Muelle de Chocolate

Boulevard Turístico Malecón
Progreso, Yucatan Mexico

The Muelle de Chocolate, or Chocolate Pier, is a public access space that is alongside the world’s largest pier, Progreso’s Puerto de Altura. The Chocolate Pier is much smaller and more inviting, just six meters wide and 314 meters long, and has benches for visitors to relax and enjoy the sea. In March 2019, the city installed an unusual sculpture depicting visitors gazing at their cellphones rather than the view.

Its name refers to the historic trans-Atlantic trade route between France and Mexico.

In 2009, it was built on the site of the former Fisherman’s Wharf, which was made of wood and damaged by hurricanes. Approximately the first 20 meters of the new pier are made of wood, reminiscent of the old dock, while the rest is made of concrete. At the end, boats can access a docking platform.
