Default Progreso excursion question...Please help!

Hi..
Going on the Pride in a week. We would like to do the bike ride/ruins excursion. They take you to some limestone caves with pools in them. Sounds very interesting. Has ANYONE done this?? I haven't read anyone that has and hope someone can help up decide if it's worth it. Sounds like it, but you never know.

Thanks,
Laura

I went on the Pride in May and I don't even remember them having that excursion in Progreso. I went on the Uxmal tour. It was LONG and HOT, but pretty interesting.

Some people say don't do it..not enough time. Or maybe they mean on your own..don't rent a car. We don't want to spend that much time in a car or on a bus to get there. Course, how many times do u get a chance to go there?
I guess we'll just have to decide if that's what we want to do. I don't know of anyone that's done this excursion..Does that say something??

I went on the Pride a few months ago. We took the Chichen-Itza tour through the ship and enjoyed it very much.
The only tour re/biking is a "beach blast bike tour"--lasts approx. 3.5 hrs--appears you ride around Progresso , then head for the beach. There is nothing in it re/ any ruins.
If you like history, especially Mayan history and ruins, you should definitely take either the Chichen-Itza or Uxmal tours.
They both entail a bus ride of approx. 2 hr. each way. The bus we were on was modern, a/c and had a bathroom. Very confortable.
We are going back on the Pride last of Sept. with some friends and plan to take the Uxmal tour this time.
I think it is well worth it. Have fun and leave some fun for us!

Well, I had to look up the excursion again. Thought maybe I was reading it wrong. It's called the Nature bike/ ruins tour under geocities.com/cruisethepride... Maybe it's new and that's why no one has taken it. So we must decide now. Only a few days now. I'm just praying for good weather and that storm stays away from us. Don't think there should be a problem. Have heard they don't usually hit our itinerary.

thanks,
Laura
6 more days til we fly out!

Hi, Laura ...

If the bike thing doesn't work out, I really recommend going to Uxmal over Chichen Itza. You can see a bunch of photos on my personal website, <http://happysails.com>.

Be sure to come back aftwerwards and let us know what you decide !!!
