Progreso
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

I enjoyed Progresso very much. What a change from the last time I was there!!
We took the double decked bus.  read in CC review that tour was $3 per person, they charged us $5

very small pueblo not much to see. CC review said stop for beer. we stopped twice not for beer or water, but to advertise massage and a beach bar. I suggest save your cash, walk a couple of blocks to beach order bucket of 5 beers $10 with lime, chips and salsa, and small shot of tequila. time better spent -JTOS

water is the gulf of mexico not the caribbean, sand is more tan then white,but the water was warm and felt great in mid june

many bars and massage tables along malecon just keeping walking till you get a good vibe, pick a shaded table and enjoy.

try the local Yucatan beer,

the locals do come around selling their goods, just say "no thanks", or shop from your chair in the shade drinking a beer eating a snack.

and you think you're not blessed -JTOS

again, thanks for your time

arrived at Puerto maya carnival private pier. inconvenient to downtown area. located midway between beaches and town. $14 ride to beaches for up to 4, did not go to town.
Went to Paradise Beach - $2 per person + $10 each in drinks,food,recreation. Nice beach clean -white sand -shade and chairs.

Water toys for $12 per person
bucket of 5 beers $12 some available in cans some in bottles -if it matters to you ask -after you order it's too late

food was good, had guacamole with chips -and shrimp quesadillas

for a little more than half of the excursion price we enjoyed a nice sunny day relaxing

if you can find another couple to share the ride you can cut the price
come out with the herd and you increase your chances, if you want to avoid the cattle call you take you chances.

shopped at duty free on carnival's pier for tequila

personally I would like to dock in town, more shopping options plus you can see the city, including churches, land marks etc.
