Quote: My annual vacation was more domestic this year, so we chose Arizona. Our first stop was to visit friends in Phoenix and then go off to Tucson for 4 nights. Not much was planned, so all the side trips were somewhat spontaneous.

Coyote Moon Health Resort and Spa is a truly wonderful experience which began months before our actual arrival. While they are gay owned and operated, they "warmly welcome all open-minded individuals." And welcomed we were. Prior to our booking our 4 night stay, we looked through their extensive and informative website (www.coyotemoonresort.com).
