Finding sea shells in Progresso ?

Recommended Posts

All my grandkids want to do in December is find some sea shells, anyone know what the best beach to find some would be. Went last year but it rained the whole day and we could not go. Any help would make a 5 and7 year old very happy. Thanks in advance.

The beach in front of the malecon, beachfront road, is cleaned every morning, so most of the sea shells are removed.  If you walk east along the beach you will come to an area that is not cleaned daily.  Along the high tide mark you will find shells.  The City of Progreso has rehabilitated a new beach area to the west of the big pier, but I have not walked along that beach.  There is an excellent small seashell shop (say that three times) on Calle 78 across from Barlavento Restaurant, that has a wide variety of shells.
