Surf Trip: Guerrero and Michoacan Mexico

Published by at 12:39 pm under Uncategorized

I’m posting this from a tiny surf village in Michoacan, Mexico. Ah, the power of technology. I’m a week into my 10 surf trip to Guerrero and Michoacan, Mexico. We flew into Zihuatenajo and scored a solid South swell the first four days north of Zihuatenajo near Troncones. Troncones is a chill beach village with a couple of fun waves and a pounding beachbreak. We stayed at Manzanillo Bay in Troncones. From Troncones, there are a handful of breaks within driving distance, Saladita and The Ranch being the best ones. Saladita is a full, super-long left hand wave better on a fish or longboard. The Ranch is another left hander with better shape.

After the swell subsided, we packed up and headed north to Michoacan and the surf there. Look for a full review to come in the next few days. Great to be surfing in trunks again.

    Sounds like you had a fantastic trip. It really is a great area to surf, relax and eat well in. The whole Pacific coastline actually is just fantastic. If you have the time I recommend taking a vehicle (4×4) all the way done the coast checking out all the well and not so well know spots you will find along the way. So much to explore and so many great waves to find.
