The room block at the Castilla Hotel is now full. However we have set aside some additional rooms at the Granada Hotel across the street. The Granada is part of the El Cid “complex” and the rates are all-inclusive (all food and drinks are included, as are meeting breaks and socials. Rates are based on room occupancy and are outlined below.
Once these rooms are booked, we can no longer guarantee the negotiated rate with the hotel and any further reservations will need to be made outside the WDAFS room block (which may be more expensive). So don’t delay and make your reservations asap.
To make your reservation please call Jesus Gaxiola at +52 (669) 989-69-69 ext: 3222 or email jgaxiola [at] elcid.com.mx, and use the group code “Western Division American Fisheries Society“. If you have any issues making your reservation, please contact Western Division President, Pam Sponholtz at longfin [at] infomagic.net.
