75 days….Hell Yes!
On Wednesday, January 15th we will be in Progreso, Yucatan, Mexico. Progreso has the longest pier of all ports of call at nearly 4 miles. A shuttle takes passengers from the ship into Progreso, sorry no walking on the pier.
It was decided by a previous vote that we would make our excursion the Flamingo/Lagoons/Ruins of Xcambo. The cost is $19 a person (yes even Uriah is $19) thru autoprogreso.com and lasts approximately 2 1/2 hours. I would like to have everyone reserve their spots in the next couple of weeks. Let me know if you need help in making the online reservation.
With the additional time spent in Progreso we can all just explore. There is shopping, beaches, and a lighthouse tour all by the pier. We just need to make sure we are back on the Triumph in plenty of time before it leaves port. Suggestion is one hour prior to the ship departing, so by 3:00 pm Central time.
Reviews that I have read say that the beaches are rocky with strong undertows. Water shoes/Aqua socks are encouraged and safety in the water a must. You know I worry!!!!
