Progreso Beach Mexico
Progreso Mexico, this beach paradise is simply 20 minutes from downtown Merida, a straight drive or a simple bus ride to the downtown area and just a 3 minute walk from the beach. This is one of the world's largest nesting
grounds for the pink flamingo. You can take a boat trip on the "ria"
and admire hundreds of flamingos and up to 320 species of birds. The
boat will also take you through one of the passageways of the the
mangrove swamps lining the estuary. There is also a refreshing cenote
in which you can take a dip and a "petrified forest" which is really a
forest of dead trees killed by seawater.
Please remember that the flamingos' worst enemy is man and getting too close has a negative effect on them.
When you're ready to eat go into town. There are a lot of nice places to eat along the beach.
If you enjoy lots of privacy and solitude, you'll like walking for miles along the beach and meet very few people. You'll find lots of pretty seashells and may spot the occasional dolphin.
Because Progreso is used both as a service town for locals as well as for tourists, it has everything one needs: large grocery store (called San Francisco's), internet cafes, the mercado (the market with fresh meat and vegetables, etc.), handicrafts (silversmiths, hand-made shirts & blouses, etc.), banks, ATM's, post office, drug stores, restaurants, hotels, bars.
Progreso is an area where people return year after year. If you contact the rental agencies and give them your needs they can make arrangements to visit the homes while you're there. You may even meet people that rent privately.
The enchanting waters and beautiful landscape of the Yucatan create a land of adventure, romance, and natural coexistence. Towering rainforests are home to thousands of species of wildlife and ancient Mayan ruins within their depths. The intricate under water river system (Cenotes), just a few miles inland, is unique and provides some of the best environments for underwater exploration.
Take a relaxing stroll on the long beautiful clean beaches that Progreso has to offer. Most times you can walk for miles and not come across another soul. The peacefulness of this magical place brings guests back year after year.
