After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive at Progresso’s main square and location of the Corona Beach Restaurant which sits on one of the most popular stretches of sand in Progreso.
From here, you are on your own for the next three hours to do as you please. The beach here is wide and spacious, so you will have plenty of room to find your place in the sun and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere. Perhaps take a refreshing swim in the sea, stroll up and down the shore, or simply lie back and enjoy the tropical music playing in the background.
Lounge chairs and umbrellas are available if you prefer shade, and plenty of palm trees provide natural cover from the sun. “Palapas,” which are traditional Mexican shelters with roofs of palm leaves, can also be found along the beach.
Progreso’s concrete pier, the world’s longest, provides quite the backdrop for the beach party because it juts nearly four miles into the Gulf of Mexico. The pier’s length was necessary to reach water deep enough to accommodate large ships as Progreso sits on a limestone shelf that falls away gradually.
While there is plenty to enjoy at the beach, including an open bar, you might like shopping, as well. A variety of stores is just across the street and is well worth exploring. Finally, after hours of relaxing, you will re-board your coach and transfer back to the ship.
