Dear Dave,


First off, we just wanted to say how much we enjoyed working with you in 2010. Thank you for a great year! We know that you receive a ton of emails every day so we really do truly appreciate the fact that you take the time to read our monthly newsletter. THANK YOU!


It's hard to believe that we started the newsletter two and a half years ago. Due to the fact that we have such a large territory (all of Canada) we knew it was impossible to physically visit your office as much as we would like to, but we wanted to be able to touch-base with you with on a regular basis and we also wanted a way to communicate all the latest news and promotions.


camping trip pic 2008The very first test newsletter was sent out on August 01, 2008 to about 400 travel agents. As you can see from the picture from that first newsletter, Dixie has been a part of the newsletter from day one. I've always said that she has to earn her keep somehow! LOL


Anyways, the newsletter has grown tremendously and now it's delivered to 6,000 Travel Agents across Canada every month. And we are very happy to say that our "open rate" is over double the industry-average, which leads us to believe that we are doing something right.


We absolutely love what we do and we certainly feel lucky to be the Canadian representatives for Real Resorts, El Cid Resorts and Canto del Sol. All 3 are wonderful companies that offer quality product.


And here we are in 2011. Wow, time flies when you're having fun, eh? We think it's going to be an amazing year and we are very excited to be continuing to work with you.


All the best and please remember that YOU are the reason we are here. Our job is to work with you so that you are comfortable selling Real Resorts, El Cid Resorts and Canto del Sol. We are here to help you close the sale. So please don't be a stranger. If you need help we are only a phone call or email away.


All the best to you and your family for a happy and prosperous 2011!

Real Resort Wedding Fam
Real Resorts hosted to back-to-back Wedding Fams last month.Travel Agents from all across North America travelled to Cancun/Riviera Maya to participate and learn more about Real Resorts fabulous wedding product.

The Travel Agents attended a mock wedding, did site inspections of the Real Resorts properties and even got to meet the professional onsite wedding coordinators. It was a fantastic opportunity for agents to become more familiar with Real Resorts and to meet the awesome wedding team.

Real Wedding Group

We have received really great feedback from the Travel Agents, with many saying it was the best fam they had ever been on...

This has been one of the best fams ever and for many reasons. One is getting to know Real Resorts first-hand; they have treated us like Royalty. The food is superb and the chocolate martinis are even better!! One big difference between this property and others is sincerity. I now have my new favourite resorts!

RRMembers Commission Booster

Have you signed up with the RRMembers Commission Booster program yet???

All you have to do is sign up and register your bookings (fast & easy) and you will get a cheque sent to you every time you book Real Resorts (and that even goes for bookings made with your favourite tour operator).  It really is that simple. And every time you book Real Resorts another cheque will be issued.

Exciting and Colourful Carnival in Mazatlan

MZT Carnival PicMazatlan boasts one of the largest Carnival celebrations in Mexico.  It's also one of the oldest, as it  has been celebrated for more than 100 years.  It is a spectacular affair that captures the seaside city and holds it hostage for five days and nights each late winter or early spring.  In 2011, Carnival will be celebrated from March 3rd to 8th.


Mazatlan's carnival is truly a family-oriented celebration, as there are poetry contents, literary awards, and ballet in the baseball stadium. Several children are elected as diminutive king and queen to reign over the annual awards presentations. Clowns stomp down the street atop peg-egged stilts. Adorable kids wearing grease paint and animal costumes snake down the avenue in conga lines. Marching bands rattle and hum.

Extended families attend rock and ska concerts at venues throughout the city and for many families the highlight of the week is the grand parade.  Parties are held for four consecutive nights up and down the malecon.  This annual event has to be on your "must-see" list!


Of course, any of the four El Cid Resorts are perfect place to stay while enjoying the sites and sounds of Carnival!
