Dear David,     


This month's newsletter is coming to you a day early due to the Canada Day holiday on Wednesday, July 1st.

Happy Canada Day!

We are so lucky to live in such a great country like Canada. I hope you get to celebrate Canada Day by spending some quality time with friends and family.

So how's your summer been going anyway? Mine has been pretty good so far. I'm gearing up for a busy next few months, as I'm coming into my busiest time of the year with all the trade shows, golf tournaments, road-shows, product launches, etc. Hopefully I'll see YOU at an upcoming event!

Dixie bathWell, it's been over a month now since Dixie had her run-in with a skunk in the front yard of our condo. And can you believe I can STILL smell the skunk on her???

It's not as bad now, but when I get down close to give her kisses I can really notice it. And this is even after numerous baths, which she hates by the way. It's always such a big production!

The good thing is that she doesn't seem to notice the smell anymore. At least it doesn't seem to bother her at all. Hopefully by the time I send the next newsletter in a month from now I'll be able to tell you that the smell is gone. Fingers crossed!

Anyways, have a great month. I hope you sell LOTS of Mexico. And don't forget, if you need anything for Real Resorts, El Cid Resorts, or Best Day, I'm just a phone call or email away. My job is to help you close the sale.

El Cid Resorts

In last month's newsletter you may remember that I featured a virtual site inspection video of Real Resorts. THANK YOU for all of the great comments about that - I'm glad you liked it!

Well, now it's El Cid Resort's turn. All the footage from this video was taken just this past May when I was in Cancun and Mazatlan on site inspections. There are actually two videos; one for the Mazatlan properties and the other is Riviera Maya. Enjoy!

Air Canada Vacations

One of the most fascinating aspects of travel is the opportunity to explore and connect with local culture. During my recent vacation in Cancun, I did just that...and in style!
  spazul logo
I experienced Temazcal at the Royal Cancun's Spazul, and highly recommend it be added to the "must do" list on your next vacation.
Temazcal is an ancient Aztec sweat bath ritual which helps detoxify the body and mind. Conducted by an experienced guide, who uses local herbs grown in the Spazul garden, the experience helps you appreciate and reconnect with the simplicity of nature. It has a deeply calming and therapeutic effect. It is followeacv logod by a deep tissue massage under the moonlight.                           

I recommend  booking your session at sunset, overlooking the beautiful caribbean sea, and listening to the waves. The only bad thing about it is that it eventually will come to an end.
This amazing spa experience lasts approximately 2 hours and is guaranteed to make you feel like a brand new person!

Real Resort display pic Real Resorts Window Displays
Free to Good Homes

Is your office located in a high-traffic area? Maybe you're in a mall or on a busy street? Perhaps you would like to do a Mexico-themed window display for the upcoming season?

Well, I can help you out.

I have a very limited number of gorgeous Real Resorts displays that I am willing to loan out. They are similar to the one in the photo. They are pretty big - I'd say about 7ft tall.

What a great way to make a lasting impression!

Please let me know if you would like to borrow one. As I said, I only have a limited quantity so this will be on a first come basis.

The only thing I ask in return, is that you send me a picture of the display in your office window, because I might want to include it in the next newsletter.

Lady of Guadalupe Chapel Photo Another First
by Real Resorts

Real Resort's Our Lady of Guadalupe Chapel is the only consecrated Catholic chapel on the grounds of a Cancun resort. It was dedicated in April 2009.

The chapel offers stunning views of the Caribbean, and it is available for Weddings, First Communions, and other religious ceremonies.

It really is a spectacular setting at the Gran Caribe Real in Cancun.
