Tripadvisor is the world’s largest travel platform and every year it selects winners of the Travelers’ Choice Awards determined using an algorithm and based on millions of reviews and ratings from travelers around the world over a 12-month period. Year after year, the positive reviews of travelers help determine the awards in the categories of popular destinations, attractions, experiences, hotels, restaurants, and airlines. This year Mexico received several awards in the category of popular destinations and top experiences in Mexico.
