I HAVE ONE MORE QUESTION. SO SORRY--- i heard somewhere, possibly on here, that the beach water etc. is not as clear etc. in progreso than toward cancun. it had something to do with the fact that progreso is in the gulf of mexico while cancun and qroo are on the carribean sea.
does anyone have any experience with either of these situations and would care to comment. I only have a deposit on my house in progreso and would be prepared to lose that if the sea was dirty or unusable in progreso vs qroo.
i would sincerely appreciate advice.
In my opinion the gulf is nice most of the year. Norte's mess thing up for days though. In Progresso the water is nicer east of the pier than further west.
The Riviera Maya Caribbean is fantastic, with great warm water and lots of life. I dive regularly and can see 100 feet to the bottom on most days.
