven to be the case in some areas when the mobility was increased in those populations. Cases increased.
As a result of that evidence, (and NOT by feelings) it accounts for the reason as to why I at this time, I don't promote, encourage, or advocate non-essential travel.

If anyone chooses not to believe the correlation between increased mobility and the increase in people getting infected, as many experts have stated, then go right ahead, your decision.

I support this statement made in a Lancet Medical Journal publication--->
https://www.thelancet.com/journals/laninf/article/PIIS1473-3099(20)30553-3/fulltext
"As we continue to grapple with the ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic on our health, society, and economy, we hope that our results will motivate both individuals and governments to make safe and data-driven decisions, and acknowledge the effect these choices have on all of our communities.

F.Y.I., let me add that:
I base comments I make on publications I read; many news programs and experts I hear on local, national, and International news type programs, that are in English or Español; as well as 1st hand observations, in other words, taking an objective approach based on facts, as much as possible, and AVOID injecting subjectivity such as "feelings", OR personal bias to my comments!
That simply is NOT my style.

Thanks for being so kind.;-)

Here in Kentucky, they started opening up the bars and restaurants. Now the cases have jumped because of no social distances and masks. Now the bars and restaurants without outside service or carry out have to close as of today for 2 weeks. They have found that since the kids could return to day care the number of the young ones getting the virus has been going up plus parents. Our town has in October a event called Court Days and there can be over 100,000 visitors for the event and it has been canceled for they can't take a chance- lot of complaints but better safe than sorry.

Our Mexican president showed us how it's done when he flew coach to D.C. and back to show The Chump what a true statesman and popularly elected political leader looks like.

Actually he did not! A smart one would have done his work online and remained in his country and avoid the risk of contamination instead of trying to show off by going to meet Trump. I certainly do not agree on all things with our local leader but I sure was happy that he decided to postpone any meeting in the US until it was safe to do so. This trip was not needed at this time.

You are missing the point. It wasn't about the meeting. He flew there and back to set an example and try to assuage fears about flying. AMLO showed more courage than any other modern leader has shown to date by making that flight. That's what true leaders do instead of hiding behind all their privileges. Mexico has to get its economy and its tourism up and running again.

Rob, with all due respect, you really need to knock it off with your "missing the point". You are not the master of all knowledge!!! When it has been clearly established that flying is not a good idea at the moment and one of the worst ways to travel as many of the infections are coming from such method of transportation, going to a meeting simply to sign a paper and do a photo op in the US is certainly not the right thing to do! A true leader set the example and this was a poor example. You and the rest of the world need their economy to restart but not when you are in the middle of a pandemic. We can clearly see what is happening in the US when you have the wrong priorities. Now is the time to stay put, wear your mask if you need to go in public and can't social distance. It is not the time to encourage people to travel! And by the way, this is not just my opinion but the one shared by most of the world medical experts. So who miss the point?

Only been coming over for way longer than you and in regular contact with folks living here if that matter. I am glad you are enjoying Zihua and all that it has to offer but I certainly stand by what I said and what the medical experts have recommended. It may not be the most popular opinion in a place that lives on tourism but I believe it is more important for the long term to wait it out and stay away as tourism is more than likely to bring more cases to Zihua and sadly more deaths and lifelong health issues until a solution is found for Covid.

No, I don't need to "knock off" anything, and that is a discourteous comment for you to make, amigo. Thank you for your OPINION, but that's all it is with a heavy dose of RATIONALIZATION apparently in defense of your Prime Minister Trudeau who didn't go to the D.C. meeting not because he was afraid of flying the Prime minister's exclusive exclusive Can Force One but because he detests he Chump and he allowed personal feelings to affect the relations between the two nations. That's what THAT was all about, and it's regrettable to see you paint it as anything else.

The Presidente did NOT get ill from the flight, and apparently neither did anyone else. So there went all that fearmongering out the window. Apparently flying and taking the correct precautions isn't as dangerous as you and "most of the world" make it out to be. And THAT is how you convince temerous people to fly after 5 months of having the nation's tourism industry completely shut down. AMLO set a fine and courageous example.

Rob, I totally agree with you that the reason Canadian Prime Minister didn't go is that he doesn't like Trump and is scared and intimidated by Trump. Which I guess is fine if you are a 12 year old. I don't buy the reason he is just trying to set a good example or he would not have been out with all the protesters (not social distancing) about a month or so ago. I guess right now the Unethical Mr. Trudeau has other things on his mind. As far as Covid goes I think I agree with the rest of the board until they throw in the US. I am not sure why Florida keeps getting mentioned as being in the worst position when it is obviously New York. I believe they have similar populations, but New York's death toll is over 30,000 while Florida's is around 5,000. As far as Mexico handling the virus it obviously isn't going well. On June 18th Mexico had around 15 deaths per 100,000 and the US had 36 (diff of 21). On July 26th Mexico had about 34 deaths per 100,000 and the US 45 (diff of 11). Even with these stats I agree with you that people have to get back to work. I suggest that most people who think we should just "stay put" are probably government workers. It's small business that makes North America tick, not governments. There is my two cents, now let it fly....Hope everyone has a great day. We are the lake it's going to the low 30's so it's going to be a great day. Looking forward to being back in Zihua in November/December.

The stats per 100,000 are mostly useless. Compared to who where? We are not doing random testing in Mexico, so that measuring stick isn't accurate for Mexico.

Mexico's immediate goal is to lower the rate of transfer or transmission between people to a number below 1.0. That's what's being done. Amazingly, even with a small resurgence, the Valle de México, o sea, the metropolitan area that contains about 24 million Mexicans, has flattened their curve and is on the downslide, or at least that's what I saw a few days ago on one of the briefings. The nation also appears to be doing similarly, but we'll know better in the coming weeks.

More aggressive testing is being done in areas like Zihuatanejo where the curve is rising, and surprisingly the most cases were detected recently in Ixtapa, not Zihuatanejo. Though the hillside colonias are certainly likely to have a problem, too. But the recent testing only confirmed suspicions. It didn't increase the death rate or the hospitalizations. So lots of stats quickly become obsolete and rather useless, which is why I keep saying to be careful that we aren't letting virus-mania carry us away so that we don't continue drowning in a glass of water and not appreciate the bigger picture which is the important one. Though Mexico isn't following protocols and modelling used by the USA or other nations, we are dealing with our unique circumstances quite well. Look how long it took Mexico after its first contagion to reach a point most better developed nations reached in much less time regarding the spread of the virus. That was the original goal, to allow our extremely poorly equipped public hospitals and clinics to have time to get prepared. Currently Zihuatanejo's hospitals are not overrun, and there are currently ventilators to spare.

And I think you miss the point about New York and Florida. New York has its problem quite clearly under control. It isn't a matter of total deaths. It's a matter of daily contagions. The rate of transfer is extremely high in Florida, among the highest anywhere in the world. Governor Mini-Chump is pandering to the Covidiots who apparently make up much of The Chump's base.

Those are "deaths" per 100,000 so I really do think they are relevant. As far as the States go some are doing well and some not so well so maybe it doesn't come down to just the President (yes I do think Trump is a lunatic). I sure hope you are right about Mexico. Take care and thanks for the response.

I meant that there are different circumstances including health issues and lack of medical care that can skew those numbers without really telling an accurate story. Once more testing confirms more cases the data skews differently. That's all. Not totally useless, but not entirely accurate either. I prefer keeping my eye on the tasa de transferencia and seeing what happens in a community that keeps the tasa below 1.0 for several weeks. It's like watching magic, except that it is what the epidemiólogos in the Secretaría de Salud are working hard to make happen. If the public cooperates, then it comes down, and if stays below 1.0 for a sufficient period of time then the contagion can be said to be under control.

We can clearly see what is happening in the US when you have the wrong priorities. Now is the time to stay put, wear your mask if you need to go in public and can't social distance. It is not the time to encourage people to travel! And by the way, this is not just my opinion but the one shared by most of the world medical experts. So who miss the point?

Totally agree we must not travel. Most of the travelers are from the high risk group based on aged alone.
Travel insurance is non existent without a vaccine and discarding all math and voodoo there will be no travel for some time.

I agree. Tourism is really important to Mexico’s economy. Hopefully life will return to normal in the near future.

He would have skipped the US meeting with or without the virus. He longs for Obama

Hi all,we heard back from rental agency in Troncones. They have close the town and beaches and might do it again if the virus gets out of hand.. There’s hardly anyone in town but they’re understandably nervous about Outsiders bringing it in. My heart wants to go but my Brain says stay home. Will check back in late September see if things are better. Not very optimistic that they will be.We feel for all the people who are hurting over this.Hopefully thing willImprove and we can all get back to what we like to do. Bummer missing out on south swells but more importantly y’all be smart and stay safe. Oh and by the way as a old saying goes (dump that chump) We can do better! Love to all.

Gee, that doesn't jibe with what I've been informed. Many lodgings are open, many have guests, and they are hopeful to receive more. You should deal directly with the local lodgings via the links on my website for Troncones Lodgings instead of with any third-party service.

I'm on the fence about reopening my house in Troncones. Cases are on the rise in Zihua and there's no sign of flattening. I've been closed since March.
