5 out of 5
Always plenty of options here. too short of time in port,need another 2-3 hours.
Don't Miss: Chakannub Park- something for everyone.

Progreso (Merida), Mexico

5 out of 5
A relatively new port with an evcellent beach and local market sure to stray from the taco and fajita joints and find some authentic Mexican fare.Peddlers are not over aggresive.
Don't Miss: water sports @ beach.

Pros: food, comedians onboard. Ports of call

Cons: time in port, left too early.
