I was in Progreso for 4 months last year and the kiting was great. But you only have a week and I don’t think it’s worth your travel time for only a week long trip. I would say El Cuyo is a good choice. Closer to Cancun you also have Holbox and Isla Blanca as options. I think the north shore of the Yucatán peninsula has better wind, but if you luck out Isla Blanca could be pretty good. The setup there looks pretty awesome if the wind is good.

El Cuyo is a great choice for kiting. If you're looking for other alternatives, Holbox and Isla Blanca are also good options. I have been to Mexico before, though kiting was not included in my itinerary. But I saw a lot of people kiting in Holbox and El Cuyo. I hired a local guide from Maybe they can help you with kiting packages as well.
