Watching the sun set over the beaches of Progreso, in the Yucatan Peninsula, is a unique and unforgettable experience. Shortly before the sun sets you can enjoy watching the flamingos from a lookout built especially for this purpose, which is situated on the road between the towns of Chicxulub and Uaymitun (both are ports near Progreso). All this just 30 minutes from the city of Merida
This is the port city of Merida, and is also the coastal weekend village for people from the capital. This does not apply to our concept of metropolitan areas, towns here are small. Swimming on the beach did not seem to be highly recommended, the water had a dirty color, we do not know if it is the proximity of the port or because this day was pretty hectic. It was therefore more palatable to binge on fresh seafood at one of the waterfront restaurants.
