MLT Vacations has announced its list of its top 10 bestselling cultural tours in Mexico.
Since 2011, sales of cultural tours, one of the leading tour categories, have consistently seen double-digit growth.
“Travelers are not leaving the beach behind,” said MLT Vacations President John Caldwell. “But they are looking to add more diverse, enriching and immersive cultural experiences to their vacations, which is great news for travel professionals wanting to create more value for their clients.”
Mexico has more than 30 United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage sites. Cultural tours and excursions offered by Delta Vacations and Aeromexico Vacations range from exploring Chichen-Itza, one of the "New 7 Wonders of the World" to discovering Cuernavaca, the "City of Eternal Spring” and Taxco, the “Silver Capital of the World.”
The list of 10 bestselling cultural tours:
- Chichen Itza Plus – Cancun
- Los Cabos City Tour – Los Cabos
- Coba Maya Encounter – Cancun
- Isla Contoy - Cancun
- Cozumel highlights – Cancun
- Tulum/Akumal – Cancun

- Puerto Vallarta City Tour – Puerto Vallarta
- Mexico City Historical Tour – Mexico City

“Cancun typically dominates our tour and excursion sales,” said Caldwell. “So, it’s exciting to see destinations along Mexico’s west coast and its colonial cities expanding and making our top 10 list.”
Not quite making the list, but growing year-over-year as well, is the Cuernavaca and Taxco tour in Mexico City and the Cenote Ik kil swimming experience available with vacation packages to Merida.
