Bus to Troncones

Is there a bus from Zihua to Troncones? We want to spend the day there and the last time we took a taxi, and the driver stayed there all day waiting for us. I'm sure he didn't mind and we did buy him lunch, but if there is a bus we would rather do that this time.

If you are in Zihua, you can take the bus in the market on Calle Los Cocos that says Union. Tell them your going to Troncones. They will drop you off on the Hwy 200 at the cut off to the town. A little combie will then take you to Troncones. the entire trip will cost you around 80 pesos.
If you are in Ixtapa, take the white and yellow bus to Pantla. At the downtown intersection get off and cross the street and you will catch the Union bus and get off again at the intersection of Hwy 200 to catch the same combie bus. Not to worry, tell the bus driver where your going and he will get you off at the proper location.
One great place in Troncones is on the right at the intersection in town called Mi Casa Su Casa Hotel and Restaurant. Great food and drinks and they will let you use the pool. Enjoy, we might see you there. Armando.

I would just like to add. If you have a number of someone in Troncones that can send the combi at the time you will be at the coco's stand, that would be helpful. Combi service is slow and unreliable up there.

How far is it to walk to Troncones from the intersection? This is assuming that the Combi doesn't arrive. What about the return times to Zihua? We went close to 10 years ago and took a taxi. Time to venture back!

Farther than you'll want to walk. We are walkers, and don't do it.

We've attempted to get to there a few times without success. Do you have a name of someone up there (and a phone #) to call the combo for us? Or better yet, the number to call the combo directly?

I've never had a problem getting a combi at the highway drop off. Sometimes it takes longer than others, but you're in the shade and esta Mexico!

You can’t call a combie! Can you call a man from Mars? They have a schedule to run and they only have 2 combies.

This is not true. We get picked up all the time. It is Mexico and it is who you know!

We go to Johnny's place up in Mahowa, Torro [something]. He makes the call for us.

Johnny's place is El Toro del Mar in Majahua. It is located on a beautiful stretch of beach and you can safely swim in the bay right in front of the restaurant. The food there is excellent!
