Dear Freddie, 


Hello from the El Cid Resorts in beautiful Mazatlan!  I'm down here with 24 agents from western Canada, who are totally enjoying the city, the excursions, the beaches, the food, and of course the 4 El Cid Resorts.  Mazatlán, known as the "Pearl of the Pacific," is located on the Pacific Ocean, and affords guests amazing views and the authentic spirit of México.  


Thank you to WestJet Vacations, El Cid Resorts, Pronatours and the Mazatlan Hotel Association for their generosity and hospitality!


Watch for future FAM opportunities in our monthly DETM newsletter.  Let me know when I can schedule an office training for you, or a private webinar on any of our fine properties.

On the FAM, the agents have had lots of time to explore Mazatlan - the renovated downtown area on a city tour, spend the day at nearby Deer Island, experience nearby villages or Puerta de Canoas and El Quelite, taste local blue agave (tequilla).

Ashley - Mazatlan is a really charming, authentic Mexican City.  I loved it!


Candace - El Cid and Mazatlan - definitely my surprise trip!  I was surprised by the great location of the (El Cid Castilla Beach) resort in the middle of the activity.  It felt comfortable, and the cleanliness and service were good.


Correna - The Marina El Cid was my favourite.  The pools, the beach and the staff were fantastic!


Deane - It's more than the sun that makes this a "warm destination."  It's the hearts of the people of Mazatlan that radiate kindness and sincere pride that make this experience memorable.
