In Tours & Talks by Authentic Mexico we are specialized in the adventure tourism on the coast of Progreso , in the state of Yucatán. We collaborate with service providers from all areas to offer you from kayaking to archaeological tours for all ages and at affordable prices.
We propose independent or combined activities for your visit or team building event like these:
- Mangrove Progress Tour : we take care of the transportation from the city of Mérida to take you to Progreso de Castro where to share with you a brief lesson about kayaking. When the whole group is ready we will begin an adventure during which we will explore some of the canals in the area by browsing. The talk of the visit will help you to know the importance of the bird ecosystem that your home has here, highlighting storks and herons. This walk includes food at sunset around a campfire that we ourselves will make.
- Excursion to Misnebalam : this time we will use ATV vehicles with which to reach the Jaguar Cat's Tail. There the legends about the former Henequen Hacienda are currently uninhabited. In spite of having spent more than a decade since its inhabitants left, there are presences from the aftermath that have their origin in the tragic end of their owner and the child Juliancito.
Discover the coasts of Yucatan with Tours & Talks by Mexico Authentic aboard one of the easiest boats to handle.
We propose an adventure in which we leave from Mérida to arrive about 8 am in the morning to Progreso. Right on the estuary we will equip ourselves and dedicate some time to a little lesson on how we should go kayaking.
Then we will walk among the mangroves of Progreso de Castro . We will reach them using various tunnels and some channels that are both habitat and migratory passage zone for many bird species. Some with which we can find are the herons and egrets, the kingfisher, the big storks or the curious orioles.
At dusk we will be heading to the Tarquina to share the food we will cook in a traditional fire. While we are doing this path we will see how the shades of these landscapes change accompanying their trip to the sun while hiding to give way to the night. After this pleasant time we will return to the same point from which we left.
Throughout the whole day we will provide you with transportation to the different points of the excursion, the assistance of a specialized guide and the talk of the environment we will visit, the life jacket to wear in the kayak and a small lunch with water, fruit and an energy bar.
Take an interesting tour of the most visited points of Yucatan with the ideas that we suggest in Tours and Talks. One of the ones we recommend is the four-wheeler expedition because, thanks to these vehicles, we can go through unpaved roads and natural terrain.
We will visit the Jaguar Cat's Tail , a place also called Misné Balam, and we will do it from Mérida taking care of the transportation you need from this city. Once we are all the group together we will head to Paradise where we will descend in this community that belongs to the state of Yucatán.
There it will be where we will go up to the ATVs to travel on roads in the mountains with the goal of this part of the excursion the Ex Hacienda Henequenera . In the past, it centralized a large part of the henequen producers and had about 150 inhabitants who lived there with their family in most cases. At present we will find the abandoned village since its last settlers left more than 10 years ago. They tell past stories that fled from the ghostly apparitions of the owner, Don Fidencio, murdered almost a century ago, and little Juliancito, who took his own life after suffering the abuses of a worker. The guide who will accompany you will reveal that you still hear sounds that cannot be explained.
To take during the day we will bring water, sandwiches, fruit and energy bars.
