Take the free shuttle from the shop to the Casa de Cultura. Walk south (away from the beach) on Calle 80. On the right hand side, you'll see San Francisco supermarket. It's about half a block north of the town square, between Calle 29 and Calle 31. See our map of Progreso here: http://www.yucatantoday.com/maps/eng-progreso-map.htm
Like most foreign ports, carry small denominations of US currency to avoid carrying lots of local currencies back home. Also in Mexico, make sure your US bills are in near perfect condition. No tears in the bills.
