We live in a quaint house on a quiet street with bus access 1/2 block away to go to Progreso or Chicxulub
Our home is 1 bedrooms and 2 baths with an open concept kitchen /Living room ...we do not have air conditioners in our home but we do have an abundance of fans and a dehumidifier. The outside space is fully gated and secured.
We are located 2 blocks or "calles" from the beach and about a 10 minute bus ride to Chicxulub....where you will find market shopping and a medium sized grocery store. We also have larger grocery stores and Markets in Progreso which is about 15 bus ride.
Progreso is the largest port town in the Yucatan. Most of the surrounding areas are smaller fishing villages that still sustain thier living fishing...so fresh fish is abundant here. We have a beautiful Malecon ( walk way) that is perfect for taking a stroll on or watching a stunning sunset.
There are very large expat communities here so it is easy to make friends and learn more about this area. The Yucatan is know for its culture and ruins...which there is an abundance of both here. The Ruins are mostly a day trip...which you can access by car or take a day tour to see.
The Cuisine in Progreso is mainly Yucatecan and a variety of foreign foods also.The favorite here with the local people is fried whole fish or "pescado frito"...and ceviche.
Knowing a little spanish is helpful but not always necessary...I recommend... duolingo...an online learning tool.there are many who speak english and just as many that dont. The local people are very friendly and helpful .
We are 25 minutes away from Merida , which is a large Metropolitan City and a great place to shop or just see the beauty of this colonial city.
