1 cruise (first)
I've heard a lot of negativity about Progreso. That's because Progreso shows you the reality of Mexico, which is both sad and beauitful. Mexico is not a country that operates for the purpose of entertaining cruisers. This is their life, and if you spend your day in Progreso, all the money you spend is supporting their economy. Learn to appreciate the people and the culture, not turn your nose because it doesn't look like suburban America. Progreso was my favorite port! We took the Carnival excursion "Uxmal Mayan Ruins and Hacienda Ochil." 5 stars...I am so glad we booked this excursion! It is also a great value for what you are getting. The ruins themselves are simply unbelievable, and you do get to climb on most of them. One carnival excursion only takes you to the ruins and includes a box lunch; for basically the same price and same amount of time, you can book the excursion that also takes you to Hacienda Ochil, a beautiful local ranch, where they will serve you authentic Mexican...
