Looking for a menu that will satisfy everyone in your "party"? Looking for a "party"? Or, an "oasis of tranquility" ....with great food and a VIEW? Depending on what day of the week or time you walk into Eladio's you can get "all of the above"!

Order a beverage first but be prepared for the "botanas" (Mexican appetizers) that will begin to arrive. Don't blink...because you could end up with 6 small plates piled with hot & cold food...and with no time to say that only 3 might fill you up! Take your time looking over the menu choices...it's a tough call AND you'll need time to finish your snacks before your entree arrives!

TIP: If a cruise ship is in port, you may want to come back on another day! That can create a crush of people with all the services in Progresso being taxed to the max.

I have now had the pleasure of visiting near-by Merida 5 times...3 of those visits were month-long stays.

When I felt the need for a change of pace, i.e., cooling breezes, a sea-side location...and abundant sea food...it was time for a "field trip" to Progresso. Buses leave every 10 minutes from the Auto Progresso terminal in the Centro area for the 40 - 60 minute trip (depending on cross-town traffic). At just over $2. ( 29 MX pesos) return, it's a bargain!

A loooooong walk on the malecon after your meal, will help before it's time for you to head back to the local bus terminal and your return trip Merida.

First of all the staff here are very friendly and accommodating. We ended up going here a couple times during our time in Progresso. Both visits were great experiences, with many botanas served during drinks while we decided what to have. Both ate from the Mx. menu and were very happy with our meals. The margaritas on the rocks came in small cups but were the perfect blend. Tried about four different kinds of cerviche here, burritas, tacos, and plenty else.

Right on the Progreso beach is this superb restaurant. Although their entrees are very good, the best reason to go here is to have an ice cold beer. Along with the price of the beer, you are served several little dishes of appetizers, sometimes up to a dozen. They are really delish and can actually be enough for a whole lunch. The restaurant has indoor seating but also outdoor seating under umbrellas. Another plus is that they rent beach lounging chairs so you can have your beer and munchies and then just move over to a lounging chair and enjoy the sun and beach. There are a couple of locations of this restaurant in Merida also, but not in the centro.

We visited this restaurant while on a cruise... This restaurant was referred by friends... It has a wonderful beachfront location. The problem we had was that someone at this establishment scammed our credit card number. The day after we left Progreso, the ship called us and informed me that our credit card was not working. I called the credit card company, who informed me that it had been shut off due to attempted charges in Merida, Mexico (e.g. $2,800 at Costco, $600 at a record store, etc)... Eladio's was literally the ONLY place we purchased ANYTHING from.

We had seen other couples from the ship at the restaurant. When we saw them back aboard the ship days later, we alerted them, and SURPRISE - it had happened to them as well (3 couples we know of)...

If you go, PAY CASH!
