We are headed to Progresso on our Cruise ship and know nothing about this area. Money is tight so we are not planning on doing a tour so wondered if there is anything right off the ship, least expensive way to get to a beach, etc. Please help.
Re: Re: Progesso - what to do if you don't take a tour
I was in progesso last march on the Carnival Pride. We decided not to do anything in this port and we were happy we did. It is a nice beach. You take the free shuttle bus from your ship to shore. The pier is 6 miles long. The bus drops you off in front of a shopping area which is about a block from the beach. We spent the day on the beach and just relaxed. I give this new port a few more years and it will be busy. We had some friends who went on excursions and said they wished they had just relaxed at the beach.
