Although Troncones is a 45-minute drive north of the Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo airport, you don’t need to rent a car. To get there, skip the official airport taxi directly to Troncones (about $70); instead, take one to the center of Zihuatanejo, then negotiate the fare (around $30) to Troncones in a regular taxi. And once you’re there, you can take the “collectivo,” a truck that picks up passengers along the main road, for about 40 cents a ride.
