We are not here to make money, we are here to make you feel at home by improving the quality of your Troncones experience year after year. We hope you will have left here feeling as if Casa Caprice is your home in Troncones. Having made many friends and having had such a unique experience while staying with us, you're sure going to be looking forward to coming back here soon! Casa Caprice is located on the South end of Troncones across the street from the nicest beach for swimming, boogie boarding, and playing in the waves. It is a long, open stretch of beach between two rocky points, there are no rocks in the water for a stretch of at least 500 meters on this amazing swimming beach! Primarily a surf destination, Troncones has grown with foreign investment over the past decade and has become a prime example of what people are really looking for in a tourist destination... a lack of tourists and a unique experience with all the amenities of a luxury resort town. Miles of beach with a limited number of large luxury vacation rental houses makes for very few people on the beach. At any given time (except sunset) you could be the only one walking on 6 miles of pristine Mexican beaches. Troncones will inspire you with it's beauty.
Surfing: Troncones has it's own world class point break wave (best in the summer) which is a 5 minute drive from Casa Caprice. Most of the surfers who stay in Troncones rent a car to get to a wide array of other world class waves such as Saladita (15 minute drive) which is one of the best waves in the world to learn on, the Ranch (35 minute drive) and other secret spots up and down the coast within a half hour to an hour drive depending on what kind of wave they're looking to surf. There are Surf Shops to rent boards and get surf lessons in Troncones and Saladita. Saladita and Troncones do have public transportion combis(vans) for one to get to and from both our local point break wave and the wave at Saladita just up the highway. To get to Saladita you have to make two connections on the local public transit system or book a lesson with the Surf Shop and get a ride to Saladita from Troncones. There is some nice beach break and a point that produces waves when we get a decent swell just 100-200 meters from Casa Caprice which for the most part go unsurfed when they are working. Sometimes there is no need to look any further than right here for amazing waves!
