We will be arriving in Progreso by Carnival on Oct24. Carnival does not seem to offer very many good shore excursion in progreso. The ones that are good are really expensive. Can anyone advise how much you can get the basically same shore excursions for if you wait and book when you get off the ship? Are these safe and reliable? We cant afford to miss getting back in time to get on the ship.
You can book most of the excursions offered on the ship right in Progreso. Take the free shuttle along the 5 mile pier to town and when you get off, there will many a salesperson offering trips. Autoprogreso is your best bet, as they are also the ones doing the tours being sold on the ship (at a higher price in most cases!) You will be back in time for return to the ship, no worries.
