Taxi is about N$250 each way. The trip is about 30 minutes.

For bus service take a northbound mini bus that has the words, "La Union" written on the windshield. I think this bus is about N$10/person. Ask the driver to let you know when you get to the Troncones turnoff, but pay attention yourself.

You will go through the towns of Salitrera, Pantla and Buena Vista. About three km or so north of Buena Vista is the turnoff for Troncones. If you watch the distance marker posts at the side of the road, the turnoff is between the 30 and 31 km. markers.

When you get off the minibus, there is a stand selling refreshments. A combi (van of some sort) operates a shuttle service between this locat1on and "downtown" Troncones. Depending on which combi it is, it may go only as far as "downtown" or may also go north to Playa Manzanillo and the village of La Majahua. I believe the fare for this combi is between N$10-15/person, depending on your destination.

Travel time by bus varies. Figure a minimum of 30 minutes from Ixtapa to the Troncones turnoff. Then a wait of one to 30 minutes for the combi. Then 10 to 20 minutes, depending on where you are going within the Troncones to La Majahua stretch.

So if you are four people, a taxi would be N$250 and about 30 minutes. Buses would total about N$100 (4 time $N25) and about 40-80 minutes.
