We visited Progresso on a cruise in 2002. While we spent no time in Progresso itself so we can't comment, we went on an enjoyable whole day ship's tour to Merida the capital city of the Yucatan which is about 25 miles south of Progresso. Merida is well worth a visit as it is a much more authentic Mexican city and less touristy than Cozumel. The Cathedral in the square and the Governors Mansion date back to the mid 1500's from memory. For lunch we were taken to a Mexican Ranch and after lunch we had a demonstration of Mexican horsemanship. So visits to Progresso do offer some interesting options apart from the Mayan ruins. Maybe it's just a case that such things are of less interest to Carnival guests seeking more active options than to some other cruisers.
