There’s no Uber in Guerrero, but taxis are generally safe and efficient if hired at the airport or at your hotel. If you are traveling to Troncones from the airport (ZIH) and want to take a taxi, you will need to use the official airport taxis. They accept most credit cards. Expect to pay about $65.
Getting back to Zihuatanejo from Troncones, the hotel works with a couple of local taxi drivers who they trust and use often. The ride to Zihuatanejo costs about $40.
You can easily rent a car at the airport. However, be aware that if you plan to use a GPS map on your phone to get to Troncones, you will likely encounter sporadic dead zones in your cellular connection, which could make it difficult to spot your exit.
If you do drive and your car breaks down, be on the lookout for the Los Angeles Verdes (The Green Angels), which are a fleet of green mechanics trucks with bilingual crews who patrol the highways daily helping stranded motorists. They don’t charge for their labor. They are paid by the government and won’t accept money except for the cost of parts, if necessary. They can also dispatch a vehicle if you call 55-5250-8221, 4637, or 4644.
