Thousands of local, national and foreign tourists flocked to the beaches of Progreso this Easter Sunday.
From the early morning thousands drove the 36 kilometers distance (22 miles), between Mérida and Progreso seeking to enjoy a sunny day in the most popular and busy coastal town in the state of Yucatan.
According to Milenio, more than 16,000 people arrived to Progreso by 3 o`clock in the afternoon.
A large number of cars could be seen heading to the port that literally was “invaded” by local, national and foreign visitors who sought a place to sunbathe, drink, eat and enjoy the sea.
In this regard, the mayor of Progreso, José Cortés Góngora, confirmed in an interview with SIPSE, that Sunday March 27th, has been one of the busiest days so far this holiday period.
“Since last Thursday March 24th we started to see a significant increase in the number of visitors to restaurants and tourism related businesses, and local hotels had 100 percent occupancy, this has been certainly an excellent weekend for our town,” declared the mayor.
The mayor concluded that they expect to exceed the figure of 200,000 visitors before the end of this holiday period next April 4th.
