If you're not looking for nightlife, Troncones is a good place to look. :)
The area that most visitors think of as Troncones is about a 5 km strip of beachfront, running from the village of Troncones in the south to the village of La Majahua in the north. There are about 100 rooms in this area. Probably a total population of less than 1000.
This lends itself to lots of beach walks with few people.
There are probably half a dozen restaurants where visitors would eat at the village of Troncones. (I'm thinking of El Burro Borracho, Tropic of Cancer, Costa Grande and maybe three of the restaurants opertated by locals).
About 3.5-4 km north of this area is the Playa Manzanillo area, between the village of Troncones and the village of La Majahua. There are two restaurants here, R. Playa Manzanillo and R. La Cocina del Sol. (I think that Cocina del Sol is the best restaurant in the area.)
There are three or four Mexican ramada-style restaurants in the village of La Majahua. (R. Las Brisas Mexicanas, R. Los Angeles, R. Majahuitas and the other one that doesn't have a sign.)
Most of the accommodations in Troncones are in the "downtown" area of the village of Troncones. The Playa Manzanillo area has a cluster of Bungalows Las Chozas, Posada de los Raqueros, Posada Eden, Casa Manzanillo and our house, Casa de los Suenos Tropicales.)
