For those looking for a tailor-made Progreso shore excursion to see the best of Merida City - a private guide and transportation. The highlights of Merida City, sightseeing and some incredible shopping...that is what you will enjoy of this guided excursion. Your private excursion will begin right outside the cruise terminal where your certified guide and transportation will be waiting, so no need to travel into town on the shuttle.

Merida is located just south of Progreso so travel time is short. Your guide will be giving you all kinds of information about Merida, the Mayan culture and the Yucatan. As the transportation arrives in Merida, you will be struck by its beauty and colonial architecture.

Merida dates back to the Mayan civilization as an important center and has one of the highest Mayan populations in the country. The culture can be seen throughout the city from the cuisine to the people. After invasions of French and Spanish conquerors, the new city was established in 1542 combining the new with the old.

On this private shore excursion to Merida, you will pass down Montejo Boulevard which was inspired by the Champs Elysees in France. There are other examples of French and Spanish influences found throughout the city that your guide will point out. Some of the other main highlights include the Cathedral built in 1774 with stones that came from the Mayan pyramid of Xbacluum- Chaan after the invaders disassembled it. View the Yucatan Monument that took over 11 years to finish, the House of Montejo built in 1549 and the Government Palace built in the 19th century.

Merida is also known for its bazaar or Center Market, home to some of the best shopping! From finely constructed clothes to crafts to almost anything imaginable, enjoy browsing and hunting for deals before you head back to your Progreso cruise terminal.

Our guide and driver were awesome! They took us into Marida to exactly where we wanted to go. We asked to go to a market that the locals went to and were not disappointed. If you want to go anywhere this is the group to hire.

We took the shore excursion on 1/5/2017 and it was great! Our tour guide PRISCILA was wonderful She explained so much and answered any questions that any tourists asked. Enjoyed seeing the city of Merida and hearing the history of the city. It is well worth the cost and the food that we were served was very good. Everyone that was connected with the excursion were very professional and made it very enjoyable. Thank you!

This excursion was perfect! We had a nice drive from Progreso to Merida. Our guide Eduardo was very informative and extremely nice. We had ample shopping time. The market is something I have never seen before, the church was so beautiful and lunch...well, lunch was just the BEST. Jose and his crew made us feel welcome and kept us entertained the entire time. I can't say enough about this exursion, we have cruised many times before and we all agree this was the best excursion we have ever taken.

It was so nice to have a guide all to ourselves. The drive was short to Merida from Progreso and the guide made the time fly. The city itself was beautiful - modern in a sense as well as very old world feel too. The shopping was "rad" as my grand daughter put it. This really is a shoppers heaven with so much variety and excellent prices on everything. We did have refreshments but did not eat anything due to a late breakfast.
