Manglares City Tour Progreso

Explore the mangroves of La Ría throug canals and tunnels and be amazed by its beauty and its richness. Then we take an ATV to get to Misné Balam, an old hacienda which was a proud producer on henequén, known as the green gold back in the day.

Tour description

Leaving from Mérida, we reach Progreso at 8 in the morning. La Ría receives us and it is time to equip ourselves to live the mangrove and its beauty, a basic kayak navigation class is part of our preparations. We enter the mangroves of Progreso de Castro navigating through canals and tunnels exploring the surroundings which have dozens of birds that transit the area in their migration as Garcetas, Martín Pescador, Storks, Herons, Orioles and many more. We will navigate back to our starting point to head back to our meeting point.

We will have the opportunity to enjoy food before transporting to "Paradise" where we equip ourselves and enter the mountain on board ATVs to visit Misné Balam (Misné, cat's tail, and Balam, jaguar.), or the tail of the Jaguar Cat. For many years it was an important site for the production of henequen and housed more than 150 settlers, many of them workers with their families. Nowadays it is a village abandoned by the inhabitants who until more than a decade ago lived there, tired in large part by the different appearances of ghosts, from the original owner of the hacienda, Don Fidencio G. Márquez, who was murdered in 1921 on one of the roads or "sac bé" that led from San Ignacio to his farm; even the child Juliancito, who committed suicide in the hacienda after being abused by one of the workers, going through other entities and inexplicable sounds that are presented there.
