What a place! We got what we wanted!

Cara, Strathroy - (trip to Mazatlán Sin. Mexico)

The RUI Emerald Bay in Mazatlan was amazing!!! What a place. We got what we wanted. Secluded and quiet, more north of the city, not in the thick of it.  Fabulous beach, nice walks every day. 

We did only one small excursion, a city tour on our last day.  We took only casual clothes and didn't even go to any a la cartes.  We ate away from the resort 2x, just short walk up the beach to a small plaza.  Also, several days we walked up to the plaza for coffee in the morning at The Looney Bean....much better coffee, specialty types and baked goods. The buffet restaurant at the resort was great food and great selection.

The resort is wonderful, in the fact that all rooms are ocean view (upper floors, above the trees), the beach is stunning. The staff were also exceptional, always cleaning and the resort was spotless. The Riu is the last resort to the north, so very very quiet. Even with the elevator work going on, it was zero bother. 

I would return here any time. We met one couple who were on their 4th trip to the Riu. The ocean was rough, but it was the time of year, their winter and high tide 2x a day. This doesn't bother us, as we are pool people anyways. Thank you, Monica, as always, and would love a return here for sure.

I want to go to Mazatlan
