Great trip- and great cab driver

We got back this week from our 2 week stay- flew from Regina to Montreal - and had a great trip. We stayed at the Aquarium - and happy with our choice. Ocean breeze off the dock was great - snorkelling in waist deep water at dock was wonderful - saw puffer (angel fish), even a 4 foot barracuda living under the dock.

We travel in group of 6 so got name of cab driver (with a van) from the driver we had taking us from airport when we arrived--and he was great. If anyone is needing a van when they're there--his name is Farmin Forbes - cell #318 823 2220. He works in front of the Sunrise Hotel which is just down road from Aquarium Hotel. His English is pretty good, he is clean-cut, van was clean and we definitely felt safe with him (even got him to take us to the famous "chicken fights" one evening. The island is great--we struggled a bit with language barrier but managed okay. Great trip.

Thanks for your post! Glad you had a great time..wish more people from here (Ontario) would go so that they would bring the flights back to Toronto.

kinda hard for us to go when they don't have flights......when you can only go one week not worth it to waste a couple of those days trying to get to and from Montreal!....We would love to go back .....

Hey tanseeker!

I totally agree with you...I would have gone back but I'm not spending additional money to get to Montreal plus the wasted travel time.

Rumour has it, that the flights are coming back to Toronto this fall.

...fingers crossed!

For living where we do, we expect to use a day on each end of any trip we take- we've been either driving 8 hrs to Calgary, or flying - i was just happy that the flight from Montreal left on a Monday--we spent the weekend in Montreal- and enjoyed seeing that city as well. But back to San Andres Island --it was a reasonably priced 2 week destination where the weather was great, the sand was white, and beer was cold.

We are also hoping that they will start having flights out of Toronto to SanAndreas. That's the main reason that we didn't go there this year for two-weeks.
