Why Choose Progreso Vacation Rentals?

Progeso is a port city located on the Gulf of Mexico, in the state of Yucatan.
The average temperature in Progreso is an ideal 87 degrees F but be prepared for rainy seasons in June and September.

Situated some 30 minutes north of the state capital Merida, Progreso attracts local tourist from Merida in July and August as they escape to the cooler seaside region. For years just a sleepy fishing village, Progreso now has many summer homes, cottages and villas dotted along its beautiful coast. It also boasts a 16 block seaside walkway that is great for a leisurely evening stroll after a busy day of sight seeing.

El Corchito, an ecological preserve is located just 2 km east of Progreso and
is operated by local fishermen who now work to nurture the mangrove swamp by reinforcing canals which improve water circulation and encourage the growth of native plants. An interesting day trip is to take a five minute boat ride to the mangroves where there are palapas and picnic tables built by the fishermen, out of native wood. Here you can swim in one of the fresh water pools, or view local fish and waterfowl as you stroll the well-kept paths.

Because the main industry in Progreso is fishing, with over 900 fishing boats, there is no shortage of good quality fish to eat.

The Yucatan boasts over 2000 underground rivers and not far from Progreso you can swim and dive in these wonderful clear water cenotes and caves.

Another delightful offering of this area are the many lagoons where you can see thousands of pink flamingoes.
