Hello ta friends. We are traveling to Mazatlan for the 2nd time in Jan. 2013. We did a time share exchange and are staying at the El Cid Marina Beach resort. Is this the same resort I am reading about on here that is referred to as El Cid Marina? I am confused and have a few questions. First, the confirmation paperwork I received says there is a beach "on site" but I read on here you take a shuttle? Last time we stayed at a time share resort across from Muchies and it was a great location. We walked to the Gold Strand for lunch and shopping, then onto the Mega Store. Yes, that was a lot of walking but we enjoy stopping along the way to check out the things you don't see when you are whizzing by in a taxi, or as in your town, a pulmania. (sp) Where is El Cid located as compared to Pueblo Bonita? On what site can I find a good map on Mazatlan? I think that should do it for now. Thanks to all who are willing to help.
