Progreso is OK if you need to get some provisions from Walmart. There isn't much to recommend it as a city. There isn't anything wrong with Progreso per se, there just isn't anything great either. The malecon is ok. You'll get pestered by the locals from the villages between Progreso and Merida looking to sell traditional handicrafts, but it's not... More

Our group took an excursion to bike and snorkel in cenotes in Progreso. Although this must be a constant occurrence, the area still felt authentically Mexican. Bikes were a little old, but we really enjoyed the whole thing. Unusual plant life, amazing cenotes.

We cruised to progreso on the carnival elation. After reading several reviews my husband and I were apprehensive about our day here. We got off the boat early and caught the autopregreso bus to the end of the 4 mile pier. After a brief walk from the drop off point we arrived at a nice beach chair/umbrella on the Caribbean...

This was our first time in Progreso and did not know what to expect. We like to explore the local scene just to get a feel of the town. From our cruise ship, we took a free bus into town since the pier was several miles long. We took this five dollar per person 30 minute double decker bus tour... More

Shore Excursioneer did not deliver all of the paid for services (visit Dzibilchaltun and private beach) and the pick up and return instructions where not clear. For example, the email confirmation stated we paid for a combination private beach visit and a tour of Dzibilchaltun. While my family and friends did enjoy the Cenote Xlakah and Dzibilchaltun mayan ruin our... More

I loved the time we spent there, the kids loved the banana rides and the food, but every 5 minutes we got a vendor trying to sell something! Hair braids, massages, food, tours, deserts, clothing, etc. could be a lot more enjoyable....

This port is close to Merida by bus. 34pesos roundtrip. When a cruise ship is in town many vendors will travel to this beach town to hawk their goods. The bars and restaurants cater to the tourist. We were served at the beach all day long and assigned a personal wait staff. If you don't like culture and exposure to... More

Apart from the coneccion with the sea.a long beach with quiet and pacefully waters there are a good number of water activities..plus another atractions worth to visit. 15/20 minutes passing Progreso I went to visit the salt lakes with Pristine and hot waters.

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.
