With this Merida City Sightseeing and Shopping Excursion from Progreso, you will get a glimpse of this magnificent city.

Upon disembarking your ship, you just need to walk through the port shopping area and outside the Progreso cruise terminal where your friendly guide/driver will be waiting for you. You will board comfortable, air-conditioned transportation for the short, 30-minute ride into the capital city of Yucatan. In preparation for your arrival, your professional, English speaking guide will provide educational and entertaining anecdotes detailing the history and culture of Merida. DO NOT take the shuttle bus to Progreso downtown!

This beautiful, colonial city features Montejo Boulevard, styled after the Champs-Elysees of Paris and a large, fortress-like Cathedral built-in 1774 from stones of the Mayan pyramid of Xbacluum- Chaan. The Fatherland Monument, tracing the history of Mexico and Mayan people, the House of Montejo a 16th-century mansion, the Government Palace built in the 19th century, Plaza de Independencia, and countless venerable churches and squares highlight this delightful blend of colonial and Mayan heritage.

Before heading back to the ship and with time allowing, you will enjoy exploring a local Bazar or Market, home to some of the finest handmade clothing and crafts in the Yucatan. Track down your deal of the day, or simply enjoy browsing.

At the end of your shopping portion, you'll board again your transportation to return to your Progreso cruise terminal.

We took a tour out of Progresso to the city of Merida. Our tour guide Alberto was AMAZING! He was very informative and spoke clear English. We learned a lot about him and the city. I’ve taken other tours in different Mexican cities but this one was by far the best. He was so accommodating to our needs as well. We took a young child on the trip and he made extra stops so she could take potty breaks.
