Default Info on Progreso, Yucatan?

The Rhapsody of the Seas is going to start making port calls at Progreso, on the Campeche side (NW) of the Yucatan Peninsula. I've been able to find very little information online about that port, other than the fact that it has an absolutely beautiful beach with water that's usually clear and calm. Anyone able to enlighten me further? For example, what else is there to do? How far is it by how bad a road to Itchy Chicken? Etc.

"X" marks the spot, DT.

Progreso is just north of Merida, a very pretty town.

After consulting my trusty atlas and my not so trusty memory, I'm going to guess that it's about 2.5 hours to Itchy Chicken from Merida.

We've been on that road, and -- at least then -- it wasn't bad. Boring as He!!, but not bad.

I'll also hazard at guess that Itchy will be a shoreX from Progreso.

pamda

p.s. Do you remember the color of the wrapper of Yucatan chewing gum?
