Dear Dave, 

Hello from the El Cid Resorts in beautiful Mazatlan!  I'm down here with 20 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!  Also, thank you to our other host properties, Pacific Palace (along with Oceano Palace and Luna Palace).


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.

Dave Emery, Sales Manager, Canada, El Cid Resorts

Lidwina: "Mazatlan is a place to remember.  Pulmonias, delicious seafood, the malecon and beaches - it has so much to give an definitely is a destination I can share stories about.  El Cid's attention to details and thoughtfulness to its guest are impressive.  The Elite plan has so much value and the Elite lounge is amazing.  I love the smiles from the staff and guests on all it's properties."

Linda:  "After 30 years since my last visit, Mazatlan has grown and we were pleasantly surprised.  El Cid has grown as well.  For location, I would prefer the El Cid properties in the center of the Golden Zone (Castilla Beach, Granada and El Moro).  The food was amazing!"
