After this year's cruise to the Southern Caribbean. I'll switch back to the Western Carribean again. I like Cozumel. I read that Progresso is terrible. I won't book if it stops there. Anyone here have a tips about that place?

Never been to Progresso (at least I don't think so) but loved the Yucatan peninsula.

We did a ruins and rodeo excursion in Progreso. We enjoyed it, but after Freeport, it's probably our least favorite port of call so far. The ruins area was nice, but the rest of the areas we saw were

not places we would choose to visit again.

I did not enjoy at all , interesting port, I truly think a person with your port experiences huge let down, solid mile drive thru the concrete plant, not kidding than clear some port and then dropped off in town , filthy, beaches were ok but nothing to pull out the oh Go Pro, personally hope I never see the place again.. My opinion...


That's what I've read as well

Why book a trip with an undesirable port?

Exactly, the memory is fading but slowly Todd ,

Never been here. From what others here have written that is not a bad thing.

Uhoh, we are booked for Progresso in November, hopefully we will have a good time and can report back something good about the place. Alternatively, we might just not get an excursion, step off the ship, say, "Hey, Now we have been to Progresso" and get back on the ship and enjoy the day. We are taking 2 new cruisers to Progresso and Cozumel from NOLA on the Triumph the weekend after Thanksgiving!


I Think you will be just fine , maybe they added a few palm trees here are there , But yes that's exactly what we did we disembarked onto Progresso Mexico soil , walked thru the Village "5 minutes Tops" jumped in a cab toured the concrete plants on the way out , cleared an armed guard ??? Pulled into town walk the "sea side village" 10 minutes tops, and actually beat the cab driver that took us to town back to port , we waved as he drove by with a fresh set of "sightseers" jumped back on the boat and that was that. $20 bucks for that wonderful Excursion. Lol have fun....

Seriously, if you want to see anything beyond concrete and poverty, you need to take an excursion of some sort. Otherwise, it would be an awesome day to stay on the ship.

Sounds like a day for waterslides! Grandma Jo!
