Dear Dave,
While we wait for travel to safely pick up again, we are tying to take advantage of exploring local hikes. I certainly hope that everyone is able to get out for some socially distanced walks and hikes. It is even a good way to catch up with friends on the right (social distanced) hikes.

Freddie has been researching and doing some great hikes recently. In fact, he also started his own YouTube channel "Freddie Got Furloughed" to share short reviews of his local hikes. You can check it out HERE.


When we go on hikes together, Freddie concentrates on his video reviews, and I concentrate on my photography and digital art.
(My Canada Day tribute from my VanDusen Garden pics.)
I hope you have some fun, productive and healthy things to occupy your time, while we wait.

El Cid Resorts is happy to announce that they have opened all of their resorts (CUN, MZT, COZ) as of July 1, in accordance with all local and federal requirements and their own "Always Committed" program.

"Always Committed" is clearly explained in this 88 second "client friendly" video HERE.

The "Always Committed" Protocol Program, will help protect the well-being and health of our guests, employees and their families against COVID-19, by implementing rigorous protocols in quality and hygiene processes endorsed by Preverisk and Cristal, world-renowned companies for certifying the most important hotel chains in the world.
HERE are some of the new standards we are implementing to offer safe vacation experiences to our guests in our properties in Mazatlán, Cancún-Riviera Maya and Cozumel.
A few of the hygiene protocols include:
-        All staff will wear masks, gloves and when necessary protective masks.
-        Physical distancing is enforced in all areas.
-        Placement of antibacterial gel in all "guest contact" areas.

We want you to be able to sell any of the El Cid Resorts properties with confidence.
