Summer in Progreso

The school year has ended and summer is upon us. Starting in mid July, and for the next 8 weeks, our tranquil fishing village will be invaded by vacationers. All week long we feel the influx of people. By the week's end, we average between 75,000 - 100,000+ visitors. Now that is a lot of company! Popular restaurants and retail businesses from around the peninsula, take advantage of our increased population and set up temporary locations, "to make hay while the sun is shining". Believe me, the sun shines all week long and is at it's brightest Friday through Sunday! The Malecon (Beach Boardwalk), is host to many free activities and concerts. The one constant all summer long is the people watching. The show is priceless and never ending! El Senor and I really enjoy this temporary craziness and try to take advantage of all it has to offer. With each passing year, I am left wondering if this is a glimpse into the crystal ball? Are we seeing the future of Progreso? For now, this is simply looked upon as the summer season. But, with Tourism at the forefront of future developments, the day is coming. It may take 5 - 10 years, but one day, everyday will be summer in Progreso..............

  1. Change is constant these days. Still, we would hate to see Progreso become as crowded as during the summer months. Great photos...they tell it like it is.
