We just returned from Castilla at El Cid this past week. We lucked out with the weather, only one semi rainy day. It is very hot/humid in September, but if your in the pool/ocean all is great. We had the elite package which I would recommend to everyone. The upgrades are well worth it.. Shrimp is the best I've ever tasted. Also with the Elite you can use all 4 hotel amenities as well as restaurants. Our favorite was at the Marina. Luis pours a mean Mexican coffee! Rooms were spacious and the balcony was fantastic for viewing sunsets. We did not do the tequila tour, but heard from guests we met that it is one not to miss. We went over to Deer Island for some banana boat rides and snorkeling. Lunch was served there, the boat ride over was fantastic - we were able to see the 2nd largest lighthouse in the world from the Sea of Cortez (glad we didn't have to climb that mountain in the heat) The aquarium will be adding a shark tank and also a penguin exhibit next year - we saw it without that, and it was pretty good. ElCid offers tranquility as well as much nightlife as you would want.
