Summer may not be the busiest season in Cancun, but it gets its fair share of summer tourists.
Many of these tourists want to enjoy one or more tours while on vacation.
Boat tours, Mayan ruins tours, cenote tours, and water activities like scuba diving and snorkeling are all popular among tourists.
Tours range in price from about $40 to as much as a few hundred bucks.
But now prices are set to rise for the first time in a while and could rise as much as 35 percent, though pricing will be determined by each individual tour operator.
With the rise in price inevitable, now is the time to book tours, and these are the top Cancun tours to book before prices soar.

Rising Tour Prices
The rising tour prices are due in part to the absence of an increase for quite some time and in part due to inflation and the rate of exchange.
According to the director of the Nautical Associates of Quintana Roo, Ricardo Muleiro López, the increase is estimated to be “greater than 30 percent.”
He commented that “The 35% adjustment would be the average of the rates, after an increase in the same proportion in operating costs, also a result of the exchange rate against the dollar.”
There is no word on when the change will take place, but all indications are that it will be soon.
