Tour Recognized Globally – Information For Travelers
Each year, the popular online travel agency TripAdvisor announces awards for the very best things that the travel world has to offer. From hotels to beaches, tours to experiences, TripAdvisor calculates its annual awards based on the quality and quantity of traveler reviews and ratings before collating an ultimate list of the Best of the Best for travelers. This year, a popular tour located in Cancun has made the list, cementing its status as one of the best tours in the world.
The Chichen Itza, Cenote and Valladolid All-Inclusive Tour came in at 20th in TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice awards in the Top Overall Experiences category, making it the only tour from Mexico to make the cut and the fifth-highest tour from North America to feature on the exclusive list. With an average rating of five out of five stars based on just over 9,000 reviews from travelers, the tour’s page states that it is recommended by 96% of travelers – statistics that played their part in the tour being featured in the Best of the Best list.
The tour has a price of just $59 per person and can be booked directly through the TripAdvisor website. According to its description, travelers will visit Chichén Itzá, the Saamal cenote, and Valladolid, soaking in the knowledge from the tour guide before cooling off in the fresh waters of the cenote. One of Cancun’s biggest attractions, the stunning Chichén Itzá, was recently named one of the major bucket list destinations for this year and is a truly must-see destination offering a taste of what life was like hundreds of years ago.
Cenote Saamal is a natural, open-aired sinkhole that’s perfect for swimming in. Cenotes are one of Cancun’s most recognizable natural features, and Saamal comes equipped with locker rooms and showers, allowing guests the chance to prepare for a comfortable swim in the deep-blue, limestone-surrounded waters. Just down the road on the tour is the scenic town of Valladolid, a charming spot with colorful buildings, colonial-style churches, and a slice of authentic Mexican culture – a perfect escape from the frantic streets of Cancun.
The tour’s $59 USD price included hotel door-to-door drop-off, as well as a buffet lunch, though travelers will still have to pay the entrance fee to Chichén Itzá separately. The vast majority of the reviews online have gushed about the beauty of the locations included and are effusive in their praise of the knowledgeable tour guides, which can truly make or break a tour.
Cancun and the rest of the Riviera Maya are incredible destinations with all sorts of things to see and experience. This latest highlight of one of the world’s best tours is further proof that travelers love this incredible destination, and it certainly won’t be the last time the area sees such high praise.
