There's not much too do in Progresso. The few shops that are located right off the ship are higher priced. The farmers market is a hoot with all the carcuses hanging around for the locals to buy! The beach is small and not much to speak of. We did get our hair braided for very cheap close to the beach. I'm also going to Progresso in less than a week but I'm going to remain on the ship this time and take advantage of the lighter crowd. It's an experience just walking around but you will have to take the free shuttle to get anywhere.
