Bienvenido a Halifax, Cuauhtémoc! The Mexican Tall Ship Cuauhtémoc is in Halifax this weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, there are FREE deck tours from 10:00 am- 8:00 pm, as per this schedule.  The Cuauhtémoc is a training vessel for the Mexican navy, and an ambassador to her country. The ship carries 250 crew members, including 81 cadets that change every year. Visitors to the ship will be impressed by the skills of the young sailors -and energized by the sound of traditional Mexican music!
