And with a myriad of tours and excursions to choose from, these numbers only confirm the popularity of these top-selling tours among travelers.

So, let’s find out what makes these seven experiences stand out and unveil the secrets behind their massive success.

Cancun Passion

One of the leading tour companies in the Riviera Maya, Cancun Passion has been in the game for more than 30 years.

In addition to their available excursions, you can also book private tours to your dream destination for a more personalized experience.

Dolphin Discovery

Despite ongoing debates about animal rights and the ethical aspects of swimming with dolphins, Dolphin Discovery continues to draw a massive following among tourists. 

Travelers from around the world are irresistibly drawn to a chance to interact with these graceful and highly intelligent creatures. 


Regardless of your stance on the controversy, there’s no denying that an encounter with these charming marine mammals creates an unforgettable experience.

Moreover, many visitors commend the company’s high safety standards and commitment to the animals’ well-being.

Aventuras Mayas

Offering a five-way zipline circuit and equipped with the sturdiest ATVs in the region, Aventuras Mayas guarantees a thrilling experience away from the crowds.

Their tours also feature a variety of exciting activities, such as rappelling into the heart of the Mayan jungle, snorkeling in the crystal-clear waters of a cenote, and exploring the stunning Yal Ku Lagoon. 


What’s more, some of their excursions grant access to some of the region’s fascinating archaeological zones.


Much like Dolphin Discovery, this company has established its presence in various destinations, including Cancun, Puerto Morelos, and within the Xcaret and Xel-ha parks. 

But that’s not all: Delphinus is also the proud operator of Cancun’s renowned Interactive Aquarium at La Isla Shopping Mall.

Captain Hook

What better way to spend an unforgettable night in Cancun than aboard the legendary Captain Hook?

Sail away in an authentic replica of an XVII Spanish Galleon and prepare for a night of pure fun, complete with the iconic pirate show, music, games, and other activities.

The tour also includes dinner, salad buffet, and dessert, plus an open bar throughout the voyage.

The fact that Captain Hook has been in business for over 25 years is a testament to its reputation as one of the top nighttime tours in Cancun.


Situated in Punta Nizuc, at the southern tip of the Hotel Zone, Dolphinaris is renowned for its engaging dolphin experiences and educational approach. 

While the company also has locations in Cozumel, Tulum, and the Riviera Maya, the Nizuc location stands out for its lush tropical surroundings and an exclusive Sundeck Lounge with an infinity pool, drinks, and stunning views.

Moreover, select packages offer access to the nearby Ventura water park, which features thrilling attractions like slides, a wave pool, sunbeds, a kids’ zone, and a variety of restaurants and bars.

Xcaret Parks

As one of the leading tour operators of the Riviera Maya, Grupo Xcaret boasts eight different adventure parks, all packed with exclusive and captivating experiences.

Xcaret, their flagship park, has reigned as one of the top attractions in the Mexican Caribbean for years, offering a magical journey that intertwines nature, culture, and adventure.

Xcaret Park

Whether you’re soaring through the jungle on the highest zip line circuit in the Riviera Maya at Xplor or enjoying a tranquil float down a serene river at Xel-Ha – the array of activities available at these parks is truly endless.

Adding a unique twist to the adventure park concept, Xenses, the latest addition to the Xcaret family, features optical illusions, perspective games, and captivating visual traps.
