Progreso Yucatan is a safe fishing, port and beach community a short 25 minute drive to the arts and cultural capitol of Mexico---Merida Yucatan. I have lived here for the last 6-7 years as a local tour guide and Sailing instructor.
I have been a water fanatic all of my life , first growing up in Alberta Canada next to a lake where I learned about boats, all types of boats sail and power. As well as I learned a love of nature and the fragility of ecosystems. I have seen first hand how the aquatic life has dwindled over the last 7 years and now is the time to start educating and teaching people about the marine life and the interconnectedness between mangroves and the sea. For the last 8 months my wife, my art director and my partner have built a Museum into a concept taking roots. Progreso, Yucatan is a city of 45,000 people on the northern tip of the gulf of Mexico far removed from the hustle and bustle of Playa del Carmen, Cancun and Puerto Vallarta. Yucatan is considered the safest region of all of the 31 states of Mexico an considered one of the safest in all of latin America. Come help us build and grow the Museum into a fabulous place for learning and connecting tourists with locals with a common goal---preserving Maritime history and conserving and protecting the precious waterways (the Sea and the mangroves)
