Coronado Springs is going through a transition period that will make the convention resort more enticing to upscale clientele. For several years, however, this underappreciated resort has been a hidden gem, or guilty pleasure if you prefer, of mine. The three sections of the resort that house accommodations offer a three very distinct environments to stay and play in. I find myself regularly drawn to the Ranchos section that is filled with haciendas, pueblos, arroyos (or dried river beds), hitching rails, paw and footprints, lanterns, boulders, and a broad assortment of cacti. It feels very much like sets pulled directly from Zorro, and maybe that’s precisely what I love about it. Keeping it brief today, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves about the area’s beauty.
