What is going on members of the Barrio Jon coming to you from the bus station in Mérida Adriana and have been here for almost 2 weeks And we’ve yet to hit the beach I mean we’re in the Yucatan We’re taking a round trip bus to Progreso Which is the closest beach to Merida And it is barely over 2 dollars For a round trip ride I’ve got a good feeling about today The bus is boarding and Adriana is beach ready I’m ready We’ve got our bag Vamos. Vamos One hour later we are in Progreso And I have to give the people at the bus company credit To exit to get to the beach You actually have to walk through a market Where people were immediately circling me trying to get me to buy stuff And we weren’t really that interested We are walking towards the beach And i’m seeing signs in English This city is definitley a bit touristy This is the first time I’ve actually seen dollars quoted anywhere People speaking English A cruise ship has ported It’s actually kind of crowded with people. This feels like the least authentic part of the Yucatan To me that we’ve been to so far After dodging about 10 different touts We finally settled on this set up here We’ve got 2 beach chairs A palapa And a table for 200 pesos About 10 dollars Maybe a little bit more than average Because the cruise ships are here But I think it’s actually pretty cool Yeah we have shade We have plenty of shade Now i’m going to go in the water for the first time I could probably use a little bit of color not going to lie I’m adjusting to the water pretty quickly It’s 80 degrees out right now So I think this is considered fairly cold by most local people’s standards How do you like this beach so far I’m enjoying it Very nice. It’s not the most beautiful beach But it’s fine The only thing I don’t like so far are all the people around Trying to sell things But it’s okay We’re leaving the beach It is a little after 3:30 We’re going to this bar called Eladio’s That my friend Javier said was worth it because if you order a beer You get a bunch of.. What are they called Botanas Like Tapas, snacks We’re going to see if we can maximize this system Alright Adriana I’ll let you translate this to English It says that you only have to worry about asking for the beers or cocktails And the restaurant is going to be in charge of your food We’re starting with this We got all of this for just ordering one beer each Wow. Our friend also recommended that we tip the waiter after the first round arrived So we did that And we got 4 plates to start We haven’t even ordered a 2nd beer And all this just came Is this the best deal ever for a beer? It’s even better than Granada I swear We were to afraid to order another beer I’m not even kidding you We got 8 or 9 plates for 2 dollars and 25 cents a person The big thing was we tipped the guy just a little bit After we ordered the first beer And that was one of the best deals I’ve ever seen Seriously Definitley, I didn’t expect that If I’m ever to do a 10 dollar challenge video in Mexico I may have to come back to this spot Alright guys overall, I still felt like Progreso was a bit of a tourist trap You walk by, people are jumping on you left and right. People trying to sell you stuff The beach is so so I would recommend this spot if you’re in Mérida You don’t want to spend the money to rent a car And you just have to escape to the beach for a day It’s 1 dollar in each direction For that it’s worth it Otherwise if you want a beach getaway this is not the place Definitley no. Just to escape Alright guys hope you enjoyed this episode from Progreso We’ve got a lot more coming up From the Yucatan Make sure to subscribe if you are new Thank you so much for watching Until next time.
