"My husband and I are so happy to live in El Cid’s residential community and have felt a true sense of community for over ten years. My neighbors are a lovely mix of nationals and internationals. We live together in harmony as a family and celebrate birthdays, holidays and regular impromptu potlucks surrounded by gorgeous gardens – it is a secret paradise here.
My children visited over the holidays and they thoroughly enjoyed the Friday Art Walks through the Central Historic District along with all the celebratory festivities taking place. Mazatlán, is a truly magical place." Joyce González, México
"For 15 years, my husband I have come down to Mazatlán regularly throughout the winter months, as owners in El Cid’s community. We originally came to México in search of sunshine and while we have travelled throughout the country we have come to love Mazatlán – nothing else compares. It has beautiful beaches, affordable living, and the best climate! When we first moved here we didn’t realize what a bonus the warm and friendly people would be. We celebrate Christmas dinners and birthdays together, we enjoy our daily walks through the golf course, we all enjoy Happy Hour around the pool every day at 4 pm – what can be better than that? And we have regular visitors who have come to appreciate this city as much as we do." Margaret Bohne, Prince George, BC
"My husband and I have two children and we live in the El Cid. I find it a very
secure and very good neighborhood to raise children. My kids are golfers, and
we live right on the golf course, so we are very fortunate that we can walk
out and play golf any time."
Judy Sanchez, Canada
"I would recommend El Cid to anyone looking for a place, not only for older
people that are retired but younger people, too. Because I think they can
find plenty of interesting things to do here. They can fish, they can play
golf, and they can play tennis, to name a few."
Boris Makowecki, Edmonton, AB
"We bought a lot and then a year or two later we built a house. All this time
my wife has called this a paradise and she wouldn't leave it. When we went up
to the States for a couple of weeks she said, “I'd like to get back to
Mazatlán, because that is by far my favorite place. It’s where I really want
"We have extremely good security here in El Cid, with about 45 people under
the security group. They take very good care in making us feel safe. We
haven’t had any robberies or problems that subdivisions without security
William Smith, California
"I looked in many places and chose El Cid. I like the atmosphere here. It is a
blend of Mexicans, Canadians, and Americans, so it’s a wonderful place to
live. You have the Angela Peralta Theater, which is a classic historical opera
house, we have wonderful art here, the beautiful historical center, and first
Jim Story, Las Vegas, NV
"We bought a lot, worked with an excellent architect here, and had our house
built. We had many lots to choose from. We weren’t looking for houses to
buy, we were looking at lots so we could build our dream home."
"El Cid was an area where we could purchase property and actually live with
people who were natives -- as supposed to being in an entirely gringo
community that was isolated. Mazatlán has relevant stable economy and, most
importantly, the inhabitants of Mazatlán are extraordinarily friendly and
receptive to our being here. We felt wanted from the beginning."
John Brown, Miami, FL
"Mazatlán is a beautiful port city. There are also many cultural events and a
lot of things to do. There are many areas outside the city that are very
beautiful to see, and a lot of activities on the ocean as well as on land,
where there several colonial cities to visit."
"What I particularly like in El Cid is the wildlife. The birds are fantastic,
the iguanas, and the turtles that live in the ponds. We have raccoons and
other different animals to watch, so you don't have to go very far to keep
yourself entertained. And the golf course has a lot of green areas and open
space for walking. I'm also a tennis player, and there is a lot of tennis
here. We have tennis groups going on all year: Mexican, Canadian, and
Carol Sinclair, Vancouver, BC
"We are only about three blocks from the beach and about a half block from
the marina, which makes it really great for anything we want to do."
Cheryl Makowecki, Edmonton, AB
"The El Cid Marina Hotel is what attracted us to the El Cid Community. On one
of our visits, we stayed in the hotel, and we appreciated the architecture,
the services that were offered, and the quality of that experience."
Kimberly Brown, Seattle, WA
