Eva Longoria, Star of ABC's "Desperate Housewives" and new beau Eduardo Cruz arrived in Mazatlan for a well-deserved getaway this past Thursday. A source told People magazine the trip went exceptionally well for the happy couple. Longoria and Cruz – singer and younger brother of Penelope Cruz – were spotted enjoying the beach as well as the cultural sites.

The actress and her Spaniard boyfriend took a city tour, which included the 150-year-old Cathedral, the Angela Peralta Theater and the fine arts school, among other local landmarks. The pair took a romantic stroll around the historic center, where they admired colonial architecture of the area. The sun welcomed the celebrity guests by showing off one of the most beautiful sunsets of the season – visible to them from the 7 km boardwalk.

"Easter is the busiest travel period for Mazatlan," said Julio Birrueta, Spokesperson for the Mazatlan Tourism Trust. "People travel from all over North America for the holiday. We were beyond thrilled to learn that Eva Longoria was one of our distinguished guests. It is great that she and Mr. Cruz took the time to see the sights and were also able to relax away from the crowds at Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay hotel." Longoria and Cruz – whose relationship is getting very serious according to People magazine's source- left with the promise to come back to Mexico's only colonial city on a beach.
