PROGRESO, YUC.- After the bad weather generated by cold front 31, which struck on Sunday Jan. 27 at 11:30 AM, the beach of the Malecon awoke on Tuesday Jan. 29 with better conditions for the tourists of the “Carnival Valor” cruiser.
The “Carnival Valor” arrived with 3,198 passengers, but only 300 remained in the city, the rest took the tours to the archaeological sites of Chichen Itza, Uxmal and Dzibilchaltun.
A Progreso hat vendor said: “Most of the foreigners who came on the Valor had beards, long hair and tattoos on hands, arms, legs and back; most of them wore black shirts. They looked like rock’nrollers, most of them only spent money on beer, they did not buy any handicrafts, they did not set foot on any of local the restaurants, they only walked along the beach with their beers in hand”.
So Tuesday Jan. 29 was not a good day for Progreso’s tourist service providers, because the few tourists who stayed at the port, did not leave a good economic spill for the port businesses, unlike the passengers of the “Carnival Fantasy” that arrived on Monday Jan. 28th.
Just a few passengers hired massages. Some rented jet skis to ride in front of the boardwalk. And the bananas did not have absolutely any customers at all, so their operators had a very bad “Crucero” day.
The beach still has some seaweed, but there are parts that were cleared off with machinery by the City Council and restaurants’ staff.
