Playa del Carmen, Mexico to Progreso, Mexico

Decided to leave Playa del Carmen, I have had my fill of the quasi American Beach town (i.e. Panama City Beach, Florida, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina). Playa del Carmen is a beautiful place, but there is nothing truly Mexican about the place…McDonalds, Burger King, Starbucks, Wal Mart, Sams, Sears…I could have stayed in the USA for that crap. I could only imagine this was a small town 20 years ago until Corporate America showed up, and the place lost its Mexican soul. It was about a 4 hour ride to Progreso, and the ride was uneventful. I arrived around 2PM and found a clean but very old hotel on the malecon for about 20 dollars per night. I found that Progreso is very inexpensive, and has really great seafood at half the cost of food in Playa del Carmen.
