My husband and I are cruising on Granduer on January 7, 2008 (our 4th RC cruise). The cruise is 5-nights with 2 days at sea. (So if you have good advice, please post soon. And please do not suggest onboard activities as we will probably see plenty of those.) I have read through several of the existing postings and the general thought seems to be "Progreso=Boring". My husband and I had planned to visit the ruins at Tulum because they seem to be closer than the other ruins, and we didn't want to spend 4+ hours on a bus. Visiting Tulum occupies almost all of the time we have in Cozumel. Would you recommend visiting ruins from Progreso instead so we could spend more time in Cozumel, or can anyone recommend something else fun to do in Progreso? (Background: I visited both Chichen Itza and Uxmal in 1997, but would not mind returning since my husband has not seen either. Neither of us has been to Tulum, but my best friend and her husband went on their honeymoon.)
Thanks for the help.
