ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--It’s no secret that most parents want their families to do more than just build sandcastles on their vacations in Mexico. That’s why Delta Vacations, a leading provider of world-class, tailored vacation packages, revealed today its list of the top 10 cultural tours and excursions in Mexico.
Sure, the beach is always great, but research from Delta Vacations indicates moms – the primary vacation planners for most families – are increasingly adding cultural experiences to their vacations in Mexico. In fact since 2011, Delta Vacations sales of cultural tours have consistently seen double-digit growth.
“We see evidence every day that families want more enriching and immersive experiences while on vacation,” said MLT Vacations President John Caldwell. “These tours, along with an abundance of other historical and cultural treasures throughout the country, are great opportunities to add more diversity to traditional resort vacations.”
Of course, moms are not leaving the beach behind. But with so many opportunities (Mexico features more than 30 United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage sites), it’s easy for families to plan day trips to explore ancient Mayan ruins, swim in a natural spring cave or discover Mexico’s colonial heritage as part of their vacations.
