Flights arrive daily at Ixtapa / Zihuatanejo International Airport. Car rentals can be made in advance, or directly upon arrival outside the gate. For your convenience, there are four rental kiosks that offer competitive rates.
Taxi service is also available. The cost of your transport from the airport to Casa de Oro in Troncones should be confirmed at the taxi stand inside the airport to ensure the standard price.
We recommend renting your own transportation. This will give you the most freedom to explore the area and will also allow you to stop at La Comercial Mexicana, the primary grocery store in Zihuatanejo, as well as the central mercado, a traditional farmers market, before you drive to the villa.
The trip from the airport to Casa de Oro takes about 30 minutes.
You will be flying into the Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo International Airport. The airport code is ZIH. There are daily international flights arriving from Houston, Los Angeles and Mexico City with connections from almost every major airport in the US and Canada. During high season (November – April), there are additional flight options from Denver, Phoenix and Toronto.
Thanks to a newly constructed highway, travel times have greatly decreased between the airport and Troncones – and are much easier! Highway 200 begins at the airport so you are already on the road you need to be on! Drive north through Zihuatanejo and towards Ixtapa. As you near Ixtapa, there will be a fork, allowing you to continue into Ixtapa (through a sign that says “Bienvenidos a Ixtapa”) or to veer right on towards Lazaro Cardenas. Follow the right-hand lane towards Lazaro Cardenas.
Continue following signs to Lazaro Cardenas for about 22 kilometers. Watch for a large sign for Troncones to take your exit. The new exit has a special pullout-style turn lane that basically makes a U-turn so that you can drive into town and down to the beach.
Follow the road into Troncones (past a Pemex gas station). There will be many signs point the way to the beach. The road will lead you directly to the ocean. When you hit the “T” intersection at the beach, turn left and continue to the end of the road. Casa de Oro is the last house on the right before the bridge.
