How does this tour work?

AutoProgreso Station

Jus as with the rest of our shore excursions the pickup is at AutoProgreso Bus Station. It is a yellow building with several exits. When you take the free shuttle you may or may not end up here; there are two more drop-off locations besides this one. The first one is the handcrafts market, it is a quaint building with no roof, where you will find a lot of people willing to help you; the second one is near a very famous beach front restaurant called “Le Saint Bonnet”. Since we can't know where the shuttle will take you we encourage you to do two things; first give us your cellphone number so we can call you and locate you faster; second, walk to the AutoProgresso Bus Station. This might take a little longer, but there will be a guide with a sign with your name on it, please look for it at the station.

Patience, the destination is a few minutes away.

Some of the destinations are a bit far from Progreso, therefore we ask for your patience, each tour is worth the waiting. We will do our best to keep you entertained and interested by answering any question you may have about Yucatan or Mexico. Please consider that some places are about 1:30 to 2:00 hrs away from the beach.


EXCURSIONS

 

Progreso Shore Excursion: Cenotes San Antonio Mulix $87 usd p/p 

A great opportunity to coexist with the Yucatecan flora and fauna.

X-batún, the first cenote is located towards a former cacao plantation, in the former Hacienda San Antonio Mulix. The actual road to get there is a dirt road surrounded by wildlife. This is all part of the relaxing scenary of the Xbatun cenote.

Progreso Shore Excursion: Cenotes Adventure Yokdzonot $87 usd p/p 

Yokdzonot is also a small town surrounding the cenote. There is a Mayan Community leading all the activities that include zip lining, rappeling and snorkeling, amongst others. This is an authentic Mayan Community, so all the profits are used for maintaining these families, and keeping all the facilities in perfect conditions. They are also supported by the National Commission of the Indigenous Towns as part of the Alternative Tourism Program in Indigenous Areas.

This is a very special cenote since it's not overly turistic, it's very well kept. There are several activities for adventurers, as zip lining over the cenote or rappeling straight down to it. After a very hot day filled with activities the cenote will feel like an oasis. Your Adventures Mexico guide will stay with you all day providing any information required. Request more info

Some of them are very unique to the Yucatan region and difficult to find outside of the peninsula, while others are eaten throughout Mexico.The influence of ancient Mayas, who left a huge legacy that can be felt in many aspects of daily life in Yucatan, is especially noted in the cuisine.
