500 Progreso Cruise Reviews

The free beach is worth a trip! Nice sand, though lots of shells so wear water shoes! Seaweed wasn't too bad, plenty of cleared sand to lay on. We didn't see any sand fleas, ants, or other bugs in January. Vendors walked around ... Read More
The free beach is worth a trip! Nice sand, though lots of shells so wear water shoes! Seaweed wasn't too bad, plenty of cleared sand to lay on. We didn't see any sand fleas, ants, or other bugs in January. Vendors walked around but weren't very pushy. Ate at Eladia's bar right by the entrance from the mercado where the shuttle bus drops you off - low prices, clean bathrooms, good food! Read Less

Felt very safe. Went on our own and had a much better time exploring. Took the double decker bus not offered by Costa and had a great time and a great guide.

Never ever go to Progreso. I would have rather stayed on the ship for the day. Dirty and people are constantly trying to sell you something.

Do not care much for Progresso. They drop you at what looks like a flea market and everybody trying to sell you trinkets and are pushy. Best way to get rid of them? Make them a ridiculous low offer. One lady put a bracelet on my wife ... Read More
Do not care much for Progresso. They drop you at what looks like a flea market and everybody trying to sell you trinkets and are pushy. Best way to get rid of them? Make them a ridiculous low offer. One lady put a bracelet on my wife and just kept saying only $40.00 make me an offer. I told her $5.00 and she took the bracelet and left. We did too. Went back to the ship. Read Less

Progreso is a small port with long walks- they do have a variety of shops near the dock but we found most items to be pricey. We did not go into town.

We haven't been here since 2009. Glad that they have more shopping areas at the pier. We went to Chichen Itza on our very first cruise. It is a long trip but worth it.

This excursion was misleading. The "lazy river" is man made and you spend more time on the bus than the excursion. Disappointed.

Wife and I got a massage for $30. Beach bar tried to charge us $25 to sit in their chairs. Ended up $25 plus tip for chairs and 4 beers. Got hasseled by traveling vendors every 5 minutes. After 4 beers we left the beach and got a massage. Bought 2 hats. Progresso only good for a massage and cheap shopping. The beach is unbearable with vendors. Read Less

We weren't supposed to stop at this port, itinerary called for Costa Maya but we were rerouted here. I had asked around about this port and the general consensus was to stay on the ship and I wish I had. Not much to do but shopping and it wasn't good. People stopping you every 5 steps to try to get you to go in their restaurant, get you a lounger and umbrella, buy this or that- enough already! If you end up here I advise you to do what i did not and stay on the ship! Read Less

We took the free bus into town. It drops you off at a flea market. There you can bargain some good deals but they will try to over charge you so make sure to bring some good bargaining skills and know when to walk away. Cheap massages which were very good. If you walk through the market there is a very beautiful beach behind it and a good restaurant. It has a Tecate sign on it. There is a great view of the ocean from the restaurant. They were very accomadating to my son who was upset. The chicken nachos were excellent. The chicken enchiladas not so much. We continued to have people coming to us trying to sell us stuff or begging for money. Some parts were beautiful other parts were a little rough. Overall nice place. Read Less

Once again, we just wandered through the area. We did find Mr. Hacksaw and had him create a gift out of a key for us. Other than that, we had delicious guacamole and some beers right there in the port. (anything for free wifi)

Was not impressed with this location. We did not book an excursion, just wanted to hang out at the beach but the town itself just seemed run down and there was not much to do.

Had a blast just walking around, people watching, and having a beverage at the bar across the street from the beach. Lots of little shops. Negotiate. $25.00 U.S. 1 hour massages available on the beach and next to the bus stop.

We stayed on the ship. Anyting worth doing is too far and the little pool at the port is as big as the ships. great day to enjoy the ship and weather without crowds.
