  • just what we were looking for

    "Great time in small town Chelem. Seriously, people getting around on horseback! The house itself looks exactly as it does in the pictures. There were 6 of us(2 couples and 2 singles), and everybody had plenty of room and comfort in their own rooms. Enough glasses, dishes, pots and pans etc. for any need you would have. Kitchen appliances were all in good working order. House was clean and maybe it was the time of the year, but we didn't see many of the bugs we were warned about. However, bring some bug spray cause at dusk the mosquitos come out with a vengeance! Water in the 2 big jugs provided lasted for the week. The owners were good communicators, and the caretaker Joan was easily summoned if needed. Only had two problems while there… AC in the master conked out for the last day we were there(luckily the temp had dropped that night!) and we did go a day w/o showers due to a faulty water pump. However, even after some confusion with keys, the water was fixed and running by the time we got back from day long activities. Good hot water in the showers, best water pressure in the downstairs one (of course). Very secure property if you follow all the instructions to make it that way. Tacomaya right near the house was really good. The other expat places were good for a drink at night, but we opted for the more authentic places in town for eating. Take the combis to Progreso for only 8 pesos one way. They drop you off at a grocery store there, and there are way more places to eat in Progreso. We would recommend EL Toro for fried fish. If you stay out late in Progreso or get there after a late night in Merida, a taxi only cost us 100 pesos no matter how many people were in the car. Pool was awesome and well maintained. Maybe they could spring for some more chaise lounges or a few pool noodles(hint, hint). We wanted to stay in an owner occupied home , and were not disappointed! Security was returned within a day or so. We would recommend this home very highly!"

  • Amazing House and GREAT HOST!

    "My husband and I rented the property for 3 weeks. It is a super charming place. We instantly felt at home. It is right in the Center of Merida, so you walk to dinner and can go sightseeing without a car. Still the house is very quiet and affords a lot of privacy. We especially enjoyed the patio with the outdoor shower and the pool! The host went out of her way to accommodate our wishes. The house is super well maintained and very clean. We highly recommend spacious this gem!"

  • Awesome place!

    "Spacious and charming, the pictures can only hint at what a nice place it is. Spotlessly clean; nicely furnished with everything we could have wanted. All of the furniture is much nicer quality than usually seen in rental places; high quality beds & linens, hammocks are also provided if you prefer. The kitchen is also very well equipped, or you can walk a few blocks to a selection of restaurants The caretaker lives on property (in a separate house), and was attentive & helpful without being intrusive. All in all, a wonderful place to spend some time at the beach."

  • 6-night stay by active senior couple

    "We loved our stay at Casa Lux! 10 blocks from the lively central street with easy access to public transportation/small market/produce market, accurately represented on vrbo (photos and description), clean and well-maintained, owner particularly attentive (e.g. response to emails in advance, helpful information folio on-site, responded cheerfully to all our inquiries while we were there. Highly recommend this upstairs property to one or two people who want to be near Merida center, yet in a quiet neighborhood."

Progreso Travel Tips

Fair Weather and Fairer Days: Progreso Vacation Rentals

Just beyond the capital of Merida, cradled between emerald waters and golden sands, is the city of Progreso. It is a haven for the weary, offering quiet streets and local charm. Its centralized location makes it perfect for those seeking diversity (with many offerings of popular beaches and shops). Its innate atmosphere makes it perfect for those who simply need to relax. It stands as the answer for any who want peace. And with Progreso vacation rentals that peace is sure to last.

Surround Yourself With the sea With Progreso Resorts

It's the cliché you've always wanted: a hammock swung between two palms, the waves lazily stirring, a secluded day with only the sun for company. You think that exists only in a fantasy. Well think again. Progreso is the definition of easy breezes. Your time will be spent admiring the spectacular scenery, the picturesque town. Stroll through the shops and revel in the lack of hustling crowds. And then, if you hunger for a faster pace, you can simply drive to the neighboring areas, like Merida and its many attractions, or Chelem with its wild coast. You can have it all.

Find True Luxury With Yucatan Condos

Progreso allows you the freedom to be truly lazy, to tempt yourself away from the perils of work. But laziness doesn't have to be kept to a hotel, where all that lounging will seem monotonous in one room. Treat yourself to a more efficient, more stylish, alternative: rental homes. Think of them as investments toward your good intentions. You want the best vacation, after all. That's not going to happen if you're stuck in a hotel. Progreso is for the family who needs a break from their obligations. Why leave one hectic schedule for another? Why not instead just relax?
