Ambergris Caye and Placencia win big at the 2015 World Travel Awards that took place in Bogota, Colombia over the weekend with Ambergris Caye taking the award for Leading Destination 2015 Mexico & Central America category and Placencia winning the Leading Beach Destination 2015 Mexico & Central America category.

The Heads of Tourism from all around Central America were present for the ceremony. The BTB is extremely proud and excited to announce that for the first time in the 22 years history of the World Travel Awards, Belize has won the two biggest Travel Oscars for the Continent.

Mr. Einer Gomez, Vice Chairman of the BTB's Board of Directors, accompanied by his wife attended to accept the awards. When accepting the award for Leading Beach Destination, Mr. Gomez stated, "In Belize, Placencia is locally known as "barefoot perfect." But we have more to credit than the golden sands and swaying palms for earning this award. We owe this honor to the countless stakeholders who work tirelessly to make Placencia a friendly, safe and entertaining place to visit."

Mr. Gomez accepted the award for Leading Destination and stated, "And most importantly, thank you to the people of Belize, and all the stakeholders, who commit themselves day-in-and-day-out to providing quality customer service, and for welcoming travelers into our country with open arms. Your hard work and dedication to sharing Belize with the world has clearly not gone unnoticed."

Ka’ana Resort in the Cayo District also took the award for 2015 Mexico & Central America’s Leading Boutique Resort.

Nominees were selected during a six months period by the World Travel Awards advisory committee, which consists of more than 2,700 media titles and influential tourism figureheads. The short-list was then published and the global industry, as well as travel consumers, was asked to vote for whom they deemed were the best in each category.
