Progresso is a small seaside town thirty kilometres North of Merida on the Gulf of Mexico. It is a nice little town and a quick way to escape the heat of Merida. We followed the coast another fifty kilometres along the Gulf before returning to Merida. This area is full of very expensive waterfront houses, many with Canadian flags flying and a nice new all inclusive hotel that was almost deserted. There is very little public beach access once you get away from the town of Progresso.
We found a very nice but tiny bakery on the way home and stocked up on bread and goodies for under $20 Pesos.
