Placencia in the Stann Creek District was named leading beach destination for Mexico and Central America, while Ambergris Caye was nominated in that category and won the category of Mexico and Central America’s leading overall destination. Also nominated were Bladen Nature Reserve for leading nature reserve and the Belize Tourism Board (BTB) for leading tourism board in the region.

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, were asked to vote for whom they deemed were the best in each category.

Einer Gomez, Vice Chairman of the BTB’s Board of Directors, accepted on Belize’s behalf.

Gomez said of Placencia, “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.”

Of Ambergris Cay he 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.”

The Belize Tourism Board issued its thanks to the entire industry for their hard work and dedication.
