"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."
"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 class restaurants."
"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 to be.”
"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."
