Cancun to Ottawa (need help getting back w/ Avios & Avion)

We have booked the Ottawa to Cancun leg of our trip through points, but are having difficulty with the return leg and are hoping for some assistance!

Ideally we would return on December 2, 2014, but could extend to December 3 or 4.

We are two adults, 1 toddler and a lap infant. Without points, the cost is $935 so that is the fall-back.

We have about the following points:
- 70,000 BA Avios points
- 65,000 Avion points (RBC) - good for redemption schedule - https://www.rbcrewards.com/travel-re...rid/index.html or 100 points per $1

I have looked at lots of different options, but am coming up blank. Perhaps one of the experts here sees something I don't.

Many thanks!

Welcome to FlyerTalk. Destination fora are probably not useful for these kinds of questions, so we'll move this to a forum that is designed for newer members and is broader in scope tha most fora.

Your Avios points would be good on US' CLT-YOW and PHL-YOW flights. Can you get to CLT or YOW from CUN on AA/US? If the flights to YOW are not available, can you fly into alternate airports, like YUL, YYZ, or ART? Or is the problem getting award flights out of CUN?

In situations like this, it's best to search for each individual leg separately.
