We have been to progresso several times. The cruise ships have a bus area which is free and they drive you to a flea market plaza. Nothing great about the flea market if you walk outside of that plaza and just walk down the street you get to the beach. The beach is nice, there are local that try and sell you things which we find fun haggling with them. Although this may not be for everyone. If you want a private beach than I would suggest signing up on one of the excusions the cruise lines offer.

We just got back from driving around the Yucatan for 16 day, it was the best trip ive ever done. We stay at little fishing village, drove in the jungle,wwent were most people would not go a vacation. Driving in the Yucatan is good no hassles at all.Go to Progresso,Merdia Izmal, is a fewplaces that are a must.

I always try to be upbeat and positive in my life. However, I must also be honest. The trip to Progresso was a huge disappointment.
The cruise line provides you with a bus ride to a flea market. You take a nice air condtioned bus, when you get there its a total disappointment. There is really just nothing you couldnt find at a flea market in the U.S. It was full of junk made in China being passed off as Mexican. The place is set up in an abandoned parking lot, its just not nice in anyway.
We took off on foot to look around and there just is not one thing you would miss.
We are both seasoned travelers and love to immerse into the culture, this place is not great place to make this experience.
The cruise ship should be a bit embarassed of passing this place off as a destintion.
I almost forgot the ride back to the ship....We were picked up back at the flea market by the most filthy disgusting bus, it stank and there was no air conditioning, it was 107 degrees outside and inside the bus. We did inquire if we could wait on an bus with ac and we were just laughed at. If you are from a Northern state you understand. The ship docks 6 miles down the world longest pier from the town.

However, its saving grace was a georgous beach. And a couple bars facing the water.

So I would suggest if you end up in Progresso Mexico take a ship excursion or possibly just go to the beach for the day.
