Well, you did it.
You survived another Canadian winter. YAY!!!
April has arrived and it is officially Spring. The
weather is getting warmer, the days are getting
longer, and the mosquitoes are on their way!!! LOL
I was in YYZ last week and guess what street my
hotel was on...
I thought that was appropriate!!! :)
And speaking of Dixie, I've been receiving a lot of
complaints that Dixie hasn't appeared in the
newsletter for the past 2 months. Well, what can I
say, she's been a little bit camera-shy.
But I told her that she has to start earning her
keep, so for your viewing enjoyment click
HERE to watch "Dixie vs the Vacuum Cleaner".
I hope you have a great month. If you need anything
you know how to get hold of us.
Chat with you soon,

All-Inclusive Resort Chain (HINT HINT)
I had a great
dinner in Montreal recently when I was in town doing
El Cid sales calls. It's a place called
You go in, and eat totally in the dark. It was pitch
black, and you coudn't even bring in cell phones.
The waiters are blind or site impaired. You order
from the menu before you go to your seats in the
dark area, or you have the option of letting them
surprise you for all your courses. We voted to be
surprised. It was an amazing experience that we
really enjoyed. I'd totally go back there with
someone who hasn't experienced it. Two thumbs up!
Here's a picture from Dave's evening at O'Noir.
This month we are happy to welcome Atlantic Canada
agents to the newsletter. YAY!!!
Dave and I both got back from separate trips to the
Maritimes last month. I was in YYT and Dave was in
YHZ and YQM.
We had heard that people in the Atlantic provinces
are extremely warm and friendly and from our
experiences those rumours are definitely true! It
was a true pleasure meeting you all and hopefully
we'll see you again real soon.
In the meantime, if you need anything don't hesitate
to contact Freddie for anything regarding Real
Resorts and Dave for anything regarding El Cid
for Your Office
Do you have a TV/DVD in your office? Would you like
your very own copy of the Real Resorts DVD to play
and entice clients? Just send me a quick email (email@example.com)
and I'll mail one out to you ASAP.
And yes, it is programmed for auto-loop, which means
that you can let it run all day if you want and it
will keep repeating!!!
BTW, I just finished watching it and it is REALLY
good. It shows all 5 of the Real Resorts properties
and even has some catchy music! :)
Non-Stop Summer Service
Westjet is offering summer non-stop flights to
Mazatlan from Vancouver and Calgary gateways starting
in May. That's great news. Thanks Westjet!
Vancouver to Mazatlan:
Calgary to Mazatlan:
And don't forget easy connections can be made from
other Canadian cities.
Personally, I think those Tuesday flights via Calgary
will be great for the honeymoon market. The couple can
get married on Saturday, have time to enjoy friends
and family for the gift-opening and then off to
beautiful Mazatlan for their dream honeymoon!
And it goes without saying that we think the best
place to stay in Mazatlan is of course
El Cid Resorts.

I know we talk about this in every newsletter, but
shockingly there are still many agents who haven't

Wedding at El Cid Resorts"
El Resorts Testimonial
Karen & Les of Saskatchewan
Les and I would like to thank you and all of the staff
at the Marina El Cid for a wonderful wedding and stay.
We appreciate the work that you and your fellow
Our wedding was perfect, the kids club was so much
fun our kids only wanted to be there, the food was
incredible and Alex the photographer did an amazing
job on our wedding photo's. (Too good of a job - we
ened up buying all of them!!)
We also really enjoyed shopping and visiting Puerto
Morelos. What a
beautiful village filled with friendly people. It was
a nice change from
the high pressure sales and craziness of Cancun or
Playa del Carmen!
We recommend that anyone looking for a great place for
a family vacation or destination wedding definitely go
to the Marina El Cid!
