Progreso Beach Excursion Reviews

Take a refreshing dip in the ocean, sit with your toes in the warm sand, or simply take in the scenery and some sun from your lounge chair at some of Mexico's best beaches.
Seashell covered beach, watered down drinks and greasy food.

We rode the free shuttle to the bus stop and had to wait over an hour for our tour to begin. We were able to get some shopping in while we waited. Then we took a 15-20 min ride to the Teqnotel and those who wanted to see the myan ruins could stay on the bus. We wanted to see the ruins. so on the 15 minute route to see these ruins we stopped at a salt flat where my husband and I discovered we did not have our camera. We asked the tour guide, Mario Lopez, if there was anything we could do. He called his supervisor and he went to check with all the shops to see where or if we had left the camera there. We were only at the ruins for 30 minutes and within that time they were quite sure they found our camera. And we got confirmation they had found it by the time we got back to the teqnotel. Awsome work by this great team. We got the camera back when we got back to the port. At the end of the day. Read Less

After two bus rides, with a long wait between them in a dubious empty lot, we were dropped off at Tecnotel Resort. The beach was nice, even though it was mostly crushed seashells and seaweed. The weather wasn't the best, but when the sun came out, it was relaxing. The two swimming pools are well kept, and I would advise going to the quieter one at the back of the property. The waiters brought food and drinks to us both at the beach and pool, and we could always go and fetch more food if we needed to. The chicken fajitas and cheese quesadillas were the best items on the limited menu. Read Less

We did the Resort Beach Break. On the hour drive got some good history. Resort is nice, Beach is OK. The excursion is all you can eat/drink. Great if you drink otherwise not so great. Service was excellent.

Staff was great, food was good, and the drinks were a little weak, but still very good. The beach has a lot of shells, so water socks are a must. But, our beach area was clean with no trash.

We did the "Mi Casa Es Su Casa" beach break, and it was outstanding! Amazing tour guide and customer service, lovely beach, hammocks, 2 pools, and $1 per minute massages if you want one. Food and drink was unlimited and excellent. Easy to mingle or be alone if you prefer - space was ample and group small enough. In peak summer though, we were told, there is only one pool and less space because the second house gets rented. Property was beautiful, time flew, and we hated to leave! Read Less

Aaron was our tour guide. He was knowledgeable, personable, and entertaining. The driver Luis was a good driver. The bus was roomy, clean, and comfortable. The resort was wonderful. There was a bar right on the beach and another in the pavilion. There was a buffet with a wide variety of food both on the beach and in the pavilion. There were ample lounge chairs, hammocks, and umbrellas. There was a nice pool if you didn't want to swim in the ocean. There were local vendors with some beautiful crafted goods. There was plenty of places to sit in the sun and plenty of places to sit in the shade. They held some different games as well to entertain the guests. Good value for the price. Read Less

Very fun beach break. We booked at the bus depot. We had almost booked same excursion though Carnival but didn't. Glad we waited as it was half price at the bus terminal. Very fun. The bus picked you up at bus terminal and dropped you off back at port. Very relaxing. Pool was small at resort but was very nice. Ocean was so warm.....it was lovely. The drinks were not very alcoholic. They were as much as you wanted and the staff at the resort was awesome! Alcohol was watered down if there was any alcohol in drinks. Read Less
