A day in Nuevo Progresso

Nuevo Progresso Mexico is about 15 miles from my home in Weslaco, so when one needs antibotics, liqour, a root canal, or homemade tortillas its just as simple as crossing the border. I went along with a cousin, so that she could buy her medications and had so much fun.
After you buy your medications you can relax take a seat and enjoy a taco.
Dentist anyone?.... They're a dime a dozen!
There is always something to buy in the streets..
Where else can you buy antibiotics, margaritas, and get a pedicure all in the same place?
Look at this Gigantic basket.... I stood next to it and it came pretty close to my waist.
El maĆ­z es muy delicioso! 
               And you can't leave Mexico without buying these fresh tortillas.
They were so, so good.
cant wait to return.

  2. What a fun place! I had to laugh when you said you could get antibiotics, margaritas and a pedicure at the same place. Love that huge basket. It reminds me of a strawberry. I'm sure I'd find SOMETHING to do with it. So glad you had a good time!

  6. Hi Marisa - I've been to Progresso also. I have a sister who with her family live in McAllen TX. Everytime we go down to visit her (we are from San Antonio) we try and make it to Weslaco. Progresso has to be one of my very favorite border towns. Nice pictures.

  10. How fun! It's nice that this town is so close to you and you are able to go whenever you want. I've only been to Cancun and what we saw was pretty commercial. Thanks for sharing.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
    Hugs, Noreen

  11. Hi Marissa, what a fun day out! I bet the tortillas taste so much better than the grocery store's. What kind of recipes do use them in?

  13. Though I have lived very close to Mexico (within twenty miles), I have never visited. Looks as if you had a delightful day. I'm sure that your cousin has done her homework on the meds...sounds too bad that she has to resort to going across the border for prescriptions, though.

  14. That is really something! I've never been there so it's fun to hear about the culture there. I love mexican food. In fact, I'm going out to eat that tonight!

  18. I love those huge flowers the girl is selling. It must be fun to just be able to run down there. It's just not the same to go up to Canada.

  19. Hi Marissa
    How exciting to pop over the border to visit Mexico!
    Looks like you had a great time! Those baskets are lovely & my mouth was watering when you mentioned the tortillas!!
    I think I would have skipped the dentist there LOL!!

    Thank you for visiting me and I'm now following you too.

    1. I wanted to thank you for the conchas recipe. We tried it last night (with a few variations to make up for what we had on hand) and it was a big hit with everyone. I think this will become a regular favorite in our household.
