Flamingos! After visiting the hacienda we drove to Port Progreso, on the Gulf of Mexico. Progreso is Merida's weekend beach resort and driving east along the coast we saw the back of beautiful, beautiful homes lining the coast. Also on this road, on the opposite side from the ocean, is a flamingo viewing tower. I think this must be a shallow estuary. Here's Omar looking for flamingos, we saw a few, but they were far away, you could hardly see them through the binoculars.
Further down the road we stopped to look at this big group of flamingoes, must closer than from the watchtower.
