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!

yes its alot better to have direct flight,,and thats a deal for sure.....yes yan ten is still in business,,,however its very slow around the beach yesterday.....beer prices are about the same,,,2 for 38 pesos....

Yeah really. That is my "go to" ATM. So now what appears to be the best (most secure) option for ATM's in that area ?

Yes they are both pulled out. Looks like they are renovating the space. You will have to use the Scotia Bank at Constituyentes and 10th for a while.

I didn't have any luck convincing Don, right now he is in a little town close to La Paz in the Baja. Friends have a place there and he went down with Garry on the 9th and coming back on the 21st. I found a flight for him to go to Playa from there instead of coming back but it's not good timing for him.

My flight arrives on the 24th @ 5:22pm, depending on how long it takes to get through and out to the bus, there is a 6:15 and 6:50....hopefully not the 7:30. If there are any delays with my flight leaving here I'll send you an email. The last time we had a 4 hour delay because the plane was coming from Edmonton and the de-icing was freezing as it was being put on

well that sucks,,,i always had fond memories of that guy,,,,we had a blast that day we went to the bull fights in cancun,,crushing beer cans in the stands and yelling com mon,,,,
the bus schedule says there are 1815 and 1915 and 2030 , most likely it will be the 615 one you will be on, and now its taking close to an hour to get down in playa,,,the streets are torn up on 10th so if there is any amount of traffic it may be a bit longer in town till you get to the terminal...any way ill be around when you get off the bus,,,it lands at jaurez and 5th ave
