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.

Port in Progresso looks quite small from the ship, but once you are on land and inside you realize there is a lot more than you expected. Vendors were a bit pushy which really upsets my wife, so we found some T-shirts and other souvenirs and returned to the ship. I enjoyed watching the bird life from the ship and watching the people try and get travelers to take pictures with them. Read Less

Just took a Bus to the downtown area then walked about 4 blocks to the beach and saw a variety of vendors selling their wares, bought a few bargains while sitting on the beach

We were harassed so much by the vendors on the beach that we left as soon as we finished our drinks. We did find another place away from the beach to enjoy lunch, but we were so disappointed that our beach day got ruined by pushy vendors.

One must consider that a great deal of effort, time, and money has been expended to bring Cozumel to the high level of recreational activities and shopping that it enjoys; while Progreso, as I was told by an involved cruise line employee, is "years away". With the cruise line pier almost 5 miles from the mainland, location itself poses logistical difficulties. Quality control of vendors, merchandise, financial transactions, etc., are all factors. There were a significant number of passengers who did not leave the ship that day compared to other ports of call. Read Less

Long bus ride to get off the pier. We didn't feel safe, and the vendors were as bad as Texas mosquitoes. If we don't have an excursion next time, we will stay on the ship.

You have to pre book excursions because it’s an hour and half commute to the city from the port for most excursions . Taxis a little pricey because of distance . Souvenirs are very nice and cheap here.

There were vendors everywhere, harassing you. We finally found a restaurant to hide out from them. They post signs for the "Beach" with arrows pointing towards their shops.
