A friend rented Casa Romi's this year from January through March. My wife and I stayed with him for part of the time. She, only for a week... me, for the month of March. The house is just as it is shown in the photos and was very comfortable. Each bedroom has it's own full washroom and there is a washroom on the first floor as well. The kitchen is small but functional and has everything you need to cook for yourself if you wish. If you want to eat out, there are so many restaurants close by (walking distance) that you could eat in a different one every day for weeks and not repeat. A typical full dinner, including a beer, glass of wine or cocktail will run about 80 to 120 pesos - about 6 to 10 dollars CAD. A full breakfast is around 40 to 60 pesos. The seafood is exceptionally fresh and just wonderful.
The walk to the centre of Progreso is about 25 minutes but we did it quite often. It is better in the morning or evening when it is not quite so hot. We always felt safe no...
