Dear Dave,
Well Halloween has just passed.  What did you go as?

I was traveling this year, so much less creative that usual, but here are some of my favourites from years past.
Note that as part of this month's photo contest (below), I'm asking entrants to submit their favourite Halloween costume of theirs (from this year or years past...)

Here are some of Sandy's favourite costumes of past years.

 Happy Selling as the sun season heats up (and the weather cools down).

What is the maximum number of guests in Honua Kai's spacious 3-bedroom (3 bathroom) suites?  (Remember that you may need to special request these suites from our tour operator partners.)  
Since this month's photo contest answer is so easy, I'm going to ask you to also submit one of your favourite Halloween photos (of you) from this year, or past years as a tie-breaker.  I'll publish the winning entry in next month's newsletter.

ElCidEl Cid Resorts - Riviera Maya Beaches (seaweed update)
There has been a lot of talk about the condition of the beaches in the Riviera Maya, some with a lot of seaweed.  While there have been days that we have had to clean the beaches several times at the Hotel Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort, here are some recent pictures taken at our beautiful beach.
In addition, you can check out the Puerto Morales beach Cam HERE.

Don't miss this great list of things that your clients can do while they are enjoying their stay at one of the 4 El Cid properties in Mazatlan.

Honua Kai Resort & Spa - 3 Bedroom - 3 Bath Suites
Honua Kai lanai
Let's face it, that the last thing people want to do on holiday, is spend a lot of time in the hotel/condo. Well, that is, unless the condo is huge and incredibly luxurious. Honua Kai Resort & Spa was built from the ground up to go beyond what your clients would expect.
To begin with, all of Honua Kai's accommodations are suites - from a roomy Studio Suite with approximately 595 sq. ft. to a palatial 2,650 sq. ft. Specialty Suite. Each suite features a private bathroom for each bedroom and so many more unexpected luxuries. 

Remember that for the spacious 3 bedroom suites, you need to special request them from our tour operator partners or from Honua Kai directly! You won't see them listed on our partners online booking engines. These large suites are perfect for 3 couples traveling together or and extended family (max 8 people).

Here is a summary of the sizes of the Honua Kai suites:
