Progreso can be a little sleepy at night, Merida,(a $2 bus trip 20 minutes away) rocks. Active club scene, arts and culture events, and a kick ass Mardi Gras.
If you want a resort town, this isn't the place. It's safe. The people are friendly. The fish is fresh. You don't need to speak Spanish, but if you are open to learning it, the locals will help. And it's all so affordable.
