going to Progreso thought about going to Merida, please help
Does anyone know anything about Marida, Mexico? My daughter's Spanish teacher told her it was a beautiful place to go but I don't know about going in that far. Do they speak English, is it safe? I heard Progreso isn't that great so we thought about going to Merida.
We took that cruise about a year and a half ago, but we stayed in Progresso rather than going into Merida.
We didn't mind Progresso, really, although it wasn't special. We took the shuttle from the ship, along the lon-n-n-n-n-ng pier, and walked to the beach. Laid claim to one of the tables with umbrellas, ordered some guacamole and chips (the guacamole was great!) and beer...swam in the warm water. Very calm there, not much wave action. It was nothing special, but it was RELAXING. Sometimes that's enough!
I hope someone who has visted Merida replies, though....
