We will be on Prograsso port from 8am to 5pm. Can you get an excursion to Chitzen-Itzha from Prograsso/Merida port? I have heard that on-ship excursion will be expensive..Is there enough time to get off the ship and find a tour guide to take us to Chitzen-Itzha tour and than be back in time?
I agree the Carnival tour is the way to go. I'm a group leader that usually plans private tours, however with the time frame given in Progreso I decided it was too risky to hire outside the box. The tour also included a snack lunch which wasn't that bad. Soda & water were available for $1. and beer $2. Guides spoke good english and were most informative. Several of us took our own pillows for the ride over and back to get a little siesta.
