World Travel Awards Recognitions in Ecuador
According to the World Travel Awards, Ecuador is also considered the number one destination to visit in Latin America and the seventh must-visit place in the world in this year. With the highest active volcanoes in the world, the greatest concentration of species by area, white sand beaches and the breathtaking Galapagos Islands are just a few reasons why Ecuador received recognition as the “Green Destination of the World for 2015.
Our country has also made considerable progress in connecting roadways and even it has continued operating the Tren Crucero (Cruise Train), which brings the memories of the century-old locomotive built to connect different Ecuadorian cities, like Quito and Guayaquil. Due this, this train was nominated to the recognition of the ‘Best South America’s Leading Luxury Train’, by the World Travel Awards, organization that serves to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the global travel and tourism industry.
WTA has identified also sites such as Cuenca as the Best Destination for Retirement during the past five years, according to International Living and now as the Adventure Site for 2015.
The amazing Galapagos Islands were nominated as the Safest Bet for Surfing, according to Surfline.com but also the Quilotoa as one of the most beautiful volcanic lakes on the planet, according to TwistedShifter.com.
Because of its environmental and biological diversity, entertainment and adventure, we can offer every traveler the best experience. In spite Ecuador is one of the smallest countries of South America, it is considered a year-round destination, where tourists have the chance of exploring the Andes Mountains, relax under the Amazon, sight-see along the beaches of the Pacific Coast or observe the Natural Heritage of Humanity site of the Galapagos Islands.
