Spring Travel 2008 - Mexico and Central America

The poor, bruised dollar. It’s taken such a pummeling lately. But that means little in Troncones, Mexico, a beach hamlet 144 miles northwest of Acapulco, where the off season begins May 1, making it that much easier (and $50 cheaper) to book one of three solar-powered casitas at Casa Viva (from $125; casavivatroncones.com). Bodysurf the break right in front of the hotel, or buggy fifteen miles through palm-grove paradise to try long-boarding in La Saladita.
