Yup, Arrecife Alacran is certainly the choice for a first "blue water" cruise
. Our local yacht club goes out there a couple of times a year.
Progreso is the main international shipping
port for the Yucatan peninsula. We're also the closest beach town to the capital city of Merida. We have a thiving US/Canada expat and snowbird community, but are by no means an expat enclave--when you're here, you're in Mexico
Just east of us is the most important town in the history
of the planet that you've never heard of--that Meteorite That Killed The Dinosaurs struck at Chixculub.
Only one "s" in Progreso!
