We stopped at Progreso as a port of call aboard the Carnival Triumph. City is not equipped to handle a large cruise ship. Excursions were not worth the money and very little to do in town. My wife and I were attached by local beggers, waiters, and shop workers attempting to open our wallets. Sad to see this because it... More

Stopped here as part of a Carnival cruise. Nothing much to do in Progreso itself, besides lazing on the beach... As part of the ship tours there are very nice tours to the ancient mayan ruins which is recommended.

I only listed this as a 4 because there is very little shade on the beach😪. Otherwise, it is a short car ride from Merida. In some areas....it becomes an 8 lane road! Once you get Ito Progresso stay on the main drag and it takes you directly to the beach. Much is going on there.....stands filled all kinds of... More

Stopped here for the day from the Carnival Triumph. We enjoyed our spot on the beach in front of one of the bars that started with the word Los, next to Eliado's. Walked around the market. There are vendors like any other cruise stop, but a "no thank you" will do. My husband's generosity to the ladies that collect money... More

Fantastic excursion. Eleven of us took the Uxmal and Cenote private tour and it is far and away the best experience of our Carnival Cruise Line trip. We were promptly picked up in Progresso by David and the driver, Gabriel. The vehicle was a comfortable air conditioned van and all vehicle related expenses such as fuel, parking and tolls where...

Stopped at this port on our Carnival cruise. The pier is located bedside a shipping import/export business. No beautiful scenery. You see dozens of large shipping containers and a few old ships. The stench in the air is horrible. The pier, when not in use, is a resting spot for large birds flying overhead. It's covered with old and new... More

You can find some nice beaches, especially near the pier and there are a lot of nice birds in the mngrove area south of the city, but for the rest there is nothing to see in this typical harbour city.

I am glad to finally be saying that William Lawson's has opened a storefront in Progreso! Now my reviews are in the correct place! We again hired William Lawson's as our tour guide during our stop to Progreso, Mexico on the Carnival Triumph, and again, we were delighted! We got our favorite guide, Angel, as we had requested. Angel is... More
