There are several good restaurants within 5 minutes plus a produce stand, small grocery with basic necessities, pharmacy, liquor store and internet café right in town. It is located in the state of Yucatan, which is absolutely, positively the safest area in all of Mexico.

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT PROGRESO: It's approximately 10 minutes from Chelem. There is a large Walmart owned 'everything' store (Bodega Aurrera), several restaurants on the malecon “boardwalk” and a cruise ship pier that you can see from our beach!

Our property manager grew up in Mexico but spent 10 years in the US so she speaks both Spanish & English. She lives locally and will be available during your stay should you need her assistance.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: We are Cat and Joe, a couple living and working in Florida. We always wanted to own beachfront property and were fortunate enough to find this house. We decided to rent it out when we are not able to use it, so Mi Casa es tu Casa.

                  Why the Owner Chose Progreso:
                  We fell in love with the area - it isn't crowded with tourists like in Cancun or Playa del Carmen. It's an oceanfront paradise with warm weather year round, located in a sleepy quiet fishing village. If you are ready to get away and totally relax this is your house!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The ocean views of the Gulf of Mexico from the wraparound balcony sold us on this house.
