Dear Freddie, 

 Hello from the El Cid Resorts in beautiful Mazatlan!  I just returned with 15 agents from western Canada, who totally enjoyed 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 Tourist Bureau/Mazatlan Hotel Association for their generosity and hospitality!  Also, thank you to our other host properties, Pacific Palace (along with Star Palace, 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

On the FAM, the agents have had lots of time to explore Mazatlan by enjoying a number of local excursions - a City Tour, Copala/Concordia tour, Deer Island excursion, El Rosario magical city tour and exploring the Teacapan eco-wetlands.  They also had time for shopping and enjoying the host properties.
Copala is a sleepy, (formerly) silver mining village in the mountains
A city tour of Mazatlan is always a must
The cathedral and renovated old town squares are beautiful
Cliff diving and the long malecon (boardwalk) are fun to watch and explore
Exploring Deer Island is fun day of snorkeling, kayaking, wildlife viewing and relaxing
The magical town El Rosario is fun to explore and view the church and gold altarpiece
Exploring Teacapan estuary is a bird watcher's paradise
