Hi Everyone! We just returned from another fantastic cruise on the Holiday. Even though the seas were among the roughest I have ever experienced (20 ft) everyone still managed to have a terrific time! I've read many disappointing comments on Progreso, and based on what we saw getting off the ship, we were tempted to simply agree with the comments and get back onboard. DO NOT DO THIS! KEEP GOING! Go into the town and meet some great people. The public beach by the jetty actually has a lot of sand and numerous places to eat, drink and even get massages if desired. We stopped by LaMarina bar on a side street and met the greatest group of locals you could hope for. This stop is so much better than Costa Maya and Belize and we look forward to visiting there again. This port could very easily be the next Cozumel in years to come. Speaking of Cozumel, looks like there will soon be a downtown area for each pier. Carlos and Charlies recently opened a new "beach club" just south of downtown and it is simply great in every way! As soon as time allows, I'll post more details but for now, its back to work!

I've been to that beach... I would have to agree with you. Its not for snorkeling but for just sunning yourself it is fine. I didn't get a chance to visit any local places but next time I stop there I sure will give it a try. I agree that the town is worth seeing. its not a big place but it definetly has the "old world charm". Let's hop eit can stay that way for a little longer.

Thanks for the report TN!

Welcome back, sounds like even with the rough seas y'all had smooth sailing. Can't wait to read your review. I'm sure your work is piled up waiting for you. Best wishes and have a wonderful weekend!

Welcome back.

Thanks for the heads up on Progreso. We were about to make the same mistake of staying on the ship...but if you say there is fun to be had...we are there!!!

We will try to find the same bar. (and get to hear lots of stories about the crazy American that was just there from Tennessee!!)
