found it and made it part of the tequila factory tour. The cost is about $400
U.S. per villa, which includes all meals, domestic drinks and all activities.
Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay: The resort sits on its own private beach on 20
acres overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It is billed as "away from it all--but not
too far away." The property is 20 minutes north of the original Pueblo Bonito
Resort and beyond the end of the bus line. It is designated as an all-suites
resort. There are about 250 suites, divided into ten independent ocean front
buildings. All suites have kitchenettes, terraces or balconies and all have an
ocean view. Two large pools with swim-up bar, a large spa, tennis courts, three
outdoor Jacuzzis, and a gourmet restaurant add to the charm. Shuttle service
is available every half-hour to Pueblo Bonito Mazatlán in the Golden Zone.
Double occupancy rates are from $140 to $350 U.S. per night depending on
the time of year, room size, and location. They have a gate and you must call
them 24 hours in advance to be admitted. Telephone 989-0525. If you like iso-
lation and exclusivity, this is the place for you.
The Inn at Mazatlán: My personal favorite because I have been a timeshare
owner since 1985, and have never regretted it. This timeshare also rents rooms.
Located in the Golden Zone, just south of the El Cid Mega resort, The Inn
recently added a tower, and a second, larger swimming pool. The owner is
from Salt Lake City, Utah, and until recently, has been an owner in residence.
Its main selling point is that most employees have been there for years, and the
service is simply the best. The beautiful Teresa Inglis-McFarland handles time-
share resales, and she is most helpful whenever a guest has a problem. The
popular Papagayo Restaurant is located on the grounds and has an excellent
breakfast buffet. Double occupancy rates run from $120-$180 U.S. You can
telephone them at 913-4151.
The Inn has a qualified activities' director, who supervises activities for the
young and young at heart. There is a fantastic gift shop in the lobby.
Pueblo Bonito Mazatlán: This complex is among the most beautiful in
Mazatlán. The suites have colorful Mexican décor, and gorgeous tile kitchens. A
good-size beach and large swimming pool, surrounded by palapas and umbrel-
las accommodate the most discerning sun worshiper. Breakfast in the open-air
café, and dinner at Angelos, one of the best Italian restaurants in Mazatlán,
makes the trip more appealing. Double occupancy rates are approximately $158
U.S. for junior suites and $193 U.S. for a one-bedroom suite in November, and
$182 U.S. for junior suites and $215 U.S. for a one-bedroom suite in April.
