Cancun walks the Red Carpet during the XXI World Travel Awards

The XXI World Travel Awards will be held in London this November, and Cancun, being a past winner is awaiting anxiously to take home another Oscar.


World Travel Awards was established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry. Today, the WTA brand is recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of quality, with winners setting the benchmark to which all others aspire.

The World Travel Awards are a much anticipated event, some even call it “The Oscar´s of the traveling World”, and this year for it´s 21st anniversary, will be held in the city of dreams, London, England.

In 2014, the Grand Tour sees WTA stage gala ceremonies in the Middle East, Africa & the Indian Ocean, South & Central America, North America & the Caribbean, Asia & Australasia, and Europe.


All regional winners then compete head to head in a final round of voting to decide who will triumph in WTA’s world awards – the ultimate accolade in the travel and tourism industry. The winners are announced on the night of the WTA Grand Finale at the end of the year.

In years before, Cancun has taken the gold for Mexico & Central America´s Leading Beach Destination, Mexico & Central America´s Leading Destination, and Mexico and Central America´s Leading Meetings & Conference Center.
