The quiet village of Telchac, Yucatan

Telchac, Yucatan.   This port town is about 20 minutes from Uaymitun and 30 minutes from Progreso, making it just far enough from the dense population areas of Uaymitun, Chicxulub and Tropical Riviera to maintain a social, slow,  laidback feeling. Telchac Puerto has a lot of useful services including private beach houses for rent, several seafood restaurants, a small market, harbor that has a gas pump, fried-fish stands, etc.   There is a town plaza and a park with a children’s play area. There are Mayan Temples 6 kilometers inlands (Xcambo) and a light house on the small seaside promenade. For a delicious seafood lunch, don’t miss all the restaurants in the mail plaza, their ceviches, fried fish, shrimp cocktails, and fish fillet are superb. During July and August the fair is in town with booths offering foods, knick knacks and mechanical rides.
