    Sounds like a great place for a holiday. Would love to see the flamingoes and meet the friendly locals. One bad thing is that it's so far away from where I live.

    Hi Aafia,,, Taiwan is nice if you get away from the big smoggy cities.... Progreso looks like a nice little place in Mex, hope it doesnt get overdeveloped like other beaches there... Cheers...

    Looks like we may have been there at the same time. FYI, your transportation tip is equally true for those of us from the West Coast. Great page!

    We loved that trip to Celestun, the flamingos, birds, cenote, etc - shame I lost most of my photos! Good tip about driving yourself - nice to hear - we want to do that next time . leyle
