Are you a ghost fan? This excursion is for you! Explore a ghost town while riding an ATV on this Progreso shore excursion. You will also see old-style Mexico including haciendas and other architectural styles. Great for photo buffs, be sure to bring your camera or phone, there are some great opportunities on this excursion. For a different and incredibly unique way to experience Mexico, this is the All Terrain Vehicle cruise shore excursion for you.

You will start this adventurous ATV excursion day by meeting your guide (detailed instructions are on your E-Ticket). You'll then be shown to comfortable, and air-conditioned transportation. It's only a 10-minute ride from the pier to Progreso then you'll be taken to the ATV base camp. Drivers need to show their driver's licenses; the minimum age to drive solo is 18 years. Children ages 14 and up may drive riding double with a parent on the back of the ATV. Once the helmets are on, you're off the Misnebalam Ghost Town. The drive there is approximately 1 hour on trails.

The town of Misnebalam was inhabited from 1910 to 2010 when the last 21 inhabitants decided to leave the town. But, Misnebalam had its heyday during the henequen era. Henequen is a plant that is used to make textiles. But, the town had secrets. Townspeople believed they had witches influenced by Chaneques, gremlin-like spirits that protected the land but chased away intruders. They were said to have done mischievous things like moving objects to scare people. Some say that the mischievous creatures are still there.

Misnebalam also had women they thought were witches. Witches they believed were influenced by Xtabay, a woman who had been loving and kind but also had a different side. It was believed that when she was buried fragrant flowers grew from her grave. Her nemesis was named Utz-Colel who was virtuous, but cold and without feeling. When Utz-Colel was buried, a cactus with a bad scent grew on her grave. Witchcraft was not looked upon kindly and there had been public executions of suspected witches. Paranormal activity still exists today; there is still believed to be an active ghost named "Julian" who died back in 1920. You'll learn more about the fascinating history from your bilingual guide. Guests will have approximately 30-45 minutes at Misnebalam where you will visit the exterior area. Today, the few buildings stand abandoned and neglected - for safety reasons, guests are not allowed to enter them.  

After your visit to Misnebalam, you'll hop back on your ATV and visit the Paraiso Blue Lagoon just a short distance away. You'll be able to take a dip and enjoy the refreshing waters while surrounded by nature. You will have a relaxing stop at the lagoon before hopping back on your ATV and heading to Scapatta Beach Club in Progreso for a relaxing beach break.

At Scapatta Beach Club, you will find beach chairs, umbrellas, a swimming pool, kayaks, paddle boats, stand-up paddle boards, and free WiFi. There is even a kid's club! The non-motorized water sports are on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Take a stroll along the beach, you can buy a beverage from the bar, or purchase food items from an authentic Mexican menu that will also include American favorites; relax in a hammock in the shade with a full ocean view. This is a day you won't want to miss. Or for the best value, add on the All-Inclusive package and get all your drinks and food included (see shopping cart options)!

Available drinks for purchase at the bar include Pina Coladas, Margaritas, Soft drinks, Mixed drinks, Beer (Corona and other Mexican beers owned by Corona such as Modelo, Pacifico, etc.), and bottled purified water. All mixed drinks are available with or without alcohol.

Available for purchase from the restaurant you can find: Panuchos (traditional Yucatecan dish), Salbutes (traditional Yucatecan dish), Quesadillas, Tacos, Chicken Fajitas, Salsa and Chips, Guacamole, Nachos, Pizza, Burgers and Hot dogs. Some foods are subject to change.

After that and if time allows, you'll get to do a bit of sightseeing and shopping in the town of Progreso. Your transportation will then return you to your Progreso cruise ship port after spending a unique ATV shore excursion in Progreso, Mexico.

Meetup is not at the port, rather in downtown Progreso so be sure to take the free 15 minute shuttle to the downtown area where you will meet the rep. Ask the Excursions Tour booth at the port if you need directions to the shuttle location. The ATVs were great, the experience was top notch. My party of three were the only participants that day. For us, it was the ATV guide. Just a genuinely nice person. A local of the area he was the highlight. His ranch where we started had an array of animals that he keeps as pets including a baby gator, pigs, horses, toucans and parrots. It was just a great, lowkey day. Money well spent. We rode the trails, explored the area and listened to our guide's extensive knowledge of what is essentially his home. We asked to skip the beach club at the end because we wanted to just walk around the downtown area before we boarded the ship and had a great lunch at Restaurant Bulevard 21. But, the ATVs and the great host were the absolute highlight.

the original guide Tony was late and no one around could direct us to a meeting point, another tour company contacted ShoreExcursioneer and helped us. Tony did not explain that we would essentially be driving in the back country and the area did make us a bit nervous. The two nice young men who lead us in the ATV ride were great Jesus and (I am very sorry but I do not remember how to say the other young man's name ) were excellent! The ATV's were a little rustic, but not too bad. then Axel the Taxi Driver took us to the beach club, and they directed us to the beach, there was no food/beverage service on the beach and many people came by to try and sell us their various goods,it was a bit annoying. The last new taxi driver was not going to take us back to the shuttle until Axel who was assisting, spoke up and the taxi tip was meant for him.

The ATV riding was great and we had a good amount of time on them! The beach wasn’t okay. Chairs weren’t comfortable and food wasn’t good but we made the most of it. Next time I won’t go for the all inclusive part of the package as I feel it was not worth it.

Before booking this excursion, I already knew that haven't nobody traveled to this excursion in a while due to the pandemic so I was kind of skeptical of the ghost town lol. BUT I COULD REASSURE YOU ALL THAT YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED! My family and I just went on a cruise last week and we decided to go with the ATV because it was the most appealing thing to do in Progreso. The staff was nice and friendly, spoke english and spanish, there was transportation included to and from the port, and the guide was easy to find and excited to meet us when we arrived at the port. Whenever your boat arrive to the port I suggest you get off as soon as the boat is cleared from docking. We got off the boat about almost an hour after we arrived in Progreso (which was around 10:00am we got off at 11am lol running late per usual) and the guide said she almost left us because they was waiting for a while lol. Also it does takes about 25-30m mins to get to the location of the ATV's so don't get nervous lol you are in good hands! The dirt trail that you will go on is a long ride so you will get GOOD drive time on the ATV's for sure! We rode the ATV's at least 2 hours minimum! You will get your money worth for sure. DON'T WEAR NOTHING YOU CARE ABOUT BECAUSE YOU WILL BE GETTING DIRT AND DUST ALL ON YOU ! They provide goggles and a helmet for protection. I wore my crocs for my crocs lovers they didn't say nothing about them but definitely wear some kind of closed toe shoe unless you want your feet to be dusty. The ATV's was fast! they definitely wasn't slow they had speed to them ! They have two guides on the dirt road too so you won't get lost or stranded! Bring water it will be hot! After the ATV we went to the beach club and it was cute! The pool water was warm and they have an unlimited food and drinks (including alcoholic beverages and shots!) The food was good and the drinks were strong and the server kept them coming at a good pace didn't have to wait for service for a long time. I rate this excursion a 10! you will not be disappointed and you will have fun!

We had so much fun on the ATV's that we skipped the Beach Break so I can not comment on the quality of the beach. The history of the abandoned Hacienda and farm was very interesting and enjoyable, but the ATV riding was the best. If you are interested in an excursion that brings excitement and enjoyment, this is the one for you.

Super fun excursions with my friends/family. Would definitely do again and it was worth every penny. They provided a long ride in addition to the tour. My only suggestion is to provide a cooler with cold water for the guest. Definitely a book and have a blast excursion.

This excursion was a lot of fun, we met one of the tour guides right outside of the cruise terminal, made our final payment and were off the farm. The drive to the farm was little lengthy but very well worth it in the end! At the farm we were given a safety briefing, safety vest, and helmets and away we went. The tour was on back roads and a lot of fun, we had so much fun playing in the mud too! The ghost town was so cool and we enjoyed it a lot! After we made it back to the camp we were taken to a local resort type place and was able to get a yummy lunch and swim in the ocean to cool off. I would highly recommend this to everyone!

Went on this excursion last week - very helpful staffer got us onto a van right on schedule to a local beach club, "Silcer Malecon" to relax for a few minutes before being taken to our tour guide and ATVs a few miles away. The ATVs were in really good condition and easy to learn how to use (they will teach you if need be and are helpful and patient). Once you are on your ATV (I heavily recommend if there's more than one of you to get your own for each person) it's about 25+ minutes to the ghost town (during the trip they even have a dude on a motorcycle follow in the rear to make sure no one falls behind) and at the town the guide tells some cool stories and gives you plenty of time to take pictures and relax. After the ghost town, we drive a little further to an old mine / quarry now filled with water to hang out for a bit. Afterwards we went back to Silcer for some swimming and time on the beach. Very relaxed, well coordinated and all around an awesome time, it was by far the highlight of my vacation! (P.S. As others have mentioned, be sure to wear shorts and sneakers that you don't mind getting muddied up for the ATV ride!)

This was a really fun excursion but be prepared to learn that you are only on the ATVs for 2hrs and then at the beach for 2hrs and that you will have to wait for about an hour or more before the excursion even starts as they are waiting for more people to fill the van. Over all, once we got to the ATVs this was a really fun excursion. Jose, our tour guide was amazing. We actually got to drive the ATVs how we wanted and had a blast doing it. The driver of the front ATV(the owner of the ATVs and the one the tour guide rides with) was racing with us. They made it fun. No drivers license was ever asked for and my 9 year old drove with my husband behind him helping him. You will get EXTREMELY dusty. Make sure you wear the goggles they provide, it is serious dust. The "Ghost town" as they call it was just a church and a Ranch. Not much to it. The story behind it is interesting tho. On the way back we stopped at the Cenotes and that was beautiful seeing that side of Progresso. We opted out of the beach break as we had spent the day before at the beach all day. The time on the ATVs was amazing tho.

So much fun! The two tour guides was super helpful and had a great personality . We laughed and took pictures in ghost town. We hanged out for a bit . Everything was perfect ! They got us back on time for the cab. We also had all you can eat and drink at the beach before the ATV, and it’s legit ALL YOU CAN DRINK AND EAT ! The beach isn’t pretty , but the food and drinks were awesome . Even got a massage on the beach.

The weather was clear, but it had rained the day before leaving many mud puddles on the trails through the woods. We started out kind of slow, single file with guides front and back til the guide assessed everybody's riding ability and then we stepped up the pace a bit. Once we picked up the pace, the fun really started with people kicking up mud and going full speed through water and other obstacles. Helmets are provided, but a pair of glasses or goggles for eye protection is highly recommended. We went to a private beach afterwards. They have a changing area, open bar and some food, but you can get better value by purchasing a package ($15.00) that includes food and drinks. The quality of the food was not so good. The drinks were strong, but used cheap alcohol. If you aren't drinking for effect, you can't go wrong with the beer.

Woah! This was totally different to any excursion I've done in the past but I really enjoyed it. The tour guy was very helpful and help us get settled in our ATVs which were very safe. He gave us our safety gear and off we went! I love hearing ghost stories and paranormal events and this was the first time I actually got to be in a place where those stories take place in. These were different to any of the stories we hear back home and it really is a creepy place but totally safe. It was a thrilling and unique experience and recommend it to any one who likes the mystery and adventure.

Cool excursion! My husband and I are fanatics of supernatural and ghost/mystery stories. You can feel the suspense in the air and hearing the scary stories that happend in this place makes it more mysterious. We drove around the ghost town and saw evidence of the stories that were being told to us. It was really eerie but we are glad we did this trip. Make sure you take clothes because you will get a bit dirty from all the driving. We later left and drove off to a beatiful lagoon were we took some beatiful pictures, and a relaxing beack break aferwards were we took advantage of the great prices and bought a round of drinks for our small excursion group. Silcer beach club I believe it was called they had a great menu, great prices and great service.

My wife and I had a great time exploring the ghost town in Progesso. The guides are very helpful, descriptive, and fun to be around. This excursion is an adventure so be prepared to get a little dirty and to explore rural Mexico. No ATV experience is necassary and plenty of protective equipment is provided. Although the tour guides will teach you how to drive and show you a great time, you will have to take control and drive yourself through some rough terrain and trails for about an hour there and an hour back to the drop off. This excursion is not for the light hearted or for anyone scared of an unusual area, the supernatural, or horror stories. You will eventually have to leave your comfort zone as you explore a new culture as well as learn about the suffering many people endured at this compound. The town is said to be haunted by tortured souls and cursed by those that were enslaved by the owners. There is evidence of witchcraft and satanic rituals performed by slaves of the past and locals seeking to curse their enemies. There is no concern for your safety though considering it is very secluded and completely abandoned. I would not recommend anyone under the age of 13 or someone overly superstitious. The stories are creepy but really happened. History can be unnerving but interesting and fun at the same time. The guides will stop at a convenience store for drinks and snacks but no food is provided. Definitely bring a water bottle or CASH to buy one because the locals are unhappy to take foreign credit cards. Leave the alcohol too. No need to drink and drive their 4 wheelers through the woods and risk crashing into a tree. In the end, we had a blast exploring a new culture and learning about the horrific past of this place. Please choose this excursion if you are willing to adventure into the unknown and want to see the real Progresso. And always tip your guides! Peace
