Sports and Recreation
The best—and perhaps only—reason to visit Chicxulub Puerto is for the wind sports. And for that, all roads lead to Marina Silcer (Antigua Carretera Progreso-Chicxulub km. 3.5, tel. 969/934-0491, www.marinasilcer.com, 10 a.m.–6 p.m. Tues.–Sun.). One-on-one instruction is available for all levels in windsurfing (US$167/eight 1.5-hr. sessions), sailing (US$232/four 1.5-hr. sessions for two people), and kiteboarding (US$350/six 1.5 hour sessions). You also can rent gear by two-hour increments and afterward use the marina’s semi-Olympic-size swimming pool. There’s a good seafood restaurant on-site too. To get here, turn left at the old gasoline station on the outskirts of town.
