Three Mexican states were recognized this week at the Madrid International Tourism Fair (FITUR).
The Spanish magazine Excelencias, which specializes in the tourism sector, handed out Excellence in Tourism awards to Oaxaca, Nayarit and Jalisco.
Oaxaca was singled out for its wealth as a multicultural destination, recognized around the world for its culture, gastronomy and artisans. As well, the coastal tourist destination town of Huatulco earned an honorable mention for having achieved the platinum level of the international certification program EarthCheck.
The state of Nayarit was awarded for its Social and Environmental Responsibility program, whose efforts towards sustainability have led to conservation projects such as the protection of the Islas Marietas, EarthCheck Nuevo Vallarta and Blue Flag beach certification.
In Jalisco, Puerto Vallarta was recognized for the restructuring of the Convention & Visitors Bureau.
The awards program attracted 1,800 entries this year; there were 50 winners in various categories, who were chosen by a panel of 12 judges.
This year’s Madrid tourism fair is the 34th, and is expected to attract 200,000 people from around the world.
