El Cid Vacations Club reviews that when traveling this summer with your family, it is important to make sure that your destination is suitable for both young children and adults. In order to have a stellar family vacation, check out Mazatlán and all that is has to offer. This top spot was named as one of the top destinations in Mexico for children, as it has a plethora of marine life in the form of aquariums, live shows, and exhibits.
Every year on June 1st, Dia de la Marina, also known in English as Navy Day, is celebrated. The holiday was made to honor and thank all those who have served in the Mexican Navy and dedicated themselves to the protection of their country by serving on the sea. El Cid Vacations Club reviews the special event which was held in Cozumel this year to celebrate the holiday and distinguish those who have served.
This year, former and current naval service personnel and onlookers braved the rain and gathered at Esplanade de la Bandera to celebrate these individuals on the event’s 72nd anniversary. One of the highlights of the event was the speech given by Commander Marco Antonio Elias Cruz Barrita of the Cozumel Naval Sector. In his talk, Commander Barrita discussed the significance of naval service and recognized those who have served for their commitment to Mexico. Altogether, this past year’s event was a success and truly honored those that it was dedicated to.
El Cid Vacations Club reviews this event because they know that the historical ties of Cozumel as a coastal city to the Mexican navy make this a very important event for many in the area. The event is highlighted because it also allows many people to offer their blessings and thanks to the brave individuals who have served in the navy. Though this year’s event has passed, vacationers in Cozumel are encouraged to attend Dia de la Marina in future years to experience its historical and cultural significance.
With great weather and unbeatable beaches to compliment it, Mazatlán is the perfect place to visit in Mexico and has a great deal of sites with cultural and historical value. El Cid Vacations Club wishes to discuss particular area to visit for enhancing the travel experience and finding plenty of amazing picture taking opportunities.
The Mazatlán Cathedral can be found at the center of the old city. Built from 1875 to 1899, the construction process was understandably a long process in which intricate designs are preserved to this very day. One of the most notable features is the French-built pipe organ that was played for the first time in 1899. Visitors are encouraged to make donations to ensure that the cathedral can continue to be preserved for future generations.
El Cid Vacations Club understands very well that vacationers will want to shop for special items that are unique to the area. This can be accomplished with a visit to the Mazatlán Central Market.

El Cid Vacations Club Reviews has yet another great year of reviews. Our excellent customer service shines in what we do and our valued guest’s reviews demonstrate that. Check out the following review to see for yourself:
“My wife and I stayed at the Marina El CID from November 16 to Dec. 01, 2012 and from check-in to check-out we were treated like ROYALTY!
The resort took care of the wonderful transportation from the airport (mid-day and air conditioned) and after a seamless check-in and issuance of our elite AI bracelets by the ever-so-helpful Rogelio, we were taken to our 2 BR suite by the amazing porter “Israel” on the 3rd floor which both overlooked the pool and the marina with a spectacular 200 degree view! What a helpful and friendly person! Our concierge “Jorge” was always ready to please whenever we needed something, required a reservation or just needed to ask a question. Dining was amazing with a different twist on flavours every meal… and you have not lived until you have a Mexican coffee prepared by “Xavier” (a work of art!) who is the go-to guy in the resort for food, drink or specially prepared items of any kind.
Senior staff members Jacob and Ernesto can and will move mountains for you and provide you with a vacation experience second to none.
Pool activities were plentiful with 2-3 hours of volleyball every day with people from all over the world and Anarely, Arlete and Mariza provided exercises, activities and wonderfully enchanting conversation with genuine smiles at all times. Pool service was OUTSTANDING and Miguel and Abraham are so nice and provide such excellent service that we wanted to adopt the both of them and Anarely and Arlete!
If you go in late November, we participated in 2 turtle releases (one at the El Moro and the other at Marina) which was a highlight of our trip.
When we were there, the president of Mexico arrived for a stay and the staff ensured that there was a little disruption for the guest as possible. As well, the resort garnered “the cleanest resort in Mexico” distinction during our stay – and they deserve it! Amazing meals, plentiful sunshine, amazing scenery, fireworks (this is a major wedding destination) and an ideal location are all tied together by the most wonderful people, staff and service. I have no idea what others say about safety in Mexico….we walked the beaches, the town and resorts of EL CID in Mazatlan and never had an incident of any kind…. our home town of Vancouver is far more dangerous! We will be back to sun, service and smiles again this November… but this time for 3 weeks! Thank you EL CID Marina!”
As shown in that review, we ensure our staff is up to speed on providing 110% customer service. Next time you are traveling in Mexico, check out El Cid Vacations Club Reviews and you will not be disappointed.
El Cid Vacations Club Reviews are better than ever with visitors highlighting many of our amenities. Check out this 5 star review from an El Cid Visitor:
“It’s been 4 years since I vacationed here but it was outstanding. It’s a little bit down from the main hotel area, which only makes it more relaxing. The suites were immaculately clean, and all of the facilities were also. We were there on one of their busiest weekends (Easter) and had no problems with our rooms or service. The staff was very accomodating and there is a wide range of activities to enjoy. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone.”
