Well everything here is well stocked and the natives are friendly. Best part is the number of visitors has dropped way off (no cruise ships allowed, several people have gone home earlier and there are fewer new arrivals. People wise . . . it feels more like it did 20 years ago.
Also the winds have died down, the water visibility is amazing and the diving is crazy good. Free swimming giant green morays and feeding eagle rays are easier to find.
I guess if you were to try and fly back to Canada immediately, then you could bunker down in a hotel until you were able to get back to YLW. Or rent a car and drive home from YVR?
Maybe the Mexican family following you won't be able to get there - or choose not to travel at this time - so you could then extend your stay on Cozumel? Or stay elsewhere on the island because im sure plenty of people have cancelled their forward holidays for the immediate future. As for food . . . catch some of the fish you see when diving. Problem solved! *grins*
Whatever you end up doing, just try and stay safe and look after each other *hugs*
It looks like I am now on the last West Jet flight out of Cancun that will be flying to Canada for at least a month (or longer). So my trip has been cut short by a week but at least I will be home. Meanwhile I will pack in two more days of diving so will not lose too much that way.
So an interesting thing happened on Saturday (yesterday). I went into the village on Cozumel to get a haircut and decided to double check the ferry schedule for my Sunday trip to the mainland to catch my plane home. They told me that all ferry service would be cut off on Sunday for at least 30 days and that there were only two ferries left running that Saturday. I rushed back to the condo, packed and just made it to catch the last ferry off the island.
So now I am in Playa del Carmen (mainland) and will get a taxi to the Cancun airport in a few hours to (with luck and no changes) get my plane home.
