Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Mexico’s Riviera Maya was awarded three Travvy 2017 Awards, being recognized as Best Wedding Destination in Mexico and South America, Best Luxury Destination in Mexico and Best Office of Tourism in Mexico.
Travvy Awards are known as the academy of tourism industry awards, recognizing the highest standards of excellence in the travel industry by honoring travel companies and destinations for their outstanding achievements.
Winners are selected by industry professionals who know the products and the quality of the services. Awards are determined by votes from more than 100,000 travel agents who sell the vast majority of these trips.
The awards were received last week by Darío Flota Ocampo, Director of the Tourist Promotion Trust of the Riviera Maya, during a ceremony held in Gotham Hall in New York City.
“We are honored to be recognized with this award. This recognition is a testimony to the high quality that our destination offers and the great effort that our service providers have made,” he said.
