? about 3 excursions in Progreso

Recommended Posts

We have narrowed it down to 3 excursions for my mother and me in Progreso and would like some feedback.

I have been to Chichen Itza before and she's been to many of the ruins so that's not an option this time.


Here they are:

1. Merida City Overview

2. Yucatan Cultural Experience

3. Progreso's Mayan Reality Tour


What did you like or dislike about these, are they worth the trip, etc.

Thanks for any feedback you can provide.

Why not just take the bus to Merida and enjoy the historical area, take a carriage ride out to Paseo Montejo, shop and have a good lunch? Best yet, at your own speed. BTW. The bus is $3.00 RT and the 50 minute carriage ride is 20-25 dollars.

Thanks. We'll do it!

Now, when the bus that collects us from the ship takes us into Progreso, do we take another bus to Merida? And will it drop us off where we can get the carriage?

Sorry for all the questions.

When the courtesy bus drops you at the flea market, just ask directions to the regular local bus station. Just two or three blocks. The Merida bus will take you to the Merida bus terminal. Walk out to the street, turn right and walk three blocks to the central plaza. As you explore the beautiful plaza you will see the carriages at the corner next to the cathedral. Check out http://www.yucatantoday.com and also my pics in the thread "hi guys" by host mach which is on page two or three of this board. The link to my pics are on my post #12. Merida is a very clean and safe city. Capitol of the State of Yucatan and home to four universitys.
