Progreso is about 30km north of Merida. If you are driving, its a very easy drive. It is a small port with a few restaurants and a very long beach, that is not a match to others in the region. I guess is a local beach for people of Merida.

What a waste of time. Ok, I am sure it could be worth something to a certain group. The family group should just pass. GO ahead and get off the boat and take a super hot bus trip down the 2 mile port. Walk through the shops and just hang on the beach for FREE! Other than that, stay on... More

Progreso is a port city of 50000 people--many friendly Mayans--located due south of New Orleans--it is a cruise ship stop for Carnival Cruise Lines with twice a week visits--the town is reasonably clean but NOT on weekends when the Meridanos come north to party, look down on the Mayans and then leave to return to their mostly-rich homes and leave...

Great restaurants. Murky, but clean water. Very overcrowded. Years ago, it was a quaint little fishing village. Now its an overcrowded tourist attraction.

Went here with no expectation other than visiting the Mayan ruins here. Being able to see a place that hasn't succumbed to "tourism" was an eye opener, I'm sure that will change with Carnival stopping here. Our guide was a wealth of information and made this a very pleasant trip.

Progresso is a pit..not even worth getting off the ship for unless you're doing a tour of the ruins or something. It's a dirty, disgusting little town where you're severely accosted by the residents for money every few feet.

Our cruise stopped in Progresso and we took the excursion to the Mayan Ruins which was wonderful. Skip shopping at the pier or shop at the nice duty free shop and skip the others. We were scammed by two stores. Thank goodness I was smart enough to check my charges when I got home and they took off the charge.... More
