Took an early bus to the port town of Progreso, pop. 50,000. Haven't been here since 1982. Sure has changed. Hoped to hit several beach towns - east to Telchac Puerto to see the murals and the ladies who sell dulces at roadside stands. However, the 2:30 Costero bus was cancelled, or broke down, or something. So gave up on that and crammed into a combi (collective taxi) for the 7 peso ride straight to Chelem. There is a lot of wind here, and sand.
Here are some more images of Progreso.
