An indicator of place for everyone is that cruise ship tourists who arrive in Progreso, population of the Yucatecan coast, choose the Tza Ujun Kat for its facilities. The proximity on the same corner of the road that crosses Homún from El Cenote Restaurant, a spacious place where you can taste Yucatecan food, is another factor that makes it comfortable.
