Is not the best beach but it is a great one. if you are looking for luxury do not go, but if you are looking for a nice day to relax enjoy the ocean, Swimm and eat fresh seafood, this is the place. Just go to "malecon" and you will find several places where you can sit under a palapa... More

Just finished an amazing day trip from Merida to progreso. Caught the bus just outside the Hyat Hotel for $25 pesos each, took about an hour to get there. Got off and was welcomed to a beautiful beach, people and vendors everywhere and lots of restaurants to choose from. We ended up choosing a place with an octopus outside the... More

If you are looking for a relaxing day at the beach, whether you arrive in Progreso on a Cruise Ship or decide to visit this beach town when visiting the Yucatan, you will not be disappointed! A white sandy beach awaits, along with a selection of restaurants (some offering palapa umbrella tables on the beach), and souvenir shopping. The beach... More

Dirty, crowded and noisy town. In my opinion it's not worth the trip from Merida. The trip is cheap but I don't see why you would be going there if you know what is expecting you.

This was a very fun and informative trip. I enjoyed the bus ride and seeing all of the old Colonial Architecture in Merida and then being able to explore in Itzamal. It was beautiful, and the guide Miseal was excellent. We learned a lot about Mayan history, the Jesuit influence, saw beautiful buildings, rode in a Victoria to our lunch... More

This winter we decide to give a try to the Yucatan beach Progreso. This town is on the gulf of Mexico, not in the Caribbean, the sand is fine and white and the color in the water is more green color and deep blue, we stayed here for two months and enjoyed every single day. From the breezy days in... More
