I'm not sure where you are getting your information. Troncones had a filter in place from April 10th until about 2 weeks ago. If I could have traveled in May to go to my house, I would not have been allowed in....so I would say it was CLOSED.

It is also my understanding that Guerrero is still "RED" which means the beaches are closed and hotels can not take on new guests. (I know a lot of people that were stranded in Troncones during the closure and stayed where they were)

So....since the Governor of Guerrero has yet to open the beaches....in the entire state....why are people driving to Troncones, Saladita and everywhere else to go to the beach?

Somewhere along the way you assumed these are laws when they are simply voluntary guidelines. Hotels ARE accepting reservations and rural beaches ARE for all intents and purposes open because it harms no one to allow people in rural open spaces. Only in Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa will authorities come escort you off the beach because they are areas where people congregate in large enough numbers for it to be a problem if safe distancing isn't respected.

You could have returned to your Troncones house at any time. No one there ever had the authority to block you from doing so, which was the objection I made to them originally that I hope had something to do with them scrapping that overly strict response.

Regardless of what's happening in the rest of Guerrero or what happens among the non-tourist community, folks here are going to reopen lodgings and restaurants to the degree that it is possible for them to do so while abiding by the new requirements for health safety. I have every confidence in our lodging and restaurant operators, and I certainly hope non-essential businesses will be permitted to reopen soon because starvation is NOT an option. We aren't receiving stimulus checks, and no one is helping the majority of people who have no savings, no funds to fall back on. I agree with my fellow zihuatanejenses that 4 months is long enough for us to have gone without income. The great majority of people here live day by day, and I really have no idea how most folks have been getting by because the few community kitchens set up by the military and the few organizations helping to feed people still don't even reach 10% of the population. Starvation is NOT an option. We're opening up. And I am confident folks here in the hospitality industry will get it right.
