Are you a ghost fan? This excursion is for you! Explore a ghost town and riding an ATV. There is also the ability to see old-style Mexico including the 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 excursion for you.

You will start this adventurous day by meeting your guide (detailed instructions are on your eticket). You'll then be shown to comfortable, and air-conditioned transportation. It's only a 10-minute ride off the pier to Progreso then you'll be taken to the ATV base camp. All ATVs are recent year models and kept in great condition. Driver's need to show their driver's licenses; 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 that were 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 mischevious 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 was 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 head to Silcer Beach Club for a relaxing beach break.

At Silcer, you will find beach chairs, umbrellas, swimming pool, kayaks, paddleboats, stand-up paddle board, 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, you can purchase food items off of 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!!

Available drinks for purchase at the bar include Pina coladas, Margaritas, Soft drinks, Mixed drinks, Beer (Corona and other Mexican beers own 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 Yucatencan dish), Salbutes (traditional Yucatetcan 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 times allow, 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 day in Mexico.

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.

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.

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!)

The atv excursion was so much fun! Shoreexcursioneer was waiting for us when we got off the ship and took us to the beach club where we would later have access to for the day. The guide for the atv trip was excellent. He was very knowledgable and extremely friendly. We would recommend this tour to our friends.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!
