Thanks Rob! Looks like we won't be flying via Toronto afterall. Westjet just added a direct flight Halifax to Cancun for $189.00 plus tax. We switched our flights so now we can sleep in, fly direct and still arrive in Cancun within an hour of when we were going to (plus we got a small refund ).

One of your pics looks like it was from Yan Ten at the bottom of 4th. They're still a going concern are they? Looking forward to your reports and updates!

Rob,

I am glad to see the ferrie looks the same! I loved that taco spot. I am sure you will find a new one. See you in a couple of months.

I was never one for drinking hard liquor but have lately been sipping some spiced whiskey it's called Spicebox Canadian made so I don't expect to find it there. Do they have anything like that? Am I allowed to put some in my luggage?
