I am trying to relate comments I read about Progreso beaches to Galveston - and when I see pics of the Progreso Beaches, they look so much nicer than Galveston. I know that Progreso is still in the Gulf and not as beautiful as the Caribbean. But what I am trying to understand is the beach benchmark that these comments are made against ... are these comments from people that have seen other yucky beaches like Galveston? Or are they from people that have only seen the Caribbean or Florida?
To me, the pictures of Progreso Beach look much nicer than Galveston, even though it may not be clear like the Caribbean. Even on Google Earth, there is a huge difference in the way the water looks in Progreso compared to Galveston.
So, if you have been to both Progreso and Galveston ... how does Progreso Beach stack up against Galveston? Same? Better? I am hard pressed to believe it is worse ...
