Progreso - help please

What to do in Progreso for a couple of young 60s? Is there a nice beach anywhere near the cruise ship pier? What is Corona Beach like and how near is it to the pier, also Malecon how far away is that and is it worth a taxi ride?

Please help!

There is a nice beach (Corona Beach) right next to the cruise ship pier. There are many seafood restaurants right across the street from the beach. Most have beachside service when the ships are in port. The water is very shallow here with no strong currenrs to worry about. You could also take a tour to Merida which has many old colonial buildings. The area is very safe and the natives are friendly. Have a goog and safe trip. Steve
