About the Owners

Ray and Linda Wright grew up in England, where Ray, worked as a trained Stone Mason and Linda, worked in accounting. Bored with their lives they took a holiday in Spain, where they met a couple from Vancouver Island, British Columbia, who inspired them to immigrate to Canada.

In Canada, they were blessed with a wonderful Son and Daughter. Rays profession as a Stone Mason thrived as his artistic skills were being recognized. As a man who loves to work he was getting bored and needed a challenge. In 1990, Ray and Linda, purchased a large commercial property and turned it into a very successful Garden Centre where twenty years quickly passed them by. They sold their business and with the same  sense of adventure still in both of them, they were ready for a change.

After years of hard work and successfully selling their business they took a trip to Mexico. Ray and Linda, stumbled into the city of Mazatlán. They immediately fell in love with the place and the people. Though they had been to many Mexican cities on holiday, Mazatlán, struck them like no other city – and they were hooked.

They found their Hacienda right on the Pacific Ocean and shortly thereafter – with that same sense of adventure that brought them there – they discovered their dream to transform the Hacienda into a private beachfront Bed & Breakfast. Just 18 months later  El Sol La Vida was up and running. Now, Ray and Linda, finally feel settled and are able to share their passion for Mazatlán with everyone!

With wanderlust parents it is no wonder their daughter Leanne, had the bug to travel.  After exploring Europe on a motor bike, working and living in Greece, Leanne’s dream of owing her own Beach Bar Restaurant had come true. Her dream transpired in to Surf’s Up Café that she creatively designed and built. With vision and positive vibrant energy she single handily created this unique beachfront eatery that serves a wide variety of gourmet meals, speciality coffees and cocktails. Her passion for cooking is displayed in her monthly changing menus – and has enjoyed great success since it’s opening in November of 2011.

Ray, Linda and Leanne look forward to making your stay at EL SOL LA VIDA a very happy memory of a great holiday!
