- Many of our residents travel to Mexico. There are still some safe places to visit. Mostly Nuevo Progresso. This used to be called Las Flores but with the influx years ago of so manyu Winter Texans it is now known as Progresso. There is shopping for all types of souvenirs including boots, furniture, leather and pottery goods, clothes, alcohol (duty free), cigarettes, cigars and plenty more. Licensed dentists, physicians and specialists keep their offices close to the border and offer their patients great medical care. Drug stores also offer pharmaceuticals at great prices. Stroll through the market while you sip an icy margarita, Corona or other beverage for prices you won't believe or dine at the many restaurants that serve steak, seafood and authentic Mexican cuisine. You will find the people of Progresso very willing to help you out in any way they can!
