* If you want a place full of tourists, restaurants, and other amenities just like the USA or Canada, Progreso is not the place to be. If you want the experience of authentic Mexican culture among friendly locals, Progreso is the place to be.

* Mostly Spanish is spoken here. (However you can get by easily with a Spanish phrase book) You will be immersed in a community of friendly, helpful, and serene people. The crime rate is very low for most of the Yucatan, as its roots are founded by the legacy of the peaceful Mayan culture.

* Progreso's beaches are safe and tranquil making them great for swimming. A nearby marina provides windsurfing and jet-ski rentals.

* Grocery stores, markets, pharmacies, and many restaurants are within easy walking distance. A car is not necessary, however driving a rented car in Mexico is easy and safe, and can make it much easier to get around. The house is one and a half blocks from the bus route, making it easy to ride around town. An air-conditioned bus to Merida leaves the bus terminal every 15 minutes for less than $3 return.

* a golf course only 20 minutes away, or visit the city of Merida, Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza, Uxmal, or the Loltun caves. Enjoy excursions into the mangrove swamps, or take a trip to see the flamingo colonies. You can swim in the cenote at Dzibilchaltun, only 15 minutes away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are Canadians who have lived in Progreso Yucatan since February 2008. When we were deciding where we were going to move, we wanted a place where there weren't too many foreigners, but just enough so that we didn't feel isolated. We have wonderful Mexican neighbours and live in a real community. Our goal was to live in a real Mexican town and learn to speak Spanish. We love this area, the kind people, the many attractions and the warm weather year round.

Why the Owner Chose Progreso, Yuc., Mexico:
We chose this property for it's proximity to the Malecon. There is no need for a car here, you are well located to walk to restaurants and stores. A bus route is close by and a taxi from downtown costs just a couple of dollars.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Our lower level unit is wheel chair accessible without being institutional. There are grab bars beside the toilet and in the shower. The shower is wheel-in. Renting two or all three of our suites could make this property a perfect place for a large family while giving everyone a little private space as well.
