The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) entered into the Tourist Offices category. Hotels, resorts and spas, amusement parks and theme parks, and travel agencies, among others, also participated.
“Credibility is one of the main factors behind a company’s choice to participate in tourism awards,” stated Golden Tree Events, which organizes three global awards programs each year in the tourism, hospitality, and wellness industry.
