Chile awarded as the best adventure tourism destination in the world at WTA, Lisbon

Published on : Saturday, December 8, 2018

Chile has been recognized as the best adventure tourism destination in the world at the World Travel Awards that are considered the Oscars of the international tourism industry.

 

The WTA was held in Lisbon, Portugal on Sunday (Dec. 2). Chile also retains the position as Best Destination for Adventure Tourism in South America since 2015, according to the 25th World Travel Awards.

 

The Chilean Minister of Economy, Development and Tourism, José Ramón Valente, was all praise for the recognition and assured that this area “has the potential to continue growing strongly in our economy”.

 

Valente also called on citizens to contribute to the emergence of this market: “Every time we do not throw a paper to the ground, every time we are kind to a foreigner, every time we are a country that strives to be safe. We are supporting this wonderful industry. ”

 

Undersecretary of Tourism, Monica Zalaquett, said that this award “comes to consolidate Chile as a destination” and, in that same line, emphasized that “it is not a coincidence, it is already three consecutive years where the world has decided that Chile is a destiny much more apt and much more recognized than countries like Australia, New Zealand, Ecuador (…) We compete with the big ones and the big ones we win in this matter”.

 

The World Travel Awards were established in 1993 to recognize, reward and celebrate excellence in all sectors of the tourism industry.
