Overview Of The Port Of Progreso

About Progreso
Progreso is a port city in the Mexican state of Yucat√°n, located on the Gulf of Mexico in the north-west of the state.

The beach along the Malecon in Progreso is clean, with lots of watersports available. There is a craft market at the shuttle bus drop off and several restaurants with tables and chairs right on the beach.

Merida, around 30 minutes drive away, is the capital of the Yucatan state and a major attraction for many visitors. You will find lots of shops around the city square. Sights here include the Cathedral of San Ildefonso, the City Museum, the Pasaje de la Revolucion and Museum of Contemporary Art.

Other attractions include Casa Montejo, Government House and the clock tower on top of City Hall.

Chichen Itza, the famous Mayan archaeological site is at least 2 hours drive away from Progreso. The site includes the Temple of Kukulkan, the Ceremonial Ball Court, the Well of Sacrifice and the Observatory.

Uxmal, another archaeological site is slightly nearer (around 90 minutes each way). Here you will find the House of the Turtles, Pyramid of the Magician and the Palace of the Governor.

X'cambo archaeological site is a less crowded and nearer option, it features a pyramid, burial sites and sacrificial wells.

Dzibilchltun site is only 15 minutes from Progreso. It is the largest site discovered so far.

Snorkelling in the clear waters of nearby 'Cenote Caves' is a popular shore excursion.

Uaymitun is a wildlife and bird sanctuary and another excursion option.

Golfers can head to La Ceiba Golf Course, just outside Merida.

Progreso's Malecon Beach offers lounge chairs, umbrellas, watersports, fishing trips, volleyball, changing rooms and showers.

Fresh fish and seafood, Mexican cuisine and international options such as Thai and Italian can be found in restaurants.
